Once upon a time, back when I was a beginning blogger, I knew how to set up a new blog. I added widgets and images and “about” and “contact” pages effortlessly (well, maybe not EFFORTLESSLY) but that was not the case today.
Today I decided that I have spent too much time scrolling through social media and not enough time interacting with my fellow writers.
Today I decided that I have spent too much time listening to the lies the EIC tells me and not enough time twisting suburbia.
Today I managed to create a copy of myself.
Well, not literally…(I could use another self or three, but the copy of the copy of the copy gets pretty blurry)
But in the process of building a new site, I managed to lose my version of suburbia (evidently wordpress.com no longer supports Coraline and I’m not a huge fan of Colinear (“our update to the older Coraline”) – so….
Today I changed the theme of my blog.
I also spent HOURS trying to create the new site…and found that I cannot, no matter how hard I try, figure out how to add the sharing buttons on my post or remove “twistingsuburbia” as the author of my posts.
In short, Today I tried something new – and I failed.
But it’s okay – because today I wrote (two posts – one to each blog!) and, as Scarlett said, tomorrow is another day.
It’s also okay because today I remembered what A.P.J. Abdul Kalam said about failing.
P.S. you can check out my new blog here
P.P.S after spending hours trying to add social media sharing buttons, they magically appeared…guess they took pity on me 😉
