Day 4220 Of Parenthood


As a blogging newbie I want to apologize for several errors which will be listed below. Forgive me as I learn my way around the blogging world with little to no knowledge of computers or the internet.             

1. Sign up for a McKlinky Pregnancy Roundup and I am not pregnant.
2. Somehow end up with 2 Blogger dashboards, which cofuses the Friends Following Friends system at Mom Bloggers Club. (My screen names are Fabulously Chaotic and Surviving Little People.)
3. Sign up for an e-mail system that I am not sure how to get back to. It is not Yahoo or Google.
4. Put previously published posts back into drafts so they can't be accessed through archives. I figured that out after a fellow blogger came to read my Florida Archive and it was missing!!
5. Have not figured out how to put reply to comments on my blog so that I can answer your comment.
I am sure I have been guilty of many more blogging faux pas - Girls thanks for your patience.

Ah ha! Now I know why you are appearing twice on my followers listing! I am a technophobe and have had no end of problems getting my blog set up too, so totally understand. Regarding comments, you can reply in your own comments section, which is what some people do, or you can set up your blog so that each time someone posts a comment you get an email notification and reply to the emails individually that way - which is more personal. I'm on blogger too and only figured this out last week - so what you do from your dashboard select settings or from elsewhere select customize then settings, and then select comments. This is the menu for all options on comments - at the bottom is a section where you can list email addresses to notify when you get a comment. Then you can follow those threads and reply with an email of your own. Hope that helps! Meanwhile I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get any benefits from using Twitter!

I only recently figured out how to make two of my "Accidentally Created" blogs invisible so I can concentrate on posting and following others from just the one blog.

Hang in there; we're all in this together.

Lol! I'm new to your blog and had to laugh when I read this! I have been up all night at times trying to figure things out so your not alone in trying to get things to work right! :) I dont usually leave links but I follow a blog that has thought me soooo much and he posted on how to add a reply option to comments in blogger (it's a blogger help blog) Heres that post:
I hope it helps you do what you are wanting to do. I am soon going to change my comments over to Discus, I've heard great things!

Love your blog!

You seem to be doing just fine! Your blog is terrific! Since you have kids, you might enjoy where we incorporated the educational value of Disney entertainment into homeschool lessons and creative activities.
