So far…

…I’m finding this blogging format clunky and stupid. This window is like a stripped-down version of Xanga’s with no font options. I created a post with photos of my desk refinishing project and when I tried to post it I got a flag: “Unauthorized”.

Go to hell, WordPress.

    No, no. No!! I refuse to let you hate WordPress so SOON. You must wait two weeks to hate WordPress. And you must blog here!! Must! I don’t know in re: photos, but I bet we can figure it out. Embrace change!

    seriously, this entire platform is like one huge labyrinth to get from one function to another. basically, it sucks goat butt.

    I felt that way too but the longer I am here the easier it is getting or be and for me it is working. Sorry it is not what you are looking for and I do hope Xanga continues but I am staying here.

  4. if you get the design upgrade ($30), I believe you can change the fonts and such on the actual theme and in the editor. just give it some time πŸ™‚

    • One of the weirdest things is to look at Freshly Pressed and see all kinds of carefully written pieces about things that matter. It’s almost intimidating. So different from Xanga’s very trivial front page.

  5. ha! You’ve made me afraid to even try. But then I read OBL and feel like a could jump off a cliff and not die. But, if this is where you beautiful peoples land, I will have to follow you.

    Yeah I don’t know how to make “uncategorized” not to be default. Inability to change the font was something to get used to. Wait till it acts like it posted but it didn’t really. Aside from that it is not so bad.

  7. Hey Tim, wow, I finally found you. Oh man, how I have been searching for you…. Anyway, I am glad to see you and hope you haven’t left. I too have a hard time, trying find my way around. But I am sure I will get there.

    I don’t mind WP, I agree that it’s clunky and the lack of reformatting power is just plain rude! But it’s better than Blogger and I figured that if I wanted to be closer to Xangans, WP was the next best thing. Hope you refuel and try again. πŸ™‚

    • I’ll get the hang of it. I know just enough to get by but I don’t know the tricks, and it looks like there are a lot, like these little doohickeys on my Reply to Comment window.

      • shannongirlindariaworld says:

        The ‘doohickeys’ have me all confused too…I’ve been practicing reckless clicking. If I don’t know what it is, or what it does, I click it. So far, so good.

        • That’s my philosophy, too. I used to think that if I clicked on the wrong thing, I would crash the Internet, but I’m pretty sure, now, that such a thing can’t happen. (I need emoticons so I can easily express that I am being sarcastic!)

          • shannongirlindariaworld says:

            Just use the old faithful, :-/ …that might convey your emoticons.

            I generally live via that principle. If I don’t know what I’m doing, click a button. Stuff doesn’t always blow up at the press of a button…only in very rare situations.

  9. I’m finding it very hard too, but I saw your artsy pictures before I clicked to comment but dissapeared when I clicked on it :O

    So weird, but at least we’re moving with a lot of amazing people πŸ™‚
