Quick Shot Post

I’m sitting down to write this – just to try to remember how to write a blog post. It’s been that long. There are numerous reasons for my delinquency, but one of the big ones has to be the fact that I’m not happy with the “theme” that I’m using. Several times I’ve tried to find something new that I like, but thus far I’ve been unsuccessful. I think I need to just try a few on for size, so watch for some new looks. Don’t expect much for content until I find something that I love. Promises, promises, promises.

Adding photos is also a bit more tedious since I moved my photo library to an external drive. Unfortunately my computer and my external hard drive aren’t always in the same room – a problem I need to work out.

Well, the good news is that I still remember how to type. That’s got to be worth something, right? Now to test my ability to add photos… of course, the only ones I have at hand on my computer of photos of Kush the cat.

Great – I can’t remember how to add a photo to the heading on this theme. Can’t see/remember where to add categories or tags. I definitely have some work ahead. Stay tuned as I try to get back into the wonderful world of blogging!

Sometimes I am a slow learner. Not always, but sometimes. I have been learning how to use WordPress since I started blogging last May. One of the reasons I started the blog was so that I could learn how to do it. While searching the internet, I found numerous blogs that are great to read – entertaining or educational or humorous or all of the above. I figured it would be fun to give it a whirl.

First I had to think of something to write about – it started out slowly and rather sporadically. Almost immediately I realized that I had to add some photos to add interest, besides I love taking pictures and what better way to share them? (Never quite got the hang of online photo galleries, except for .Mac gallery, which shuts down in June.) So – I read and played and figured out inserting photos. The method I use to insert photos is slow and tedious, but that just means there’s room for improvement, right? This is me taking a break in a supported shoulder stand. I’m not sure which yoga pose the cat is doing.

I also decided I should try to post on some sort of schedule. This would give me a regular deadline (and who doesn’t work better with a good deadline?). Twice a week. That seemed

2011 in review

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.
