Dangerous thing, this WordCamp Phoenix that took place over the weekend at the Chandler Center of the Arts.
Not to get too geeky for the vast majority for one-third of my readers – my mother – but there seems to be far more to WordPress, the software behind the beauty you see here and on my other websites – than I ever imagined. And some of the things that have come along of late replace things I’d done half-assed before in an effort to make everything look exactly the way I wanted.
There were some serious smarts in the rooms yesterday, even if most of them came from people who seemed to this 41-year-old’s eye and ear to be 14 years old and speaking in tongues.
And all of this is a long way of explaining that changes are afoot today and I’m begging patience as the construction goes. My good friend Dave Smith, he of the Real Estate Blog Lab, recommended I set up a test site for any changes rather than going live but, just like Bill O’Reilly once bellowed, “WE’LL DO IT LIVE!”
(If you YouTube that one, don’t do it at work, by the way.)
Of course, substance always matter more than appearance in areas extending far beyond the blog but when the appearance leads to some increase capability and ease of use on your end, it’s worth the headaches that will follow in the coming hours.
Stay tuned, Mom.
