I am so excited! I’m like a kid at Christmas. It took me a long time to come around, but now I’m officially on WordPress. It was tough to teach this old dog new tricks. I thought if Blogger was good enough for Paul and Silas, it had to be good enough for me.
There’s a lot of new things I’m excited about. I love the tabs at the top of the page that take you straight to my favorite categories like Church, Dads, Honduras, Marriage, Men, Morgan Family and Top Ten Lists. I also like the fact that my blogroll is not included as a tab in the top left corner of every page. John Dobbs has got to be excited about this because he won’t have to do the “word verification” that Blogger always required. There are so many other things I’ll be tweaking over the next few days t00.
One of the main things I am excited about is the ability to reply to your comments after you leave me a comment. Under the blogger format, I’d just have to leave random comments down the page and hope you noticed them. If you leave a comment, and I hope you will, the first time it will have to be approved by WordPress, but never again after that.
Although, I like the “About Me” tab at the top of the page, it took me forever to come up with something to put there. And, a big thanks to my friend Ericka Moore for doing the picture for that page.
To celebrate the opening of my new blog I’m having a give away. My friend Deb suggested me giving Connor away, but as much as that kid eats, that wouldn’t be a prize but more of a liability. So I think a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card will be a great thing to give away. All you have to do is leave me a comment, and in the next couple of days I’ll pick a number at random and give it away. And again, a big thanks to my friend Peter Pollock for designing my blog.
PS – Oh by the way, did you see the really cool Twitter and Facebook buttons on the far right hand side of the screen? That is SO cool. Thanks for stopping by my new blog.
