WordPress Frustrations & Blogging Worries

I know the look of my WordPress theme is nothing spectacular, but with my very limited knowledge of coding and limited funds, it is the best I can do right now. Perhaps in the future it will look better.

It frustrates me to no end that I cannot do simple things such as center the title of my blog and add a logo. This would be a piece of cake for me in Microsoft Word or Excel. I guess since the look of my blog is not what is most important, I am giving myself permission to let it go and to get on with blogging.

I also wonder how much time I will spend revising each post. Sometimes the perfectionist in me just cannot let go. I hope that by admitting my writing weaknesses in my about page, I will be able to worry less about my writing style than I do about the actual content.

Worries about what my blog looked like and how well my writing style will be received is what held up getting this blog started (along with some other things). However, I am ready to move forward and write about what I am most passionate about–talking about teaching reading.

I guess what I am trying to say is that I hope the unattractive appearance of my blog and my poor grammar does not detract from my content. Furthermore, I hope that my content will be of use to my readers. And speaking of readers, I am curious to know how many people will actually find this blog about teaching reading and how helpful it will actually be.

Thanks for reading, wish me luck, and have a great day! :)
