Upgrading My House of Cards
40on2 is still running on the old version of Blogger and it seems like it's time to upgrade to the new, modular version of Blogger that supposedly makes it easier to customize the blog. If I was smart I'd buy my own domain and switch to WordPress but I tried that once and it didn't go well. WordPress blogging software is very powerful, assuming you can figure out the code which is explained to non-geek users even more poorly than Blogger code. The only language I know is English, not HTML or CSS or whatever cryptic nonsense creates the pages you see so if 40on2 looks a bit more odd than usual it's just me trying to make the new version look like the old version using the new software. No doubt I'll end up pulling out what's left of my hair. If it wasn't 900° outside I'd just go for a ride.
