Distraction Free?

As I clicked over to read new comments on my blog today, I noticed an interesting WordPress announcement.  You know those hyperlinks that show up on your dashboard, often announcing a brand new theme?  “Distraction Free Writing” it proclaimed!  Distraction free, really?  Was WordPress going to come to my house and take the dogs for a walk,

and drive the girls to dance class for me?

Well, of course not Karma, I thought to myself, but what exactly did they mean?  I clicked the link that led me to this post, “Now More Than Ever: Just Write”.

The post explained some new tweaks and features.  Want to go read that and come back so that I don’t have to repeat them all here?  Go ahead, go read – I’ll wait.  So here I am using the Distraction Free Writing mode on full screen.  It’s pretty cool.  I like being able to see more of my post as I write it without all the little sidebars and such.  It kind of makes me feel like I am more of a pro, rather than just little ol’ me!

Am I distraction free?  I doubt that will ever be – especially while my house contains two children, a husband, two dogs, a cat and a sink full of dirty dishes – but thanks WordPress, for making my post-writing feel a little less like I have A.D.D.
