Flashback to maybe three months ago.
I was sitting in front of my laptop thinking of how I might move forward with the whole blogging business. I was having trouble with my layouts and decided that perhaps I ought not to be too dependent on ready-made blogging sites (such as the one I’m using now), that I ought to plunge in and face the challenges and therefore reap the glorious benefits of working with HTML.
Of course nothing quells such ambition as a healthy dose of reality.
This is not to say I gave up right away. In fact, at one point, I had so many tabs for all the sites I had to go to for tutorials. It was almost like chemistry class. Everything flew over my head. Well, a better description might be that line from Across the Universe that goes: “words meander like a restless wind inside a letter box . . .” except in my case, they weren’t meandering. More like whooshing and my head felt like an empty, echoing cave, I’d say.
Now although there exists a formidable stubborn streak in my family, I’ve found that being middle-aged has allowed me to bend a little and to step up and admit that HTML is a bit too much for me. Happily, when I returned to my blog home base, I discovered that updates had been made, new themes were available, and I made peace with its layout limitations.
