New Blog Site

I am in the process of moving the blog to WordPress. All the posts up through the one before this have been exported from here to there. The new site can be found at Hexagon Alley. Same name, same posts, working on getting everyone invited to be a blog author.

Please do NOT post any more posts on this blog because I don't know how to transfer just a few of them. I hope to have everyone transferred as an author by the end of Monday. I know it will be a change for some of you, but if you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I've been using WordPress blogs for years, and they are so much easier in some ways.

To put a picture in the post, click Add Media. A screen comes up where you simply drag the picture file over and drop it. Then when it shows up with a little check on it, scroll down the right bar to find the position an size choices. Click insert when you have made your choices.

There are two options available, I believe. If a blue background comes up on your posts, you are in the new wordpress. You can click in the side bar on Classic Wordpress and go to the older system. There are advantages and disadvantages to each one, so play around with them and see which you like best. I don't know when classic might go away. They aren't making noises yet about deleting it and forcing everyone to the new way.

If you do not have a wordpress username, they will send you directions for making one and getting signed in. If you have problems, let me know. If you don't want to contribute any longer, simply don't answer the e-mail.

I hope to see you all on the new blog soon!
