FIRST, THE HEADLINES:
LHS EVERYBODY RUN TO DASHBOARD PHOTO NAMES AND PLEASURE LINK YOUR PEOPLE RHS.
Now (pause), the news in detail:
A network is not a ‘net’. It was good looking at the blog roll of 58 names this morning. I hope it lengthens. I think everybody’s got the idea they can post about themselves, their work, ideas and frustrations on/with the subject. To wit, picking at the fabric of ‘nets’ (positive and negative) and representing their meaning with metaphor (comforting or discomforting) -an ‘underground’ attitude.
As some would know, WordPress has a variety of optional ‘widgets’ that show up in the RHS and LHS columns. We haven’t added any since it started. Now I’ve put in ‘Author Grid’. I like seeing the area of it. As yet at least, we look about as ‘underground’ as a crochet blanket. When you click onto a face (or quilt square) in the grid, it brings up all of that contributor’s posts.
So, I am asking EVERYBODY to RUN TO their DASHBOARD. Please edit these two points in your account details (‘it’s for your own good’):
1. Add a PHOTO
2. Enter your first and second NAMES in the boxes provided.
When you read a post, it’s good to have a clue who poster ‘trnip48’ or ‘mrsxpls’ might possibly be AND the grid widget will be a PLEASURE to behold. The multi-faceted Netwurk.
Note that, thanks to Karen Griffith, who first raised it, there is already a Facebook widget – on the top LHS. I haven’t used it yet. I’m going to try that out and also make a ‘Nets’ photo album. You could consider linking too. If you want to go viral, LINK YOUR PEOPLE to your posts. We’re big enough now to make up a reasonable sized Facebook ‘group’. Anybody interested?
Should you meet even the silliest problem in any of these above vital processes, make comment here … and I swear I’ll post you the fix – a step at a time.
PS. Don’t miss ‘latest comments’ widget (RHS).
