Or is it day one still? I think I’m just over 24 hours in at this point so it has to be day two. Plus I slept at least four or five hours. But other than that it’s been blog blog blog. I guess it’s not obvious at first glance, but this was hard! I read the posts of the computer guys all saying how simple it is, “so simple” they say. Hmmph! That’s what I say about a truckload of concrete and lumber that’s supposed to be a house, so I guess it’s all relative, but man..what in the world!? HTML, RSS, PHP….huh?
I probably should have gone for one of the off-the-shelf blog deals like most folks have. It would have been easy in comparison, but noooo I wanted to make sure this was done right. Of course I have no idea what right is. I just go with what I read from those men, women, and children who say that html is as simple as the the ABC’s. A bunch of them say WordPress is the way to go. So away I went.
It could have been worse. In 20 odd hours time I have been able to do some stuff. So look around and check it out. Don’t worry, it won’t take long.
So, what is the point of this blog? I’ve read that I should know that. Can’t go rushing off all half-cocked without a plan. Me? Nawww. So, the point. Don’t know. I think it has something to do with the fact that we (Kim and I…she’s the pretty one in the pictures) have dreams of fulfilling a bit more of the “wherever” part of the Forever Wherever toast and we think that the Internet might be a step in the right direction toward wherever. She’s off to a great start with her Etsy shop Flashy Fish! Kim makes a huge assortment of beautiful hair accessories for the young and young at heart! She has over 200 items for sale and in just a few months she’s really started to develop a following. One of the reasons we decided to start this blog was to help increase her work’s exposure. My personal favorite is the Pink Truck. I may be partial because it’s the only one of the 200+ designs that I suggested and one of the few that hasn’t yet sold at least one! So somebody please buy the Pink Truck…it’s cool! Some guy out there must have a budding little cowgirl this would be perfect for.
And now I know that I have a whole lot to learn about how to put a picture in a post… and how to get a time stamp on the post, and how to put a link to our email addresses, and how to write things that will actually interest people. That’s going to be the fun part. But I think it can be done!
AJ, our oldest son (14) is selling handmade fly-fishing flies on Etsy too. For now they are at Kim’s Flashy Fish Shop, but he’s getting ready to open his own. I’ll link it up when he does.
We’ve got a few things up our sleeves and we’ll be unveiling as we go. For now I think I just need to keep on learning how to make the whole thing work like it’s supposed to. Come back soon! Please.
