10 years of blogging, and I’m back!

The blog went down last week, and I’m still not sure why.  Some combination of a plugin + theme + something was telling WordPress to display … nothing.  No admin, no blog, no nothing.  It was awful and it’s been a frustrating week and I got up an hour earlier than normal this morning...

Remember when I said things would be wonky around here?

And then I said I would be done by 9:00? And three days later, the blog is still wonky? Well … the wonkiness will probably last a bit, but I’m finally FINALLY on the way to a blog I like the look of. While I expect I’ll continue to tweak the look and organization...

I’m baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack (I hope)!

I haven’t been writing because life has been completely overwhelming lately. Well, not just life. Life in the Foreign Service, which ties so closely to work as to make it impossible to write about life without also writing about work. I didn’t realize until I logged in today that I hadn’t actually published a...

Changes are a-comin’!

I cannot maintain more than one blog. There, I said it. It’s too much effort to have to think about tone, professionalism, cross-over, and what my State colleagues and future supervisors will think of everyhing. I’d intended to keep blogging about food and homemaking on HMNIT, and professionally on SVO, but Foreign Service is...

World Food Day and WHERE HAS THERESA BEEN!?

I’ve never felt guilty about being one of the haves. I was born white, middle-class, straight, Protestant to parents who saw that I got a good education, gave me a love of reading and learning, and who were well enough that I could take off to see the world straight out of college. Privilege...

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes

SVO’s moved to a new server! Despite rebooting serveral times, I was unable to solve the malware problem, so I up and moved. Archives will be back as soon as I get back to Cotonou from Parakou. In the meantime, enjoy visiting my blog w/o risk of downloading a virus.seo в яндекс

Reboot?

This morning, Mom emailed me to let me know that this blog has a virus! Or rather, that somehow SVO had been hacked, and it was making her anti-virus software go nuts every time she visited. Hmmmm. I wiped the slate clean, so please let me know if this is still happening to anyone...

Possible feed wonkiness

I switched the RSS/atom feeds over to FeedBurner this morning. There *shouldn’t* be any problems, but if there are, please holler!коммерческое предложение по оптимизации сайта
