Announcement 1

Welcome to the first announcement post for Words Art Design, dear reader. โค

Guess what? It has been a little more than one year since I started the site. When I first created my page, I thought it would become nothing more than a little hobby space I’d never have time for, what with all the craziness going on in my life.

Although that’s been somewhat true, I’ve been pleasantly much more active than I could have ever hoped for. I’ve really found this page to be my refuge, writing as much as I can despite everything.

A small smile here. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, good news! One year down and hopefully much more material to come.ย I’ve created a simple banner for any future announcements (shown above), so be on the lookout. ๐Ÿ™‚

So now, here is the bad news, har har.

I try to minimize administration, but inevitably maintaining a site takes quite a bit of work. Quite a bit more than I expected actually, if I’m being honest. As much as I tried to get to the art of the matter this last year, the setup of the site and technical issues took as much of 70% of my time here.

In particular, a recent June 2017 bug in the WordPress gallery widget completely wiped my photography and food galleries, which were unrecoverable. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Quite a bit of a setback, and there is one food post that I lost images for which I do not have backups. I have updated that post with a technology error note, but all other posts should be okay. However, please note that for my galleries, you may see broken links galore.

Please be aware I am working on restoring these galleries with my backups, and they should be up sometime soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

That being said, more good news!

I’ve finally revamped all categories and the front page. I have also gotten most of the technical overhead on the site done. Not bad for a writer, so I can’t complain. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thus, time needed for web maintenance should decrease greatly in the future.

I’ve finally got the foundation of the site down, and now, I can build upon it. โค

Until next time.
