I’m having a really hard time dealing with the formatting on my blog lately. I don’t know if wordpress did some updates or something but one day I noticed that two years of my blog photos are just not showing up at all. I spent a little time searching for solutions but quickly gave up. I don’t have time to mess around with a blog. I used to, but I don’t anymore. I have zero patience and desire to fight with something.
It used to work, JUST WORK! Ugh.
That’s why I haven’t been blogging. I get massive motivation to, I feel like it again, I have hundreds of photos edited and resized and ready to go and I open my wordpress site and start adding photos and trying to type and it’s just a total MESS. I HATE it. And being busy and having this JUST be a hobby means that the second there is a struggle and it looks like total crap after the effort of uploading and writing… it takes the wind totally out of my sails and I angrily shut the web window and tell myself, “Forget it, just go make chatbooks and social books from your other social media accounts.” And that’s exactly what I do and it works fine, I have our life documented in books in our apartment for us to flip through, yay for that, BUT I genuinely like looking through photos and stories on my blog. My old blogging is entertaining to me. I LOVE being able to go to the search bar and type in a keyword I’m looking for and find the photos and stories in literally two seconds! “Ember’s birth…” boom, Ember’s birth. “Sierra’s first foot doctor appointment…” boom, first doctor visit to look at Sierra’s toe walking.
I’m mad at my blog. I wish I had time to invest in figuring out code better but I can’t and I’m just plain old sad about it.
(Here are some random photos, just so this isn’t 100% complaining. haha)
We used dots and toothpicks to make things, just like we did in 2016. (That link perfectly shows how some of my photos just disappeared. Grr)
These were for school when we were learning about colonial times. Hornbooks. Colonial children used them to learn from.
I thought I already posted these next photos, if I did, sorry. I traced the kids’ bodies on a large roll of paper and they’re drawing and coloring their organs and body parts for science.
