i hear it a lot.
the voices inside my head tell me.
the television, too — when i’m watching hoarders.
but mostly, it’s my computer who lets me know.
i’m obsessed with my website. maybe you’ve seen it — http://www.marthalouisehunter.com
maybe that was a shameless plug, but my fingers just type that uncontrollably. my dog, bitsey thinks i’m weird at night when i start typing it on her head in my sleep.
maybe you don’t realize it, but all of this social media stuff is a pain in the ass.
yes, i said it, & you can even tattle on me for cursing, because at this point, i really don’t care.
this site of mine — jeez louise, martha louise, — it’s so time-consuming, you wouldn’t believe it. well, maybe you would, but here’s the thing that’s really the worst. have you ever noticed when you pull up a website on your phone, it’s an adorable little mini-version of the one on your computer?
did you think it shrinks down like that like magic?
there’s not a little genie in your phone. it’s me.
it takes hours upon hours to get it right. not only do things move around all over the place, sometimes you lose them altogether. you should’ve seen me searching for the stupid amazon icon earlier. poor little thing was hiding underneath the little twitter bird.
this one time, i changed one teensy-weensie thing & my face looked like gertrude stein.
so, next time you look at something online, give a big old “you’re AWESOME” to the little computer geek who made it all happen.
omg, i’m ocd… look @ the time. seriously? it’s 3:25 a.m.
i know my posts routinely have typos, but this time, get over it.
haha! why THANK YOU!
no, becca — YOU’RE AWESOME
I feel your pain- WordPress pain! I lost countless hours of sleep and some of my sanity with WordPress. I implore you to save yourself the future headaches, cursing fits, punches in the air…oh wait, that was me with WP!-and switch to Squarespace. You won’t have to do any coding, plug-ins, widgets, etc. JUST WRITING! I kick myself in the derrière for not switching sooner! Sending Squarespace And blogging Love!
hey – wordpress isn’t the problem! (YET… heh-heh) it’s my wix site, http://www.marthalouisehunter.com
drives me INSANE
I guess you can tell how I feel about WordPress. The problems you mentioned sounded way too similar to mine so I thought it was WP related. Hope everything gets sorted out for you!!
