Running a blog ain’t easy.

Running a blog ain’t easy.

For the past few weeks, perhaps even months, this site has been pretty much inaccessible. I have no idea what caused it in the first place but I was getting errors in my Jetpack plug-in after a WordPress update. It was driving me nuts! I poked Jetpack. I poked my webhost. I was like a human-sized porcupine to those brave folks. I deactivated all my plug-ins. I removed my browser extensions. Finally, just tonight, I figured it out, and with…

Playing around…

Playing around…

I was tired of the old theme and decided to change it up a bit. I hope you like it! Also haven’t been writing much, either. We’ve had a death in the family, illnesses, and accidents, including one involving me and our now-totaled truck. (I miss it!) The new SUV is okay; it’ll hold the whole family for a trip north when necessary. My plan is to try Camp NaNoWriMo again to get me writing anything. On alternating days, I’m…

I have lots of Kudos!

I have lots of Kudos!

With the premiere of The Incredibles 2, I’ve noticed a lot of notifications from An Archive of Our Own for my short story, “The Visit”. That particular archive allows guests or signed-in members to leave “kudos” on any story. This is the first time a short story of mine at AO3 has generated such interest and I’m chuffed about it! From the comments, it seems I’ve been able to satisfactorily wrap up a plot thread from the first movie: what…

A bit of site housekeeping news.

A bit of site housekeeping news.

After a bit of finagling, I’ve managed to make my domain name, tikatu.com, redirect here without, well, the redirect. So, no more starting out on my old homepage; this WordPress build is now the official homepage for my domain. If you have my site bookmarked, you might want to update that. Still working on my fanfic when I have the time and energy. I’m on Chapter 3, still, and need a bit more dialogue before I move on to Chapter…

Yes, a new theme.

Yes, a new theme.

I’m trying out this new theme as it seems 2014 (even with the added child theme) is used a LOT around the Web. There’s a lot I like about this one: it’s already optimized for various devices, the menus and widgets are hidden until they’re needed, and the custom header has that sort of muted overlay. On the other hand, I don’t like the fact that all the headers seem to be uppercase, despite my specifying “Capitalized” on the theme…

One step back

One step back

Well, not me taking one step back but fanfiction.net. They added new formatting tools to the user profiles and forum posting windows–including a “source code” button, but removed that one function from the actual document manager. (On the doc manager it was labeled “HTML”.) Do they really think we’re going to want the HTML versions of our forum posts? What were we going to do, post them at live journal? At WordPress? Facebook? Twitter? I can see the possibilities for…

I really wish I knew CSS!

I really wish I knew CSS!

Or actually thought before I acted. First, my primary menu disappeared again. I have no idea why; I’m working in a child theme and all but just like the last time, it went poof! I’ve had to rebuild the verdammt thing all over again! Maybe styling it would help? Might have to try that. Then I stupidly did a bulk action of delete spam to some comments that a non-functioning Askimet dumped in with the real comments. So now I…

More Updates

Still haven’t created that home page update thing, but I have uploaded Mosaic. Still needs a bit of tweaking, but I’ll get to that later. I’ve also recreated my main menu for the umpteenth time. I’m hoping that, since I’m working in a child theme, it will stick this time. Wish there was some way of saving a copy of the menu offline so I can just reload it when necessary. I’ll really need it when I start uploading the…

Updates

I’ll probably come up with a static updates page on the home page for such things but, for now, this will suffice. Today I finished putting up all the drabbles for my first drabble book, Coffee, Tea and More. If you have no idea what a drabble is, it’s a little story of just 100 words. Not an easy thing where every word has to count! These were written for the Livejournal community 30_beverages and each takes a new prompt…

Well, as much as I like Sunspot, it’s not working for me.

Well, as much as I like Sunspot, it’s not working for me.

My menus keep disappearing for no reason that I can fathom, and since I’m a ┬átotal php noob (and a near total CSS noob as well), I’m going to look for something that will stick when I set up the menus. It also may make a decision I’ve been contemplating: whether or not to publish all my fanfiction here or just link to my fanfiction.net account. Any suggestions?
