Lost a week recently. It was all daughter Kate’s fault.
My decade-old website was just sitting there, designed in a program no longer even recognized by servers, so barely functioning.
She suggested it was time for the cowgirl to whip a new, interactive home page into shape.
Of course, that meant this technologically-challenged 60-year-old had to learn a few new tricks. So I downloaded Adobe Muse, which, if you are used to InDesign, is relatively easy to teach yourself through Muse’s video tutorials.
When I finally finished the web design, though, like my old website, my host provider proved non-responsive.
I wanted immediate gratification in uploading my new site. By the third day, my patience evaporated.
So much so that I abandoned my original domain name and jumped ship to ipage.com. Ipage not only responds but is extremely inexpensive.
Anyway, the cowgirl is now encamped at a new home – postcardssanantonio – with much better links back to this blog.
Thanks, Kate. The girl truly was in need of new duds.
Oh, and “Postcards” even tweets now @postcardsfromsa.

Love the new website, Gayle. Thanks to Kate for prompting the cowgirl’s new makeover!
There’s no place to comment on the new website. 😦
I don’t tweet and I don’t twitter,
Can I just stay over here and be your old website sitter?
Sarah – The blog is where you want to be for chatting back. The website will be fairly static. The verbose posts here will continue to ramble far and wide.
