I’m so excited to say that after 10 years posting this blog, I figured it was time to give this ol’ girl a little renovation! So with the help of my Excellent WordPress Tech Person, Trish, I upgraded the look of my little page to something a little more modern and eye-friendly! A THOUSAND thanks, Trish! To be fair, the old web design I was using, “Coraline” had been retired. So a new year, a new look!
I’ve also added a “Buy me a Coffee Cup of Tea” Button above right so if you like what you see here, you can donate to me above (and here) with one click! This will really help to support the financial end of this blog. Sadly, since Covid began, I haven’t been able to to do much Substitute Teacher aide work so any contribution is welcome <3 (but no obligation!)
I hope you’ll enjoy the new look, and I’ll probably make a few tweaks here and there as time goes on. (Wondering if I can add my own custom font to the header above). Let me know how you like it! It certainly inspires me to write more posts! (and a little more variety too!) With luck it will go on for another 10 years!
Thank you all my readers for helping to make this site a reality! Be sure to check the archives (here on the right by the month and year) to catch up on anything you missed! (Over a 1000 posts!)
If this page looks a bit goofy to you, I understand. I’ve been trying to upgrade it with a “Buy Me A Coffee” button so I can accept little donations to help me pay for this site. I upgraded my membership with WordPress (a whopping $300+ for two years) so I could install the ‘coffee’ widget button However at present I haven’t figured out how to have the button actually appear on the page!
As you can see, all the ‘widgits’ that usually appear on either sides of the central column of text here have now all been shoved to the side, and I haven’t figured out yet how to put them back. It also changed the background color to the new articles to yellow instead of deep purple. (Huh?) All I wanted to do was to add the button at the top of the page, but when I added it, it only gives me a link (that I can only see here in my editing section) to a separate page which seems to to be starting a whole new blog page! –Not what I had in mind.
I am now wondering if I should just transfer this 10 years of posting to the new page or what? I don’t really want to change what I had here originally.
My two computer-whiz sons will be helping me with this. But if any of you have blogs here on WordPress could you send me any suggestions? Help!
In the meantime, I am writing bits that I will post them here soon, and I appreciate your patience!
Hope you’re staying well and having a lovely holiday season! I will have more posts up before Christmas! -Therese <3
