I know that’s what you’re thinking! My answer is, that’s what I do! When I feel it’s time to move on, I go with it! I stumbled upon this blog provider completely by accident. Really! I was searching for a photo of a funeral procession to use as a prop for my daughter’s school musical, “Oliver”, when I was sidetracked by a random site created in WordPress.
So I started researching the top blog providers and found that this one is climbing in ranks very fast (about 240% more hits per month than last year). Only Blogger.com is bigger right now. My other site, Multiply.com, isn’t even in the top ten anymore. WordPress is not as user friendly, but it has so many more options and gives you more control if you know your way around a little HTML and CSS with a little knowledge of RSS Feeds as well.
Always up for a challenge, I think this will inspire me to learn more about those things than the little I already know. This could shape up to be quite the site!
The title is taken from a Beatles song (the one you’ll probably hear first when you get here, unless I have since changed my song list). I always thought it was a peculiar song. The whole part of that line is …I’m fixing a hole where the rain gets in and keeps my mind from wandering where it will go… My mind does tend to wander! What better way to start off a new blog that started with my mind wandering?
So bookmark the site now because I haven’t learned yet if you can receive notice via e-mail when I post new blogs, pages, photos, etc. Actually, photos are going to be added to my new flikr account, which you can access by clicking the link on the side. This is another thing I’m just starting to build. I signed up a long time ago and forgot I even had an account already. I never got around to uploading photos even! Now my mind can wander all over the dang place!
Don’t throw eggs or tomatoes! I don’t mean to be difficult. It’ll be fine! I promise!
Oh! The name “zachner” in the web address came from my maiden name and my married name smashed together. I wanted something fairly short and easy to remember, but I was tired of the lame “simplysheila”. A little strange? Sure! But you’ll get used to it!
