Themes to Me Thomebody Needth Kicking Out of Her Comfort Thone

“Your problem is,” said my website angel consultant the other day, “your website theme doesn’t include a menu with social media buttons. You need a new theme.”

That’s what came out of her mouth, anyway. This is what I heard:

“Return ye to that fearsome Land of Tech where live every vile Insecurity and Fear of Failure your puny writer mind can devise!!!”

Yep. I have to go back to  Wordpress Central, whose user-friendly greeting might as well say, “Abandon hope, all ye who enter here.”

So…this should be interesting. I’m gonna take a few days off to welcome Son One home from his year abroad and celebrate a couple of late holidays with the whole fam. (Merry Thanksmas, everyone!) Then I will pull on the big-girl panties and try. To. Update. My. Blog. All by my ownself.

You should know by next week how that went. Wish me luck, people! Oh, and send me recommendations for great, easy-to-read WordPress themes if you have any.

See you later! And Merry Thanksmas.

  1. Break a leg…isn’t that what they say to circus performers before they enter the Big Top. As for me, what I say is Good Luck. Cross your fingers. Take a DEEEP breath and dive in. And remember, if it gets toooo sucky wucky, Susan LOVES techno-challenges!!

  2. Don’t worry, it’s easy! If you choose a free theme, all you have to do is click. Your content will transfer automatically. I just updated my site with the newest version of a paid theme. I had to DELETE my existing theme, then upload and launch the new one. TERROR. It worked great though – a little fiddling, but the whole thing was done in less than an hour.
