It’s been about two weeks since I started this project and little has progressed. I’m trying to console myself with the “I’m a busy mom, ferrying the kids around to various summer camps and friends’ houses and doing the usual jobs of cooking, cleaning, gardening, entertaining, blah, blah, blah” line but it’s not really working. Truth is, I thought setting up a blog would be easier and more glamorous…something similar to how it was in the movie Julie & Julia (you know, sitting at a cozy table, handsome husband in the background, typing breezily and then, with the touch of a button, it’s all done).
The fact is you have to know what you’re doing and be patient. From reading the book Teach Yourself WordPress 3 in 10 Minutes (are they joking?!) and reviewing the forums on WordPress I have learned you can’t expect to instantly show up on the world wide web just because you create an account and write your first blog. The WordPress forum says it can take anywhere from six hours to several weeks AND you need to have more than one entry.
Have patience and write more than one entry…hhhmmm…I can do both. Have you got the patience to stay with me?
