I saw a t-shirt once that said, “I repel technology” and I need to have it and wear it every single day.
The only reason I know anything at all, like making links, organizing blogs, uploading images, and all that EASY stuff, is because life forced me into working online. Everyone seems to have born with technology knowledge that I just can’t seem to grasp. And when I do understand it, it feels alien to me. Unnatural. Like I am trying to live in a world where I do not belong.
This morning I posted a blog on my SeashellsbyMillhill blog, and then I began thinking about upgrading. From there, I viewed the themes, including premium themes. After a while I decided on one called Gridiculous Pro. It looked so nice, something I could personalize with my photos and stories. BUT… I bought it and began to try to customize and had trouble. The changes didn’t show while I was making them, the colors gave me trouble, and all in all I just didn’t think it was worth the trouble AND money. Fortunately WordPress lets you cancel a purchase within a certain amount of time.
The real problem is that I know so little and have to rely on the easy customization. I can’t do CSS – don’t even ask me what that is. Some sort of code, that would probably make my site look marvelous.
So I wasted time figuring out which theme I wanted, then wasted time fiddling around trying to make it look nice. Once I cancelled my upgrade order, my site reverted to the old theme… except it wasn’t the same old theme. So I had to re-do my “old” theme to make it viewable. Now the whole thing looks completely different, but I guess it’s okay. And change is good now and then.
