Blog Under Construction-please excuse my dust

Yikes!!! As with my retirement, I am still in the process of crafting my blog. Two weeks ago I didn’t know a widget from a hole in the ground. I always thought they (widgets) were some mass produced thing-a-ma-gig that served no purpose, but I’m getting there.  I have been working with Learning the Fundamentals provided by WordPress. I finally figured out how to leave a comment on someone else’s blog, but am still trying to figure out how to respond to comments I receive on my blog. So Georgie and Terri, thank you for your comments, suggestions, and encouragement. I appreciate them.

I signed into Grammarly. It has already corrected two typos.Yesterday I signed up for Canva so I could add some images to my posts. A bit confusing. So I went to Pexels, chose a photo, now I  need to figure out how to download the photo to my post. No go. So I went to my own photos and tried to attach one. Still without a photo.   Maybe I’d better add technologically challenged to my “About Me” page.

OMG!! I may have just figured it out! Doin my happy dance. Not so technologically challenged now.

And now, for my next trick,  I shall attempt to add links to my two mentors. Dang, my first try was a bust. Then I got sidetracked by the little bell in the upper right-hand corner of my screen, telling me to “manage my comments.” Learning something new every five minutes.

My second attempt. Copied and pasted the URL (whatever that means)

I thought this would underscore or highlights the links, but it didn’t. Maybe if I press “Publish” it will do so. Let’s see. Yep, I gave it a test and Viola! It works.

Gonna head out now, but first let me regale you with another one of my favorite photos. Caption included. So proud!
