    YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! Yay! (I think)

I’ve had a bug up my butt the past week. I wanted to do some other things with my blog.  Mostly, for now, I wanted to change the look, feel, and theme, but was unhappy with the templates in Blogger.  I could not get custom templates to work the way I wanted to so I went for the migration to WordPress.

After twelve grueling hours of trying just to get my domain name to switch over to WordPress and show me anything, I finally got it work (kind of) at 5 a.m. this morning.  The problem is that hubby was yelling at me to go to bed, and Tantrum Tot woke and was pulling me off the keyboard (big surprise there).

I probably would have stayed on the computer tinkering and not went to bed at all, but alas I gave in and got a few hours sleep and now I am at it again.

I’m still working on pages, and trying to figure out how to use WordPress, add widgets, and plugins (oh dear, what did I do to myself?).  Now I need advice again…

What do you think of the new theme? If you are on WordPress, are there any must have widgets, or plugins that you would suggest? Apparently this widget/plug in in stuff is more complicated than I had originally anticipated.  Either that, or and this is very likely, I have no idea where to look, or what I am doing.  Help!

OH, I almost forgot…feel free to test out my follow/subscribe plugin and stay posted on my latest madness!
