“it’s me . . . “
” i was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet
to go over everything . . . ”
it seemed quite appropriate to insert “Adele ~ au currant ” into my first “hello” from my new home.
back in 2010, when i began blogging, the first place i opened was at WordPress. i never posted here because i discovered most of the blogs that i followed were using a more “user-friendly” site called google blogger. blogger welcomed me into an amazing worldwide connection. for that alone, i am grateful.
one day last november, nearly five years to the date that i began blogging, blogger stopped working efficiently for me. it took hours for my posts to publish. since there is little to no support at blogger, i became frustrated and nearly gave up. i read in their forum that i was not the only one experiencing the problem. i sent several requests for help. no response. no longer friendly to me.
i am a big believer in “signs”. perhaps five years later, i received a sign to return to where i began.
it is a little more difficult to navigate here, but the support is good and helpful.
i plan to keep it simple. posting each friday, with a few exceptions like “breaking news”, the random i cannot wait ’til friday to share “just one pic”, or an occasional revival of a post from the past.
WP is kind of cool. the theme i am currently using enabled me to play with imagery allowing a subtle appearance of writing on a grain sack.
words woven within images . . . the very definition of blogging.
now that this place is up and running, i will be back in circulation once again. thank you for listening, for your encouragement, and for following me through this transition. i hope my new home makes you feel welcome.
“hello from the other side!”
“at least i can say that i have tried ! “
. . . still on 34th street.
