I spent pretty much all weekend picking a theme, exporting, importing and emailing for help. I must be computer illiterate but I found, and am still finding, this whole process daunting to say the least.
Exporting my domains, its now girl and postcards from a semi-mad woman, from where they were (don’t ask) and importing to WordPress was relatively easy. With the help of Lizthefair I got through this unscathed. On to mapping my domain (don’t ask) after an hour of staring at the map domain page I had “postcards” in the que. Whether to hit purchase or wait, well I still have my finger on the trigger. Poor Lizthefair.
I thought to myself move on, leave this mapping thing for a while, pick a theme. I picked “Blogy”. I purchased this theme as I thought it looked to be an easy beginner blog site. It may be. I have yet to figure out why when I look at it I see pretty panels and color and a header of bubble looking things. When I leave and go to my site it is solid coral with just my writing. Blah.
Yes I’m mad. Mad at myself for being such a dumbass that I can’t set up what is supposed to be an easy blog site. Mad at myself for spending this much time on it. Mad that after spending this much time on it I am still only one quarter of the way to where I want to be. Is this the fun part of blogging? So far for me it is not.
I hope my fellow BloggingU bloggers had more fun and were more successful at finding their theme. For me I am waiting for another email from Lizthefair and one from the developers of Blogy.
I’m getting ready to have a cocktail it is finally 5:00pm, watch some football and close this laptop down until tomorrow.
