TO ALL MY SEM MENTORS: The reason you can’t find my blog on the urls provided above is because while the owner told me a long time ago to “make this happen” when I did and my director (proudly) told him that it was linked to our fanpage and website his reply was, “No way. It is very complex to do that, how did she do that?” Director replied, “You’re asking ME, how would I know. I told you before, “if Barbara doesn’t know it she learns it. She’s insatiable.” He stated, “Well, take her to take it down. I’m the only one who has control over the website and everything that comes to it and leaves from it it.
So I did…..sort of I took the company name out of the url, gave it my dog’s name, gave her an anonymous profile and made her OWN blog. She will write, I will post. She will glow and her relatives and friends will sign up. However, I left all the labels academic hahahahaha.
I did this because I sensed my director, the writer for the blog, was quietly disappointed. While she does hate the social media part of the internet, she had enjoyed the immediate high stats her one & only writing had elicited. So, I simply changed the url. I mean, this amazing woman has an MBA and an MLA in Creative Writing! She deserved a platform, right! So with only one (but fabulous article) post…..if you’re interested: http://rusty-writer.blogspot.com/
@mspseudolus Kristen, I am just overwhelmed with the gift of your time. I know it took a lot to give me all of those ideas of possibility. You are absolutely right. I let word press frustration overwhelm me and just walked away after 2 wks. But that’s NOT me. I did what the owner wanted, got “something” up.
But now, on my own time my new goal is to absolutely begin the wordpress learning ‘whiz kid’ effort! I’m a teacher, for Pete’s sake, after all! I teach, “Self-discipline is just…remembering what you want.” And I want this baaaad. I opened a word doc with your name and @mspseudolu at the top and copy/pasted your email here into it. This way you (& the others here) can inspire me AND I can come back to thank you and announce the url of a wordpress blog I’m proud to show off. Then I went to amazon and ordered the ‘dummies’ book and a video for learning wordpress. And that website…OMG….I have taken it OFF my personal email because it’s so embarrassing. The host is Infusion, but owner won’t use the expertise he’s paying for monthly. Incredible, huh? But, hey, I’m a retired teacher lucky enough to get a FT job at 60 that still let’s me teach and now learn SM and SEO, etc. I consider this position a launching pad. I learned to put up with quite a bit in those 34 years:)
@jim-lodico Until amazon arrives, I’m going to your videos this morning, thx guy!
@erikdeckers – I’m graduating, guy! You better start that blog on me, because I’m going to document my efforts in bullet points so I can teach someone else someday:)
