Adding Pages to my Blog

I’ve been updating over the last few days, adding pages to my blog. I wanted pages to showcase some of the work I’ve done over the last couple of years.

A sneak peek at the booth in Woodstock

I still have a lot of work that I would like done, but wow, adding pages to my blog is a long process! And updating the blog is an ongoing process…

Old wooden high chair – this one sold

I’ve added a page for Furniture Before and After. I’d like to have them in thumbnail format with the links to the posts, but since I haven’t posted about very many of them, that plan won’t work.

I think the photos are too big on the pages, but it’ll have to do for now. And the ones I have posted about, you can click the pictures to get to the post.

I’ve also created a page for Home and Garden Décor that I’ve completed for sale.

Again, eventually I’d love to have it as thumbnail views, with links to all the posts. But I have a lot of writing to do before that can happen!

My goal is to have sub categories under the main pages, but adding pages to my blog is time consuming so I’ll have to do a little at a time.

When I started this blog, I went with Word Press.org, my old one is on Blogger. And learning all the ins and outs of Word Press is confusing to me!

Painted lamps before and after. I’ve sold a few of these.

I’m okay with parts of it, but others…I often think I need to hire someone to help me get it all in order. Does anyone know of an affordable person to get this kind of help from??

Home made wind chime with old keys – my most popular post and pinned more than any other! You can click the picture to see the post. 

In the meantime, I’ll just keep plugging away. At least I can write a post…now to do it more often! Ha!

And now…I need to find the time…

  1. Wow!! You have been busy with stocking your booth.
    I will have to grab a cup of coffee and stay awhile.

  2. I’ve been trying to get up the nerve to move to qordpressy

  3. WordPress…. But can’t bring myself. I used to have pages, but found it was so much work to try and maintain it. Its such a good ways of organising things though, I may give it another try

  4. Perfect Debbie to have everything all organized. I am constantly trying to keep up with it all, but you will get it in time. Looking good!

  5. There is lots and lots to learn from WordPress and thank goodness I have my family of gurus who do this for their business, so I get lots of hints and tips and the latest plugins to try out.
    Adding pages is a wonderful way to link your site together and access the older sections that might get overlooked.
    If I can be of any help, just ask away.

  6. Affordable is a relative word…. free is nice, but paying to have something done is worth it if you can’t do it yourself. Have you checked out Janel from Nellie Bellie?

  7. Well well well – here you are – I’ve been looking for you for a long time Debbie LOL
    Great pieces – good luck with WordPress – let me know how it works !!!
    XOXOXO

  8. I love that you are adding pages and it will be easier to see old projects. I’m of no help to you…I’m a Blogger girl and they make it too easy!

  9. Pages are a great way to feature certain items or themes. Love it

  10. Wow looks like a great show! I love the french country look to your pieces!

  11. Great work Debbie! I can’t help either, I’m a blogger blog!

    You’re on the right track, though, keep asking around! Did you ask about this in the FB group? I’ll bet someone in the group can help you.

    Have a great week!

  12. You do wonderful furniture makeovers Debbie and your home & garden décor looks great too! Sorry I don’t know any WP coders, I’m still on Blogger. I’d do what Anne suggested, ask in the FB group!

  13. You have created some very beautiful pieces. A blog is like your home, always a work in progress. I’m struggling with mine as well. A little at a time and yes the FB group is a great place to start asking questions.

  14. It’s always so much to keep up with, isn’t it! Your projects are lovely and it’s great you’re making them more accessible to your readers. I learned how to do a lot on wordpress by just playing around and googling how-to’s.

  15. wow beautiful pieces!! can’t wait to check out the rest, you are very talented

  16. Wow, Debbie, you have some incredible projects here! I feel your pain on the updating and transitioning – that’s been the story of my life since taking on the ecommerce site of Audrey Would! Oh my goodness, the things I’ve had to learn, am in the process of learning and have yet to even try to tackle! Stay with it!! I updated my blog (WordPress) almost 2 years ago and worked with Brittany Douglas from Gallery No Eight , and I know she’s worked with Barbara from Hodge:Podge blog a few times as well – she’s a fellow Canadian blogger, and I found her to be very helpful. I just recently needed some assistance from her after over a year of being finished up with the work on my site, and she was super quick to respond and help me out. Her email is bybrittany@gmail.com – good luck!

    • Thank you so much for the information, Sheila! And so sorry I’m late in replying, but I’ve been laid up and haven’t had online time for a while. I will be checking Brittany out, hopefully I can finally get around to fixing what needs fixing on this blog of mine.
      Thanks again!!

  17. You have reminded me that I need to update my own pages. It has been literally years since I updated my “about” page. Good luck with figuring out those blogging quirks. I find that I eventually figure them out after lots of making mistakes and plugging away.
