2013, cyd, new

The wait is almost over!

I just got word from the Hacker King. Wordpress has been installed on fabulousdisaster.com. You won't see any changes immediately. I have a theme and three plug-ins to install and basic rules to learn. I have four Wordpress books open right now, 2 PDFs, one in Ice Cream Ebook reader and one on the Kindle, and am bouncing back and forth between them.

This is so exciting!

I figured out an alpha-numeric inventory code for my products today and wrote it all out in long hand. I looked at business software that is meant to take care of receipts and inventory and invoices and it all seemed like a lot of thinly veiled maths.

But . . . Wordpress! Now I can start working on the graphics to go into the theme. You know how I did the design last year with the bi-pride colors? I actually found a free theme with multi-page support in those colors. Wow, I have to really start thinking about how I am going to divide up the site now. Frell. That's a lot of writing. But I have to do it long hand. I don't know why.

Okay, back to reading, I'd like to get the theme and the plug-ins in place tonight and right now I'm having issues logging in. More reading!
