I remember our first computer – a Commodore 64 with a tape drive. I literally had to type in programs I found in a computer magazine, then save them to the tape drive so I could run them. I justified the purchase on the basis that I had an idea about the upcoming computer revolution, and I wanted out daughter to be familiar and comfortable with them from the start (I think she was three years old at the time).
As we all know, things kept moving forward to an astonishing degree. The formation of the internet, wireless technology, WYSIWYG (hah! remember that? What you see is what you get – a huge leap forward at the time), websites, blogs, and the importance of SEO so people could find you.
It has become apparent to me recently of the limitations of the stock WordPress platforms, so I’m going to be moving my blog to GoDaddy. I have all these ideas in my head about what I want my blog/website to do, and WP just doesn’t seem to be up to the task.
Of course, the problem I run up against is I have virtually no idea of what I’m doing, or how to accomplish my vision as I move forward here. The good news is that one of my personal goals as I retire is to keep moving forward, learning new things and challenging myself . So, this is a very long way to ask for your forbearance as I jump head first into the deep end of the pool! My old links won’t work anymore for awhile, but I’ll try and find ways to keep you connected and updated on the pitfalls and successes of this new endeavor. Thanks for reading!!
