I’ve come to a spork in the road.
Since my blogging adventure began, the design of my website has changed on a couple of occasions. The first change was cosmetic, the second by accident. I was experimenting with WordPress ‘Customizer’ (honestly, just tinkering, no malice intended), when I inadvertently hit the wrong tab and obliterated my old design. The new theme was merciless, wreaking havoc with my site, juxtaposing images, eradicating menus, dissolving uniformity.
A year’s worth of archives, jumbled.
And to my chagrin, the cure-all ‘revert to original’ option turned out to be a placebo, WordPress had retired my old theme.
After hours of editing and re-editing, the current site was born. But, like the creation of the spork; a melding of two divergent streams, an evolution of blog was inevitable.
I’m looking to move away from a standard blogging site, towards more of an Author’s Page.
Which author you ask?
Ha, good one.
With my eventual leap into the self-publishing pool pending, I’m looking to change things up a bit, not a lot, but a bit. Creating a generic landing page, one with a link to my existing blog, creates the perfect environment, a convergence of goals, a practical solution. Like the spork.
Is this simply a tactic to avoid writing?
Fear not however, my blog posts will continue (I hear the collective sigh of relief –or was that a collective eye roll? – yes definitely eye roll).
But change is a necessary evil, in a world of static complacency and compulsive tinkering.
In the near future, if you happen to pop by the site and discover a new landing page, one that looks like it was designed by a dyslexic Webmaster running Windows 95, I’ve probably hit the wrong tab again.
Be patient, I’m working on it.
And if nothing has changed, disregard this post entirely.
Until next time,
