I’m Trying to Attract Your Attention

Published January 2, 2020 by Nan Mykel

So after 5 years I have less than 350 followers (and let’s face it, some are businesses).  So many have thousands.  Sure, they’re prettier than me and are more romantically focussed, and just maybe nicer, but hey, I was number One on Miami Jackson’s tennis team, doesn’t that count for anything?  Politics. Maybe that’s it. Just can’t keep my mouth shut when I’m speechless (heh heh).

I just tried out a new avatar–is it avatar or gravatar?–so maybe that will pull in one or two more of you wonderful people…

I’ll quit whining and hinting and tell you I just read my “Diary” page and enjoyed it.  Maybe someone else can also?

Good News About the Reader (I Think)

Published May 28, 2018 by Nan Mykel

My helper was over this evening and she showed me that all the blogs I follow ARE on my reader when they post!  When you get to the bottom wait a sec for the arrow thingy to slip back up and this can continue until the end of your list.  (Bethany, take note!)  There are just a few who live in other domains, I think, who can only post via e-mail.  There must be a place where bloggers can request to be on others’ e-mails.  Correct me, gang, if I’m off base.

UPDATE ON : The Reader–You Probably Knew This; I Didn’t…

Published May 26, 2018 by Nan Mykel

Concerning the following which I posted earlier, I learned that for updates on all the blogs I follow to appear on my Reader (instead of many on e-mail),  I must transition from .com to .org for $99.  Just thought you’d like to know.

____________________________

I recently dropped a number of sites I had been following because they hadn’t posted in a long time.  As I dropped well below 300 blogs followed, I discovered that not everyone on my followed list gets listed in my Reader when they post.  If that’s you I apologize. I checked everyone in my reader frequently, while entirely oblivious to others I thought I was actively following.

I wonder how many posts you can follow and they will all be covered via the Reader.

Always Apologizing, Me

Published July 9, 2017 by Nan Mykel

When I first started blogging folks were curious why I had trouble posting to d’Verse. I found out why: I was trying to post my poem from the page I wrote it on which wasn’t a page, I guess, but a dashboard.

I think I’ve discovered another innocent error involving my pages.  I have 15 or 16 pages and no one told me how to get material on those pages. So, when I come across something that I have a page for, I post it there and not on my main blog.  Even if I’ve re-blogged, I post it on the relevant page.  I’m going to pause in this post now and explore more about what and how I do it and maybe someone can tell me how I should do it. I’ll be back…

 

 

 

WAS BRIAN THE ONLY BLOGGER WHOSE…

Did I lose other followers?

I received the following from Brian today:

From owningitlog on About Nan Mykel

Nan,
Was your site hit by the recent hack, you disappeared from my Reader. I had to re-follow you. Please make a back up of all your posts, they are to valuable to be messed with.
-Brian

Thanks, I’ll ask folks. -Nan

A Post to Entertain You

Published July 6, 2016 by Nan Mykel

I’ve noticed that I’m stuck in the good company of poets who only visit me when I have a poem up my sleeve or somewhere, preferably on Dverse.  How did this happen?  What happened to the great population of octogenarians  who have nothing better to do than fiddle with  computer keys. Maybe they’re playing piano keys instead? Sorry, count me out. Musician I’m not, just as I’m not  lot of things….Republican, Spanish-speaking,  extrovert, yankee….I could go on and on, literally.  But you knew that, didn’t you!  So, does that mean you’re a bored curious poet just dropping by to see what I’m up to?  If so, welcome. If not, double welcome!caterpillar                                                                                                                                                                                       Edith Smith     http://www.Butterfly-Fun-Fact.com

 

THE YELLOW AND PURPLE CATERPILLAR

                                                                                                            (I’ve already gotten myself in trouble–killer?)…

Reminds me of Phyllis Diller

(especially due to her last name)

…this killer caterpillar–not caterpillar killer (you note the difference?)

was devouring an innocent leaf one night

when he saw an owl

also on the prowl.

Our killer said nnnnnnnnnnnnf

and the owl replied WHO?

Impatient, our killer yelled nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnf!!!

The owl on the prowl, you see,

not unlike you and me,

didn’t like sass so

bit him in the ass, leaving

only a purple caterpillar.

 

 

 

WHY MY ROYALTIES ARE MINISCULE

Published February 19, 2016 by Nan Mykel

I spoke recently at a Writers Fair in my home town. One of many presentations, it was videotaped.  Recently I reviewed the tape and to my surprise discovered that I make horible, gibbering faces when I address an audience. For example:

awfulface3

Really now, would you trust anything this shifty-eyed creature wrote?

Hehheh

Or this one?

I’m glad I’m blogging now instead of publishing books. This way, no one has to eyeball the real me.
