Just had lunch with my wife over WhatsApp, and it turns out today seems to be going our way. Her Covid test has come back negative, and she’s had a positive chat with her boss about her future. Happy days. (Plus she thinks this blog-about-career-change thing is a good idea.)
I allowed myself just one day to get this site done in my two week plan. Mighty ambitious, I thought. Well, 2 hours into it and it’s going really rather well. I is liking this WordPress.com! I hadn’t realized just how similar – well, almost identical – it is to the WordPress.org version. Which is making it all very smooth sailing indeed.
Some minor frustrations – mainly when I want to do something a little bit tricksy like add some custom CSS or a plugin, and I get directed to the premium plan. Which is fine actually, because that plan is still very reasonable, but when I started this I said I’d only allow myself to see what was possible on the most basic plan available.
I had hoped that I’d have a reason to get in touch with a Happiness Engineer to experience that process from the customer side. Of course I’d also hoped I wouldn’t as that would mean this product is so good I don’t need help. (Particularly as I do have some experience with WordPress.) Either way, no reason yet, and I’m not sure I will have any truly pressing need. Plenty of time yet though. And if nothing comes up naturally, maybe I’ll dig around for something to put to them.
