Welcome!

By , January 26, 2008 1:13 pm

Welcome to Unplug Your Kids at its new home. I hope you like it and, most of all, I hope it loads faster!

There are a few differences from the old blog. I have combined the toy and book recommendations in with the main blog. I plan on trying to recommend one toy and one book per week. You can access my recommendations in the categories menu (“toy recommendations”and “book recommendations” – with subcategories under each heading).

One neat feature of WordPress, is that it allows for the creation of “Pages.” The top right sidebar shows the links to the pages I have created, including the Unplugged Toystores, Unplugged Bookstores, and a page about the weekly Unplugged Project for anyone who wants to know more about that.

Between having company all week and trying to get this set up, I haven’t had a lot of time to work out every detail. The internal links do not function properly yet, and there is something weird going on with the size of the categories drop-down menu, as well as some other details that need attending to.

As a die-hard perfectionist, I hate to put the blog online with any untidiness or disorganization, so I apologize. However, knowing me, I felt that if I didn’t make myself put it online now, it might be years before it was “perfect enough” in my mind.

I am eager to get on with the business of blogging …

So here it is!

PS. I plan on being around more now that the bulk of the work is done.

    Do you happen to know the URL of your feed as I subscribe to you via my email client’s built in RSS reader.

    Thanks!

    Hi Jenny,

    I am embarrassingly uninformed about this whole “feed” thing, but try this:

    http://www.unplugyourkids.com/feed/rss/

    (Please let me know if it works, thanks!)

    YAY! Let’s hear it for die-hard perfectionism! It looks great and YOU ROCK! (a perfectionist would say that, right?)

    I saw your change on Google Reader and of course had to hop over ! Congratulations to your new blog. How is WordPress with templates ? Do you have a lot of choice ? I love to fumble around with backgrounds and headers that’s why I change so often. I already have an account with WordPress but no blog. I had to take an account to get into the commun blog of the Cyber Cruisers.

  6. Congrats on the move to WordPress! Looks beautiful.

    YAY!! You’re back! New blog looks great! Just some nitpicky stuff to “clean up” (i.e. The Category drop down box is too long) but it looks really good!

    Congrats! :D
