I've been trying to format this blog to place a slideshow of the books I've published at the side. If wishes were horses . . . (oops, another idiom. I love them!) I could put them on one post but then they would disappear from sight into the vacuum of previous posts. As what sometimes (often) happens with technology, I know what I want to do but the question then becomes how to do it.
Over the years, I have upgraded my skills and abilities in this regard. In some cases--perhaps many cases--computer programs have improved to be more intuitive and easier to use. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find this out directly from Blogger, the program that this blog is on. In this case it led me to the 'layout' tab and then 'Add a slideshow' but it seems I can only had photographs that are pre-selected. These are various scenic and artsy drawings, some attractive enough, but definitely not my covers. So I persevere.
Someone suggested to me once that I simply type my question into Google and I must confess I have found that this simple solution works quite often. I try out something called Photobucket and go to the trouble to upload all my covers but alas, something goes wrong between steps and the slideshow fails to materialize. I try another similar process, without success as well before ending up with the slideshow that now presents itself at the top of each post.
Not exactly what I had in mind but I'll leave it for a while and see if it grows on me. Meanwhile, I am also attempting to find out how to undo the present pagination in a book and re-place it so that will occupy me for a while.
