Patricia Spork Update – August 1, 2017

Hi!

Sorry for being negligent blogging.

I’ve started a video channel: Patricia Spork “sporkplodes”. New at creating and editing videos, so going through the learning process. Published the first video today, an introduction about the channel and me. If you watch the video, you’ll see I’m an ‘ol country bumpkin and not a presentation speaker.

I’ll embed some “sporkplodes” on this blog, which may turn into a vlog. Those videos will be themed for this blog.

If you have any suggestions for services I can use for creating interview podcasts or videos, leave a comment or contact me using the online form.

If you’d like to be interviewed, let me know.

Check with you again later.

New Pages and Other Goodies

Hi, All!

I’ve added new pages for legalities, a contact form and contributor information. If you read any of those pages before today, then please read them again…several have been tweaked.

Added social media share buttons and a follow button.

Decided Creative Commons license will not apply to this website.

Hope you’ll let me know if you have any problems using the site, so I can correct anything that’s not functioning properly.

I’m open to any suggestions for improving the site.

Next post should be on site’s theme. Oh yah!

Bye, for now!

About and Spammy-Yammies

Hey, hey, hey…got a little bit done today.

Surprised to see I had pages and pages of member subscribers to the blog. Doofy me forgot to untick that anyone could register, so the spammy-yammies had a field day. Sorry if you were a legit member, especially since subscribers were deleted. But you can now subscribe to the updated feed via RSS reader or subscribe for updates delivered by email. Subscription options are in the right sidebar. Of course, you can bookmark the site and check-in at your convenience.

Posted an “About” page. If you have time, read it. More pages will be added before I can get into the heart of this blog.

Changed the theme several times and may do again. Hang in there as I waddle through set-up.

Stay tuned!

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses (Positive and Negative)

Excuses, Excuses, Excuses (Positive and Negative)

You may be wondering why this site is not further along with content, so let me provide some negative and positive excuses:

    • Several family deaths and illnesses (negative)
    • Holiday travel (positive)
    • Electricity outage spanning several days (negative and positive)
    • Other work deemed more important (positive)
    • Personal health issues (negative)
    • Procrastination (negative and positive)
    • Indecisiveness (negative and positive)

Hey, but I did get the SSL certificates installed with no major complications. Oh yah! That’s a cool positive in the right direction, huh?

Anyhoo, the plan is to work on site next week…to complete set-up. A myriad of things (negative and positive) could delay me, so don’t hold your breath.

On another positive note, my great-granddaughter cut her first tooth, with a second breaking through the gums. On a negative note, my daughter ran over a wild boar, which damaged her new car, but thankfully, she did not wreck (Another positive!).

Final thought: Don’t let excuses excuse you from responsibilities, even though some deadlines may not be met on time, and always look for the positives when confronted with negatives in life

Apology and Purpose of this New Blog

Hello, Friends, Family and Visitors!

First, I apologize to anyone that no longer has interviews or book reviews showing on my site. I’ve hosted my domain on a new platform, mainly for expense budgeting reasons. I thought of merging everything over here, but the old location was a mess of old files and I was beginning to believe the site had been compromised. The best thing I thought to do was to start fresh, especially since I wanted to go in a new direction with the blog. If you do need a particular interview or book review, there are ways of locating archived sites on the Internet or you can contact me for assistance. No contact form online yet, but should be up within the next few days.

The purpose of this blog is to express my personal opinions about current news events and about how journalists are reporting (or not reporting) the news. I don’t intend to name journalists or publications. I mainly want to focus on word usage, misspellings and important topics deemed less relevant within the content of certain articles.

Still setting up the blog, so be awhile before I get into the swing of things. Hope you stop by again to see my progress.

Thanks, for stopping by!

Patricia
