frivolous minimalistic?

Yes, Megan! My Q&A updates are about as regular as my teeth cleanings, but even that appointment is penciled into my calendar.

(I’m taking other requests/recommendations, as well, so if you’ve ever wanted to see something specific here – please, speak up.)

There’s a lot more happening and our update to the “look and feel” come AFTER the we slap a full fresh coat of white paint on all the walls and unpack the archives…

Now here’s my question: I have 473 entries left to sort and I’ve already created 47 categories! But what else do you do with 550 posts?! No matter which way you look at these stacks, they involve swaying and digging. And yes, you got me, I’m into frivolous categories, my favorite, so far, being the, “stupid me” chapter. Can frivolous chapters and a tidy reorganization co-exist in harmony on

    Hey Sol, just a heads up, it looks like your RSS feed has changed. My subscription could no longer see your old feed… Other than that, looks good!

    Okay. So Merc’s official response to the question: “Why WordPress?” is:

    “We switched to WordPress for several reasons: a) it has a lot of advanced features as part of the basic install, b) there are a large amount of plugins available that support some of the features we were looking to add, c) it has quickly become one of the largest blogging platforms – which means that it is well supported and documented – making it easy to develop and maintain.” -cnd

    I have to admit; I’ve, so far, LOVED the complete and fully user-friendly admin capabilities. And I like anything that embraces the ingenuity of its own community; like iphone apps, WP has its community working round the clock on its own improvements. It’s like letting your children take over the business, ’cause let’s face it; they are smarter, fresher, have more energy and are invested in the future that they (not parents) will ultimately live in. Anyway. I’m a traveller, not a tech-head. But all the tech-heads I DO know, have complimented the intelligence of Merc on (going up against my bull headed eagerness to move fast, to instead) move slowly and carefully making the transition to

    To be able to laugh (even light-heartedly) at one’s self because of one foibles, mistakes, blunders, misjudgments, lack of insight or foresight is (to my mind) a sign of spiritual maturity. Such self-mocking jest also indicates the beginning (or, in your case, the continuation) of wisdom: it shows humility, tolerance, self-acceptance.

    We strive for perfection in our actions, and try to make the best, most informed decisions, but the Spirit will often veer us and steer us elsewhere. Or else we were not fully attune to the Spirit at the time of making the decision.

    Frivolity is also the polar partner of seriousness, and also seeks to occasion play.

    BTW, good work on the blog renovation!
