That’s What Friends Are For

Some of you may recall that last week, I posted Some Days, I Just Hate WordPress, Like Today. 

I was voicing my disappointment regarding the abrupt change in the WP publishing platform and while I will assume there were announcements and maybe even instructions on how to navigate the new platform, they were lost on me.

Several readers chimed in and shared my sentiments….we were all lamenting, but not doing anything to correct the situation. There was one reader/blogger who took the time to research the situation, actually talked to someone at WP, and shared with us how to use our beloved,  classic editor.

Thanks to Margie, over at Amusives, The Lighter Side of Life, you are reading this today and able to listen to the song I found. A live performance by the late, great Charlie Daniels. It is a tune I learned to play while in college and recall sitting around with a few guys over in Gettysburg, playing this song over and over, until we got it right.

Those of us who try to leave comments on WP sites also know how frustrating and time consuming it can be…while still not leaving a comment. This blog gets sent to my FB, Twiter, Tumbler, and Linkedin pages, so those are other options.

Here is the background on The Legend of Wooley Swamp.

The “CDB” back before Charlie’s beard was gray.

Living between Aiken & Charleston,, South Carolina, USA, I like to share what I am looking at, thinking about or listening to. I refer to this as the view out my window. Thanks for stopping by.

    Saw CDB at the old municipal auditorium in Augusta in maybe 1974? A really good band. The most interesting thing about the show was the opening act – Fanny – an all girl rock & roll band . They were outstanding.

  3. I always prefer a good song to editing with the block head editor.

    Thank you for the thank you! I cannot find where WP made any announcements or gave instructions. I think, like many things in life, absence of particular information forces people into doing something that they wouldn’t do (or think) if they knew the missing part.
