“You know, Jerry, I think this changes the relationship.”

I’m going to go ahead and share the link to my creativity blog.  It’s titled Alison Wonderland.  I’ll be adding more content as time passes.  Today is kicking my ass.  It’s nothing significant, just little changes that are adding up.  I’m overtired, so that’s probably the root of the issue.  I hope I sleep tonight.

I was delighted to discover the best affordable headphones for Synthesis by Evanescence is the Beyerdynamic DT 770 Pro 250 Ohm.  They’re less than $200, have all replaceable parts, and come with a two-year warranty.   I like the all black colorway.  My current Grado’s will do until they’re back in stock.  (They’re what I bought for The Open Door.)

I’m off to continue reading, Oathbringer, by Brandon Sanderson.  I’m enjoying it immensely.

  • Omg I love your new blog! Followed, via email (I didn’t see a Follow button on the bottom of the site, but that could be my own tech issue lol 😂). Evanescence is amazing!! I’ve been captivated by them ever since I first heard them in 2003. So cool to know they just keep getting better and better!! 👏👏👏

    Omg you write music too?? Hehe same here!! I just need to learn how to use my keyboard, which I’ve also had since 2003 😂😂. It’s way too much machine for me, but who’s watching? 😉😂. Love to you, Wiser Sister!! Nice work!! 😘💓💜💙💚

    • Thank you!! WordPress just changed their tier program for premium themes. It’s brilliant, but unfortunate for me who will choose a different, less crippled theme. Yay for knowing how awesome Evanescence is! Mwah!!! Love you! 💜💜💜

  • I read your post about expanding your site with intrigue. Personally, I think you should opt for the highest tier for several reasons. It’s about $250/year but you can also opt for monthly installments which I think were around $30/month. It basically makes your WordPress installation fabulous with tons of support whenever you need it.

    You get access to all the premium templates, no advertising, Google analytics integration, tons of storage for video, automatically optimized images to lessen load time, just to name some. Best of all, it’s the most secure option with the least effort required.

    The upgrade included a few new tiers, such as the lowest, which basically eliminates advertising, takes care of spam comments, and gets you in line for support if needed. Unfortunately, the themes that come with this lowest tier aren’t worthy of the word premium by a long shot. There are other options for getting premium themes, though, so if the top tier price is too high, or you’re not ready to make the move yet, even the lowest tier, which is around $50/year, will be better than nothing.

    The middle tier is the one that’s brilliant for WordPress, but sucks for me, personally. Heh. You get premium themes that are crippled. (Unless you’re really good at code/CSS/have a lot of patience.) They’re not very tweakable for someone who doesn’t want to get into the code. They’re basic. You have to go up to the top tier to get access to all the premium themes, though.

    Lastly, I have a handful of premium themes I purchased through other websites that I’m not using, and you can use for free if you want. It’s a bit upsetting to me that I paid as much as $150 for a theme that isn’t being used. They’re scalable to accommodate anything from a blog to a major company with high traffic.

    Lastly, I’ll give you my 2 cents. If you are presently hosting your WordPress on a virtual server rather than their servers, you may want to see what they have on offer as far as themes and support. But I’ve discovered the top tier hosted by WordPress is the ultimate solution, and I won’t bother with any other option from now on. It’s fast, secure, they update everything automatically and backup your site for you and shit. It’s like the difference between getting in line to go through TSA at a major airport, or sailing through a Pre-Check line, where the TSA agents are super friendly, helpful, and just want you to have a good trip.

    Sorry for the book! Let me know if you want to check out my neglected themes. Love you! <3
