Getting Personal

Off Topic: What this site is made of.

Just a little more than one week is all it took to perform maintenance on this site. That’s because I’m toning down all the plugin usage, simplify my database, get the cookie-free domain to work, and optimizing my images as best as I can. Sorry for all the inconvenience I caused you again since Sunday morning.

This site is powered by WordPress, the self-operating version you can get from wordpress.org. I’m using WordPress.org version because it’s much easier for me to handle and control than the .com version and Blogger. Over the years, I struggled to make my WP sites work only to encounter problems with them. I even gave up on WP for awhile, switching back to Blogger once more, only to come across things that compel me to go back to WP and try again. Often times it gets very frustrating. Even when my site is entirely all set up and ready to go, I end up not being satisfied with it or I unexpectently encounter problems and issues I had to attend to and resolve. I keep pushing myself more to make major changes to my WP blog to where it loads faster, have less database bloating, use less plugins, have a really great theme to work with, and surf many WP websites on tips on how to make certain things work and solve problems.

Now my website is fully functional once more. but let me warn you. When it comes to WordPress, there’s no “set it and forget it” option. Everything has to be updated, cleaned, upgraded, and enhanced every single day. Not to mention keeping up with hosting payments, coming across something you want to try and spend money on. You bought it, tinker with it, make them work. And then you decide on wither it was worth buying or an absolute waste of money. Then it’s the constant backup of files and database that’s an absolute must do so that everything won’t be lost when especially you have to migrate to another server. I experienced them all.

As long as I can afford the payments and the time to do so, I will keep this site going so I can share my Punisher Harp Art and photos, my Youtube videos showing me playing the harp, spread worthy Punisher news, and join the many millions who can’t help but ask, “Netflix, why won’t you relent and put Marvel’s The Punisher back on their air?”

Sherry Konkus lives in Owosso, MI. She is the proud owner of the Camac Athena EX Concert Grand Harp named "Grover" and is also the proud author of The Punisher Harp Zone. Sherry is the one who came up with the idea of portraying The Punisher from Marvel Comics as the punishing harpist who plays the harp in memory of his family who was killed by the mob years ago.
