I said I failed miserably at making a wordpress blog, but...
It was a lie!
I did not fail, and I am now extremely proud with the result, and no longer find wordpress daunting (Yes, daunting. I know...)
I made a photography blog, here. The posts start on July 01 (yes, I back-posted them), and are scheduled to post one a day right up through September 26. Talk about a whole day's work (I had to "watermark" them too)!
Anyway, I have no plans to change this blog to wordpress, I was just trying it out. But I like it, so I now have a link to my photography blog on my sidebar. Yay!
