It’s cold outside, and wet and rainy. But it’s Friday!!!!! And that’s a good thing.
I’ve been cranking for two weeks (including weekends) trying to get the website switched over to dreamweaver and my internet life to a new machine/operating software. There were formatting issues, navigation issues, learning a new operating system issues, and then software issues. Those darn banners and scrolling images soaked up about a week all on their own, but figuring it out forced me to learn the new photograph touch-up program that I’m going to need while on tour, so I didn’t begrudge it. And when the pictures from the signings are taken, the webpage will go up in hours, not days.
Then there was the email issue, which I farted around with for two weeks in limbo while I paid someone else to handle it, until they finally gave up Monday and told me they couldn’t do it and to bring in both machines into the store where someone else “might” be able to shift the data in a few days. Right. Like that was going to happen. True, I wasn’t able to move most of it because five years of stuff is a lot to move (which is why I wanted to pay someone to do it) but I got by, and I’m on one machine now, not two, and things finally are starting to balance again.
I’ve not written a word in two weeks, and I’m dying here. Monday is going to be . . . interesting.
