It looks like a site, but does it work like a site?

Painted in Waterlogue

My repair and redo labors continues on my WordPress blog. It is taking considerably longer to fix than “just the few days” I had blithely promised on the day that my blog imploded.

HA! I can’t imagine what possessed me to make such an impulsive statement, which given my computer skills was not even remotely possible. Not even with help from the blog fixer fairy, no way.

Of course part of my reaction can be chalked up to fear that anyone who lands on my blog, will leave, never to return. Maybe I was in shock, after all it was the day that my blog imploded.

The explosion occurred several days ago. I logged into WordPress in the usual way. What I found on my home page can only be be described as a word explosion. There were words, phrases, categorizes & post titles strewn about everywhere, covering the entire area where recent posts would normally appear. The huge amount of words, words. words written in minuscule script, which incidentally allowed many more words than usual, could be squeezed into that space.

What a novel approach to capture the interest of any visitors landing here. Why their curiosity alone, would provide motivation for them to return. How’s that for a strategy to increase visitors?

The Education of Barbara Harms Begins 

I started to hyperventilate, dizziness set in. “Oh NO! This was going to require serious computer skills to fix this mess!!”

Then as if that was not enough, in a moment of weakness or insanity, I added “while I’m   at it, I’d give my blog a revamp, spruce it a bit”

Still, good can come from many unpleasant situations we experience in life.

Much depends on how we choose to view them. [she said, attempting optimism.] I am going to look at this as an oppurtunity to do something that I’ve put of far too long, make an effort to learn something more about my computer, my blog and my website. I’m launching an assault on my ignorance. I’m gong to read every support article I can, even with much difficulty.

The education of Barbara Harms moves ahead. I have made a few cosmetic changes to the blog, ones I’ll likely change when I can figure a few things out. I’m just barely beginning to understand some of the basics, adding content back bit by bit. I just wanted you to know what is happening so you don’t throw up your hands in frustration & leave, never to return.

I must go to bed it’s almost 3:30 a.m, the brain function is fading fast & the hideously  misspelled words and disjointed thoughts are surfacing in real force, that’s my cue. Good  night.

About Myself & My Approach To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think that this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. Personal Links
