2018, and I was ready for a new challenge. After a few years of producing my very simplistic blog, I decided that the tine had come for me to branch out to more personal statement. I assumed that it would be easy, but I was wrong, very wrong.
The blog I offered before was simple, because of the limited time I had to give, and the formula involved bringing together a collection of photos with a few paragraphs. But now, armed with a new site http://www.kaowinston.net , and delving into its construction, I found myself, shock horror, totally out of my depth. What the hell is this thing called a widget?
After going round in circles for a couple days, I sent an SOS to WordPress.com Support, and that has somewhat returned me to sanity. To be truthful, my limited knowledge of web building, and my total ignorance of WordPress.com practices, had played a major part in my downfall. The WordPress support response also made me realize that there were lots of information available out there, none of which I had come across before. My advice to any one stating blogging for the first time, it would be a better idea to do some homework first, or even subscribe to some of the courses – I was absolutely surprised to find that these courses existed.
One of my pleasant surprises happened when I decided that I should delete the videos approach from my navigation menu as it belongs to the premium accounts, and then at the very last minute suddenly realised that I can embed YouTube links in same, without any problems. That was certainly a joyful moment for me. I am still not out of the woods, as yet; but things are definitely improving, even though I still feel I have a long way to go. I am prepared to face the challenges that lie ahead to make the site much more useful, and definitely better.
