I have a complete blog post prepared for you this week. It has 33 photos, some of which are very beautiful, and it has lots of fun commentary too.
However, a few days ago I upgraded WordPress to the latest version. I thought nothing of it because they toss out upgrades every month or so and you just keep upgrading along.
Unfortunately, just now when I sat down to do my zip-zap lightning-fast-fingers stuff I’ve done in WordPress for the last 7 years to compile my text and photos into a blog post, I discovered that the interface is completely unrecognizable. So the publication of this cool blog post about Castle Hot Springs and Lake Pleasant is going to be delayed.
Ironically, earlier today I was joking with Mark that a day may come where my blog fades into oblivion because the changes in technology leave it behind.
I made the joke in the context of thinking about ways to preserve our precious memories that have been so carefully written and presented online so that some curious descendant decades from now could get a whiff of what our lives were like. I believed I’d come up with a way I could one day print out the thousands and thousands of 8.5 x 11 pages that it would consume and have those pages be nicely formatted so they could be archived in notebooks.
All I can say is be careful what you joke about!
I think I know what needs to be done and have found some good info here. But I’d rather tackle this with fresh eyes and a clear mind over a cup of coffee in the morning!
Here’s the first photo I had planned to use, but it’s not sized or positioned right… sigh.
