i’ve been posting more lately because using wordpress is so much faster, easier, and more enjoyable than blogger. wish i had made the switch a long time ago!

i started a new section of my blog called BOOKSHELF (i also added the link to the right sidebar). as i say at the top of the page, i love books, and i like supporting books that i love. the page will be ever-changing, with new books that i’m enjoying added regularly.

  1. Interesting, I’d love to make the switch. I’ve been hating posting because blogger is so hard to use. Did you migrate everything yourself or did someone help you? Any tips?

  2. I tortured myself over which platform to use when I started this summer… your blog layout is certainly lovely. I’d love to know what the pitfalls were of making the switch… Lena – could you give us your opinion? Claudine

      • Hi GFG,
        Installing WordPress on your own server is actually not that difficult, and you can find great documentation at http://codex.wordpress.org/
        WordPress make is relatively easy to import existing blog content – just go to Tools>Import.
        To style your blog, find a theme online that you like, there are thousands of them, and lots of free ones. If you know CSS or have a friend that knows CSS, you can use a minimal theme and then customize the design to your liking. Hope that helps!

  4. Speaking of shelves, where do you find hardworking shelves such as those? I need some shelves that will work hard for me.

  5. i can’t remember where i got them, it was from an office supply website. try googling ‘heavy duty shelves’ or ‘industrial shelves’ and some should come up.
