Some folks head to the garden when they want to get away from the world. Others work on their car, or maybe bake a pie (hi, Buzz!). Me, I write, or I re-do a website. That’s the thing for today. I’m working regularly on Pontchartrain Railroad, but I’ve been wanting to mess with WordPress Network. At a Self-Publishing workshop Chris at Jefferson Parish Library did last month, there was a presentation on Pressbooks, a cloud-based authoring system. I saw that Pressbooks was available as a WordPress plugin, but it needed multi-site. So, I backed off the single-install version of ebranley dot com and configured multi-site from scratch. I can also play with a few modules like community and forum stuff.
I’ve never messed with “projects” in WordPress. Since this is a more-or-less clean start, I’m going to give it a go. I’m a total project management/time management junkie. I got hooked on the Franklin-Covey process back in the late 1980s, when a client let me join their employees on a Franklin training. The whole ABC/123 system and Covey’s systems for doing what’s important rather than what’s next stuck with me. So, ever since, I look for good time management systems.
Looking at this Muffaletta Fest happening tomorrow. Might be something good to get out of the house a bit and #people. I’m not a big fan of street festivals, though. The food rarely meets expectations. Still, sometimes you just have to get out. For me, that means getting out further than the patio at PJs. I can return to the web stuff later.
Pizza (calzone for me) and wine at Mid-City Pizza, on Banks Street tonight. The fans on their patio blow the bugs away and the temperature wasn’t so bad. I didn’t know they use Terranova’s hot sausage, so that was a treat.
