1.) WHAT IS MY THEME? I designed this theme myself with help from London artist Karen Ay.
2.) WHAT IS MY PLATFORM? I first published on BlogPress, which had proved inexpensive, easy and reliable for a beginner, and now on WordPress which is a little more robust, but which requires a little more expertise. As a beginner I learned to use it with “Make WP Easy” found at makewpeasy.com. BlogPress provided automatic backups, and I have a plug-in for backups on the WordPress site, called UpdraftPlus and another called Duplicate. Redundancy counts. My host is GoDaddy, because they provide fabulous support for people with moderate technical skills, like me.
3.) HOW DO I WRITE? I usually write late at night, meaning late late late when everything is quiet and dark. I center myself by not writing, but by thinking, sometimes just letting my mind wander for the first 10 or 15 minutes and somehow sneaking up on a topic until the first sentence ideas become clear in my mind. Then I put on the microphone and just start talking.
4.) WHERE DO I GET A CAPTCHA? For my contact form I use a plug-in called Gravity Forms, and this automatically inserts a captcha.
5.) WHAT IS MY TWITTER? I do not tweet at this time, sorry.
6.) HOW DO YOU GRAB MY R.S.S. E.T.C.? I’m sorry to say I am technically incompetent and can offer no advice about subscriptions, except to say thank you so much for asking, and if somebody would like to explain it to me feel free to write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
7.) WHERE DID YOUR COMMENT GO? I spend quite a bit of time moderating the comments, to make sure thoughts are on-topic, and expressed somewhat clearly and in fairly adequate English (the only language I am competent to review.) If I find the comment unintelligible I will not post it, nor will I post repetitive comments such as those about roommates buying lunch, poorly constructed comments from select-a-phrase forms, or some questions best answered here. That being said, I truly appreciate the vast number of comments contributed by my readers and encourage you all to keep up the good work.
8.) WHAT ABOUT GUEST AUTHOR CONTRIBUTIONS? If you are interested in contributing articles to my website, please contact me at email@example.com with information about the topic and potential length. Please attach a draft or completed article if you have them. If you are interested in having me author an article for you, you may also contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with proposed topic(s) and suggested terms. I am a research queen.
Keep up the good questions –
