The Matron was feeling pretty darn good about her aging self. Inspired by Mrs. G to believe that hard work and good luck do sometimes happen at the same time to the same person, she bought a domain name:
So she lined up that pretty little purchase with a Wordpress blog. While she was at it, she picked up another little .com as a suffix and attached it to her very fine name: the Matron and her very own real-self professional writing blog. Now she had two more occupations to add to the daily to-do list, but no matter. This was the fun stuff, the things that made her happy.
Until Saturday night around midnight when after four hours of unsuccessfully attempting to move her BlogHer ads to her Wordpress site she googled: "can you put BlogHer ads on a Wordpress site?"
It turns out that Wordpress is one of those touchy-feeling, anti-capitalist set-ups much like her own psyche. Rumor has it that ads might be allowed and that all will someday be good with Blogger but then again, there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, remember?
This might all happen someday but in the interim, she's sticking it out a while with blogger and doing some more thorough R&D. That's Research and Development, a capitalist term with which she is now becoming familiar.
Nobody likes to lose those big fat $30 checks from BlogHer!
So we'll have to settle here for pedestrian pictures and background to accompany the snappy prose. To entertain herself she's going to change her bloggy scenery every couple of days, just to say 'so there' to the internet. Because that's helpful.
