Spring Spirit 2016 Summaries (1)

I don’t usually reblog, but making an exception for the very first blog post of the ACORN from SCBWI California North/Central Region.

If you couldn’t make it to Spring Spirit this year you missed a lot—like Bruce Hale singing to us (really). Or maybe you were there but missed a few sessions because you couldn’t be in two or three places at once. (And if you CAN be in two or three places at once, call me, I have questions.) Anyway, don’t fret! We’ve got you covered. Our volunteers have written lots of summaries for your notes, or to give you a few more reasons to make sure you get there in 2017!

The Forgotten Property

When last I wrote here, I was moving from my BlogSpot blog. I thought, maybe WordPress had a cyberspace for my new home. So I checked it out. It was OK, but not what I really wanted in a website or blog, so I moved on. And forgot about this little WordPress spot I had created. Until I was notified that I had a new follower.

Now, I’m always thrilled to be followed. Obviously, I written something you like and want to read more. But I don’t want my followers to get lost at my rundown forgotten websites, so this is me waving you over to my new sight — *WAVE *WAVE.

Come over to lexicalcreations.weebly.com. That’s my primary residence.

OK, I do use my WordPress account to follow others and connect, so don’t think I hate this site or anything. I don’t. I just found a website host that I like better. And I can only maintain one cyber house at a time. Sorry folks I’m only one writer.

The Cyber Move

All my life, I haven’t stayed in one place for very long. Looks my cyberhomes are no exception. I was fine with my blogspot blog, but kept getting these annoying error messages. And I kept hearing about how great WordPress is. Well, maybe it’s time to move.

<Strong> Problems with Moving </Strong>

1. Finding the Right New Home: The free stuff on WordPress seems much more limited than Blogspot, and I know I’m not ready to upgrade. So is WordPress right for me, or should I keep looking?

2. Packing: What do I take with me to the new blog and what do I leave behind?

3. Notifying: I have Facebook, Twitter, and email followers, all different. I hope I don’t forget anyone when I announce the big Move!
