After finally running out of patience with Blogger, I have switched over to Wordpress. The learning curve was steeper than I expected, having never used php or css or any newfangled coding like that before. Much credit goes to my husband, who finally got everything working!
I'm going to try and import all of my old Blogger posts within the next few days, since I'd hate to lose all that history. Meanwhile, please let me know what you think and if anything looks funky in your browser.
I look forward to posting here on my “new” blog and hope you come back and read a little sometime!
