I was finally able to update my site. I have changed over from the old Vistered Little theme, as it has not been updated in quite awhile.
Now I’ve got a little bit minimal with this new theme, which is called “Adventure”. It’s flexible, and I can change the background with some customization of the image whenever the whimsy strikes me.
Also, I’m happy with GoDaddy support. They advised me how to get updated to the latest WordPress, and it was really very simple!
