Yesterday and today I’ve been mostly messin’ about on WordPress, having a look around, seeing what I can do, finding out what works and what doesn’t. At the moment I’m still very much learning. I do have a head start in that I’ve been Blogging for more than 6 years and most of the techniques are the same, it’s just finding them.
I think I’m almost there. If all goes well, the old place will stay in the old place for a while. I think I’ve managed to import everything that I needed, blog-post body-wise. I’m just still messing about with the sidebars and colours.
Therefore, please DO let me know what you think, what you loved on the old one if that’s where you came from (and if you didn’t, here’s the link), what you thought was a waste of time and effort, what you’d like to see on this one, and basically how you think it’s panning out.
Please, be as honest as you want. If there’s one thing I do do, it’s pay attention to constructive criticism. I might not always act on it, but I do always consider it. If you’re struggling to see the colours, say so. If you don’t like the header, say so. Likewise, if you love it, say so. I want people to read my blog, so I want it to be as easy as possible. And I want to know how easy, or not, it is for you to comment.
Oh, and while we’re feeling honest, please also let me know what you’d like to read about – my life, my writing, my travels, my pets, whatever. And let me know if you want tips, suggestions, rants (ahem …), guests, and so on. Or not.
I’ll have my first guest post on Wednesday, so that will be interesting, and hopefully everybody that wants to will have found their way over here.
The little man’s watching too much telly again. Time to kick him up the backside.
