What have you all been up to this weekend?
I’ve finally finished my most recent organizing and minimizing project last week. Yesterday and today was spent organizing my writing and blogging workflow, pulling posts from my FB page to move here.
While traveling, I posted directly to my Facebook FG2A Page, when I should have posted to this blog, THEN to Facebook. I have learned my lesson, and will be paying the price until I transcribe the posts and move the photos to this blog. Click here to Learn from my fail.
I’ve also been doing some Under the hood maintenance on the “dark side” of my site.
Most people probably hire someone. I have loads of time, and so far learning WordPress is a fun project. I wouldn’t turn down a WordPress Guru Mentor, though – so if you know someone, let me know!
I realized, early this morning, that I had neglected the care and feeding of my blog, far beyond just the lack of posting. The plugins (pieces of code that do certain tasks) weren’t working, and seemingly had disappeared. They didn’t disappear, just were hidden, and I had to set up FTP software and take a look in the background.
I’ve used FTP software in the past, just not with my hosted blog. I was nervous, but it turned out to be just as easy as it was before. I did have a tense few moments, though. A plugin had to be deleted before I could reinstall it, and when I deleted it from the server, many things and many subfiles were deleting right before my eyes. I have several more plugins to delete. Deleting is scary, especially if you don’t have a backup.
Creating a backup is next on my list.
