Out with the old, in with the new

*Looks at date of previous post* So, yeah. Almost eight years since my last post. Oops. Anyway, the title for this entry is regarding my decision to move away from WP. I’m rather tired of having to constantly make sure everything is updated practically every day, especially since I don’t update very often (obvious train, […]

A new blog for me

Yeah, just what I need – one more place to have to keep up with. LOL This one is intended for my side biz, for my jewelry.  Actually I already have a link to it here, except it used to be my e-commerce site.  I switched things around over the weekend, moved the e-commerce pages […]

Living in the desert

We see these all over the place where I live. Short, tall, skinny, wide, no arms, dozens of arms… Did you know it is illegal do do any damage to these plants, even if you own one? You cannot just go out and dig one up out of the desert and plant it in your […]

Reconstruction complete

Whew.  That seemed to go off with only a minor hitch, which was easily corrected.  You probably may not notice much of a change from your perspective, but that is the way it should be.  All of the changes happened “behind the scenes”, so what I see when I work in the admin panel of […]

Beware, construction ahead

I am going to attempt to upgrade to WP 2.7 shortly. I hope all goes well… If not, I hope I can get things back to normal without a lot of headache. So if you visit this site and see a huge mess of HTML or nothing at all, well… Come back in a few […]

WordPress 2.7 is available – yay!

I’m giddy, but I can’t install it until I get home!!  Agh! Unfortunately I did not install it using my host’s autoinstaller, I installed it manually myself, so I have to download everything and unzip and back up stuff, blah blah, and then upload it to my host before I can try it out.  I’d […]

I think I’ll call it done

Whew.  That was a lot of hard work.  There are still some minor tweaks I need to add, and I need to fix my adsense widget, but I think this is good. I decided to make the links in the sidebar pink so they’ll stand out a bit more and they kind of go with […]

Pardon my mess

I am implementing a new template that I made, please bear with me while I make some more tweaks to get it looking better… I only had one sidebar before and now there are two so I need to move things around, plus I need to get a smaller EC widget as the one I […]

HTML Tip – making URLs in comments

I’ve noticed that some commenters have been leaving multiple links in their comments, and that is fine, except I am seeing that they are not links, which is not going to help you get back links. I don’t know if something is happening with my comment script (please let me know if this is the […]

Making extra money

I will admit it – we are credit card junkies, although we have gotten better about how many cards we carry balances on.  But at the same time, I always find myself trying to figure out ways to make a little extra money on the side so we can start paying down those vicious balances […]
