This is going to be a short post so that I can play around with the nuts and bolts of WordPress, the blog host service I’m using. If I only wanted to blather on in the posts it wouldn’t be a problem, I’d just type and hit publish. But pictures are more fun, I think. As is typical with me though, things seem to be going swimingly and then disaster strikes and suddenly adding
pictures into some text is like wrestling snakes, and pictures are popping up where I don’t want them, and I can’t add text anymore where I do want it, and things refuse to move, and you see pictures that are way too big for your screen and take 20 minutes to load…and then I have hot flashes.
So I did some reading up and I found out I was using the wrong browser for one thing. Interestingly, a lot of applications do
not work in Google Chrome but must be run in Safari or Firefox. WordPress prefers Firefox.
I have also had to learn how to use iPhoto, which is not particularly intuitive and actually required that I read some of the directions. Bummer.
Ok, so far so good. I’ve inserted pictures where I want them without a single new gray hair being added to my head-of course who’s counting? You all will have to let me know if they’re the appropriate size and don’t take 24 hours to load, ok? I have lots of pictures to show from this weekend, but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow as I have to go to bed. Meredith and I have orientation tomorrow.
