How many times have you created a blog post but realized that you needed a picture? Or, you have a great picture and had to create a blog post just so you could show it off?

I strong believe that whether you locate the picture first and create a blog post around it or create the blog post and hunt for a picture that it does not matter. Both are challenging and the result is the same.

For this short post I created the post for it then looked for the picture. I did not have a picture of a chicken and egg together. Nor did I have a live chicken I could do a quick photo shoot. So I decided to share a picture of a chess board. To me blogging is much like playing chess. It needs a strategy and the one with the best strategy wins the game!

Which order works best for you and why?

I was just thinking about the fact that I have not been blogging for a while. Yet, I am always encouraging others to blog. That is dishonest. How can I encourage others the take the time to blog while I have allowed soooo many other things to get in the way of my blogging?

Actually, I cannot beat up on myself too bad because life does get busy. Don’t you agree?

Sooooo, how is your blogging coming along?

Facebook-Hacked, Hacking and Help http://bloggingforboomers.com/hacked-hacking-and-help/ Fri, 14 Oct 2016 23:29:43 +0000 http://bloggingforboomers.com/?p=2039 Read more →

It’s been a great day full of excitement. I finally relax and decide to peek at my Facebook site. “Ah”, I say to myself, “John Doe is wants to be my friend.”. But then  in my tired haze I say, “But I thought he was already my friend?” I wonder if he has been hacked.?”

So, I go over to peek at his profile and notice that whereas, it has his picture, there are only a few posts up. “That’s not characteristic of John I say to myself, let me find his profile under my friends list.” Yep, I was right, there is the John Doe profile that is already my friend.There are a lot of posts. And on the last post is a note from him warning all his friends that he has been royally hacked.

He is apologizing to everyone and suggesting that we DO NOT ACCEPT HIM as a friend. I locate his phone number and call him the next day and he laments, “Why do people do this?” I don’t know I answer,feeling his frustration,” I just don’t know.”

What is a hack?

 

A hack is the use a computer to gain unauthorized access to data in a system. But is it always with the intent to harm? Are there well meaning hackers.

I read about some hackers who do it just to tell the network about flaws. Others for mean reasons. But I am sure that when it happens to you there is little concern with what is on their minds. Click this link to view a video on CNN about the mind of a hacker.

also,

Click this link to read an interview with a former black hat hacker.

What should you do if your Facebook account is hacked?

What you don’t want to do is jump off Facebook vowing never to return because your site is hacked. Just like you would not move out of your home if it is robbed you should take  the necessary measures to secure your account if you are hacked.

One of the best sources for finding out what to do is from Facebook itself. Click here to read what is Facebook says to do if you get hacked.

Are You a Blogger Thinking About Writing a Book? Try Using WordPress.com http://bloggingforboomers.com/are-you-a-blogging-thinking-about-writing-a-book-try-using-wordpress-com/ Mon, 24 Feb 2014 18:25:20 +0000 http://bloggingforboomers.com/?p=2016 Read more →

Are you a blogger thinking about writing a book but so busy blogging that you don’t seem to have time?

Or are you a baby boomer who finally has a few nano seconds and want to start on that novel but need to get organized?

Well, I am challenging you to “Blog Your Book”

I am posting a few articles in the next couple of days for resources to get you started. But let me know if you decide to start because I am going to join you and we can make it a BOOMER BOOK BLOG CHALLENGE.

The first resource is from WordPress.com’s support interface. It is, of course, comprehensive. And if you do not have a wordpress.com blog would be a good idea to start one to play with. My opinion is, however, is to shut it off from the search engines. But I am going to try this right along with you to see how it works. Ok, so lets get started by clicking the instructions below.

Blog Your Book using WordPress.com

Just when you though you had arrived in your blogging then you find that there is something more you need to know about WordPress and you get pulled back in. Well the fact of the matter is that we really never ever know all there is to know about blogging. At least that is my opinion.

That’s why I am going to sit in on some of this upcoming Web Camp by Armand Moran.

Now this training is not for the faint of heart. You must be willing to sit, get up, and sit again because it is for many hours over 3 days. That is why, although the training is free, if you want copies of the recordings that is where the price kicks in. Also, if you really like the training you can continue the learning by joining the monthly membership site.

But if your calender can be freed up for a couple of days and you have some great coffee, green tea or camomile you can hangout and refresh some points and learn other points. Also, if you are snowed in that will be the ultimate opportunity. So, think about coming to class again and Learn Boomer Learn.

Just click on the link below and find out more information.
