Need to Prioritze

new-years-eve-fireworks-20161231-0002Happy New Year!!  Well, where to start?  I am now half way through my Creating WordPress Websites course and my mind is spinning. So many ideas and information. Talk about information overload!

I guess I didn’t read the syllabus as thoroughly as I should have. Not only is the course covering the technical aspects of web developement, it is also getting into the thought process of who would visit the site, what they would be looking for, the best way to set up the navigation on the site, etc., etc. Don’t get me wrong, this is all great information, but it is overloading this particular brain.

I also seem to have gotten side-tracked a number of times. Should I try to update my current site? Should I build a new site in a sub-domain of my current hosting service vendor? Should I start building a new site with the hosting service vendor that is supporting the course that I am taking? What are the cost implications going forward if I switch vendors? How do I transfer my Domain Name to the other hosting service vendor if I switch? And, I am sure there will be a million more questions very soon.

I ended up experimenting with my current site, a new site on a sub-domain of my current hosting service, and a sub-domain of the class supported hosting service vendor.  Each one has to have its own installation of WordPress which means separate user names and passwords.  Oh, and I also have this blog which is another user name and password for WordPress. Talking about getting very confusing. I almost lost my access to this blog earlier today.

I am beginning to think I should just focus on the course and write down all the other questions as they come up and deal with them later.  That is something that I have always found difficult to do.

Oh well.  I will figure it all out eventually.

  1. Keep plugging away Art, it certainly looks impressive so far!! Lots of great content. The WP course has been great for me as well.


    1. Thanks John. I still have a long way to go before I will be happy with it.

      Your site is really good. I love the layout. Your weight loss journal is fascinating. I am sitting at about 197 at the moment which is not great for me. I hope to get down to around 18o lbs at some point. We will see how long it takes. You seem to have a lot better game plan than I do. At the moment, I really don’t have a plan and not sure I want to. lol


  2. Thanks for the kind words Art, it took a while and I’ve changed templates a few times, but you’re well on your way. You have some awesome content for sure. One change I would make is when someone comments on your blog/website. In the back end, Go to settings and then discussion and change your comments to “comments must be manually approved”. That way you get to look at comments before they show up on your site. It just saves some embarrassment if someone posts some unkind comments and you happen to not see it for a while.
