I’ve always prided myself in being able to adapt and change as needed. With the new website there are certainly a lot of things I like better but in my head I’m lamenting some of the things I could do on the old blog or website.
Now in reality the new site is wonderful. There are definitely more good things than bad but at the same time, I’m missing some features. In my head I’m grumbling about it and then stop myself as I realize I sound like those people who grumble about making changes.
I’m flexible – I swear this is true. I like trying new things, exploring new options. But this change has been a little difficult. I’m pretty sure my blog I had for around eight to ten years but still when I was using it, I grumbled about things I couldn’t do – these things I can now do with my new blog / website.
I’m not sure if it’s the length of time I had the blog or how busy I’ve been or the fact that I’m getting older but part of me is being a bit grumpy. It might be because I’m also dealing with a new to me computer. I loved my old computer and the new one is taking a bit to get used to. Doesn’t matter really. All of this leads to me telling myself about the things I really love about the new web site – like that everything is in one place and it has become one stop shopping for me. If I have a new publication I come here where I can post it as being available and where as well as writing a blog post about it. It’s all in one spot.
Posting pictures is easier in a lot of ways. Not only do I have a easy access for posting them but I have a place where all the pictures I’ve used are stored. This means if I’ve already used in – I don’t have to go looking for it again, I can simply look in the catalog of already used pictures.
These and a whole lot more features are the reason I changed over to the new website. I am going to keep reminding myself that for the next month or so things may be annoying with me having to figure out how to do stuff but really there’s more good than annoying. I guess even I can be a bit of a curmudgeon when it comes to change. However, the curmudgeon in me is going to get a smack because I like the new site and I like the convenience more than I dislike features I can no longer do. Basically the good far far outweighs the bad.
