This weekend I’ve been having a wonderful time with WordPress, adding here, changing there, reading up on this, that and the other.
I’ve even started up a brand new blog, something that I’ve been contemplating doing for most of this year. Well, yesterday, I finally had all of the details worked out and began to put my thoughts into action.
The end result, (even though this is just the beginning!) is “A Sense of Spirit”. I do hope you will take a look at what I’ve got there so far.
It may or may not be your cup of tea and it can’t hurt to take a look, now can it?
I really like the design and colours in my new website. It feels right for what it is, and for what it is to become, with time.
WordPress is a fantastic site for setting up blogs, both free and self-hosted. I’ve finally got my head around the different WordPress sites too ~
WordPress.com is where you set up a free blog, such as “asenseofspirit. wordpress.com”, which is hosted by WordPress and has the word WordPress in the web address, and…
WordPress.org is for the self-hosted blog sites, (where you choose your own domain name and it doesn’t include the word WordPress) an example of where you are now, here at www.HomeLifeOnline.com
There has been many a time when I have been completely stumped by WordPress’s instructions, on how to set all of the aspects of a blog in place. They can, at times, be just downright vague with their information! Still and all, WordPress is my first choice for setting up a blog.
Don’t forget to have a look around at “A Sense of Spirit” and let me know what you think.
Today’s photo credit goes to “Yours Truly”. It was taken many years ago, in our back garden, when we lived in Sydney and is my first two babies. It is one of my favourite photos of them and I have used it today, for my first photo on my first post, at “A Sense of Spirit”.

Another blog, Joanne! Where will you find the time? Good luck with it.
I was toying with changing to WordPress because I really like that banner option up the top, but i don’t really want to mess with something that’s not broken. And, if I changed could I drag all my Followers with me?
Can you use your own photo for the banner up top? I really like the photo in A Sense of Spirit too.
I also really like how you can display the latest postings of people who comment; not sure if you can do that in blogger.
Yes, another blog Josie, because I’ve been itching to write on the subject of spiritual matters, and somehow Home Life Online doesn’t seem quite the right title for such talk! Lol.
Do you remember “Bill” from a previous post? http://nkpx3.th8.us We had quite a bit of discussion about him on NaBloPoMo at the time. I’m having a word with him about the questions you have asked, as he is quite the wizz with computers, too! I’ll let you know when we have something sorted out, as I’m sure he can help you with your blog set up questions, just as he has often helped me. 🙂
You can use your own photos for a header with some themes on WordPress. My header at A Sense of Spirit is a photo I took in my garden last year.
I’m off to visit your new blog. How exciting! 🙂
Thank you Robin! 🙂
