Highlighting (Part 2) & Cleaning up my Website

This a photo from an Old Blog Postings (Tatting Embellished Denim Shirt--Patterns Included)


I do know that my website is ‘messy’. The theme that I chose to start creating my website probably wasn’t the best choice. But all this web/computer stuff is not my thing! I’m a tatter-first, a designer & shuttle maker-second, then the computer/web stuff comes after that so that I can communicate with other tatters.

So in an attempt to clean-up my website, I spent a few tense moments with my husband trying to figure out something and I have persevered!!!! I actually want to sing the song “I have survived…” here now. Anyway, I worked on the OLD BLOG POSTINGS pages and instead of having a drop-down submenu item, I only have one page in which I have all the pages listed and linked to open in a new tab/window. I’m not sure if opening the page in a new window is the right thing to do or not, but that would involve another (probably tense) conversation with my husband to figure out. I choose my battles –I mean conversations–regarding technology very carefully. The problem with him is that he doesn’t realize everyone is as technically savvy or as smart as he is. (Do keep in mind that he is a Vice President for an IT section at a Fortune 500 company.)  So I do acknowledge that talking ‘technical talk’ to this me can be very painful to him too.

So take a look at my OLD BLOG POSTINGS section. It is here you will find information that I had posted in the past to another blog site in the past. In an attempt to keep what may be the good stuff (not just ramblings/dribble) I decided to move certain things to this website and this menu.

I’d be interested in hearing what you think of this format. Email me direct at: k.bovard@yahoo.com or leave a comment on the page.    BTW, does the ‘Comment’ section work????? Again, my lack of web knowledge is showing.


  1. Yesterday the comment portion wasn't working (although I did manage in one spot) but today it's working!

    I think one of the hardest things for us tech-savvy folks to imagine is why it doesn't make sense to others. I think it's how our brains are wired (not better just differently) and it's a bit like that person who tries and tries and never gets tatting, they just don't have the dexterity at first. Everyone can do it but for some it just takes longer. Kudos to you for hanging in there with your husband!

    1. Thanks so much for 'Thatta a Girl!' I love the tatting and designing and the shuttle-making....the computer stuff takes way too much time away from the stuff I really love doing,
