It’s time to upgrade. I have been waiting, about 4 years. It’s embarrassing. I’m using version 2.3.1 of wordpress. I know. It’s SO embarassing. I’ve been staring at this little message at the bottom of my blog for eons:
I’m pretty tech savvy. I set up this blog in the first place and even did an upgrade and installation to my own server. My very own little server. I call her Claire.
But that was when I was in between jobs. I had time on my hands. Now, I struggle to make time to sit and write a blog post, let alone conduct a proper back up and install a new version of WordPress. I know: I’m lame. It will probably take an entire 10 minutes. Tops.
Well, last week I stopped being able to see my stats. That’s the area where I can tell how many of you come visit my little site. It’s where I can tell what you are reading the most, although I know you come here for the cakes. Truly you do.
Just the same, now that I can’t see something it’s forcing me to upgrade. I reread through the instructions the other night and found my old password to FTP to the server. I’m ready. I need to make sure that you really are coming here every day and the only way I can do that is by seeing my stats. So, I’ll upgrade. I’ll take the time in between making lunch and setting out the swim gear for morning lessons. I know I’ll be so happy when I do it. Then I can get back to making that time to write more posts!
