After moving my old HTML website here to Wordpress in September of 2013, I had to fix the formatting issues that caused.
Then I upgraded to the 2015 Wordpress theme last December, which caused new formatting issues with the quotes: Bolded text no longer showed up as bold, and quotes were often rammed together.
I also tended, as a baby blogger, to write HUMONGOUS paragraphs because I just kept adding and tweaking over time. That had to be fixed.
The older pages also needed updated links and major revisions. Some were ten years old and hadn’t been touched in years.
Because my site has about 1000 posts and pages (!!!), and because I actually have a life outside of the computer to run, it has taken me TWO YEARS to fix all of this.
But it’s finally finished.
Now, while doing this, I recently realized that this series of posts–The Darkness Engulfs Me–needs to be moved. It’s so huge that it clutters up the first several months of 2014, shoved in there with a bunch of College Memoir posts as well.
Also, it was actually written between 2010 and 2012, only revised in 2014. It reflects all sorts of anger, anxiety and pain which filled me between 2010 and 2012, but which no longer spend much time in my heart or head.
–to better show a sense of flow through time, from anger and pain to healing, and
–to reflect the time period in which these things were actually written,
I wish to change the publication dates to 2010 and 2011. This will take 109 posts and spread them out over a period of time when I posted very little on my blog, but during which I wrote thousands of words on my HTML website. You could say it WAS a blog, a diary of my pain, so it fits well in that part of my blog.
This post is to explain this to newcomers who may get confused, because sometimes I refer to the Darkness Engulfs Me posts in 2014 as being written. Yet now they will show as having been written already, in 2010/2011. Because, well, they were.
