When I woke this morning I was trying to write a poem. I kept negating my attempts because I didn’t want to discourage anyone with my unhappiness. I thought about the blogging enterprise and how I’ve pretty much been shielding readers from my pain part. I’ve been less than real to protect others from me!??? (Not great unhappiness, just griping.)

So, I thought about starting a brand new blog, maybe called TALKING TO MYSELF. I thought maybe I could alter one of my pages, instead. I set about looking to see what would be the best page. I had forgotten I have one called DIARY, and read it and liked it. I wouldn’t have to change anything, just start using it. The thing is, with pages new entries are at the bottom, and one has to go past earlier stuff to get there, unless one takes the time to change that each time. I think I’d be willing to do that to avoid the non-understood charges associated with a blog.

Then I visited the page where I gave away my best book on a PDF, to see if anyone had read or copied it. Since I’d put in no counter, I only saw that Sound Eagle had “liked” it. Sound Eagle was the only “Like” for the Diary page, too. And I (ahem) likew it and had forgotten the good stuff. My best page is the fun page [relaxation? Pleasure?] I forget what it’s called. I haven’t got the hang of how to post on a page and let folks know. Anyone else solved this problem? I think I need a wet nurse technician. I seem to have been halted in posting images by WP. Wish I could return to wiping out G Guggenheim (that’s not the right name) forever and not let it get into the act at all! Often I don’t see the words “Classic editor.”

Something’s in my WP “cart” and I’m afraid to find out what. I don’t understand what costts and what doesn’t. I thought once I had a computer and name for my blog I was pretty much paid up. It seems some of the offerings on my computer come with price tags. I’ll bite the bullet and find out what’s unpaid in my cart…maybe tonight…Maybe that’s why I can’t post images any more….Have an interesting day watching tv! Goodness. I watched it yesterday on my computer/PBS live. Goodness…

  • I tried to comment, but we must be related. It disappeared when I tried to italicize Lupin, a Netflix miniseries I mentioned while saying that I am trying to decide to give up my subscription to Dish. The lesser subscription they talked me into when I tried to cancel the expensive one my now-ex husband paid for leaves gaps of about 10 seconds every minute or two, which makes it impossible to follow an intricate plot. Grrrr. Anyway, it hadn’t occurred to me to watch PBS live, which may make it possible for me to sever the Dish cord completely. The only thing I can’t bear to part with is Jeopardy. Anybody know how to watch it live online? Lupin is lots more fun without the gaps.
