New New Blog

Last Try at an Art Blog

Be yourself; Everyone else is already taken.

— Oscar Wilde.

So this is my newest attempt at an art blog/website. I’m starting to get a little freaked out at how hard this is turning out. It’s really gotten crazy how many tries this is taking. My last blog was a WordPress blog hosted on Yahoo Small Business. I picked them just because I had purchased my domain name from them years ago. Big mistake! I liked the WordPress interface, but the site itself was super glitchy. It kept crashing. And the worst thing about a WordPress site crash, is that it effects everything including the administrator’s control panel. Which means when the site crashed, I wouldn’t be able to get at the controls to fix it. I would have to contact Yahoo customer service, and have them do it. I ended up calling them at least five times in a two month period. What a headache. This was especially a problem since they weren’t exactly WordPress experts themselves. Yahoo Small Business really has no business offering WordPress sites since they can’t seem to staff people who know how to deal with WordPress issues. So know I’m starting a new WordPress blog, this time on wordpress.com. I figure all these guys do is WordPress, so they should know what they are doing. And hopefully their hosted sites will be a bit more stable and crash less often. I have to say, if this doesn’t work I’m done with having my own website. I’ll just upload stuff to instagram and be done with it. I’m an artist, not a web designer. I don’t have time for this. I hate to vent on you guys, but I really am a bit freaked out about how much work this has been. And now I have to start all over yet again.

I am a self taught artist living in Bradford, Vermont. I build furniture and create woodburning art for a living, and also create oil on canvas paintings. I sell my paintings on eBay as nightairstudios. And I sell my woodburning art locally. You can see my work at the Pompanoosuc Mills showroom in East Thetford.
