Bloggiesta Day Four: I’ve Been Busy

Good Evening dear Readers

I have conquered the rest of the items on my list:

  • Organize my flash fiction and poetry so it is easily searchable
  • Finish (or continue?) working on my “About Me,” “Announcements,” and “Best Of” pages
  • Consider other page designs that may facilitate my overall goals
  • Learn how to increase my online presence
  • Complete at least two mini-challenges
  • Attend at least one Twitter party during the event

However, it has been called to my attention that my comment buttons are hard to find on my new theme. I played around with the colors, clicked a few buttons, bothered the heck out of Google with my questions but couldn’t find anything that will work with a free WordPress account.

Anyone have any suggestions for me?

Feel free to leave me a message under “Contact Me” in the slide out screen on the upper right hand side of my blog.

Last night’s topic was about book blogging and review techniques. Before that, I participated in two twitter chats at the same time. In addition to Bloggiesta, I am also participating in the upcoming A to Z Blogging Challenge. The other chat I took part in was for a group I had never heard of before–#storydam. I’m glad I found the chat hashtag when I did..the group is phenomenal!

In short, StoryDam is a part haven, part resource and all community. Those who wish to participate can join in the conversation every Thursday night around 8 pm Eastern time. The topic?  Anything and everything that is connected to your personal WIP (Writing In Progress). It’s a chance to talk shop, compare notes, and a ton of writerly humor.

The best part is–you don’t have to miss out on last night’s or any of the past meetings because they have Twitter chat highlights 🙂

So now that I’ve accomplished my short list at a crazy pace, can you guess what I’m going to do?

Through Story Dam I found another challenge starting the same time as A to Z Blogging Challenge: NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month)! 😀 It actually fits perfectly into the theme I decided on for A to Z. 

And even though I am technically done with my list, I will never stop learning or attending the Twitter chats like the one for tonight:

COME JOIN ME FOR Tonight’S TWITTER CHAT March 27th at 9pm Eastern.
Topic for Tonight is ORGANIZE: No Stress Allowed (guest hosted by Amanda from On a Book Bender)

  3. Hi, just realised perhaps why some are struggling with finding how to comment – maybe you’ve realised already but if looking from “Home” and scrolling through all the posts on the long-page, the comment button is a small circle with either #of comments in or a zero if no comments yet. Not obvious how to comment. But if viewing a solo page, the comments box is obvious at the bottom of the post. Dunno if that helps 🙂 You’ve been busy re-organising some more 🙂 loved the slideshow for your challenge participation, nice original way of presenting that info. Good luck with A to Z and all other things.

    1. Thank you for your insight. I’m looking into a way to utilize another comment platform for my blog. Have an awesome day


      1. I find the wordpress platform fine, but in bloggiesta most seem to be using other platforms such as blogspot and maybe it’s unfamiliarity with wordpress / theme. WordPress comments seems really easy in comparison to trying to comment on some blogs – but user settings seem to have a lot to do with it.

  4. Hi, well done for completing your list 🙂 sorry to hear about the goblins and service troubles tho!

    I didn’t find comments difficult to find, but I’ve only been visiting your blog a month or so – maybe some of your longer term readers were more used to what to find where with how it was. The new theme did throw me a bit to start with, but you’ve done a great job with it. Looked great before but this layout’s superb.

    1. Thank you 🙂 I figure life is telling me to take a tiny hiatus from my blog this weekend lol.
      Have a brilliant weekend and thank you for your input.
