WP App Notifications

This morning my WordPress App Notifications was somehow turned off through WordPress and I was not able to read many peoples' comments.

I ended up having to delete the app and reinstall it. Once I did that, it fixed my problem, but a substantial amount of comments were lost in the process.

I just wanted to let you know that if you sent me a comment this morning and I didn't reply to it, it is because of this Notifications problem I had this morning and I apologize for not being able to get back to you.

Rolling Posts

In response to my earlier post about scrolling posts on your “Like” comments page, Dave, with ParkInkSpot came to my rescue! Thank you Dave!

– Go into your blog's dashboard and find the up and down arrow icon.

– Click on this icon and select, Reading.

– In this page you will first select: “first page displays latest post.”

– Next, (on the same page) go to “Infinity and Beyond” and select “Scroll Indefinately.”

This should change your posts displayed as scrolling!

Did You Know…

Something you can do to draw more readers to your blog?…….

People that have been blogging for awhile more than likely already know this. So, I am posting this for the newer bloggers in WordPress that follow me.

If you will make the three posts that shows on the bottom of your posts “rolling” (having it use your three latest posts), it will help bring more readers to your blog.

When you “Like” someone else's blog, if the three posts that shows at the bottom of your “Like” are always the same posts, people will stop clicking on those posts to read them, because they will have already been read.

If you would like to bring more readers to your blog, I suggest you take advantage of this worthwhile tip.

Random Moments of Delight

ZerotoHero Challenge Day 24: In response to the challenge for today, I decided to add another blogging event to my blog. This is the second event that I have chosen.

If you are interested in joining this event, please click on the photo below.

Or, if you prefer, choose an event that you are interested in by visiting: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/ and go into Blogging Events.



IMG_9326Start Date: Sunday, recurring weekly

Description: This challenge is about sharing moments of delight with each other each week. It could be a photograph, or a description; a video or a poem; a short story or essay, or a combination. Then link up here so we can share in each other’s happy moments.

The rules are simple:

1. In a new post share a treasured moment from your week and “illustrate” it with a photograph, description, poem, short prose, short video, whatever genre fits your moment. If it is visual (photo or video), please tell us why it was special to you.

2. Put a link back to my challenge that week so others may take part if they wish. If you’d like to use the badge, please do.

3. Please use the address of your POST, not your blog, in the linky. Be polite to others so we don’t have to look all over for your post.

The challenge begins on Sunday, but will stay open through Thursday, and a new one will begin the following Sunday. I chose Sunday to set us up for a wonderful week of looking for Random Moments of Delight!

Organizer: Firebonnet

Full Event Details


Frankly, many of us have days that are filled with stress, disappointments, and the struggles we individually face each and every day. What a wonderful thing to stop and write a blog post about “delightful” things we encounter during the week? Maybe it sounds cheesy to some, but to me, it sounds like a refreshing break from the every day.

Now, to finish my zerotohero challenge for the day, I will visit other participants of the events I have chosen. I hope to see you participating with me!

I wish you much success in your writing and blogging.

Another Star in Blogland! Update!!

Sorry, I had put the wrong url to link to his blog. Please try it now.

For your reading pleasure, I am introducing a blog that I have been reading and enjoying.

This blog is about a young man's experiences of “life after college.” (And during college and before college…) His writing is fresh, brilliant, and funny. I asked him to describe his blog:

The Brantley Blog: In the eyes of the law, we reach adulthood the day we turn 18 years old. God help anyone who actually believes that. One guy's embarrassing tales of learning things the hard way on the way to becoming a grown up.”

In my opinon it is much more than that. His “Brantleyisms” (and disclaimers) are personal quotes drawn from his “young male living life” wisdom. His posts are a mixture of humor and his exploration of deeper thoughts. In his words, “I'm not exactly sure where blogging will take me. I just hope that it's somewhere just as enriching and enjoyable as the path I've traveled so far.”

Please check out his blog:






Three Blogs

Two witty blogs that will keep you laughing:



A shy young man, fairly new in the blogging world, chronicles his interests and experiences in life, resulting in very interesting reading!
