It's a very exciting time for our site! We're moving to
WordPress, and we'll have a whole new design.
I originally started this site way back in the 90's using
basic HTML, and then I quickly started using a Microsoft
program called Frontpage. They stopped making that in 2003.
Then Microsoft came out with a similar prodocut called
Expression Web, which I've been using for just a few years
(I still use Frontpage as well). These are both old
programs, and although I like them, there are many things
about them that are problematic. Our site is very large now,
and it makes it tough to keep it updated with the older
technology. The newer technology works much better.
The new site will be at tvmeg.com (Right now that still
points to the old site), but right now we're working on it
You can check it out if you want, but there's not too much
there right now, and it will likely change.
Our site's new logo may be changing, for one thing. It was
H. My artist friend
working on a different one, so I may use hers, instead. We
I have resisted this big change for years because it means
lack of control on my end, but I think it will be a great
change and make things so much easier for all of us. I
hate learning new software, but Wordpress doesn't seem too
hard. I'm still learning it, though.
I have some other fine people to help me. First, our
webhost, Marcos, set up the Wordpress site on his server.
Thank you, Marcos! Then I received a lot of great free
advice from a guy named Will
Fastie about updating my site and moving to a CMS
(Content Management System). Lastly, one of our former
volunteers Sammi, who runs
TV Grapevine, gave me
her valuable time this week to set up the new theme and
everything in Wordpress. I am so lucky to have such great
free help!! I could not do this without it. Not to mention
the other 25 volunteers that we already have on our site!
It will take me a while to learn Wordpress and start putting
up new content, but stay tuned. Also, it will take me even
longer to move over the older content to the new site. We
will do it, though!
Speaking of volunteers,
Brenda used to
do proofreading and write
recaps for our site,
years ago. She is back now and helping me with this
transition. First she is making the new daytime pages for me
used to do), which is a big help because it has to be done
every weekend and takes a bit of time. Then she will
be helping me with some other things as well as helping to
move the older content to the new site at some point.
I'm so grateful to have her back!
I try to keep in touch with everyone I know online via
social media, and that has been a great reward whenever I
need help. It's not just
great for reconnecting with old high school friends! :)
San Diego Comic-Con
is coming up soon, for those of you who are lucky to go....
We'll have some articles and many photos as usual on our
If you go to SDCC, look for our photographer
she'll be handing out some limited edition post cards from
our site. There are only 200! These are a great souvenir,
but you can also use them for autographs. Zina is usually
attending with my brother
6'2", so they should stand out a bit, even in the SDCC
What are you watching this summer on TV? I'm still watching
"Bold & the Beautiful"
daily, although I'm not too thrilled with the lame
storylines recently. I'm not too fond of the new young
interns, or the stalker Zoe. The actors are fine, but the
writing is just not good enough to make me care about them.
They shouldn't have just rushed them all in like they did.
I like Sally and Wyatt, even though they also rushed that
whole storyline. I really liked Wyatt and Katie, and I hated
how they broke them up and then just reassigned them both to
Sally and Thorne overnight. How does this show still
have such bad writing after all these years? I miss seeing
Eric and Quinn. I wish they had more story. I don't like the
new Hope at all, and I really don't like the new
Bill/Steffy/Liam/Hope mess. UGH.
I've also been catching up on episodes of "General
Hospital" from 2 years ago (backlog on my DVR) as well
as watching current episodes of the fabulous AMC show
"Dietland," Freeform's "Cloak & Dagger," "The 100" on The
CW, and "Elementary"
on CBS. I also still watch the comedy news shows "The Daily
Show," "The Jim Jefferies Show," (both on Comedy Central)
"Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," on TBS, and "Real Time
with Bill Maher," and "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver"
on HBO. This is all keeping me pretty busy. I haven't been
doing a great job of keeping up on
reviews for the
new shows. I confess that I also have a stack of DVD's to
Oh, my DISH Network has this channel called FETV that has
many old and classic shows. I usually watch re-runs of "The
Flying Nun" on there every day, too! I loved that show when
I was a kid! ;)
I'm really looking forward to the return of "Suits" 7/18 on
USA Network. It'll be interesting to see how they do Season
8 without Mike and Rachel.
I have two new
interviews this coming week...it's been awhile since I
even had time to look through my emails to find interview
requests! These are some great soap stars, so that will be
