A Year Of Wednesdays – 2017

In January 2017, I decided to keep my blog active by trying to post every Wednesday. I’m happy to say that I actually succeeded in making a post every Wednesday of 2017. I didn’t always put Wednesday in the title and my post sometimes was very late in the day, but make a post, I did.
For a lot of bloggers this isn’t anything to brag about, but for me it is. I admire the bloggers who have vibrant flourishing blogs. They make blogging fun.
I’m just happy I made a blogging goal and was able to meet it.

To my Blogging Buddies, Readers and Visitors,
I thank you all for a grand year of sharing our worlds together.
I look forward to many more years of sharing.
I wish you all Wonderful Wednesdays for always.

My laptop crashed big time

Thursday evening, my laptop had a major crash. I blame the recent Window Upgrades on my issues. Ever since their new upgrading started, my laptop hasn’t been the same. I tried every fix I could, but it was beyond quick fixes. I was afraid I was going to have to buy a new laptop.  I determined to try everything I could to fix this one before buying a new one. I had to fix this one during 12-2016 so I knew there was hope.

I had to do a factory reset on my laptop and it took it back to Windows 8.1. I lost every program I had installed: browsers, photo editors, mail client and so on. Thankfully the reset didn’t delete any of my personal files. I think that’s amazing.
I’m very grateful to whoever made the option to keep the personal files and still do a reset. It’s a blessing and spared me from having to do a lot of uploading my personal files. I back up my personal and photo files about once a month to an external drive. I had just backed them up earlier Thursday. Thankfully, I didn’t need them though.

After the success of the reset, I decided to live with Windows 8.1 for a while, but that wasn’t to be.
I began to try to install my anti-virus and it wasn’t happening.  I went searching for a fix and on the list of things to trouble-shoot was make sure your Windows program is up-to-date, well flitter! I was going to have to install Windows 10 anyway. I surfed out the download file and began the many many hours of install. After it finished, I was able to install my anti-virus with no trouble.

I surfed around in the Windows 10 and discovered that the it’s install came with the recent upgrades (that made my laptop sick) and I don’t have to worry about them trying to install and crashing my laptop again (I hope)

It took constant work, but after 24 hours from the time my laptop crashed it’s fixed. I hope this resolves the issues for another year or longer. I’ve had my laptop for around 3 years. I’m hoping I can keep it running and functioning for another year or two. Time will tell.

Wishing you all an issue free weekend.

Testing the WordPress App

Here’s Sheli-bean when he was trying out his new bed. He immediately liked it.
I thought it’d be perfect for trying out this app, in hopes I will like it too.

So far so good.

It’s 10:15pm 12-13-2017- I’m going to try to schedule this post for 12-14-2017 midnight and see if it works.

Wish me luck.


I couldn’t get the App to schedule this post nor could I edit it like I need too. Apparently there’s a step or two that I missed. I’m technologically-impaired, so don’t let my first attempt dissuade you from trying the app.
I went online and logged-in to my normal blog file manager to edit in some more content and finish this post and schedule it.

Anyhow, I suppose the app will be a peach for immediate posting. I realize there’s a learning curve and this first attempt doesn’t really make an educated guide to judge it by. I believe with practice the app might be quite handy. I plan to try it another day sometime.

Have you tried the WordPress app?
Did it work well for you?

Happy blogging!
