Blog housekeeping

“Housework is a treadmill from futility to oblivion with stop-offs at tedium and counter productivity.”  ~Erma Bombeck

No wonder I have been putting off this task for so long! At the same time, like regular housework, there is something that gnaws at me. I have this little gremlin at the back of my mind, reminding me in a not-so-nice-way, you owe me. I can’t walk by that terribly dirty bathroom one more time, it is getting pretty bad by now, even gross and maybe unsanitary?

Bathrooms are not the issue right now. My blog has gotten big. There is a bunch of content here. I knew the categories were not really helping anyone who wanted to find something. The whole thing was becoming unruly. Each time I added something else, there was another little pang of, eshhh I’m only making this worse.

However, until today I had no idea how to fix it. I had an overarching map of the ideas I wanted to group everything under. But very little experience with web design. WordPress tries to make everything very easy, but I’ve had mixed results in the past. Hence the avoidance and my level of anxiety ever-increasing.


The last thing my husband said to me last night was, “I think you are quite smart and can figure this out yourself”. I put my computer away doubting that statement, but something happened in my sleep. Sunday morning at 6:30am, I’m wide awake. I figured it out somehow in the night.

It’s not such a big deal, but it means a lot to me. I’ve organized the menu categories and there is drop down lists below them! It is not done yet, but the confidence and renewed energy this has given me is amazing.

So welcome to “The Good Life List 2.0”
