Okay, I’m trying to blog outside the box. Or actually inside the box of Blogjet as opposed to freeform in NoteTab Pro’s html editing mode that I’ve been using now for four years plus.
First, let me say how great it is to feel like blogging is a two-way enterprise once again. And then to thank you folks for hanging with me through so many twists and turns to get here, a place I trust will be FFF’s home for some time to come.
From What Sean P tells me, Blog Jet should give me more flexibility with images than I’ve had before (as it takes over some of the formating and sizing operations of posting images) and I hope will become my new normal SOP for getting blogs up every day. However, I’ve grown used to NoteTabPro as an archive of all my past posts and not sure how I feel about giving that up. I have been able to search the NTP file much faster than searching the blog via its search function. There will be trade-offs, for sure.
So, we’re working out the kinks. Got to get up the bloglist and other sidebar items, and don’t think Blog Jet helps with sidebars. Could be wrong. I want better links to image galleries, and better, more thought-out image galleries in the future. I want to do more podcasting—if not the full audiobook thing—and post those links in a permanent part of the sidebar.
I want my little images back up in the banner, and to rotate them weekly or at least monthly. (I’d also like to get the colors I chose for links and such to actually appear when I save my template changes. So far, not working. Trust me: I didn’t chose purple text, I just can’t get rid of it. Bleccch!)
I want to do more writing, though in truth, I will probably do LESS blogging in coming months if my next project gains momentum as I hope it will. But then, you’ll be hearing more about that as soon as I get my head around it.
Well, TGIF. It’s Miller Time. And btw, you should be able to comment now without signing up for a blogger account. We’re squashing bugs every step of the way (no offense to my arthropod friends intended in this figure of speech, understand) and getting back into the blog-groove. Yes!
