  1. Okay, finally I get to where I want to be – your WordPress Blog, only to find that you have moved out.
    Your main site: http://www.kirabutler.com/ is such a delicious straitjacket – it took me ages to find my way out of it. πŸ™‚
    I had to start on your main site because that is where I ended up when I follow the Link on the Like you popped on one of my Comments on Roberta’s blog (https://robertapimentel.com/2016/06/22/share-your-blog/comment-page-1/#comment-547).
    I can see that you are a talented designer – your site is so very lush and beautiful.
    I can tell whether you are a good writer (yet) because I’m still trying to master your website.
    Okay – clicking on a link to get “Chatham’s Body” … more words.
    Alright – clicking on a further link to get “Chatham’s Body” … blocked by my firewall at work (yeah – even when I’m on a break).
    Sigh.
    Kind regards – Frustrated of York (aka Robert).

    • You’re gonna want to try http://kirabutler.com/blog/ (there’s a link in the global menu at the top of the site for it. What browser are you using, out of curiosity? Could be there’s a conflict with the theme if you can’t see the menu to get around.) I’ve never used wordpress.com — everything’s self-hosted, but it *is* a wordpress installation. πŸ˜‰

      I can’t speak to the firewall, though, sorry. Sounds like you tried to download a story but it won’t let you.

      • The firewall is just a work thing – not to worry – it’ll work at home.
        I know about the self-hosted WordPress option – it’s all good.
        You do have a wordpress.com account – I left a couple of comments on it. If it is not yours, then someone remarkably like you (same picture) has one.
        There is no conflict between my browser and your site/menu system – it’s just that you have a rather … complex layout (as befits your status as a web guru par excellence). πŸ™‚
        I’ll get your story later, Kira.
        Kindness – Robert.

      • Ah I understand now. This is what I get for trying to communicate pre-caffeination. Thanks for the compliment. (Usually when someone says they have difficulty navigating something I’ve built my impulse is either troubleshoot or investigate what the issue is to make the process simpler.)

        Anyway, thanks and welcome πŸ™‚
