A MAKEOVER

The definition of a makeover is ‘a complete transformation of the appearance of someone or something’.

As many of you might have noticed the recent something that underwent a makeover this week is my blog! A task I’ve wanted to tackle for ages, however I was apprehensive and hence procrastinated.

Would the whole blog disappear if a mistake was made? Maybe all the wonderful comments would erroneously be deleted? The calamities surrounding the possible makeover seemed insurmountable!

To the rescue came my son, a university computer science student, and when he heard my thoughts (and my fears) he promptly offered to help — the very next day!

Yikes! My musings to combine my blog with an author website was finally going to see the light of day.

Where to start?

Where else but the fantastic community of WordPress which I had explored over some months. I’d collated various articles by bloggers and two particularly were ones I referred to over and over again.

Natalie Ducey is not only a wonderful poet and graphic designer; she also prepares the most informative posts about all aspects of blogging. Were it not for her encouragement I would not even have considered the possibility of updating my website.

Through her, I learnt how to download new fonts and how to use them. My ‘signature’ here is in a font I found via her blog and is called ‘Saturday’. The background element upon which it rests is one I bought upon her suggestion. I love its calm and tranquil feeling, reminiscent both of the sea and sky.

Next came the matter of a new theme. I learned that my old theme, Sela, had retired — hopefully with a good pension! Hugh Roberts, a writer and prolific blogger provides super blogging tips at Hugh’s Views and News.

One of his posts featured WordPress themes and he listed some of his favourites. I looked at many of these and finally settled upon one which seemed best to suit my purposes. The theme of my website is called ‘Lovecraft’ and is free to use from WordPress.

Although at one stage I had a tag line underneath my blog, I had taken this away as it no longer reflected me or my work. Tag lines are key to describing you, your website or blog within just a few words, to win the attention of readers and hopefully retain their interest. After considering all the terrific comments about my books, stories and posts I realised two elements within my life stood out and influenced my written works. I feel I captured this within the final tag line of:

‘A writer influenced by her Swedish heritage and Yorkshire upbringing.’

As the deadline for the revamp approached I sketched out a welcome message, organised my book reviews in a document and found the appropriate images and photographs.

The day arrived and my son and I sat down at my computer!

Switching the theme was frighteningly easy but until the button was clicked I nervously kept asking was he sure this was okay? Would I lose anything? By the third reassurance and my hand hovering over the mouse he took affirmative action, borrowed the mouse and clicked the button!

Yeah! My website was on its way to a full makeover! The title and tag line were set to a large font. A custom background colour was selected from the palette and the gentle lavender harmonised all the elements within the website.

Next, there was so much to consider we ended up making a list.

The biggest change was my ‘Welcome’ introduction post. I wanted something brief, engaging and with my photo which was to be pinned to the top of the website. All was achieved — I just hadn’t realised it would be published as a post! As this was more of an informative introduction to the website the comments were removed. Searching Google my son found that the removal of likes and sharing was in the jetpack icon on the top right of the WordPress draft post. An icon I have never even touched before!

Next headings were created and my son set up sub-headings; something I’ve always longed to do and which have impressed when I’ve seen them on other blogs.

Of course, the headings had to lead to something.

For my books and their reviews we made new pages (and to activate these, one needs to click ‘publish’ but fear not, these are not published as a post!)

Last year I finally had managed to add a ‘Contact’ form but only via my ‘About’ page and it was not ideal. As if by magic my son transferred the previous ‘About & Contact’ into HTML, copied the code for the ‘Contact’ form. Once again I had a neater looking ‘About’ page and he quickly set up a new ‘Contact’ heading and page.

As for the sidebar, several elements have been taken away as I felt the website would benefit from a more streamlined and ultimately decluttered appearance.

One issue we discovered was my sprinkling of categories in my previous posts which makes it tricky to settle on just a handful of ‘Blog Topics’ for the drop-down menu. In my early days of blogging, I had no real understanding of categories and liberally made new ones, even for just one obscure subject! These will not be captured by the new headings. Furthermore, some had different types of spellings, eg. Short Stories and short stories, writings, Writings and writing! The only solution is that over time I will edit the categories on my older posts to make them more inclusive.

I’m sure there is yet much more that needs tweaking but in the meantime, I am proud to present to you my new and updated website. I hope you’ve enjoyed reading about its creation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask … and I will pass on the queries to my son! Many thanks to him for all his hard work and patience!

Finally, a shameless shoutout for my musical son Sammy and his Youtube channel. Here he features over 80 of his piano covers, as well as his own compositions and own piano sheet music. For his latest venture, he is taking commissions for sheet music which he creates himself. If there is a piece you, your family or friends long to play but can’t find the sheet music do not hesitate and contact Sammy directly at sammy2580@hotmail.com

And at last, a brief reminder of my two books available via Amazon or myself.

  1. Love your new Make over too Annika… very professional looking and a joy to the eye…. And wonderful you have such a talented Son to help you make the transition…. Huge has some great tips over there… His tip on downloading your content to your computer in case of hic-cups is something I do on a regular basis… 😀 It comes in a Zipped folder and you can store it in your computer and should God forbid our sites ever get hacked or go down… We have our full contact ready to upload again…

    1. Sue, thank you so much and it’s great how you find the site professional looking as this was one angle I wanted to achieve. I’d studied a lot of other author websites, wrote down elements I liked but realised I still wanted my blog to stand out as well!

      Thank you for the reminder about saving the site content and I’ve just done this now. Something I used to in the early days of blogging but totally forgot! I must reread Hugh’s posts! Yikes! I hadn’t thought about the sites being hacked but I suppose you never know. There are indie authors who have had their books ‘stolen’ and fought to shut down the websites selling them illegally. Never easy!

      Hope the sun is shining for you too this weekend and have a lovely couple of days! The gardens are still a delight this time of year! hugs xx 😀❤️

  2. Annika, I love everything about your makeover. I liked the “old you” too.❤️

    Your site looks bright, fresh and welcoming. The colour is calming.

    I am also due for a makeover and I have the same concerns you list. I need your son to pay me a visit. Then I could also listen to his beautiful music first hand.🙂

    If imitation is a form of flattery, I will investigate some of your tips ie Lovecraft, with your permission. I will spend some concentrated time researching options.

    I have bookmarked your site and references.

    (An aside, Annika: I did order “The Storyteller Speaks” from Amazon at the onset of quarantine. After a delayed period of time, I received a note back from Amazon, they had sent back my order and refunded me. Supposedly the book/packaging was damaged in transit. I will reorder. ).

    Take care, and I hope all is well in your part of the world.❤️

    1. Ahh … Erica, I’m so glad you liked the ‘old me’ too. So did I, it’s just I wanted to highlight my books a bit more and also, I love redoing things! Every six months I used to change my room around as young! 😀 Oh, my son would love to help if that was possible … and he’s always happy to play some music! Do you have a piano to hand? Do you play, perhaps?

      How exciting that you are thinking of making some changes to your site and good luck with this. I wrote this post as I wanted to help others who are mulling this over. I’m over the moon if it’s given you inspiration and ideas. The Lovecroft theme is very good. I spent days going through so many – I would find others then realised you had to pay for them! Have fun experimenting with new possibilities and I’ll look out for the ‘new you’!

      BTW. I’m so sorry Amazon messed around with the book delivery. I heard in Spring that they cancelled quite a few of orders of my books. One friend had ordered another book with them recently and received an empty envelope! No book, nothing! They quickly rectified this but still annoying. I’m glad everything is sorting for you.

      Take care and wishing you a lovely rest of the week. xx ❤️

      1. Annika, I do have a piano and I used to play. I now have hand/finger issues. Yet, I am always grateful what I am capable of doing.

        You have inspired me. I will be unplugged for awhile in September and then I will dive into my research. I appreciate your candor and generosity with your time sharing information. You remind me how I can “experiment” without immediately committing to a new theme.

        I figure Amazon is a busy place with many challenges. I greatly appreciate your personal message to me. I think it is almost your weekend in your time zone. Thank you for connecting with me. I know you are a very busy lady. Enjoy your weekend and I look forward to staying in touch. xx ❤️

    1. Kimberlee, thank you and I wish you best of luck and fun with your own site makeover!😀 I feel Autumn /Winter are a good time for these tasks … and that’s when I started planning my own! The execution of the task just took much longer! 😀

  3. Congratulations on the new look, Annika! It is truly beautiful, refreshing, and crisp. I love what you and your son have created. What a blessing to have him in your life, willing to help. That’s wonderful and very heartwarming. ♥

    Your posts are inspirational and your blog is beautiful. I wish you nothing but the very best of success. Oh, and I wholeheartedly agree with you about Natalie Ducey. She’s precious and extremely helpful on her blog.

    All My Best,
    Holly

    1. Holly, it’s lovely to meet you here on WordPress and thank you so much for your great comment! 😀 It was a joy to work with my son on creating the new look to my site and such a treat for me! He is the biggest blessing in my life and in the midst of it all it’s been special to have him unexpectedly home for six months. Although obviously, the reason for it is beyond tragic. He’s soon back to uni so it will take a bit of adjusting for me! Sorry for the ramble here …

      Oh, Natalie is wonderful and I love her work and all the blog support – a genuinely warm, friendly and creative person and it feels like I’ve known her a long time!

      I look forward to visiting your blog. Take care, xx

  4. This is such a clean makeover and you are so lucky to have a son in computer science. Revamping my website has been on my mind for a long time but I just don’t seem to get to it. After reading your post with all your wonderful suggestions and links about blogging I feel more motivated. But what’s more important right now is that your new website is really terrific! Congratulations! ❤

    1. Carol, thank you so much! 😀 I’m so glad you like the new look to my website and it’s been my wish to change this for quite a while now and I’m over the moon with the final result. Oh yes, computer science is a great subject for today’s world and I’m very thankful for all the help my son gave for the revamp! It’s wonderful if my post had given you a bit of nudge to change your site … posts about the topic gave me the initial impetus a year ago. It’s a lot to consider beforehand and I did a lot of investigations what I wanted – in the end, it was a matter to make all the changes online! Still scary though! 😀 Good luck and wishing you well. xx

      1. Something else that has given me a nudge (much unwanted, I must admit) is the new WordPress Block Editor!
        With all the thinking which went into your new website, no wonder it is so attractive and accessible! Be safe and creative. ❤

  5. I love your new website! I too have a computing science son but haven’t yet asked him to help me, as I want to try and figure it out myself to start. My website’s on another server but I want to eventually move it over to WordPress, where my blog is. I just find it quite daunting to do this right now. Kudos to you!

    1. Thank you so much, Debra! 😀 If I were you I would make full use of your son to move your website to WordPress …would you combine the two or have them running side by side on WP? It sounds daunting to me too. Along the way, I’ve learnt a lot and I’ve even managed to add a couple of pages and headings which I realised were left out! Have fun with all the changes when you decide to go ahead … and have your son available on speed dail for emergencies! 😀

  6. I love the makeover of your site, Annika!! I’ve been thinking of doing a redesign on mine, but I’ve been hesitant. Did you make your site private while you worked on it, or did you keep it live?

    1. Liz, thank you so much and I hope I’ve inspired you a little bit to go ahead with the redesign of your own site! 😀 It is nerve-wracking but so much fun. I did consider working on it in private but then thought my blog would not be visible to others so I kept it live. There might have been some confusion for a bit but it seems to have worked okay. I did have all the elements ready beforehand and my son was luckily quick with doing all the headings, pages etc. Good luck when you come to change your site – and I’ll keep a lookout for the new look!😀

  7. Hi Annika, Congratulations on your makeover. I think it looks very elegant, and I love the photo of your study in this article – it looks the perfect place for a writer. Toni x

    1. Toni, thank you so much! 😀 My study alas does not like anywhere this tidy at the moment but I love working here … whenever I’m stuck in my writing I just look out across the trees or at the pictures on the wall and become inspired again! xx

  8. Congratulations on your revamp, Annika – it is an enormous undertaking! and I love the fresh new exciting look of the face of your blog! Isn’t it wonderful to have help from all corners! Looking forward to visiting often!

    1. Ju-Lyn, it will be lovely to have you visiting here often and after a hiatus of blogging, I’m hoping to pick it up regularly again!😀 I’m so glad you like the new look … there is definitely a lot to plan ahead before the undertaking. Yet one I wouldn’t have completed without help! It’s wonderful when our children become our teachers!😃

    1. Thanks, Charley! 😀 I’m chuffed I went ahead though must admit without my son at my side I doubt I would have dared. Thank you so much, I got your email and will write back soon. Some interesting bookish sites to take a closer look at! xx

  9. Congrats, Annika! Your new “look” is beautiful and inviting. Now I know why I couldn’t comment on your photo post. 🙂 It is scary when trying something new on our blogs, especially when it only takes one click and poof, all could be lost. I think most of us would have a heart attack if that happened. So glad you had wonderful support and I’m proud that your two books join my other favorites in my bursting-at-the-seams bookcase. Much love to you. 💗

    1. Lauren, I see you totally understand my terror of losing my whole blog! 😀😀 I needed the support, encouragement, coaxing but now over the moon with the final result. I’m so glad you like it too. I realised that the ‘welcome’ post was rather obscure so quickly prepared this post! Ahh … thank you so much for adding my two books to your burgeoning TBR – something we all suffer from but happily so. Enjoy if you have a chance to read them! love & hugs xx ❤️

      1. Oh, I’ve already read your lovely books and they rest comfortably in my bookcase with the other favorites. I thought I had told you. You have an amazing talent for storytelling! Much love 💕

        1. I’m so sorry, Lauren. I thought so too but mis-read your first comment! I’m chuffed to bits my books are resting on your burgeoning bookshelf! I’ve just re-read your wonderful review of ‘The Storyteller Speaks’ – it is fantastic and means so much to me. I have a feeling we could discuss books all day long! love & hugs xx❤️

  10. Congrats! Annika, I love the new look.
    I had been thinking of making some changes,too, but had been procrastinating. Now you have motivated me to do the same. 🙂

    1. Norma, I think I have a degree in procrastination in certain areas and re-doing the site is one! 😀 I’m so pleased you’ve found encouragement here and seriously if you have any questions drop me line! I’ve learnt quite a bit along the way and can maybe help! Good luck and I look forward to seeing your site makeover! 😀

  11. Technical things scare me too. I had my son (T.S. Tech Support) help set my blog up in the very beginning and he helps with everything on my computer. He even does a lot of it remotely as he lives in another state and only gets to visit once a year or so. He logs into my computer and works so quickly it makes me dizzy watching my mouse dance around. I have to give permission and be online for him to make changes and fix things but it helps so much. My daughter is also very capable but my son loves helping me with it. I’ll keep this page open for a bit and check out all the helpful information here. You never know. 😉 You did a good and brave thing here and will probably help so many that wanted to do it but were afraid. Thanks.

    1. Marlene, your son sounds like a real pro at this tech stuff and I’ve given permission for computer programmers to my Mac when sorting problems and like you say, it is amazing to see the mouse icon flittering across the screen opening things that were deeply hidden within it. How brilliant you’ve got this support from afar … maybe I can suggest this to my son as he goes off to uni soon! I’m trying to cram learn all I need to know at the moment! 😀 Thank you so much for your lovely and kind comment … I was so dreading the revamp of my blog and posts from fellow WordPress members initially gave me the impetus to take a look and even consider it! It would be great if my words here can help others even just a little bit. Some things might have seemed a bit obvious but I find those are the parts that often seem the hardest or most confusing! Hope you’re having a great week and keeping well. xx

    1. Thank you so much, Mae! 😀 I feel like it shouldn’t be such a big deal but I think we all care very much for the work we put into our blogs etc. we don’t want anything to go wrong!

  12. I love your new look Annika. Good for you, we all know how much work is involved to alter our websites, lol. We are writers, signing up for all the tech aggro gave us no choice but to learn. And I agree, Hugh and Natalie have great website helpful tips. Beautiful! ❤

    1. Exactly, Debbie! 😀 We all learn so much along the way … and next time I won’t have any qualms about making big changes (although next time will probably be another 5+ years!) So glad you like the new look! xx

    1. It’s great you find the website makeover ‘pleasing to the eye’ – just what I hoped to achieve! It is an incredible amount of work – I spent ages procrastinating on all the possible themes alone! Without a steadying and reassuring hand by my side I wouldn’t have dared go ahead! Next time though I can manage all by myself! (I think!)😀

    1. Yep! Ditto!!😀 I recognise that impatience and at times we almost have a tussle over the phone/mouse/iPad as I want to learn how to do things myself! Precious moments and where would we be without them! 😀

    1. And I even closed my eyes! Just as if I was on a scary amusement ride! 😀 Imagine the big sigh of relief when I saw all was okay. I’m so glad you like the new look, Rebecca! xx

  13. Well done you, Annika! (and your son 🙂 ) 🙂 🙂 I have so much wanted to do this, but am both trepidacious and lazy :(. I imagined that the virus might give me additional time and as the deadline to renew my blog approached started to set up a new Rjo blog but I was easily discouraged and gave up and renewed the old me 🙂 Perhaps if my son was nearer. Yours has done a brilliant job in holding your hand. A successful partnership.

    1. Jo, warmest thanks for your delightful comment!😀 I’ve wanted to make a change to my site for a long time and at last found a good moment for us both! I doubt I would have gone ahead without my son’s help, to be honest. They are very handy!! And I only have another week or so before he is back full time at uni! It is a daunting prospect to make a big change and I’ve often hovered over the change theme button but always backed off! Until my hand was held this time! Good luck with your own website – you can do it!! Or maybe your son can help remotely? Have a lovely rest of the week. xx

  14. What a wonderful job you two did, your website is just lovely. Tasteful and classy, yet simple and easy to get around. I’ve often thought of buying my own wordpress website where I can still write my blog. I’d seen other people do it and have all kinds of problems that they struggled clearing up. Sounds like you and your son did a great job of avoiding that. I’m not technical enough to figure it all out.

    Congratulations.

    1. Lori, thank you so much for your lovely comment! 😀 It means so much that you like both the design as well as the ease to navigate around the site! I haven’t bought a theme but do pay a yearly cost towards my own domain name. WordPress is both intuitive to use and then suddenly not so…. which is where the help came in handy! It was fun working with my son on the project – a real treat for me and I’ve learnt lots along the way! (Although how much I’ll remember is another matter!) 😀

      Hope you’re keeping well and look forward to catching up with your blog – I have been rather absent these months! xx

    1. Betsy, I’m glad if you felt the post was helpful and if it helps you a bit in the future! 😀 Without the starting point of other bloggers writing on the topic I would not even have considered making changes. Ahhh … thank you for the three cheers for Sammy – I’m passing them on to him! 😀

    1. I’m so glad you like the changes, Lavinia — simple and elegant was just what I was going for! It’s great you’ve bookmarked Sammy’s site and enjoy listening to the varied music when you have a chance! xx

  15. Well done, you’ve both done a wonderful job! It’s always nerve-wrecking to play around with things (sites) that aren’t broken. 🙂 Yet the process is not that difficult and the end result is always satisfying. Yours with its minimalist visual appearance looks fresh and elegant.

    As for Sammy and his beautiful music, I’m keeping in mind…

    1. Khaya, thank you so much! 😀 Fresh and elegant is just what I was aiming for! It’s interesting how you noted that it’s nerve-wracking to change things which aren’t broken … that is so true! I’ve found this in many aspects of my life, not just here but also this week also with my garden. One border for years has been okayish with a sprinkling of pretty flowers. Not bad enough to warrant a whole makeover but not very satisfactory. In the end, everything was dug up, removed and finally, today planted lots of new bushes and flowers. I’m delighted with the final result — it’s just a matter of taking that initial step!

      Ahh … thank you also for your lovely comment about Sammy’s music … it means a lot to him!

      Hope you’re having a great start to the week. hugs xx

  16. High five, Annika! Your new design looks amazing and so welcoming. 🙂 Way to go!
    I fully appreciate the anxious moments experienced during the entire process, but it’s so worth it in the end. Many thanks for the lovely shout-out, as well. That’s so kind of you. You rock! xo

    1. Natalie, you might recall that I was working on this for ages but then sort of stalled – I’m so glad to get there in the end and to use the elements you shared via your blog! I’m over the moon with them. Oh, anxious moments definitely describes the minutes leading up to swapping the theme … then so easy it was a bit of an anticlimax!

      Hope you’re keeping well and safe. Take care. xx

  17. I noticed your Welcome page a couple of days ago, Annika. And I’m so glad that this post came up with the news. I knew something was happening. A beautiful new theme and the blog looks great! I’ve thought about doing the same, but feel soooo scared to mess with it. Can I borrow your son? Lol. He did a great job with that mouse. Congrats, my friend. The place looks great!

    1. Diana, I realised my ‘Welcome’ post was very mysterious and confusing and hence I scribbled together this post to explain what had happened and hopefully by sharing some of my experiences it will give others much-needed courage! If I can do this, you can, Diana!!😀 Oh, I’m sure Sammy would love to help but he’s off to uni soon and then non-stop studies and music … hence the sudden new look to my blog! I’m so glad you like it – I do so want all visitors to feel warmly welcome and to take a peek around! Wishing you a great (and no doubt very busy) week ahead! xx

  18. You did a wonderful job. I love everything about it, Annika. It’s elegant, clean, and probably so much like you.

    PS–I clicked through to Sammy’s YT channel, just to check things out!

    1. Bless you, Jacqui for your lovely comment! 😀 You have often reminded us to consider updating our blogs, changing things around and your words buried themselves in my psyche and I’ve slowly been working up to this moment!

      Thanks for checking out Sammy’s YouTube site and hope you enjoyed a musical interlude!

    1. Clive, this was the first theme change since I started the blog over five years ago – hence the state of ‘panic’! It makes a huge difference I realise … the additional changes were tricky too. I’m so pleased you like the final result!

      1. I’ve changed mine several times – including a seasonal change for December – but only using the WP templates. I’ve not tried anything more ambitious, but you’ve done a great job with yours!

    1. Thank you and I definitely am very happy with the final look! 😀 I must admit I’m still slightly confused when I initially click on my site – just getting used to as are others no doubt!

  19. Congratulations on your new makeover of your blog, Annika and nice of your son to help you. Good to know about your two new books. Will definitely download the one with the short stories. Sounds amazing. Great to know of your son and his music. Will have a look at him on Youtube channel. Thanks for the awesome share.

    1. Kamal, thank you so much for your lovely message and your warm interest in my books and Sammy’s music!😀 It was a wonderful to work with my son on the website makeover and it’s always sweet when children start teaching us! Hope you’re having a great start to the week.

  20. Congratulations, Annika, on your beautiful web site makeover! You may want to do a backup of your blog, easy to do via Tools/ Export in WordPress. Hugh has a post on how to back up your blog and its media content. I do my blog back up at month end as it’s easy for me to remember that way. Thank you for the link to your son’s Youtube channel. I’m listening to his music as I type this. You are both so talented. Have a wonderful week ahead!

    1. Natalie, thank you so much! It’s been a lot of fun to work on this with my son! Ahh … I’m so glad you’re enjoying his music! 😀 I’d forgotten all about the back up of the blog via WP – I did do this in the early days and since have totally forgotten about it! Many thanks for the reminder and all safely stored away. Now I don’t need to worry about my blog disappearing ever again!😀 Thank you, it’s a lovely Bank Holiday start to the week … wishing you a great week ahead too. xx

  21. It looks fantastic, Annika! Congratulations to you on your bravery and to your talented son. I loved seeing your bright and cheery writing space. It’s so organized! You’ve inspired me today. Once I submit my manuscript, that’s due tomorrow, I plan to clean up my office. It’s a mess right now. I can hardly see my desk…and I’m a neat person! Thanks for sharing your makeover with us. xo

    1. Haha!! 😀😀 Jill, this is not how my study normally looks! I am also a neat person but at the moment papers, files and books are piled on every available surface! Every so often I’ll tidy up but within a week the organised clutter returns! Wow! How exciting to be submitting your next manuscript – best of luck with it. I’m loving your latest book, your writing shines and is extremely self-assured and confident! As for Riley, I think every reader will fall for her innocent charm! So glad you like the new look of my website and I definitely would not have gone ahead without the help of my son! Glad I mentioned it before he returns to uni soon.

      Wishing you a wonderful Sunday … happy final edits! hugs xx

    1. Yeah! 😀 Darlene, it’s great you like the new look to my website. I hadn’t changed it in over five years and a lot has changed in my life since then which I felt needed to be reflected here. It’s been fun to plan and execute but definitely nerve-wracking as well. Good luck with your own website makeover when you decide to go ahead!

  22. Congratulations, Annika, to a great Makeover! It is brilliant, so clear and
    attractive. Totally uncluttered and with very welcoming fonts.

    I enjoy reading about your fears and hesitations and do understand. So much work could be lost with a click on a button. Patient son comes to the rescue.
    I have always enjoyed your posts and will continue to do so, I am sure.

    Saw your ‘shout out’ for Sammy and will go and listen to him promptly. 😊.

    Miriam

    1. Ahh .. thank you so much, Miriam! I’m so glad you enjoyed all the new changes and like the idea of ‘welcoming fonts’!😀 It’s strange, as I had an image in my head how I wanted to the website to look and it’s just as it is here! I can’t quite believe we did it! Oh yes, a very patient son indeed as I continuously kept checking all the steps! I’ve learnt a lot now about WP … although the new Gutenberg editor still drives me to frustration! Bless you, for your kind comment about my posts and I hope you enjoy my new ones just as much! Wishing you a wonderful and relaxing Sunday! xx
