Time To Grow Up And Get Serious

I publish most of what I write on my Medium page. The only problem with doing so limits your access. You, my faithful followers here on WordPress. Unless you cough up $5.00 per month, Medium limits the number of stories you get to see.

I’m not okay with that.

So I’m making a drastic change to the way I publish my stories. Starting today, while I will continue to publish the occasional story on Medium, the majority of my writing will be published right here, on my own website.

I hope this will make it easier to find my works.

The Perils of WordPress Page Design

I used to design web sites. I’ve even taught classes is web page creation. HTML, CSS, the whole nine yards. So modifying the design of a WordPress blog template should be a piece of cake, right?

Wrong! I can download the CSS source code for my site, modify it to my heart’s delight, and upload it back to my blog.

But only some of the changes I made are actually implemented.

So I used my browser’s “View Page Source” function to see if I could figure out what’s going on….

…only to discover that between my stylesheet, the ones it references, and WordPress’ own modifications, there are at least a half dozen pages I’d need to modify…and I don’t have the necessary permissions to do that.

And so I’m back to the original template I chose when I started this blog all those months ago.

It’s a nice them,even pretty. And now I’m wondering why I even wanted to change it in the first place.

I’ll just chalk it up to my ADHD.

The theme, if you’re interested, is “Bouquet,” by WordPress.
