Well, I don't have any pressing issues on my mind, so I guess I'll just do one of my little boring posts where I never get anywhere and just bore people to death. Under "Labels" this is "Just Blogging".
OF COURSE! I know what I can do! I've noticed that a lot of people don't comment or anything else on my blog. So maybe it's just because my readers don't know how! Well I'm going to give you a list of things that you can do on my blog. Here we go!
1) Posting Comments
Comments are awesome. They let me know that people actually read this thing and if I'm typing anything worth reading. Putting a comment on Droll Digression is easy and encouraged. Here's what you do:
AT the bottom of every post (that's where I'm talking and stuff) there are some links (green words that get underlined when you scroll your mouse over them). One of them will have a number (probably zero) and then the word "comments" click on that link. You will be taken to a screen that is pretty blank, but doesn't have to be intimidating. On the right of the screen is a box that says: "Leave your Comment" - type your comment in here. Then you sign your comment. There are three options:
1. your Blogger display name - if you have a blog on Blogger you can sign with that.
2. Other - way more fun. You can say that your name is King Arthur of Camelot and no one will ever know that it's you.
3. Anonymous - very popular. Listen, it might seem fun and mysterious, but it's WAY over-done. But hey, you can use it.
THEN all you have to do is click the orange button that says: "Publish your Comment", and BOOM! you've made my day!
Also, to the left of the Comment screen you can read other comments left by other readers.
So practice right now. It's not hard, and then you'll know for certain that you CAN do something on the computer. It'll make your day and mine. I can't wait to hear about your experience!
The next thing I'd like to talk about is the Survey.
On the main screen of Droll Digression (you know, where all of the posts are and you can read my title and everything) the first thing to your right that you will see is a survey (currently on pets). Lots of people have already gotten the hang of the Survey (also known as a poll), so I guess there isn't much to say on the subject. Just click your answer and then hit "Vote". I REALLY like it when people do this, because I get to know my reader's better AND I know that someone actually visited my blog.
Some other things you might be interested in are:
THE SAFETY DANCE!!! - Watch this awesome video from the stone age - well, no, I guess that's the Middle Ages
Places I think You'll Like - These are the websites that I like, share, and forget about. They're pretty cool. You should try them
and DUH... About Me - You can learn weird stuff about me - like that I'm paranoid.
There'll also be stuff popping up off and on, such as Next-Door-Neighbor's Cousin's favourite quote.
So anyway, there's lots of things for you to do on here.
OH YEAH! I forgot to mention Search, my Blog Archive and the Lables. These are all things that will help you find what you're looking for on here. To search for a specific word in any and all of my posts, simply go to that grey bar up there at the top of your screen and to the left. Type in the word and hit Enter. It's easy.
BLOG ARCHIVE - This sorts out my posts by date. It works automatically - don't worry.
LABELS - this gives you all of the different catagories I put my posts under, so that you can look up specific subjects that I've talked about in the past.
I guess that's about it. Like I said, keep coming back for more stuff.
Thanks for reading!!!
