I crashed WordPress !!!

Captain's bridgeOn the 21st July 2012 I took the plunge. I decided to construct a website. My amigos on a forum suggested two options and the one I chose was WordPress. Not knowing what I was letting myself in for… into WordPress I dived. Fumbling around my themes and widgets I waded through the brambles of my ignorance in site construction. I chose a theme but it looked wrong to me, so out came my credit card and loads of money later I almost had it right. But not quite. My credit card took a hammering. So, a dot com later I found a “Dashboard”. OMG….what !!!! I wanted the blog to look like a normal website but at the same time fill an area with my ramblings. Oh, I am a fuss pot !!

Not eating properly or stroking my cats; I clicked, scrolled and tut-tutted for hours. Then IT happened…….Sunday night the 22nd of July…..I clicked and crashed WordPress. I take full responsibility. Smack my wrist !! Couldn’t do anything worthwhile for hours. Then I saw sense and peeped into the forums where dozens of members were banging at the closed doors of the WordPress office all shouting, “Fix me, we are getting withdrawal symptoms “. But, the nightwatchman was asleep and no-one was home. I tiptoed out of the forum and went to bed.

Monday the 23rd of July 2012 I warily switched on my laptop, poked my nose around the forum door and people were talking about committing suicide. Suddenly, at lunchtime, shouts of, ” THEY’VE FIXED IT !!! ” resounded throughout the Halls of the Internet.2nd in Command of engineering dashboards

Not shaven or showered for days, I was again drawn under the spell of the “Dashboard”; where I clicked, scrolled and tut-tutted for hours. Eventually Bluefish Way was born.

I still don’t know my tabs from my tags. It’s all magic to me !!  Ralph xx

  3. Ralph it took me one month to go through what you did in a couple of days. I could not chose a theme…I was going berserk so I settled for a free theme and I’m still with it. I’m still clicking, scrolling and tut-tuttering. I have a long way to go. Have a pleasant weekend! The Bottoms Up Begins….

    • Hi Liz 😀

      I tried two or three free themes initially, but they were not enough for me, so I have a paid for theme and a dot com now which I’m really happy with. So I will stick with it. Thanks for all the Likes. Bottoms up !! 😉

      And you my friend. Have a lovely weekend. Ralph xox 😀
