Call for Admin Role!

As this forum needs a revival, it is difficult to run this forum alone. Catherine (@wynstep) has not answered to my previous post. I don’t know if she will. I don’t even know if she could harm the site. So, I have removed her admin priviledge.
A panel of three admins would be perfect. Even two would be fine.

Criteria:
1. Sincere for the cause of the forum.
2. Active participation in forum activities.
3. Innovative.

Comment on this post by Thursday, Janauary 7, 12 noon (GMT).


I’m calling all the authors of the forum here. I don’t know how many of you are still active and want to contribute here. You should at least know about the changes happening here. Please let me know if you want to continue contributing as author.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you all – and since we’re not meant to publish loads of pictures here in order not to slow the site down, here’s a link to my Christmas photo post:

Christmas Lights on the Cutty Sark

This forum seems a bit dead recently…

…so in addition to wishing you all a merry Christmas, this is a wake-up call – in case any of you would like to continue here, it might be a good new year’s resolution to return here to post and chat again.

So I hope you will forgive me for tagging you all (I will not keep doing this):

Multiple WordPress Publishing….?

Hey all, I was wondering what your thoughts were on multiple publishing. Considering a few of us discussed republishing posts a few days ago, I think this is an interesting next point to discuss.
Just so we’re all on the same page, what I mean by ‘multiple publishing’ is changing the time of a post you just published so it refreshes on people’s Reader. As long as this is done within 24 hours, this can be done many times a day.
When I first saw someone I followed do this, I thought it was a glitch and was about to unfollow and refollow, but I asked them about it and they told me they do it on purpose.
It makes sense as to why (so people who may have missed it can see it) but like republishing (no offense), it just feels a bit weird. I mean, part of the point of good blogging is knowing when you get the most viewers and working around that…right?
The problem I now face is if I should do it too. All the blogs I see that do it have a lot of followers and their posts get a lot of interaction, and I’m sure that multiple publishing helps a lot in that department.
I don’t want to seem like a cop out or that I’m spamming followers in a desperate fit for attention.
Thoughts?

Frustrated with Facebook

I just found out – after having a Facebook page for the blog since November! – that none of my posts show up in the Facebook search results… No wonder I still have the same 13 followers I started out with. And you know why? (It took me an hour’s googling to find the answer.) Because I didn’t set a cover image (I happen to like the grey background they gave me) & a call to action (because I don’t know what it is). I mean, how frustrating is this?

I go to bed now and find out what a call to action is tomorrow and then J get one. And I’ll upload a stupid cover photo. 

Arrrgh!
