    Update: Thanks to all my blog followers. thank you for your patience and being faithful. I feel like I sound like I am making excuses for my absence. I hate I have not had the energy even to follow up on you all liking my blog posts and such. It seems like I am doing okay for a couple weeks and get hit with some other issue within my medical problems. Someday I hope to get back to a normal schedule and the vitality of health with mind and body. Thanks for your patience. You are all the best.

      As you know I do have some of the same challenges sweets. So your not alone. SO happy to see you visit my blog though! I will send healthy vibes and prayers your way. I hope all else is blessed your way. I have been MIA over on my Book Blog as I am deep in writing again two book projects!

      One is my 2nd book and I am excited and blessed to say I am co-writing a memoir with/for a former NFL Pro from the Denver Broncos. SOON I can say who, but not quite yet. I’m happy to see you BACK and I won’t stay away so long! LOL.

      Love & Light,
      Cat

      I hope you feel better, I totally get it. I used to hike & compete in power lifting but just have no idea when a migraine is going to hit now. So hard to keep to a schedule!

      It’s difficult to keep our blogs updated, sometimes our own minds and bodies can be our worst enemies. Personally it helps me to exercise three times per week, it not only shapes the body but the mind to be more disciplined. Despite that, I’m struggling to keep my blog updated as much as I’d like and sometimes feel overwhelmed by all the aspects a webmaster has to take care of. What I’m doing is taking baby steps, I take the time I need to learn the new tricks like SEO, social marketing or monetization and stop worrying about putting content on the blog. Imho blogging has to be a balanced journey between the right amount of struggle, effort and a healthy dose of having fun, learning new abilities.

      Take care.

    Murphy’s Law or What. Here we go. Trying to update the appearance of my blog and nothing is working on here to do it with. I have not been able to do this for awhile; Set aside time and nothing working. I get rather frustrated because this happens a lot. Maybe no one else has any issues, but it seems such an involved process to do widgets on here. I guess I neglect them and forget how to do it. Another thing I gave up on was several categories I want to get rid of and the scroll down thing jumps away and will not stay for me to do that. When I hit the update and delete category it remains there. This is a big site, a major blogging platform? Last time I contacted them on this I never got a response. They used to respond quickly. Frustrated.

      I know what you mean. I finally gave up on the widgets and sidebar things. I could never get them to work, and no answers on how to make them work. I’d rather be posting things than fiddling around with extras, anyway. 🙂 Your blog looks really nice, and easy to find your posts! 🙂

        Sorry you have had the same frustrating experience. Thank you for your kind comments. I agree with posting things and letting this part go. Thanks so much for your support.

    What is up with the day I decide to do a long post and even write stuff with the daily prompt and Word Press will not post today or do my photos. I am so frustrated! the post needs to be done today or it will not be in on time. Murphy’s Law in terrifying action!

      But it worked on this spot! After I wrote this I thought it probably would not work on posting this either.

    Tags: blogging frustrations, format wrong,   

    I switched back to my old blog theme since my posts are fine when creating them, but when published my photos are not in the post, but on the side columns. I never had this happen with this theme, but if you look below, I have added tag ons across the top of every post. I have contacted support twice and always have gotten help prior. But not one addressing of the issue. Look at the top of my posts when I transferred it here. I do not have time for this and am thinking of deleting my blog.

      I understand the frustration! I have been tempted to try out a new theme but after reading your troubles, I am having second thoughts. Good luck!

    No more blog posts. 

    Some of you may have seen how my last post turned out. For some reason my image was added to the right column and not inside my post perimeters as shown when I created it. I tried maneuvering it in several ways and nothing worked. I asked for help now 2 times on support. Any ideas. I am not posting until it is fixed. Maybe I should delete and redo, but it is too late for that challenge and am disgusted. I do not know about anyone else, but I seem to have trouble of some kind when posting quite often and I have a bout had it. Any ideas, before I am totally done. Thank you.

      I can sympathize with you. I’m not the best at technical stuff and I had to try two or three WordPress themes before I found one that I could use without too much hassle. But I got there in the end with the Twenty Ten Theme.

      • blueribbonfair 8:16 pm on February 6, 2016 Permalink | Reply

        I know it. I switched back to the theme that worked for me before and finally got help to get it formatted today. I know there may have been a way to fix it on the other theme, but tried and wasted hours. This theme is less hassle I found out. I never knew some were much harder than others. Thanks for commenting.

      wow.. I’ve never seen that before.. That’s really weird. I wish I could help but with all the changes to wordpress, I’m struggling to do much at all. 😦

        Livonne, Finally got help. Thank you. I wish they would keep things that work. I should have never tried a new theme I think also.

    Gave up trying to post a daily prompt post with a laptop with only the built in mouse. Cannot get #pingback to work. How to do it? I tried looking in support, but gave up, not finding that specific question on there.

    I took other shell pictures since I had a lot more.  The pictures were far to rushed today and my desktop is such a pain to get the pictures to upload or down load. I get confused what is what. I decided not to go do them over again since I must get to work. I will be glad to get my easy do pictures laptop back soon.

    Word Press seems to have made some changes on here and it has completely thrown me for a loop. I think it will be better to work with, but need to get used to it.

    I did a post on weekend wandering with color. took me several hours. I did it as A page post! I cannot find anywhere how to transfer it to my blog. I also cannot find a link to it on here either. I did not publish it just for me!

    I do not get the code for the twitter widget I added. Bear with me. Got to move on elsewhere or will accomplish no more than being on here for several more hours. If anyone can tell me, why the buttons are not just showing and my latest on Twitter tweets,before I have to spend my weekend fixing and figuring, I would be so grateful? Let me know.
