Getting Back on the Horse

PaMdora’s back!
Maybe not in full strength, but she’s getting there…

In cleaning up my hard drive, I happily found this old template for the blog. It’s a couple of years old so it doesn’t have my blog links, but it will do for now. However I wasn’t too worried about recovering it because I’ve been working for a couple of weeks to learn WordPress.

So far I’ve created this new site for my group Uncommon Threads using WordPress. I hope the members will be able to use it to publish their own art. And I converted another blog RuBert Studios to it. I’ve been trying to get the courage to tackle PaMdora’s Box. It has over 300 posts, and seems like a lot tougher nut to crack.

The reason I was cleaning my hard drive was a package that I’ve been anxiously awaiting has arrived.

I’ve never really been a Mac person, but disaster struck our studio and several computers needed to be replaced. After shopping around for a month, I decided it was time to make the leap. Don’t worry Windows-lovers, I’m still a fan too, and if Russ works the same magic on this laptop as his did on another, I’ll be running Windows in Parallels. Because I just love Picassa and can’t give up a few other favorites.

We’ve always seen technology as something to help us in the wild weird art world, and there’s nothing like a little trama to make you re-think, re-group, and recharge. Besides, how can you not love something that is packaged so beautifully. Can you believe that’s the styrafoam under the computer?

  1. You’ll love the Mac like I do – and You never change back to windows. And I hope Your life get back to normal – finally. I wish you all the best, and I love your Art 🙂

  2. Great to have you back on my “to read” list. I am a longtime mac user and am, of course, convinced you will love it. The studio looks like it is recovering well. If you want some tips on widgets or other fun stuff let me know.

  3. Hi Pam,
    I just made the leap to a MacBook Pro, and I love it. So far I am going cold turkey, no Windows programs except for Mac:Messenger. I love your art. I hate that you went through what you did with your studio. Much love & blessings, Lynda Thompson
