First things first. I have absolutely no idea what I am doing.
I’ve been in this sort of situation before, sitting in front of a blank screen, or sitting in an interview for a job I am completely unqualified to do, or standing in front of a group of people a bit unprepared. I have been there, so I know at the very least life will go on. I won’t die from not knowing what I’m doing.
I know what I want to do. I know how I want it to look. I know I can do this, I just am absolutely flummoxed by the technology. It shouldn’t be as complicated as it seems. This WordPress site is full of words like ‘widgets’ and ‘plugins’ and ‘slider revolutions shortcode creator’. Why is it so complicated? There is SO MUCH for me to learn!
I am posting this despite my internal voice screaming at me, “No! This isn’t even good writing! You’re just going to sound dumb!” I am posting it because I hope to always be authentic in my writing, so when I feel dumb I can write about it, put it out there, and get over it. I am posting it because I have to start somewhere.
