Good Morning, dear friends! I hope you enjoy the butterflies. It is a shame summer is almost over and these beautiful creatures will be gone to next year. Where does time go? It seems like it flies by for me. I get up at 5:00 a.m., and the next thing I know it is time to cook supper and go to bed. My, my, my, time flies when you are having fun, lol!
I was going through the comments in the back today and there were a few issues I wanted to address. First, I have had a couple of individuals that want to unsubscribe to the blog. The reason being, they are receiving too many emails in their accounts. I probably should have emphasized that this blog generates about 25 to 35 (if not more) posts a day. I am use to posting a lot. In my group that I use to have, I was known as a power poster. Now whether that is a compliment or not, I ain’t for sure, lol! But I like to post. It gets my mind off of my problems and I consider it my free therapy. So I do put out a lot of posts. And if you don’t want to receive this many in your email, then it is best to read the blog. I also had these individuals ask me to unsubscribe them, I cannot do this. You have to do this yourself. In your WordPress account, you have a section called “My Subscriptions.” This is the place you need to go to unsubscribe to this blog or any other blog.
Next, I had quite a few individuals that wanted to exchange links with me. I gladly exchange links with anyone that puts this blog’s link on their blog or website first. You might be wondering why I am that picky. It isn’t really being picky at all. I have had individuals in the past that say they have put the WOTC link on their site. Now here is there link, please put it on your site NOW! When I would go to check to see if my link was there, guess what? It wasn’t! So now I have a policy, that a link to the WOTC must first be on your site. Then I go and check and if it is there, I will be more than happy to put you on this blog. When you ask to exchange links, please include your blog’s or website’s name and then the addy. I love to add new site to the link section. So if you would like to exchange links, I would love too.
Next, I have had several individuals want to know if I would guest write on their sites. Of course, I would be more than happy too. I am hoping these sites deal with Witchcraft or a similar topic in this field. I would prefer to decide what I am going to write about. Then I would submit it to you for your approval. Or if you have a topic in mind, then let me know. If I am familiar with the subject and can write about it, I will. If not, then you will have to pick another one. The ones that asked this favor, I have your email addys and will be contacting you soon.
And last but not least, I have had a million and one questions about this blog’s format, who is my host and my service provider (I am going to try to group this all together, lol!). The blog format is from a template that WordPress provides. When I had my group, I had my assistant managers do most of the posting while I played with the graphics. I love to do graphics and I am a graphic nut. I am always hunting for new pics, backgrounds and any thing else I can use. When I first started this blog, I knew nothing about blogging. One night, I was bored with the way the blog looked very plain. I got to hunting in the template section. I noticed some of the blogs said you could change the background and the headers, plus a few other things. Well I picked one out that you could change the header and background on. I didn’t know what I was doing so I when to the new template and started playing. I uploaded a starry background that I had and checked and there it was. Then I moved over to the header section (that was a little scary!). This section gives you the option to upload three pics. So I uploaded the three pics that I liked. Then you have the option of cropping one to be your header. Oh, brother, let me tell you my cropping skills sucked, lol! I finally got the hang of it and put up my first new header (which is not the one now). Then I darken the whole thing and I was finished. I took a look at the blog and like to have fallen out in the floor. I couldn’t believe I had done it, but I had. So the blog format here is nothing special. It is a regular WordPress template that I have customized myself. A few individuals are also curious about who my host is and who do I recommend. I recommend WordPress very highly. The options they offer are unbelievable. The blog owner is in blog heaven here. You just have to try it to see what I mean. WordPress gives you everything you need to do a blog. Then they host it themself. Lastly, who is my internet provider because the blog loads so fast. Well I don’t believe it has a thing to do with my server because I am with a small county co-op that provides DSL. I believe the blog loads fast because of WordPress and their excellent service.
Oh, I almost forgot I got one that said I was whining again. Yes, I confess I whine all the time. In fact, I am whining now, lmao! It amazes me, if I am so whiny then why does this person stop by the blog. You know, if I knew a person was whiny, I wouldn’t keep stopping by. Would you? I guess they must be stopping by to see what I am whining about today. Hmmmm…….
I hope I have covered most of your questions. I am sorry I cannot answer you personal but I am pushing 2000 comments again. I cleaned it out over the weekend and was down to 800. Then I check today and it is almost 2000 again. I love to read all of your wonderful comments. I must say thank you for all the words of encouragement and good wishes. I couldn’t ask for a better group of readers and friends. You are all fantastic and I sincerely wish I did have the time to communicate with all of you and get to know you better. I am glad you are enjoying the blog. Remember this is your blog too. If you have any suggestions or comments, please let me know. Till then……
Much love to all,
