Html, schmahtml…I’m on vacation! As bloggers go, I write my stuff mostly for friends and family…and for myself to capture memories over time. That said, I know there are other readers, as I see some of the stats that are provided by Google Blogger. No worries over privacy dear readers, as any stat info is anonymous…all I see is a count and country. It’s interesting to me to see there are site visitors from Qatar or Ukraine….or comments from a reader in Alaska. Welcome everyone!
Also, as bloggers go, my use of blogging tools is woefully behind the curve. I complain about Blogger hosting, but haven’t even switched to their newer themes. I wanted a major upgrade for my second bluwaterlife anniversary coming up and have been inspired by other beautiful web pages. Bluwaterguy (our tireless supporter and technical advisor) has been researching different hosting, publishing and formatting options for me….and even he says it is confusing! I have decided HTML stands for “h…too much learning”, as I study up on things I never wanted to know. As Bluwaterguy researches and emails the support elves at Google, WordPress and DIYThemes, I am looking at themes and feature comparisons (sticky posts, anyone?)…while we are on vacation. Somehow I hoped this would be easier. I really want to know about the ability to control typography, layout and color palette. I do not want to learn HTML!
We will eventually get this figured out, and have a new look that I can expand to other content for sharing. Stay tuned and bear with me if we goof up…and pardon the current out-of-date look while we work on renovation. Please stay tuned 🙂
In the meantime, we are off for our tradition of sunset drinks in the beach pavilion at the end of the street. Tonight it is a pitcher of margaritas….cheers to the future while enjoying the now!
