The theme will have to do for now. Tried at least 6 today and they all had one thing I couldn’t get to work the way I wanted or they were just wonky. One even froze my site and I had to go into my hosting to get rid of it. Back to a good WordPress theme from a couple of years back. It will serve my purposes for 2018 or at least the first part of it. I like the vertical image. Will be rotating those in and out as the spirit moves
The rabbit hole for me always (at least 99% of the time) is about how it looks. That visual artist thing cannot rest until it meets what I’ve got in my head. Unfortunately theme developers don’t make it easy to edit. I know how to get into the code and muck around (learned that through a few previous trips down the rabbit hole) but it takes so much time and should be so much simpler.
All I really want to do is write and see where it takes me. The real question is what work will I retire into? It needs to meet my financial needs without consuming my life. There are just too many things to be doing and I’m ready to have some fun.
Update: I couldn’t let it go and in the process found a plugin that solves all my visual woes. If you want to customize your website, check this out.
