BUSTED: The Perils of Two Websites

SUBTITLE:
SEDUCED BY WORDPRESS CUSTOMER SUPPORT–AGAIN

I  try very hard to sort out problems before I contact WordPress support, but this week I finally reached such a level of frustration I was considering changing themes which, of course, carries its own challenges.

AN ASIDE:
Does anyone else remember when “challenges” were just called pains-in-the-patoot?

I am happy to report that I threw caution to the winds and invested in a Premium account for my new website creatingyourimages.com, and I was able to get directly to a live chat (as opposed to the hopelessly moronic “virtual” chats available on other sites that will remain anonymous. Hewlett-Packard.)

I have written so many reviews praising WordPress and their help, that I feel reasonably sure even they are sick of them. I won’t repeat myself here, as that isn’t the point of this blog.

The point is this: In the process of helping me with the most recent evidence that I am technologically challenged (and a royal pain-in-the-arse), my support person revealed to me that the sidebar he had suggested as a solution to the problem can have AN UNLIMITED NUMBER OF WIDGETS!!!!!

I am a woman out of control. So far, I have: An Image; A Map: a Gallery; and the widget that has inspired this blog.

My sidebar has a link to us right here, folks–dean speaks out

And here’s the rub.  Every day when I log in to admire my new site and tinker a bit more (almost certainly the source of many of my problems), I see the featured images and excerpts from my last three blog posts. I’ve been looking at the same three for what seems like a while.

Hence the current post. I’M HERE. I’M DEAN. I’M SPEAKING OUT 🙂

Busted.

In my own defense, I am hard at work rewriting a manuscript and doing everything I can to complicate a beautifully simple theme on the new site.

If you have a chance, please check out creatingyourimages.com. It’s a small online business and, at the very least, I can guarantee you can’t find what I’m offering anywhere else.

That aside, now that I have caught up on my blog posts, I expect to make a cup of tea and spend the rest of my evening finding more widgets for my sidebar.

CHECK OUT THE WEBSITE.
CHRISTMAS IS AROUND THE CORNER.

  1. Finding more widgets for my sidebar sounds like a new way to play a very old game or a 1940’s film noir movie starring Elmer Fudd!
