You might not always want your real name displayed on emails you send. As an example, you might want to hide your name when sending somewhat anonymous feedback or contacting unknown recipients. Although your email address will still show, this only identifies the Gmail account and not necessarily your true identity. By default, Gmail uses your first and last name on your Google account, but by configuring a "Send Mail As" address, you force Gmail to use whatever name you choose.1-Log in to your

There have been Blogs or Tutorials here on creating your Gravatar account so you can put a photo or image as your face on posts, pages and comments. Many bloggers put their own face in the Gravatar while the rest of us might use a generic image of a car, a pet or whatever. There is so little privacy online as it is, with all our private information in cyberspace. I for one, have recently chosen a simile of me, an Avatar to be used as a more public face.You can still see my real face here in WA,

I helped another WA member with this recently and have been asked a few times since then. I decided to put the procedure here in a Blog so it's easy to find."in the dashboard section, click on PAGES, and there is your list of pages... now take your mouse and hover the curser under the name of your page... now you will see the choices of QUICK EDIT, EDIT, TRASH , VIEW. Choose TRASH, and your page will be trashed, kind of thrown into the garbage :) Next step is the real delete part... along the t

I love that phrase Hey Google, ever since we got a Google Home device for Christmas from our family. I simply have to say Hey Google, Good Morning! and 'she' gives me a good morning right back and gives me the weather and the news. During the day, I ask her for music and viola! I can also tell her to shut up and she does! LOL! Amazing! Speaking of Google... I bought a new domain, set up my new website, my second Wordpress website here in WA on Jan 4th 2018 and had 3 pages in by Jan. 6th. This

I came to the realization recently, that I was spending way more time helping others here, than working on my projects (website, research, training etc). I love helping others but I need to pay attention to the real reason that I am here... to build a business and earn some money. My rank was climbing, and I was at the 83 mark when this realization hit me. One of the members here, who is doing well with his websites, making good earnings, told me that it was way more important to pay attention

There is a lot of confusion as to what exactly is a BACK LINK? I have been confused about this for awhile too. I went and checked out some answers on a Forum and the following seemed to be the consensus.Inbound links are “Back links” which are the links pointing to your site. You don't have any control over someone linking TO your website unless you have your NOFOLLOW checked in your Dashboard for a particular page or post. The Inbound or Back Link, is a lot more valuable to you tha

Wow, just wow! I love Site Content features. I normally get so distracted writing a post in my WordPress editor that it can take a couple of days to finish!. My last two posts I wrote in Site Content. Today, I started and finished an almost 3000 word post with copyright free photos as well. I had purchased the Hemmingway editor but have only used it once, didn't like it at all. It was a wasted $20. The Hemmingway froze up on me the first time I used it too, and even after complaining about this

That was the message awaiting me this morning :) I admit I love helping people, even though I am a bit of a loner. Creating and operating a small Pet Hotel on our tiny ranch for 23 years really helped in bringing this canadian 'Turtle' out of her shell. My love of animals, dogs in particular, pushed me into the world of people. In the beginning, I would have been happier if the dogs that stayed with me, could have arrived without their humans in tow. Over the years, I learned a lot from their h

I have seen different directions for creating a screen shot but they involve a lot of procedures. The simplest way of taking a screenshot is with DropBox if you have a PC. Dropbox comes part of my Microsoft apps. Make sure it's activated. The symbol for DropBox will show up along the bottom with all your other icons if it's activated. All I do is press the keys CTRL and ALT together with one hand and press the Print Screen button with my other hand. I get a little notification from Dropbox and

I completed the lesson on submitting a sitemap to Google a couple of days ago, and ran into major problems. By the way..., if your website is verified by Google, you do NOT need to copy and paste your URL into the sitemap box, it's already there. All you have to do is add the part 'sitemap.xml'. However.... it did not work in my case, it turns out WA automatically redirects any www. addresses, to the non W addresses. This was causing a problem with trying to get my sitemap recognized. Support
