Deja Vu All Over Again

Jeez, I’ve had such crappy luck with my blogging software over the past few years. Been trying to use the integrated Rapidweaver solution to do both the website and blog. And I realize the previous sentence will only make sense to extraordinarily geeky Macheads.

Let’s just say, I’ve tried a lot of things and it never quite works the way I hope. So, I’m going to try something totally different, and just blog on Blogger and import it to the website. Thought about doing this plenty of times. Took me just about an hour tonight to set up. So, with any luck, the whole thing should be reworked in a week or two….working a little at a time.

I mean, I hadn’t blogged in six weeks before tonight….and that’s all about just being frustrated with how slow and cumbersome it was.

Let’s hope this will be better. More later….EF

  1. I am also having trouble with the website, making updates. And I have no idea why. But, needing to write this at least lets me test out the comments feature here…seems to work….
