He's been up there for three days.... with my camera, I might add. But have I seen any photos of the new house? Noooooo. We've talked regularly, but he's forgetting that a picture is worth a thousand words!
He is susceptible to internet peer pressure so I'm betting that within a few hours, I'll have pictures in my mailbox.
But back to my blog fiddling..... I've had a couple of people (don't worry I won't tell the world who you are!) who can't seem to figure out how to post comments because they don't have Google accounts.
They email me directly that they think they've finally succeeded and then nothing comes through, they lose their posts and after several attempts they get frustrated and give up.
I love comments, it's the only way to know who's out there. Strangely enough each of the people having trouble with their comments are pretty active on Facebook. Hmmmm.... okay, this was the nudge I needed....
I cursed Mark Zuckerberg and vowed never to watch The Social Network while I spent several tedious hours creating a Facebook Page for the blog. Facebook is a pain!!! It's not intuitive and the privacy settings practically require a map and a PhD in logistics to understand.
How in the world my Comment challenged friends can have trouble with the three easy steps to get a free Google account and yet can maintain their Facebook presence is beyond me! :)
Atta, Noel, Mr. Biggs and I stumbled off to bed around 1AM too tired to even watch mindless television.
There's now a badge in the right hand column that will link you to the News From The Hill Facebook page. You brave Facebook literate souls can click on the badge and post comments to the Facebook page if you don't want to sign in under a Google or OpenID account. I'll be learning the ropes and monitoring the Page. Wish me luck!
I agonize over photo sizing and layouts so I refuse to put posts on Facebook that would get compressed and mangled. Because of that the posts there are partial feeds, but it will serve well as a landing point for Facebook users, or a way for them to Subscribe/Like, and also to comment.
We'll see if anyone "Likes" me who isn't already a "Follower"..... such a lot to learn!
Goodness this was a technical post! And to think I remember when Joe brought the first black and white computer home and I had to learn how to click and move the mouse!
