It’s official…In An Irish Home exists. Yippee!! I’m probably not supposed to “seem” this excited but the truth of it is I am completely and honestly “tickled pink”. A very thoughtful friend said she found In An Irish Home yesterday around 3.00pm. She tried to leave a comment (God bless her – my first comment!) but, alas, it did not appear. She will try again tonight and you can be sure I’ll be checking tomorrow morning to see if she was successful. Checking and writing your own blog is addictive…once you get the darned thing going.
Speaking of which, a big THANK YOU goes to the WordPress.com Forums Support site. When I was worried that somehow I’d made a hames (Irish for “making a mess”) of setting up this blog, I was happy to learn from the WordPress experts that it can take days or weeks before Google finds a new blog. (Wish WordPress had mentioned that in the “Getting Started” section of their website.) It wasn’t vanity that made me anxious these past two weeks. If I’d known from the beginning that when you post a blog it doesn’t instantly appear, I’d have been more patient.
A big THANK YOU also goes to Sams Teach Yourself WordPress 3 in 10 Minutes. It’s a helpful resource for someone who hasn’t a clue what they’re doing (someone like me). I recommend it to anyone who feels the need to push out into the world wide web and leave their thoughts in a WordPress blog.
So, now that In An Irish Home really exists, I suppose it’s time to get writing/blogging (which is it?). Thankfully there’s always something happening around here. Drop me a comment when you have a moment. I’d love to hear from you!
