Thumbing Through The Tools

I’ve been posting here on WordPress now for a little over a month, and it seems much longer than that.  OH OH.  Time out.  Rusty is here on my desk and is curling up and speaking to me.  OMG.  I’m melting!


                                            You could just melt-look at that face.You could just melt!

It’s not easy to ignore him.  Anyone with a lovable cat (yes, they can be SOOOO affectionate!), will know exactly what I’m talking about.

To get back to my blog….. as I was saying…… Blogging here on WordPress is quite an experience for anyone, and I am not excepted here.  It’s been a learning experience, for sure.

I decided to look around to see what is available, without trying to search out something in particular, like when I wanted to change my background, and change my blog address.

I found something new today:  an archive of comments!; and my blog statistics!  I answered some comments on the archive; others, I was not able to, because they were low on my screen and, when I wanted to hit a “reply” button, it was inaccessible.  There wasn’t any scroll I could use.  If anyone can give me some direction regarding these, I’d be forever in your debt (not really, but you get my drift!)

Change Is Good For The Soul – Or Is It?

If you’re reading this blog and any of my others, and you’ve been on my site before, you will notice a difference in the background.

There is more than one thing (text, images, photos, videos) to concentrate on when posting a blog.  I know, it’s the message that’s most important, but I have chosen to change my background, and yet still try to keep within certain color and design parameters that I have given myself today.  I really wasn’t happy with the background that was there yesterday – I felt it was temporary – a “fix” from the solid white background that I had when I messed up early on.

I tried this one: 


but didn’t like it.


Didn’t like this one, either.

I liked the designs above, and some others but, when tiled, they looked awful.  I’ve been trying to keep similar colors that were in the original theme, “Matala.”

In order to spread the design across the whole background, it has to be “tiled.”  So, I had to find one that “tiled” nicely.  I am partial to paisley – always liked that design.

Actually, I had fun with this – choosing another design.  This is my blog, and I need to be pleased and happy with how it appears – for me, not necessarily for all who may view it.  If I get tired of this design, or decide it’s time to search for another background, it’s a simple (wasn’t at first) thing to change.

This is my happiness moment for today.  A simple thing, but hey!
