    Moving My Blog From Blogger To WordPress (and changing the permalink structure!)

    When I first moved The Literary Lioness over to WordPress back in 2017, I made SO. MANY. MISTAKES. I was DETERMINED not to make those same mistakes when I recently moved my other blog, New Jersey Memories, over to WordPress. Moving From Blogger to WordPress I loved Blogger but I needed to move to WordPress. Google Search Console (GSC) was refusing to index some of my posts, no matter how many times I submitted sitemaps. You would think that since Blogger is a Google product that there would be no problems. But GSC remained stubbornly aloof. Getting Used To WordPress Things have changed a lot in WordPress since 2017.

    Happy Mother’s Day And 2 Crazy Weeks | Sunday Wrap-Up

    Mother’s Day The Sunday Salon is a weekly blog hop hosted by Readerbuzz. The Sunday Post is hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. Happy Mother’s Day Everyone! I hope you have a great day! WordPress Automatically Sending New Comments To Trash I use comment moderation because of spamming issues. This is a chronic issue for WordPress users.

    Easter Sunday, Cherry Blossoms, and YouTube | Sunday Wrap-Up

    The Sunday Salon is a weekly blog hop hosted by Readerbuzz. The Sunday Post is hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer. Easter Sunday Mr. Lioness and I spent last Sunday eating a delicious Easter dinner at my sister-in-law’s house. The dinner was wonderful: roast beef, potatoes, asparagus, salad, and lots of wine! It was great seeing all the family again. It’s wonderful to see the little children growing up and developing strong personalities! Especially after two long years of COVID, it’s nice to get back to a somewhat normal life. Reading I posted a review of The Fur Person by May Sarton. It’s a lovely book about a stray cat’s search for…

    My Brand-New Computer Was Built Especially For Me!

    I Needed A New Computer My 10-year-old laptop was wonderful but starting to slow down. It kept overheating, and the battery was starting to die. There was no point in buying a new one for such an old laptop. I went out to buy a new laptop, but quickly became disenchanted because the screens were so small. Using my computer for hours a day means that I needed a powerful computer with plenty of storage. Let’s Build A Desktop Computer! My husband Mr. Lioness likes to build his own desktop computers from scratch. I decided that it would be a very good idea to have him build ME one from…
