The website is up

Yessiree Bob!

www.chrissymunder.com what was only a semi-irrational thought on Friday is now up and running.

I'm not quite sure I'm thrilled with all the colors, etc. yet - but I'm there.

I was also going to start a blog and link it seeing as how so many people seem to get defeated by the "must be 18" box on LJ - but I've been totally dissatisfied with the setup and isntructions of the two blogs I've tried. So, LJ is still it.

Thanks! I'll take all the advice I can get. Since my webhosting service is through Yahoo I had a couple of free blog options - the first was the Yahoo 360 - which, for some reason just irritated me immensely. I was frustrated that it was so simplistic and I couldn't do what I wanted with it.

The 2nd option they gave me and I set up is WordPress. Now, I truly believe the difficulty is my total and absolute inexperience with WordPress as it requires a certain amount of savvy that I don't have.

Not for using it, I've posted a couple of posts and played with it a bit - but for some of the setup features - like changing my theme to one that's not basic. That requires it be downloaded. Well, since my WordPress software is downloaded to the Yahoo servers and not my home computer I need to figure out how to download to those servers and then open the new themes up and apply etc.

See - it's me. I was already frustrated with the website software not working correctly and just decided to hang on the WordPress until I had time to pour through their codex.

So, as long as I'm ok with the more basic theme I could go ahead and be very merry with the blog - but honestly, I'm kind of missing LJ when I play on it.

There's a lot of features on LJ like the the lj-cuts and some others that I enjoy.

Honestly, I could also try some other basic blogging software and just put a link to it on my pages. I just thought I'd try what Yahoo was offering.

*strokes the P-andrews blog lovingly* pretty, pretty.

yeah, I want one like that.

It does look very cool. Perhaps that's incentive for me to play around with it next weekend.

It looks cool! (it makes me want to rush off and smarten up my own site which looks rather immature in comparison... LOL)

Keep me posted with the blog issues because I may follow in your footsteps.

*points* see above long winded reply. LOL.

Thank you! I appreciate the feedback.

I'll have to decide if I want to keep the LJ, play with the WordPress software or try some of the other blogging software out there, I've seen some that's much easier to use.

But, I have to say - I've gotten pretty used to a lot of LJ features and enjoy them. The only reason I'd think about switching to another blog service is that I've had people tell me they get confused by the "over 18 box" and that sometiems when they click on it nothing happens.

Thanks for that! I'll bear it in mind. I need the time to do some more work on my website / blog in total - but it's finding it!!
