There are times I really hate it when something changes. For instance not to long ago Zazzle made some big changes that required me to re-create a ton of little icons for the Variety Store. I am still a long way from being done with that one.
Why can’t they just leave well enough alone and stick to normal?
I’m sure you noticed that I changed the way the blog looks. It’s old normal self was getting boring to look at day after day. It really needed a change. And WP makes some changes very easy; just a few clicks of a button and a quick upload of some newly created icons and you’re done.
Nice. I like this new normal much better. At least for now.
Yesterday I logged into KKHPhotos.com with the intention of uploading one simple image. Instead of the normal page I usually see there was a big ol’ pop-up telling me about some updates.
Great. More change.
At first I wasn’t going to do anything about it. I was just going to stick to the same ol’ same ol’ normal stuff.
Then I got to looking at some examples of what other’s had done with the new updates.
Ok; that’s pretty cool!
I spent the rest of the day changing the way my photography site looks. The menu is different, the home page is different, there’s a new full screen slideshow, the gallery pages look fresh, and the individual photo pages are even better. Somehow it all seems a bit less cluttered now. [I never did get that image uploaded.]
Great! More change! This one I like.
