Galloping towards one Million.

May 23, 2007

Yesterday, there were 922468  blogs on WordPress.com, today, as I visit, there are 997688.

At the rate they are flying off the site, the one millionth will be activated in, say, a couple of hours or so. Certainly today, New Zealand today, or my name’s not…um…forget that bit.

So….do we get a prize for scoring number 1,000,000? Huh?

About about.

May 14, 2007

I finally decided to fill in the “About” page on this blog. The words flowed OK, but where the hell has the thing gone? I see no “About”, although it appears as an editable page on the dashboard. The process of loading a page and making it visible to a blaudience seems to be different from that of writing a mere entry. So as a temporary measure, I made a text box, which natively has a weeny-tiny font text in it, to act as a substitute.
I did switch from Live Journal because I wanted more of a challenge, didn’t I?

*stands looking up at steep curve*

[Edit] OK, I found the answer. A short(ish) search in the help section revealed that to display “About” as a page, you have to drag the Pages widget to the sidebar.

*blushes like a noob*

Quite a ‘duh’ really.  But I’ll leave it here, just in case some other poor sod needs it.
