I’ve been at this blogging lark for a few months now and really haven’t had a huge amount of time in which to explore the ins and outs of WordPress’ bells and whistles.
Our lovely blogpal Jodi Stone posted about the things she had learnt over the last year and one of them was about Categories – click here to view the post. This was incredibly useful to me because I’ve always found myself a bit bewildered and confused when it came to the point of Categories versus Tags and, indeed, what these things were in the first place. I like to think that I’m no idiot, but I really couldn’t fully understand the explanations given by WordPress. Perhaps I’m not so much an idiot as inexperienced in this medium – I seem to have lolloped rather than hurtled into the 21st Century (I still have a flip phone, which is SOOOOO uncool according to my 16 year old godson who goes through iPhones as though they were tissues). Anyway, I left Jodi with the question as to the differences between Categories and Tags, and she fired an immediate response… impressive! I then found a bit more help (the first WordPress help which I actually understood because it gave a simple example) here. Now that I ‘get it’ (sort of), I’ve gone through and Categorised/tagged all my posts. I’m feeling very smart, thanks to Jodi and WordPress.
I have been thinking a lot about the blogs that I enjoy reading and wondering what it is that I like about them. Some of them capture my attention through a dry sense of humour, others use the English language so beautifully, others have the most wonderful images, and many have helpful and interesting content. None of these are mutually exclusive reasons as several blogs achieve all of the above. As a blog, Fabulous Flo aspires to be like many of the blogs I read. I just find that I’m a little lazy and once I’ve written a post I want to get it up there,
perhaps not taking enough time or care to make sure that I’ve found just the right phrase, or (urgh) not even just proof reading a post thoroughly enough. I frequently find myself correcting small typos after a post is published. I think the most annoying thing for me is that I ‘could do better’. I am haunted by old school reports. I will endeavour to ‘do better’ but I refuse to be one of the blogs that tries too hard to be popular. Humbug. So, to those of you I follow and read obsessively, thank you for your great example. I learn a lot from you. And one day I might even put what I’ve learned into practice.
And so (finally) to the subject of the blog. Miss Fabulous and her adventures this week.
It’s been an important week with the release of the shaved one. Flo has been quite excited to get a clean break at a lick of Fergus without the barrier in the way. Fergus really doesn’t mind and has tolerated it rather well; she’s also enjoying the attention. It does get a bit much though, even for a patient, attention-seeking cat. I think Flo is especially pleased that she can now get her head into Fergus’ open cage (where the litter tray, food and water remain) and drink all the water. She’d eat the food too if she didn’t know better, or I wasn’t always in the room
foiling her cunning plan accompanying her. Mwahahahahaha!
