From Tiny Acorns Mighty Oaks Grow

Last Update: August 11, 2016

I thought I smelt Autumn in the air yesterday, This happens to me every year, and I never expect it, it is something that just happens.

Don't worry though, this weeks forecast is great, getting warmer and sunnier for the weekend and onwards, great because Leia is going to be 8 on Saturday and we really know about it, every hour of every day.......so excited.

I am feeling quite relaxed and fairly happy with my websites at the minute, don't get me wrong, I am not so relaxed that I don't have plenty to do with them still and must get on with the training, but for today, I am happy to do a little blogging and following up my followers and thanking them for following me. That always makes me happy.

Leia picked me these Daffodils in the Spring - that made me happy.

Today, I decided to try something new, and have been to three peoples websites, to have a look at them and try to leave comments and also try and share their stuff around on Social Media.

Only one had social buttons so I have let them know how to get them, by going into Plugins in your menu tab on your site and adding a new plugin. I have told them to install a popular one with a lot of previous downloads. There is a huge amount of choice but some are too complicated, some are leading to spam adverts and some are just doing what they say on the box, plain and simple - which is good.

I have also tried to leave a comment on their site. Sometimes a comment box is difficult to find but managed it on all of them.

I pointed out a few minor errors on them in a way of trying to help, because sometimes on your own websites you can read through it over and over again and an error might still not be evident to you. I don't like criticism so tried hard not to sound that way, instead I thought about it and worded what I was trying to get across in a nice and kind way.

This is a card My step daughter Leia made for me last year when she was 6, so if a six year old can do it !!!

Something like that is easy enough to do without trying to get somebody else provoked...I noticed a fast moving conversation in our Live Chat the other night and it was getting a few people stirred up which was just not necessary. It is important to uphold everyone's moral in here and continue to be the great community that we claim to be.

Play nicely everyone as we all need to boost each other's morale.

Take Care,

Andi.

Thanks Steve, nice of you to say, I was blown away by Leia's card too. Being her step mum, you never quite know you are getting the balance quite right until you receive something like that.

Aww, thanks Linda, we have her for a whole week, as it is the school summer holidays and the first time ever we have had her here on her birthday. She happened to walk in and see her photo and card I had put on here and asked why they were there, she went a bit shy, bless her. Think she was thinking, what if her mother saw it? Things are less than hunky dory between us. I must reassure her that it isn't on social media in the morning and to not worry. That's why her card was even more special because she is under pressure there and she just did it for me. I love her to bits.
