Blowing Up Blogs
Don’t you hate when things just don’t work right?
Or at least not as advertised, eh?
I had that happen right here at CREEations. This past week I finally upgraded to the latest version of WordPress. Only it didn’t work quite as planned.
Got a lovely error message when I tried to access the control panel and I was completely locked out. No fun.
I didn’t have a chance to mess with it until tonight.
Then wouldn’t you know there were, um, complications reverting back to the previous version so that I could try the upgrade again. What I thought would take an hour or so took more than 4 just to get back to the place I was earlier in the week.
I’ll try the whole update thing again. Later.
On the off chance that you commented here in the last few days, I’m afraid your comment has been deleted when I reverted back to the previous working version. Sorry about that.
We’ll try to get it right next time.
For now I’m going to catch some shut eye. It’s been a long week.
A Time for Everything
Most of you who are 40-ish and up, or maybe even if you are a child of a Baby Boomer and heard their 8-tracks growing up, have probably heard the song by the Byrds â€œTurn! Turn! Turn!â€.
But did you know they took their lyrics straight out of the Bible?
See for yourself what Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 has to say:
There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven–
A time to give birth and a time to die;
A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.
A time to kill and a time to heal;
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to weep and a time to laugh;A time to mourn and a time to dance. A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.
A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
A time to be silent and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate;
A time for war and a time for peace.
I guess my version today would be there is a time for using the free Blogger service and a time to move up and pay for your own blog.
Last night I stayed up late and got a hosting account set up with A Small Orange. For some reason I had the urge to keep my site in state and everything Iâ€™ve been able to find out about these guys says their customer service is second to none.
That means Iâ€™ll be moving the blog over to a new domain this weekend, and learning a new blogging platform with WordPress with all the challenges that entails.
Oh, and did I mention that Iâ€™m first on call this weekend at work? So itâ€™s going to be Sleep Deprivation City for me, baby!
All I can say is Bring it ON!
Whereâ€™s my coffee?
