Everyday Q&A II: Tell Her About It

When I started blogging, I didn’t know what I was doing. Still don’t in many ways.

Everyday Q&A was an attempt to let you in on what I was learning so you could learn too. We’re all in this together.

Time for Q&A II. A sequel about comments and sharing.

Q: Should I comment?

A: Yes, but only if you want to. Comments are always appreciated and always optional.

Q: What should I write?

A: Whatever you like within the bounds of good taste and discretion.

Q: What if I make a mistake or change my mind after it’s posted?

A: Contact me at everyday epistle at att dot net if you need me to change or remove your comment. I will be happy to oblige. A word of caution: once it’s out there, it’s out there.

Q: Huh?

A: As best I can understand, web browsers like Google periodically store content in caches.

If Google caches a post before a comment’s removed or changed, that comment may show up in a search even after it’s removed or changed, at least until Google crawls around again to cache the revised version.

Don’t ask me how. It’s like elfin magic.

Q: Do I have to be a blogger to comment?

A: No. Anyone can comment on any post. A lot of the folks who comment are bloggers. Many are not.

Q: Do I have to join a group?

A: Yes. You have to join the everyday epistle fan club. Just kidding. Membership is not required to comment.

You can like everyday epistle on Facebook if you want. That’s the closest thing there is to a fan club.

Q: Do I have to use my real name?

A: Use whatever name you want. One friend uses an anagram and another uses an alias. Seriously.

Q: Why would they do that?

A: Remember, once it’s out there, it’s out there. If you use your full name and someone like an employer, your significant other, or your mom searches, they very well may find you and your comment here.

Q: Why do I have to give my email address?

A: Security. Your email address is not published on the blog. Only WordPress and I can see it.

Q: Why might I have to type a captcha?

A: Security again. Trying to keep the spammers at bay.

Q: How can I get my picture to show up beside my comment?

A: For WordPress, go to Gravatar and upload a photo there.

Q: Do you even read the comments?

A: Yes. I read them all. And I try to respond to them all. Dew drop inn to dialog.

Q: Should I share a post I like?

A: Yes, please. Word of mouth is the way this community grows.

Q: How do I share a post?

A: Go to the end of the post you want to share and click on the button for how you want to share it (Facebook, Twitter, email, print, WordPress reblog, Pinterest). WordPress may ask you some security questions to complete the share.

Q: What happens when I share a post?

A: It will be shared by you in the outlet you chose. Your people will read what you liked and maybe like it too. And every time you share a post, an angel gets his wings. It’s a wonderful life!

And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God. Hebrews 13:16 NLT

  1. Being new to the whole blogging thing. . .this was very informative.
    Having come from the generation of the “Correcting Selectric II,” technology is just magic! (You will get that reference if you were born prior to 1980) What I like the best about blogging though, is the connection with like-minded people who share their thoughts and their hearts though hundreds of miles away. It heightens that sense of oneness and that we are all connected. . .by more than just our blogs. ;-) This was a good post for me to read! Thanks. Good wishes and good will Aimee!
