Don’t answer! Let me just believe you’ve been pining away, wondering about where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing.
Side Note: When I was in high school, my best friend and I didn’t do all the “coolest” things. I’m not sure why…we probably weren’t allowed. So, we’d hang out and think about what all the “cool” people were doing together. Then we decided they were probably wondering where WE were. And they were probably thinking WE were doing something even cooler than they were. 🙂
So what is the cool thing, I’ve been doing?
Redoing my site!!
What do you think?
I decided it was time for a change. I finally made the switch from a wordpress.com site to a wordpress.org site. For those of you who don’t know, it opens up the site from a customization perspective. With some of the additional things I’m planning (insert maniacal laugh here) I needed that flexibility.
It’s not free, like the wordpress.com site so it was a big decision for me – remember I’m on the frugal side. I did a lot of research on how to move forward and thought I had it all covered (insert sarcastic laugh here).
Once I made the switch, I was lost. I’m not afraid to say it. I could not figure things out. I mean it worked but it did not look good. Then because I didn’t know what to do, I was updating the old site and the new site. Ugh!
I decided that was dumb so I quite updating until I figured out what to do. And, I bit down on the bullet even harder and decided to hire a designer. I did a bunch of research and reached out to a quite a few.
Guess what happened? Almost none of them got back to me. I know, I couldn’t believe it either!
Finally, after more and more research, I found Laura Green. She did the design, was responsive, and fit my price range.
So, now this piece of my “new stuff” is just about complete (insert sigh of relief). Of course, I thought this would take about a week and has wound up taking a month. Isn’t that always the way? But, let’s focus on the positive, we’re here!
And, guess what else? My Facebook page is also updated!
Anyway, I think the site looks good. It’s me – simple but nice. Although I’m still updating some things, I’d love your thoughts. Did I miss something? Is anything off? Let me know in the comments below!
