I feel like such a noob. I used Blogspot, beginning in 2009. Ages ago. I could add widgets, edit some HTML, and pretty up my blog to suit me.
WordPress has a bit of a learning curve. And by ‘bit’, I mean curves like Lombard Street in San Francisco. So many twists and turns!
I have no idea how to do more than typing a paragraph. And even that is hit and miss.
I know that, eventually, I’ll figure it out. But as I age, I am realizing my brain takes a bit more time to process the instructions and turn them into actions. In addition, so much time on the Internet has caused my attention span to lack patience – I want immediate gratification. I bitch at the microwave for taking so long to reheat food. I bitch at my cell phone if it doesn’t load apps or search results in a nanosecond.
Even with this book to aid me.
Maybe what I mean to say is I’m a brain-addled bitch. Six of one, half dozen of the other.
Focus, Kim, focus. Oh, have I mentioned I’m easily distracted?
Anyway, I hope you’ll have patience with me as I navigate the world of WordPress’ themes, widgets, and page customization. If any of you have tips, I’d appreciate them (and give you credit in future posts as this page becomes the communications masterpiece it is meant to be). Or something like that.
Buckle up. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride for a while.
NOTE: Yes, I do read other blogs. And when I find out how to add them to the ‘Blogs I Follow’ heading on the right side of the page, I will.
I can relate to the grandma business, but whatever you write about, I will be reading. Happy foir your return.
I sympathize with all my 70 years urging me to use every moment wisely. Enjoy and breathe and then I throw a fit when I need to understand the Audible lengthy contract or register on my audiobook on Findaway, an all-day affair for me. I still haven’t registered. -Lynn
