I am so happy to finally be able to blog again! As many of you may remember I kept hiring website designers that for reasons unknown, kept dropping off the face of the earth. Finally, in frustration I got the world's thickest Wordpress book and taught myself enough to get my site up and going. But things kept changing and some plug ins would simply stop working. My blog wasn't letting me add the fonts I wanted. More and more issues kept creeping up. In January, when we ran an ad for one of our shows, a digital code was added to our website to drive traffic. Not realizing the power of Spambots . . . I hadn't even known what they were before this . . . this code now opened the world to these robots to place spam on my page. Before we finally switched over to this new site I had . . . get this (almost worthy of a drum roll!) 30,000 spam comments waiting to get on my blog posts!! It was so incredibly frustrating. Finally, we went to our team of amazing experts (Katie, Kelly, Melissa and Casey) and had them recreate things. There were certain things I wanted to remain. I am abnormally attached to my turquoise barnwood. I needed my pig logo. I wanted a similar look and feel to my old page . . . but cleaner and easier to use. They listened. They made changes that I wanted. And they created "captchas" . . . which is where you have to click a button declaring that you are not a robot . . . see apparently Spambots don't have fingers . . . or at least not coordinated fingers . . . so they can't click buttons. So today I am finally able to blog. So many changes and exciting things happening here . . . but for today I just want to say "I am back and I am glad you are here, visiting my page." And I want to say I am grateful. For something so simple as being able to blog again. The evil Spambots have been conquered! Life is good!
