Welcome to The New Three Plus Two!
February 19, 2014|Posted in: Uncategorized
Hello! If you’re reading this through a feed reader (and I hope that all your feeds have been moved successfully), you might want to click through to see the new home of Three Plus Two. I’ve tried to make it a little easier on your eyes by reducing some of the visual clutter. Posts are excerpted in a list on the home and categories pages allowing you to navigate straight to the post you want to read instead of having to scroll through full posts on your way to what you want. (If posts are excerpted in your feeds, though, let me know! I want the feeds to be the same as they’ve always been.) I tried out a number of different layouts and this one was the one that didn’t make me tense up too much. Of course, I just got my first pair of bifocals last week (mainly for reading) so maybe I’m a little more sensitive to what’s on my screen than most people! But I hope you find it easy to navigate, too.
There are still a few kinks to work out. As it happens, Bluehost gave me a refund because they said they wouldn’t be able to transfer any of the photos from my Typepad blog. I’m taking a breather before I attempt that… but it will happen, one way or another. I’m also still working on the navigation bar at the top of the page, so expect some changes up there. Once I get the Typepad posts moved over, there will be more pages for you to visit. And there are a couple of bugs I’m trying to sort out… probably this is just more of the figuring-out-self-hosted-Wordpress learning curve.
And now I’m eager to write some new posts! I’ve been following along with Jen’s Living Page book discussion, and recently I pulled out our languishing nature notebooks and set them up on a shelf so we could actually start using them again. I have some more learning-in-review to post, and a long overdue review of Simply Classical by Cheryl Swope. And… spring is coming! We had our first warm-up of the new season, the overwintered spinach looks green and ready to start growing again, and Andy got out into the garden and pulled all the winter weeds.
So have a look around and let me know what you think!
