Although I’ve been a member of WordPress for several years, it’s only now that I’m learning how it all works. I have to say that it’s not an easy site to navigate but at the same time it is a really excellent site with MANY features. And of course my age is against me for learning all these things. I’ve never ever tried to take a picture with my mobile phone and totally given up on my Smart Phone. One day I’m gonna find out what an app is. I hate changes and updates and think that in so many ways life was so much better before this rush of technology hit us. I did master that fantastic blogging/social site called Multiply and I’m losing hope that it will ever come back.
After almost losing my mind trying to wade through the hundreds of facebook and WordPress notifications for years, I’ve finally done something about it and now I can easily manage my daily notifications once more.
The best thing I’ve learned about this week is how to manage my notifications here in WordPress. I’ve stopped getting them and instead I use a magic button in the top right hand corner of my site. I’ve found all sorts of great things there. I’ve found out how I can view WordPress members’ homepages and how to contact them. I’ve found out which comments I must read and who has liked my posts. Now after spending several hours there this morning, I am totally up to date. Thank you Australian for changing my WordPress life for me. Now I will be able to make comments again without any fear of being overwhelmed by notifications.
The next thing I want to do is to change the way my site looks. I hate the way it is now and I only got it by accident. I got stumped in the process and couldn’t get my original theme back again. I might come begging for help soon, Pooja.
Last night I got hit like a ton of hot bricks by news of somebody’s death. Hearing about anybody’s death always changes my mood for hours and yesterday was no exception. I couldn’t sleep for hours because of thinking that this person was just not ready to die. I am still thinking and thinking about this awful news.
Life is generally excellent these days. I look forward to getting up each and every morning. It will be much better when all the immigration matters have been cleared and I can start planning and organising things.
