Back home

I wasn’t happy with the new theme so I have reverted to the old one. Now I have to check if I have lost anything. I’m going to have another go at the photos so there may be one on here from the Southern Book Show. No, it still won’t load but here’s a nice picture instead. I found it when I was looking for book covers but it’s the wrong shape.pexels-photo-800721.jpeg

New Theme

Somebody said if I change the theme I might be able to load my photos. OK. I’ve done that but it still won’t work.

I’d be glad to hear if you all like the new theme. if not, I’ll go back to the old one. I’m a bit fed up with the computer as it has a will of its own at present. Just when I was getting used to putting pictures on it stops allowing it! Now I have to find out if the problem is wordpress or the photos. It even won’t load ones it did before! Is this Windows 10’s fault?

I’m going to try again now, with a photo I have loaded before: That worked. New one didn’t.

Updating without me!

Windows 10 has been playing with my computer ( or my security people) and I have lost a lot of Google icons and gained a portrait that I didn’t ask for. Also, it has put me on skype and I didn’t ask for that either. What’s going on?

I feel I am not in control of this machine any more. ( Not that I ever was)

The security lot say they have taken away some apps that I don’t use, but I never have used apps as I don’t use a smartphone except when I’m abroad.

Now I have had to add files to my bookmark list so that I can find them quickly instead of just clicking on them where they used to be under the Google picture.

The squares have gone down from 8 to 4.

I keep getting asked to restart every time I log on.It’s all very odd.

Muddled thinking

See what a dental appointment did to me! ‘A picture tells a thousand words ‘ does it? Not when you can’t tell the difference between a paperclip and a chain. Of course I have been using a paperclip to attach things. It was the chain I hadn’t found a use for. Now I know it means ‘links’ I’ll have to experiment some more.

Yesterday was such a gloomy day and I am terrified of the dentist. No reason, she’s very sweet but I have had bad experiences in the past. Anyway, I was due for a filling in the afternoon and I should have kept away from the computer until it was all over. Now it is, and it didn’t hurt a bit, I can get back to writing and perhaps learn more as I go along.

I did ‘share’ with twitter for a while but it was too personal so I stopped.What I need to do is find some fellow writers and eager readers who might like some of what I write.The people I follow are such an inspiration and I feel I can’t be as interesting but I’ll keep trying.bookwormclipart

Experimenting

You must think I’m dumb. I have just noticed the paperclip on the top menu and supposes it makes a link. Nobody told me. Now to find out how it works. I guess you can link internally or externally. Goodreads already have my blog linked and one of my websites links to Amazon. I have just listened to Hugh about ‘Press this.’ It all makes me feel so ignorant. Someone did ask how to get my books and asked for a link but I didn’t know what to tell them. As soon as the next book is ready for publication I’ll delve further. Meantime, I’m in the zone, so forgive me. I’m writing!
