Where did Dimples and Daydreams go?

With anything new there is a learning curve.  This new Word Press site is no exception.  While I was a Technical Recruiter for many years, clearly true IT (information technology) is not in my blood.  Thanks for your patience while I post wonky pictures, have no means of receiving comments and basically scratch my head trying to learn this new blogging tool.

In the last post I said I’d let you know what’s been going on behind the scenes with this ol’ blog. Basically, I read an e-book which has gotten my thinking of ways to improve this site.  And the wheels have continued to turn.  Let’s face it, there’s lots of room for improvement.

The premise of the blog remains the same- an electronic scrapbook of my children for me (and them) to have one day. The name, has changed but that’s about it.  Yes, I do like routines (Mr. Robinson often points this out) and dislike change but I also realize that maybe I should try to kick it up a notch since there seems to be a decent number of visitors each day.

One can only assume you get a good laugh at my typos, randomness, or take comfort in the fact that I really don’t have my sh*t together.  All are valid.

Whatever the reason, I’m glad you here.

Here’s some of the {upcoming} changes and enhancements I’m working towards:

  • One of my new goals is to create an editorial calendar which means… planning ahead.  Type A’s love creating lists so this part is easy.  Sitting down to write about my pre-planned post is not.  I don’t want to write about some new recipe when all I can think about is my 10 going on 16 year old.  Yes, I have already wandered off my well-laid plans. Such is life.
  • For the most part, this site looks the same.  For now, there is no way subscribe to new posts or leave comments (that’s okay, y’all are quite blog readers like me. Crickets.)  For now, you’ll need to actually type in the URL to get here (I think).
  • I’ve also activated a twitter account-don’t ask. Just what we all need in our life- more social media. Can’t say I am a fan of twitter but I’m chirping and tweeting with the best of them.
  • I’ve created a group board on my Pinterest board called ‘I Done pinned that pin! which has not only completed Pinterest projects, but also tells us if they were easy, ugly, harder than it looks, crap, etc.  If you want to join just comment on one of the pins.  The more the merrier.

I’m trying to watch tutorials on You Tube and research the Net for making the tweaks I want.  It’ll get there.  All this to say, I am behind on my photos.

So dim the lights, will ya?

Apparently, these are the only photos I snapped from our quick trip to Universal Studios. The hotel room and pool. What more do you want out of life then a hotel room and a pool?

For now it’s back to Blogging 101 while I try to learn as I go without missing a beat.  How’s that for a metaphor for life?

Happy Thursday.
