Blogging Fundamentals: Day 2

This post is part of the blogging fundamentals tutorial offered by WordPress. If you are a regular follower of my blog, you are probably not interested in this path. I will try to remember to title all related posts with Blogging Fundamentals so you can recognize and skip them.

For Day 2 of the Blogging Fundamentals tutorial, I am instructed to check out and change my blog title and byline. I worked really hard on that a while back ago, and think I will stick with things the way they are. As soon as Microsoft has stopped downloading all my updates and blocking my internet links between Outlook and browsers, I’ll click on the link just to review any changes that have been made to the WordPress system. I know there have been quite a few that simplify blogging; I just haven’t checked out what has changed.

Did I tell you that I was without adequate internet service for over two months? No, it had nothing to do with bill payment. We moved, and it takes up to three months (I think more like four or five, in reality) to get “new” service started again. That’s one of the many joys of living on a small Caribbean island. They get to you when they get to you and no sooner.


And Happy Blogging!

    “That’s one of the many joys of living on a small Caribbean island. They get to you when they get to you and no sooner.” But, I bet that sea breeze makes things cooler than here at my modest outpost in North Texas!

      Actually, although the real temps usually stay below 90F, the “feels like” goes 10 to 12 degrees above that. Few people venture out between 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM. The last few weeks, air conditioning has gone on at all my neighbors on before 10:00 AM. And nights are always in the 80’s during the summer. The power goes because everyone is indoors with the air conditioning on. Just as things cool, the power goes off and doesn’t come back on until temps are back to outdoors ambient. It gets stuffy indoors, but the option is to suffocate in the “feels like” heat and humidity. The beach is marginally better, but the reflected heat can be murder. Sometimes, even a breeze is absent. But we make do.

        Wow! What an incredible setting for stories you live in! I could easily see a vampire spoof being set there, something like the old one George Hamilton did decades ago. Dracula (or Barnabas Collins or the equivalent) moves there and discovers that it is too damned hot! πŸ™‚ Hope the breeze sticks with you!

  2. I really like the play on words in your blog title – very clever!
