Slice of Life ‘Memories of Dad‘ is in the next post.
A number of bloggy friends have asked what I think of WordPress thus far. After experimenting for about 3 weeks here at WordPress, there are features I really like and only a few frustrations … the biggest being the inability to adjust the type & size of the font easily.
I suppose I wouldn’t feel annoyed if I hadn’t become accustomed to changing the font frequently on my Blogger sites … but I can’t help but wonder why this feature isn’t readily available with a button & drop down menu, and methinks I’ll ask the question of customer support soon.
I suspect others must have inquired and there’s probably a reason, and I do know enough about HTML coding to change the size & type of the font that way … doing it that way just takes longer.
In the scheme of things it’s a minor inconvenience … but it’s one that bugs me all the same. I do like the changes to the Dashboard here. The previous one was confusing, irritatingly difficult to navigate and annoyingly S L O W!

I answered the questions on December 3rd but have already posted on all 3 blogs & have created 3 posts for Thursday already ... so I figure I'd keep it in my drafts folder for a day when the muse abandons me ... or maybe I'll just schedule it for Morning Musings on December 8th because then my answer to #8 will be accurate. Yup ... that's the ticket!
I'm not going to tag anyone, but I invite all who wish to participate to play along ... and if you do, please leave a comment and/or link so I can visit ;--)
