As I approach the 4th anniversary of Fiddledeedee, I knew I was in need of a blog re-do. Fiddledaddy has been dangling the new Thesis WordPress Theme carrot in front of my face, seducing me with the technological wonderfulness of it all. Yes, but will it tell me I’m pretty?
I’ve been dragging my feet about the whole thing. Because change? I am not a fan. But last week we discovered that my site had been hacked into by all manner of disreputable pharmaceutical spambots. Therefore lighting a fire under Fiddledaddy’s office chair to quickly change the theme, since Thesis is a more sound and secure WordPress venue.
Does it sound like I know what I’m talking about? Because I really have no idea.
After a good deal of tweaking, trial & error, and an Excedrin or 15, we’ve finally worked out a new design. And by we, I mean that Fiddledaddy presents me with his hard work, and I either approve it or violently shake my head NO. And then add my twenty cents. And then go fetch him some more Excedrin. Or wine. Or both.
The basics are all together now, and we just need to make a few buttons and adjustments. Again, I’ll just point and nod my head. Although, I must say that with this new theme, even I am able to go into the back end of my blog and change stuff without fear of bringing the entire internet to a grinding halt.
I’m making a few changes while I’m at it. I’ve added a homeschool section in my toolbar for homeschooling resources and links that I love. Also, because so many people have asked about it, I added Atopic Dermatitis as a Category, so that Jensen’s journey and what methods of treatment we use can be more easily found.
I’ll likely be constantly tweaking and rearranging the furniture until I get it just the way I like it. So bear with me.
So, whaddaya think?
