Bye-Bye Twitter

I've ruminated about the downfall of Twitter for days. Ever since Elon Musk took over, I realize the platform's days are numbered. Musk intends on destroying the site and remaking it into something else. https://twitter.com/SanaBan55403916/status/1593556125563101186 I've decided to delete my Twitter account. I've had an on-again, off-again relationship with social media since I started blogging … Continue reading Bye-Bye Twitter

Something New…

WordPress gave me a credit for the WordPress Pro debacle which enabled me to recreate my author blog once again. Please note the site address is https://colleenmchesebro.com. I had to add my middle initial, so this might be a bit clunky at first. It will take me a few days to migrate things over from Word … Continue reading Something New…

Things are looking up!

Things are looking up. It appears that WP has completed the migration of my posts from the ether of the pro plan back to the premium plan. I tried to catch all the links, but you know how this is. Let me know if something doesn't work. Otherwise, I think we're good to go! Hurray! … Continue reading Things are looking up!

WordPress Woes Continue

I'm convinced that the Pro Plan was causing all of my WordPress woes. So, I'm back to the premium plan. In the meantime, all of my posts have disappeared. This will take some fixing. I just wanted to let you all know what was going on. Thanks. ~Colleen~

I know the editor was updated again. 🙄 Since I updated to WordPress Pro, I'm considered to be wordpress.com and wordpress.org—both at the same time. There was updating there as well. Read this: … Continue reading WordPress Woes

I promised to share my experience switching from the WP Premium to the Pro plan. As I shared earlier last week, WP has done away with the majority of plans, leaving only the free plan and WP Pro plan to choose from. Check out this page for the comparison details. The free plan gives you … Continue reading Pro vs. Free WordPress

So, this theme is quite different from what we're used to on old WP. The comments are found by clicking the Read More link or the itty bitty tiny comments icon show below: I'm still getting used to the theme, so if you see something strange let me know. You're stuck with the fonts... but … Continue reading More Updates
