The New JS

I am copying and pasting a post I made to whatever that place is called - KCL. I have not decided yet. I have become so nicely comfortable with THIS place, but - Westy offered to put up my old template from JS. Very tempting.

Anyway, on with the show.

My complaints with this site.

I HATE the green headers, good Lord. Might as well put a row of frogs up there, it's totally ugly.

It's totally foreign. So I'm a blog illiterate, I make no claims of computer literacy. Therefore, I am the perfect person to identify for blogging complaints in terms of use. It takes me a while to figure out where everything is and how to use it. I'm pretty comfortable with Blogspot - and here we go - an apparent ex-JS favorite site pops up.

Okay, you can tell me it's been here a while, nice. So has Swine Flu and I don't see anyone clamoring to acquire that - or the kid that died of Bubonic Plague recently.

I am not equating this blog host with anything negative, I've just been thrust around from site to site after JS disappeared and I have had enough. The ONLY reason I would consider moving here is because of all the ex JS'ers that are here, if that weren't true, I wouldn't even know of this site.

So I'm whining. It's no pity party. It just takes so long to figure out a new site, how to navigate it and get comfortable with it..........

I'm done.

For today, anyway.

I have spent the entire weekend working outside and I have loved every minute of it. So much so that the weekend disappeared far to quickly. And I loved it so much that I have decided to try another Craigslist startup: property maintenance.

I'm good at it. I love it. It isn't a chore for me. I could take on a house or 2 and make some extra income. As I have stated numerous times before, I am always looking for ways to increase my income, especially after feeling the effects of fully 2 hour reductions in less than 6 months.

Speaking of extra income, one of my clients recommended me to one of his relatives. I'm referring to dog-watching. This person called me today. They want to bring their dog over and have a pet meeting. I'm all for it. ANYTHING to make some extra money right now.

In fact, I'm all over this property maintenance stuff, I am posting an ad tonight and see where it might go.

I'm done for the weekend - and I am posting this post on 2 sites. One will figure out the other. If that makes sense, welcome to the looney bin!

G'nite and have a great week!

I don't like the green either, or learning a new post editor. But I'll hang out from time to time - everybody's there! Then again, I have new readers here.

Good luck with property maintenance - sounds like a great way to supplement your income!

what's wrong with green? the original was orange and THAT was horrid! In fact, I think I was the one who suggest green to Matt.

Be patient and give the site a chance. To change the layout I need your password... pm it to me at KCL (no messages possibilities here....)

Amen sister! And thanks!
Dorrie: That particular shade of green is absolutely ugly. Reminds of material that comes out of the nose when you have a cold. There a many shades of green floating around this earth - I happen to like green - but that one needs to go by the wayside!
I will pm it to you if I can figure out HOW to pm over there! lol!

I have an absolutely horrible headache. But I'll get to that in  a moment. After discussing today with "people in the know", ...
