I’m typing this just after updating to the new 5.0 WordPress, the blockhead version. I don’t like the idea of working with blocks. It seems to add complication where there were less complications before. But, this is my first time trying it. Working with just text has gone ok. I feel I’m typing in space […]
I thought I had all my sites set to Canadian English. But, I had missed a couple. It doesn’t come up a lot. There aren’t huge differences in Canadian English versus British, Australian or US. But, when something does pop up wrong it bugs me. Especially when spellchecker is trying to correct Canadian spelling. So, […]
Schools here in Canada, Ontario (Newmarket, Ontario to be precise) are teaching students to spell the US way. Not Canadian. Why? I don’t know but it makes me angry.

Today I am trying to fix my WordGrrls.com links for writers. Focused on Ontario and Canadian writers. I had such a good collection of links and then I went through my year of trying to get out of WordPress and all my links were somehow lost from one change to another. Files are not as […]
