Stasis

My web site is in stasis right now. I cannot EVEN begin to tell you of the ordeals I have been through getting this up. I am way to cheap to pay anyone to install the things I need, so I am doing it by myself. After all, I have a Ph.D. I should be able to get a web site up and running. Right. The web site is up ( I would say, up and crawling). It looks nice. I have my main page up (gorgeous), but my blog is not yet even up, let alone crawling. I decided to use WordPress as my blogging software. I wanted a powerful blogging software that would allow me to use my own template. I can do this with blogger, tis very true. I wanted to put in category support. No can do with blogger, not easily anyway. I also wanted some additional tabs for everything else, without having to make up separate blogs for my sewing, makeup, etc that I didn't want on my "main" blog. Wordpress seemed like the answer. The only problem is that I can't seem to get it working. I may have fixed the problem, but I have to wait for my hosting to update which can take up to 72 hours for me. The other problem is that while I am sure Wordpress has very good help and FAQs, they weren't really much help to me because the silly site works intermittently for me. So I wasn't able to access any of the forums. What I ended up doing was Google searches, then I would look at the cached page. A bit crude, but effective in the end. In the meantime I decided to come on over a give an update on what I have been doing. If anyone ever goes over to my other blog, you know that site has all but been abandoned. I was going to start posting some of my fiction over there, but I ain't writtin' no fiction in a lOOOOOOng time. I have a few scribbled notes but not much. I also bought a domain for that as well and when I finally get the kinks worked out of wordpress, I get that site up and running. Although to be honest I'll probably just keep blogger on that account. For now. Maybe. I'll see. Makes me tired just thinking of it. I just needed to take the time to sit down and DO this. I can't get it done at home because of the kids, and the fact that my battery died. Oh, don't even get me started on my battery, like where is it and will I ever see it again? Speaking of which I am calling those yahoo's right now. I hope to have a skeleton site up this weekend. OK. Let me put it this way, I'll move over to the new site regardless of what has happened this weekend.
