There is a saying, I am too old to buy green bananas. I feel myself at that crossroad more and more these days. Should I invest my time in something new? The answer for me is rarely clear. One such decision has been whether to set up and learn WordPress.
I have been dissatisfied with Blogger (the application I use to post my blog). I knew WordPress would be more professional, and eventually less problematic. The time it would take to develop a comfort level with a new to me application just didn’t seem worth it. Instead I
wasted spent hours reading up on WordPress, checking out the various tools and Plugins, and watching videos.
Several weeks ago I screwed up my courage and asked my website host to help me set up a WordPress site (url). Techie #1 did this, but in the process brought down my personal website, something I didn’t realize until I needed to check my website for something. Techie #2 managed to get both up. Phew!
The next step has been setting up the behind the scenes things, such as layout, color schemes, and a few pages. One of the advantages of WordPress is it can be used as a website, too. That is why I gave in and decided to give WordPress a try. It is only a matter of time, before my current website platform may not be functional. The miracle is it has lasted as long as it has.
It looks like I can buy those green bananas after all. First post on WordPress. Done! Starting a new art project. Check! Beginning to feels though I am turning back the clock.
