My web hosts for this site offered me the chance to migrate to a new platform, from Movable Type to WordPress.  I said yes, go ahead.  The result is what you see now, a big improvement, I think. The layout and design is so much more versatile. It explains why I have been absent for a while.

Best to not operate this site on a Mac Safari browser, as problems arise when You Tubing a video. I use Firefox.

There has been a problem which is to do with what is called SEO (Search Engine Optimization).  I don’t want to lose the positions in Google, for example, which have been in prominent places for a long time now. But one also needs to avoid any “404s” showing up, in other words a dead link.  This has meant the arduous task of tagging old entries with the “301” tag, which means that the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) is redirected to a different permanent address on a different server.

As well, there has been a problem getting the old internal and external links to work, especially the pictures.  Pictures and videos are all important these days. Readers/subscribers have become more sophisticated, and expect all the bells and whistles to be available.  So we’re working on it.

Bear with me.  I’m no expert, and this is all a learning experience for me too. But I want to get my story out in the best way possible.

The next stop will be an E-Book.
