The Pivot

So like any great journey undertaken, things don't always go as planned or expected. At some point you have to pivot and re-focus your efforts. I feel I have the right vision in mind, but where to start is more fluid. How all the pieces fit together is still coming together. I was originally planning on having all my stuff under one site. But as I thought more about it the conflict of something being useful like a self improvement blog being considered a "time sink" isn't exactly re-assuring. I am working on essentially re-branding my blog already. Even the Time-Sink part of my blog…

Slow growth

I don't know if I said it before, but this isn't as easy as I thought it might be. I am not sure how people can keep up with these sorts of things all the time. I am sure it will come easier with time but trying to think of what to write is tough. One thing I didn't expect to be such a pain is constant plugin updates that are required with a webpage. It seems like every other day there is something that needs an update or change in order to be more secure. I hope I am doing it right though. If…

It is all baby steps in my opinion but at least it is starting to look like a webpage. I am finding some shortcomings with the items I have used to setup my blog. Mainly because right now I am trying not to spend much more money on the setup and launching of it. Working with the free versions of things always has drawbacks. I have used OceanWP as the main theme, and Elementor as an editor.…

Welcome

Photo by rawpixel.com from Pexels Thought this should be my first official post. Welcome to Time-Sink a place where I will be sinking a fair amount of my time, and hopefully you will also be sinking some of yours. I have been trying to figure out WordPress for a few weeks now, and think that I might have bit off a little more than I can chew. I am new to blogging and documenting things so anyone that visits early will hopefully see some growth and improvement over the course of time. I was really trying at first to get my layout and colors and images set early…
