2013, cyd, new

Yes, now the cable goes out.

okay, YAY, I've started working on the new site. I'm getting used to the user interface. I went nuts in the plugin section and downloaded all manner of stuff. I can install a chat thing on my site! I'm definitely going to do that soon. ionracas was right, SO MANY PLUGINS! It's like retail therapy, but FREE!

Right now I'm having a problem getting the theme's configuration page to load, but I'm pretty sure that is a temporary thing, since I was on it fine this morning.

I think, I don't know yet, but I think, that I am going to move my daily journal entries over there. I'm downloading my journal here, month by tedious month, to archive. But I think I want to centralize as much of my online activity as I can onto fabulousdisaster.com. I will be able to do just about anything I want to there, now. And I want to take full advantage and make it a fully interactive website. Something it has never been. I want that to be my main presence. Right now, that is here. But once I have portfolios and videos and mp3s set up with the store and all the bells and whistles, I think I want my journal there, too. I don't know how many of you will stay with me, I'm really afraid of losing the core group here, which is the ONLY reason I am at all reluctant. But, realistically, if you want to follow, you will follow. I have to trust that and do what is best for me right now.

I've had that URL for 14 years now, and it is far past time I did something fabulously disastrous with it. I can start my own social media site on my domain now, if i want to. I don't know that I want to, but it's nice to have the option.

This is all in the future. My top priority is to get the skeleton of the site up, start posting on it, and get the store up and running in time for holiday shopping. Every plug-in I'm downloading has it's own SEO feature, so I can at least have a fighting chance of getting in the search engines in a reasonable time.

Okay, enough of a break. Back to work. Time to restart the computer and start all over again. Hopefully this posts.
