Two WordPress Dashboards with Different Results

In case by some strange happenstance no one has noticed, I am not an expert in any of this publishing business, SEO, WordPress, Instagram, Pinterest, Scrivener, Facebook, Twitter, etc., etc., but I am learning, and planning to let my readers know what I am learning as we go along with these posts. 

Having used WordPress for years, I recently learned something about the Dashboard that I never knew. There are basically two Dashboards, and they work with different results. I thought they were merely two different ways to accomplish the same thing, but they are not. The black Dashboard is for business users (administrators); the white Dashboard is for personal users. For example, use of the black Dashboard will not let you access the free Pixel images in your Media Library. How about that?

Likely some of you already knew, but unless a person reads every word of the Support guides, or happens to come across this information, how would one know? Anyway, I hope this helps someone. It is so basic.

First Step

I was just informed that my manuscript, Unspoken, was accepted by She Writes Press for publication in fall of 2021. That should get me blogging again.

This will be the first of what I hope to be a series about what it’s like to be published for the first time. She Writes Press sent me a 94-page Author Handbook that outlined what I am to expect in the next year, so there is going to be lots to blog about, including: editing, publicity, marketing, social media, branding, etc.

I moved into a new house with my housemates, put together an art studio, painted, started writing again, submitted my manuscript, and what a surprise! In the midst of Covid-19.

I am so fortunate to have so many creative things to do here in my own little abode. And to be living here in Tucson, Arizona.

I spent yesterday making Olson masks (https://www.sewcanshe.com/blog/simple-step-by-step-tutorial-for-the-olson-mask-pattern) for me and my housemates, Mary and Rick.

Plus I need to get caught up on what’s new here at WordPress AND learn about Instagram. Anyone else out there have a difficult time keeping up with this stuff?
