Guest Writers?

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Q: Do you offer guest writers to write content for yourself? I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome website!

A: At this time, I do all the writing for the articles on this site myself. I would like to hear your thoughts on the subjects I write on.   Please post any thoughts you have on the comment sections at the end of each article.  I would also be interested in seeing others give answers to questions that have already been posted.  That, too, can be done by clicking on the ‘comment’ icon on the bottom of each article or question.

Website Set-Up

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Q: Great discussion and I appreciate your input. Quick question. We are making plans to install wordpress ourselves. Can you point out a good resource for templates and the best plug ins to make it easy for staff to update content in a nice user friendly way? Thx in advance.

A: I had to poll my husband for the answer to this question because I am technologically disadvantaged (which should answer your question about your staff updating content).  We got our wordpress templet through They have free templates and everything you need to set up your site.  Our website hosting is through Voda Host. They offer several website builders along with a video for setting up websites. These websites come with the wordpress blog at no additional cost. He tells me it was quite simple to set up. They have a forum page to ask questions on how to do things and to see what other people do. All that was necessary to set up our wordpress was to add our logo, the pull down options, and contact information.


Website Use

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Q: How cans I begin own post?

A:  If you have a question or discussion you would like to begin, just click on ”Contact Mom”.  The question goes directly to me.  I edit it for profanity or other issues not appropriate for this type of site.  Then I post the question or comment with my answer.  Once it is posted, anyone can respond by making a comment in the section provided below the post.  If you just want to respond to a post already made, just type your response in the comment section below the post.  These comments also go through the administration page to check for content.  I try to check each day for new questions and comments so that answers can be made in a timely fashion.  Once I’ve checked for profanity and advertisements, I simply check ”approve” and your comment is posted under the original question.

Website Plans

Q: Do you plan related posts in this journal?

A:   If I receive a question, I post an answer.  I allow anyone who wishes to respond to a post to do so through the comment section.  All responses go through the administration page so I can edit out profanity and unrelated advertisements.  Some advertisements I allow if they are related to the question posted.  For instance, the question on prom dresses has a comment posted advising people to check out a prom dress website.  I allowed that because it was pertinent to the question.

Doubting Thomas

Wednesday, July 13th, 2011

Q: My friend and I have a bet.  He’s naive and gullible.  He actually believes you are a mom.  I say you are just some yahoo with a god complex trying to tell everyone what to do.

A:  Sorry.  You lose.  I am a mom with 6 adult children, 9 grandchildren and 2 step-grandchildren all of whom are alive, well and wonderful.  As for the god complex, I already know I don’t know everything.  That’s why this forum allows others to give their opinions as well.  I feel that it’s always good to hear from someone who has been there.  And just in case you don’t recognize your comment, I’ve cleaned up the wording to make it fit for family viewing.  This is a site where anyone can come for advice.  Try to keep it clean.  Okay?
