...the Island Girl!

Bio: Hello and welcome to my island! I write that because: 1. I live on one; 2. I love islands! Any kind of island and I've spent time on several. I have many things to share because my interests are as wide and varied as the ocean. I am a FOOL-osopher with a crazy, impish sense of humor. LIfe is like a diamond; mistakes are just lessons; everybody is different. Given this bit of information, my purpose with this blog is the share my perspective on the many facets of life as I've experienced it and what I've learned on my journey. Instead of putting a lot of that here, just read on and learn about where I've been, what I've learned and how I've lived. There could be unsolicited advice given, a crazy story told, a whimsical musing on one of my many interests. There will be photos, recipes and maybe even some cool tips for making your own life a little easier. Who knows? I would like to share these things with others in hopes that my written word either brings them up out of a low, inspires them in some way or perhaps helps with some dilemma they are currently in. I just want to put a smile on everyone's face that I touch. Read on, if you are curious. Slow your roll and enjoy the ride.... PLEASE NOTE: In many of the comments I have been receiving, there have been requests on contact information. If you are REALLY exploring my site and reading what is here, you will notice that most of my posts have a Contact form embedded in them. That is the way you can directly get in touch with me. If you really wish to contact me, use those tools. That is what they are there for. Explore and enjoy! This site is always dynamic!

    • Hi! Hey thanks! I haven’t been able to post anything new. I’ve been mainly updating things. We’ve been going through an adjustment period, here. Hubby is newly retired and we’ve been going, going, going! I have learned, this past month, that I’ve got to just set aside ONE DAY just for my blog and photo work! Thanks for the shout out from Texas!

    • Thank you for the encouraging comments. I’ve been blogging for less than a year. The theme for the site is from WORDPRESS but I put it together with my own elements (photos), using their handy and fun free tutorial. I don’t get to post daily because I have so many interests. When I do post, I hope it conveys a lot of meaning and provides others with a smile.

  10. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility
    issues? A handful of my blog visitors have complained
    about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks
    great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

    Like

    • Thank you for your feedback. Yes, there are compatibility issues with IE. It has problems with many other sites. With all that is available out there like Chrome, I don’t know why folks still insist on using IE as their browser. There are no quick fixes for that other than to use a different browser for viewing. I don’t shoulder the problems of software issues from proprietary software giants like Microsoft. Their browser has just gotten too big and too patched up for its own good. Use Chrome. The the fix.

      • I didn’t really give those things serious consideration either. But then again, for me, things like this take time and careful tending to grow. I’m not looking for instantaneous results. It’s like gardening. Carefully tend it and consistency is key. Too much in society, these days, is based on instant gratification. I’m not about that. So, this is my blog and if, over time, it becomes profitable, cool! But, it IS good to keep those points on the back burner for consideration, every now and again. On the thought of Twitter and those other social media avenues, I still need to learn more about them. I don’t have any mobile devices at this time. It’s just me and the tower, right now. There is thought for having maybe a tablet of something like that in the future; just not yet.

  19. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
    editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m
    starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Well, lets’ see….I’m not a code person. The editor that WordPress has utilizes Visual and Text type editing. In the Text format, you can see the shortcodes and where they are with respect to the post. Visual is a very pretty look but neither rely on coding per se. It’s fairly WYSIWYG, like I am.

    • Since a majority of the feedback I get indicates no problems viewing my site, my guess is it is your browser. IE is notorious for having problems with sites like these. Try using Chrome for your browser if you can. It is very compatible.
