WordPress is Amazing

I’ve been on WordPress less than a week and I can’t tell you how much I love WordPress. Things are so much easier to do here than on blogger. Here’s a few examples:

When I first moved over here I had a few issues. It was just getting used to the new way of doing things. The one thing I wanted to do was have all my awards on my menu bar. They just didn’t look right after I moved here, so I searched for creating a gallery. Here’s what I found: How to Create an Image Gallery in WordPress.

When I set up all these awards in blogger I did them one at a time after I resized each one of them. On WordPress you don’t have to do that. I saved all my awards on my desktop and then highlighted them and dumped them into my gallery, after choosing the thumbnail size. They started uploading until they were done. All 110 at the same time. I hit publish and I was done. I can do in a few minutes what took me hours in Blogger to do.

The commenting system is hands down miles ahead of Blogger commenting system.

The drag and drop photographs are amazing. It will fit into your post the right way without you having to resize. Just grab a corner and it will resize while maintaining proportions. So easy.

Word Press Support is fantastic.

There are plugins for tons of cool stuff.

I use Mr. Linky’s Magical Widgets. There is a plugin for that and I can set up my links from the bottom of my post. Don’t even have to visit Mr. Linky’s site. I really love that option.

All this and I’ve not even been here a week. Imagine what I’ll find out next week!

I should have moved here long ago.

If you use WordPress what do you love about this system?

Little Bit

Today marks one year since our precious Little Bit went to the bridge. I wish I could say it was easier now, but it’s not. The tears are still there and the pain remains.

Stephanie Faris left this poem in my comments on the passing of Little Bit last year. Today I want to share that poem. Thank you Stephanie.

A Pet’s Peace

by Tracy M. Johnson

I have left you now, but please don’t be sad,
you gave me all the love you had.
You did so much for me in my time here
and I’ll always hold those precious times near.
I know someday you’ll find love again
and into your life will come a new friend.
Your heart will heal, though you’ll never forget
memories like the first time we met.
Memories are wonderful, so keep them close
and remember all the good times the most.
Up in the Heaven for animals is where I’ll be
and someday in the future, each other we’ll see.
I am at PEACE now, so please don’t be sad
You gave me all the love you had.

Tuesday’s Question

One of my favorite blogging buddies, Annie of A Nice Place In The Sun, has been doing Tuesday’s Question for a very long time. I think I’ve played along each week she’s posed a question.

Today she has asked me to author Tuesday’s Question. I’m proud to do so. Not only will I ask a question, but I’ll answer it as well.

What is one of your fondest memories of your childhood. Is it food, a smell, an event, a holiday, or just snuggling with your favorite cat or dog? Was it a vacation or some other outing. I know we all have some great memories. Well I hope you do.

I didn’t have the best of childhoods. I came from a home with lots of turmoil. I guess that’s why I chose this question. As we age most of us look to find good in things and not dwell on the negative. I found many things that were fond memories when I was very young. My mother could sew so very well and when I went to the first grade I had tons of beautiful dresses. Yes we wore dresses to school back in the 50s. I was dressed to the nines. There are bits of pieces of fond memories. A trip to the beach to play in the sand. Learning how to ride my first bicycle, under the watchful eye of my parents. It was a quieter time, and in a world without electronics. Having said all this my fondest memory was anything to do with my wonderful mother. She’s been gone many years and I’d give anything to spend a day with her again.

Now it’s your turn to answer, but I’m going to ask you to give your answer over at Annie’s place @ A Nice Place In The Sun, because I’ve turned off comments here.
