Techno Woes

General wisdom for us creatives is to use our own website as our main platform rather than social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. This makes sense. It does.

However, I have spent countless hours working on my own website, and I’m still not happy with it. I’ve tweaked it where I can, changing fonts and colors. I’m pretty happy with the landing page. But this blog. UGH!

All of a sudden, the “previous” and “next” buttons are skipping posts, and I have no earthly idea why. I’m sure it’s some code. Like that’s going to help me to know that. And why did it change? Could it have had something to do with the recent update? Probably.

UPDATE: I just figured out the previous and next buttons are sorting by category, not date. But still. Ugh!

The thing is, I just want to write. Even if it’s a blog post, I just want to write. It’s the writing that’s fun for me. Maybe this is the year I actually pay someone to redesign my website, if only as a present to myself. I may not make another dime from my writing, but at least I’ll be posting my words on a beautiful (and functional) platform.

And, yes. I’m only writing this post because I want to test out my previous and next buttons. I’ll let you know what happens. Stay tuned…

Do you have a website? Do you design and manage it yourself? Tell me I’m not the only one attempting this insanity!
