I’m afraid my blog/journal, whatever you call it, is never consistently about a topic similar to the previous one(s). Sometimes it might be, but not usually. I am all over the map in this place. I write whatever is foremost in my gray-matter at the current time.
For the past several days I’ve been immersed in all-things-WordPress. I feel like my brain cells are deteriorating and even dying off lately… constantly forgetting words that I know I knew before but just cannot remember them when I want them.
After learning that my old blog-host site, JournalScape, was closing up shop on November 1st of this year, I quickly jumped into action and got all the necessary information I would need to move my 7 years of blog over to a new home – here at WordPress.
I already had a blog going here at WordPress, called Crow Cottage, Actually. But for some reason, I found it difficult to use and I can’t really remember why. Kenny W., the JournalScape guru, told us that WordPress was his recommendation but that we could move our files anywhere we wanted. Since I had used WP already, I came over here and opened up a new site called “Thoughts From Crow Cottage,” the same as at JournalScape. And here I am. Tweaking the live-long days!
There are so many options to choose from, once I choose something and save/update it, and when I want to go back there, I’ve totally forgotten how to get to that page. There are too many options!
So now that I’ve got it to a reasonably nice appearance and readability, I’m going to go backwards and read up on how to use WordPress (there is a link to that effect over in my “Blogroll” in the right-hand column.) I should have read this to start with, but figured I’d go it alone. I don’t know if I’ll find the answers to my questions… heck, I can’t even remember the questions I had! You see? Getting old is not for the weak of spirit!
