I spent a good portion of Saturday night moving Rainy-Day Saver over to WordPress (finally!). Goodbye, Blogger. You were easy to work with, but had your limitations. It was a crash course in everything — changing feeds and permalinks, and learning some CSS on the fly.
Now, I’m on the hunt for a more permanent theme that mimics my last redesign, which I did just two short weeks ago. Poor planning on my part? You bet. But Budgets Are Sexy‘s move to WordPress this same weekend, along with Financial Samurai‘s note that Blogger doesn’t support trackbacks, spurred me to sponanteity. Again, please bear with me as I work out the kinks. If you come across any problems, please let me know by emailing me at rainydaysaver[at]gmail.com. And yet, I know the nav bar on top is ugly and has the strangest categories. I’m working on it!
Battered by Another Storm
It’s been a crazy weekend, thanks to a nor’easter that ripped through the NYC metro area. Our little town was whipped by near-hurricane-force wind gusts, bringing down another bunch of trees in our neighborhood and cutting power to many people in the area.
Unfortunately, we had some of our ugly mint-green aluminum siding ripped from the side of the house, leaving the framing exposed. Mr. Saver and dad-in-law will be putting up the rogue pieces later today while I’m at work. It may not look pretty, but at least it didn’t happen in the front of the house. It’s not enough damage to bother filing a claim with the insurance company — we have a $1,000 deductible. Anyway, where would we find more of said ugly mint-green aluminum siding in this millennium?
