Yay!

I THINK I have the problem of the missing posts/feeds fixed!

Over on the sidebar you will see a nice big green and white button, third from the top, with the words feedly-follow-rectangle-flat-big_2x in it.

It is similar to the pain in the butt RSS feeds, only much better.

If I’ve done it right what you should see when you click it should look something like Screenshot (46)

It is free to join and you can follow 100 blogs for free, after that you can go unlimited for $7 a month or $65? a year.

I have also added a subscribe via email option at the very bottom on the right for those of you who might be having issues and don’t want to go the Feedly route.

I hope this helps those who are missing posts, whether you’re a reader or a poster.

-Woot! 11-17-15 I received my 1000th like!

Thank you all!

I never thought I’d reach that milestone, not that I was trying because I wasn’t, but it’s nice to know that others are reading what I put out there.

Thank you again.

As an aside: today would have been my dad’s 73rd birthday. Happy birthday, dad, wherever you are.

My Two Cents’ Worth

That’s right, I have finally posted another fanfiction story review for your perusal. Enjoy.

WANT FOLLOWERS? | Eric Schlehlein, Author/Freelance writer

I have blogged before about how to gain followers. Here is another blogger, who doesn’t enjoy what he’s doing but does it anyway, who has of the same thoughts.

He’s also expanded on what I’ve thought but may not have said: interact with the community. Let even those who like a post without commenting or following, know that you have seen them, let them know that you appreciate the fact they lead a busy life and still took the time to click a little button.

Read others blogs and like and comment on them; they will appreciate it just as much as you do.

When you leave a like or comment the blogger gets a notification that your online persona did so: It’s like a business card. When you’re at a function for your work, you carry business cards so those you interact with have a way to get in touch with you after the fact.

That’s what this is about: interacting with those who have some of the same interests and giving them a way to get in touch with you. While visiting their site counts in their statistics, actually leaving your footprint in some way lets them know WHO was there instead of just a nameless click.

WordPress Meet and Greet – All Bloggers Welcome | HarsH ReaLiTy

It seems these online ‘Meet and Greets’ happen a lot more frequently than I thought.

These meets are a small part of why I keep this, and other, sites running: to help others find a way to connect with those who may have something in common with them.

So, if you wish to do a little self-promotion or find others who share an interest feel free to leave a link (my spam filter catches anything with two or more links) or go to HarsH ReaLiTy or any of the others who do this and click away :).

  1. Add a new post on your blog with these rules, the story so far, and who’s been tagged.

  3. Add at least one sentence to the story.

The Story:

Eli stumbled into the compartment, flush and out of breath, and took the only available seat next to an old woman and a child. After months of planning, he suddenly had a bad feeling about this and stood right back up again, but at the same time, the train started moving.

He cringed, wishing he had planned this trip differently.

What Are You Reading
