No, that really isn’t the question.
The question is should I completely pull out my hair trying to get my blog up and running.
Well, you say, how hard can it be? And so I say, it depends upon how much you have screwed up your blog design in the first place. So now, we must add a bit of background and some color. I have a very simple web design BUT I want everything to match. (My friends know that, yes, I am a Virgo!). So without much time to actually learn how to modify the templates, I jumped right in and customized the blog pages to match everything else. And it was GOOD!
Then, alas, there was a NEW version of WordPress available. No problem says I, I’ll simply do the update. How hard can it be?
Many hours later, I have installed and uninstalled and updated and re-updated all of the customizations that I had. (Yes, I DID keep backups!) Even my iPhone is back connected.
So now, I suppose, I have no excuse for not updating this from time to time.
