Once More Into the Breach, Y’all

I’ve always maintained that I’m not a programmer, developer, or coder. I haven’t a clue what I’m doing in the back end of my website and prefer to NEVER go there. I don’t DO PhP and I don’t mess with CSS, either. (I was really proud of myself when I finally got HTML, but wouldn’t you know, I hardly deal with HTML.)

I use the Genesis framework for WordPress to run my website. Genesis makes everything easier for coders, developers, and programmers and is very security conscious. If you’re not a coder, developer, or programmer you’re pretty much lost. My website has stayed the same for years because, well, I’m pretty much lost. However, I just discovered that I could change from the Genesis framework and Genesis child themes and go to something a heck of a lot more user friendly.

Color me thrilled.

I finished the book on Christmas night, so it has been put away for awhile to percolate. I don’t touch it during this time. My mind, however, is still thinking about it so I will be making notes to make sure I said certain things, or that character issues are spelled out, that descriptions are adequate, that sort of thing. January 15th I will start the final read of the book on my Kindle. I’ve already had the computer read it to me, so that’s done.

All of that frees me up to screw up my website to my heart’s content.

So, if you see things that look weird or broken, don’t panic. That’s just me messing everything up and hopefully having a wonderful time doing it. 🙂

  1. Hi Karen,
    Congratulations on finishing your book! Hope that you and Sir Stanley are well.

    Merry, late, Christmas! I’m sorry I missed you. I have a new grandbaby that was born a preemie, then got sick, so I’ve been spending most of my time with him and the other grandchildren.

    Have a Happy and safe New Year’s!

  2. Best of luck – when I first saw a computer, I had to ask for help to find the “ON” button. I have progressed since then but not much.

    • I once got a job because I was the only person who knew how to turn on the electric typewriter. It was one of the ones that pre-dated the Selectric.

      Fun times. 🙂
