Look out neighborhood, here I come!
I submitted an application this morning for a space reservation at the upcoming Magnolia Festival. I decided to take the leap and get out in the community to raise awareness for Soldiers’ Angels and try to get people informed and involved.
I still need to secure a tent, but I’ve already gotten brochures, fliers, and a table/chairs set (thanks, Jeremy!). So if you’re in my neck of the woods in a couple of weeks, come on by!
Coming to terms
I’m slowly getting used to the new WordPress admin layout. I do really like the Media Library under Manage. I stopped hosting my images here on my blog a while back, and had wanted to go back and clean up the ones that are no longer being used. This will definitely come in handy for that! Plus, there’s a search option, so if I need to find a specific image that I know I’ve used before, that will also help.
Kudos to the WordPress team for that one …
For the past two nights I was unable to find the Blogroll section. I realized today that it’s because it’s been renamed to Links. Having a good night’s sleep helps a lot when trying to suss out new layouts! LOL! I also noticed a Feeds section, and if I’m hearing correctly, the upcoming features will be sweeeeeeet.
I’ve dropped Advanced Tag Entry and am giving Simple Tags a run. Jim’s been playing with it on his site, and I really like their “Auto tags old content” feature for older posts (like all of mine before the implementation of tagging!).
I’ve also deactivated WP-Cache in favor of WP Super Cache. I’ve been reading lots of good things about this plugin, and after following it for 6+ months, I figured it was time to give it a go (and I’m tired of WP-Cache screwing things up).
Jim also recommended WordPress.com Stats to me, so I’m trying it out as well.
So, if anything looks screwy … please let me know!
