131. Sunday Ramblings

Have I ever mentioned the hate I have for HTML coding? I think I might have, but if I haven't, then let me state how much I hate HTML here now. I don't mind links and small things like that, but when you have to go digging through a whole website worth of HTML to edit and add coding to links and all you have is the HTML, my mind and my eyes go crazy. I just spent some time making some small changes to my blog sidebar and my website. Updating links and other information. What should only take someone minutes took me an hour for some reason, and now my brain is playing tired.

I also wrote an article today on some helpful free ware for writers. Writing the article is what led me to this journey into HTML hell, as I call it. I wanted to add the article to my sidebar, its there now if you're interested by the way, and then I saw some other things I could fix and add up. I also added a link you can syndicate my articles on blogcritics with. I know some of you use feed readers, and I didn't even know I had a feed someone could use for my articles on that site until last night.

Speaking of last night, I wrote up both my reviews and turned them in. I will let you know when both those reviews are up. I review for two different sites now, so I had an assignment due for each. Guilty Pleasures for over at Divas, and Latigo for Erotic Romance Reviews for Women. Now that both my assigned readings are done, I'm looking at my TBR pile, and trying to figure out what to read next. I'll decide later. Last night, I also watched Cellular, starring Kim Basinger and Chris Evans. I'd heard some negative reviews about the movie, but nothing else was on, so I decided to give it a shot. It really wasn't a bad movie. Better than some of the other movies I've seen where a phone played part. Definitely some action to it, and it kept me entertained for the ninety minutes it was on. I'd recommend it.

Yesterday, I joined up over at Monica's Writer's Write course at Writers Rooms. It's not really a course, but a way for a small group of people to help encourage either to be more productive with their writing. I participate in a few challenges on different message boards, but I think this will be a bit different. I'm interested in the critique part of it too. I'm wondering how things will all work out. With writing the reviews last night, I didn't get anything done fiction wise, but that will change tonight I'm sure. The reviews needed to be done, and they are.

Have a great night everyone!

I have a love/hate relationship with HTML. I love messing with my website...it drives me nuts sometimes. I thought I'd go jump off a cliff getting Wordpress to work how I wanted it to...

I love playing with it, but sometimes it justdoesn't play nicely.

Gina, I know what you mean about the coding, and as I checked out your nice informative sidebar, I can understand your frustration! LOL! You have loads of info there, way to go! =D

Gina said...

Thanks, Kelly! There is so much on there sometimes its hard to get it all looking right.

Boy, do I hear you on the html coding. But what makes my head really spin is the CSS. I'd like to just scream, "GAAAHHH" whenever I try to mess with it. :)

Gina said...

CSS is even worse! I know!

Thanks, Suzanne!
