Maintenance Already!

UPDATE:  06/07/2023:  Still looking but getting frustrated. I realize content is more important than looks - but in this instance I think that continuity in the layout is almost as important as the content itself - because otherwise some of the blog, as I was hoping to do it, won't make a lot of sense.  So a tad grumpy and frustrated - I've not given up yet - just as I said, still taking awhile to wade through (also trying to do it for little or zero money makes it more time consuming too - lol!) it all.  And I'll keep updating on my progress as well.

 UPDATE 05/01/2023:  Looking for proper site to host what I hope will be a "simple" web site.  May take awhile - at the longest 3 mos. - and if sooner you'll know right away because I'll post it here :).  Sorry for the delays.

 Hey all,

After almost 20 years of HTML and CSS, I really wanted a no fuss, no muss sort of setup for this blog.  One that all I really had to do was write up my posts and add images here and there.  Of course what I didn't think through is how limited I might be in terms of how the site behaved and looked.  Something as simple, for example, as stickying a post to the main page - not possible in this particular template.  Having a header graphic AND text, also not easily doable with a pre-designed layout.  I mean, yes, technically I can edit those things - but if you look at the code in place to provide those "stop and drop" templates like this one here on blogger, well let's just say I'd be better off learning to code then trying to edit THAT.

So what that means is I'm going to have to either purchase a simple website on a host somewhere or try to find another template/blog host that suits what I'm trying to do with this blog.  Hang in there with me - once I figure that all out, I'll post a notice here of any changes.  That does mean for a few days, not much new content until I get that all sorted out.

 Thanks for being patient with me! (Assuming you are - lol!)


  1. If you're looking for a place to host a new site, I recommend neocities and for templates I would recommend sadglr's site templates, but you can find some pretty useful temps looking up "neocities site templates". Neocities is free but there's a pro version for $5/monthly that's available if you feel like you need more space

  2. Hi Dee, thank you for the trip down memory lane. I look forward to your future updates. I actually Googled WW today as there's a game being developed at the moment that I am waiting to be released, which remind me of WW. I hope this game can fill the void WW left lol. Take care.

  3. Thanks so much for stopping by, taking the time to leave a comment and for the advice. It's nice to see there are still people who remember Whuddle World besides myself. LOL!
