Lesson 1: Sometimes the only way to begin is to jump in.

I was debating adding a blog to my long standing website. Do I have the know-how, the discipline, do I have anything to say on a regular basis?

As with so many things in life, I could spend a lifetime researching, but in the end it comes down to jumping in and seeing where the river flows.

So I jumped in and installed WordPress, and deleted my entire existing site! Immediately my mind was awash with visions of a marathon stint of website rebuilding that would take precious months out of my schedule.

After the initial flood of dread swept through me, I calmed down as I realized I had safety devices and could get back to shore. I uninstalled, restored and re-uploaded the site from Dreamweaver, created a SEPARATE DIRECTORY for the blog, and then reinstalled WordPress.

Lesson 1 learned.

Next, along with the long list of overdue updates to One Life Fine Art, will be to integrate the blog and the site.

Then we will see where the river goes.
