Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

More practice


I got a couple of tips (thanks DailyMusing!) about how to maneuver through WordPress’ blockhead editing system, particularly with images.

So here goes….I should be able to delete a photo. Guess I should insert a photo first:

Then I’ll see if I can remove it….one moment please…

OH!!!!! That worked!

But wait….now there’s nothing there, and you can’t see the image…because…I REMOVED IT! 🙂 🙂 🙂

So here it is again…

It’s just a barn taken on my trip home from the night sky camping trip I took a week or more ago. In fact I have a few other barn images from that drive home. It was prime farm country, after all.

She gave me a tip on how to do a gallery too, let’s see if I can do that:

Well, THAT was interesting! I don’t know if there’s a way to decide what goes where, but at least it’s a gallery!

The trick now will be for me to remember what I did.

Always something.

Edit: I just figured out you can click on any of the pictures in the gallery and see them bigger. They’re really better bigger.

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

  2. Photos are great – I haven’t figured out the gallery yet. Maybe next time I feel like actually doing a post.


  3. I like your gallery image montage. You inspire me to try doing that… sometime.


  4. That’s what I do!!! figure something out, don’t write the steps down because it was all experimental, then I can’t reproduce it the next day.


  5. Pays to have friends who are experts in something one needs help with!
    As usual I love your barns. I particularly like the stars on two of them, one simple, one spectacularly fancy (more a starburst, I suppose). And the one opening on a decaying barn that lookslike it should’ve had a stained glass window in it.


  6. You go girl!!! Keep at it. But why they fixed things that weren’t broken i don’t know…


  7. Keep notes!! Your gallery was awesome they are huge photos! Well done!


  8. Thanks for the enlarging tip — it works great! And I love that last barn with the quilt design. We have a number of those in Tennessee, and they’re great to look at even from the busy interstate.


    • When I drive through TN on my way to AL I see great barns. Sometimes, if I’m not on a schedule, I pull off to see what I can get, but generally when I see GREAT barns there’s no exit, and then I can’t find my way back. But usually, even if I don’t find the original great barns, I find some others. I should just go to TN for barn hunting some year.

  9. Well done! I can testify it does get more natural with practice!
    I enjoyed reading your post … lots of nodding from me!


  10. Persistence for the win! It took me quite a few editing sessions to figure this new editor out. Congrats! Love your barn images! Still one of those adventures I need to pursue,


  11. I admire your persistence and your willingness to learn blocks. I still can’t bring myself to do it. I don’t know why but I have little patience when it comes to tech related things. You find such beautiful barns, and your images of them are wonderful. 🙂


    • I felt like I didn’t have a choice. One day I woke up and classic was gone, then someone provided a way to get back into classic and I did that for a long time and then one day that was gone so I was left with Block. Don’t like it still. At all. But I can use it enough to do this and I hope someday I learn whatever it is that makes it good enough to throw out a perfectly good process that we all understood.
