So, we have the new website and so far there isn’t a reblog feature on it that I have found, which is a drag. The people that do have the reblog feature on their WordPress.com blogs, also have the Press This button that you can drag to your browser to reblog anything on the internet. I copy and pasted this to share with people from the support pages so I could show you how it works. The links are also live that are in the article, so you can go and read more if you want to.
Jolynn and I were talking about using both this WordPress and the website. Katherine R. Blake, another author lady, was telling me that’s what she does. Plus Kathryn also hosts Saturday Spanks, so she’s a busy woman doing all the things she does all over the internet. We’ve worked hard to get this blog to be a place where people can come and visit, and learn new things and have fun. I put hot links as navigation pages to get back and forth from here to the website.
Also, I’m going to start up a store that will be hooked up to the website. I’ve started getting the Amazon links up, but they are not ready yet. When we have the Author Spotlight, there is a was to have the books on the page like Amazon does. There is also a store front that is compatible with WordPress and basically free for me to use for that purpose. People have wanted signed books for purchase, and with the store I can do that. I already have all the shipping stuff at our house for that.
Kayla Lords is the next one up for the Author Spotlight, and I need to get her post up and ready for everyone. I’ll let you know when it will be this week; good chance it will be Friday. Anyone who is an author is welcome to get a hold of me to be featured. I have a bunch of emails sent out to other authors, and I am waiting for their info for posts.
I just wanted to let people know that we are thinking of you, and are not forgotten. Stay tuned for more news soon.
Press This provides a lightning-fast way to grab text, images, or video from any website and post it to your blog without ever visiting WordPress.com. You can also use Press This to quickly share a link on your blog.
It only takes a second to get the Press This mini-application going. Simply go to Tools → Available Tools in your dashboard and find the link to the bookmarklet:
Next, drag the Press This link to the bookmarks/favorites area of your web browser. (It may look different than what’s pictured below, depending on your browser.)
That’s it – you’ve installed Press This!
Using Press This
Let’s say you come across a cool photography post, and you want to share part of it on your own blog.
Simply highlight the text you want to grab with your cursor, then click the Press This bookmarklet in your browser. A pop-up publishing window that will appear.
To add images, click the picture frame icon below the title of the post and select the photos you want. You can also add your own commentary if you like. If you have multiple blogs, use the drop-down menu to choose where to publish the content.
If you just want to quickly share a link to a website, without reproducing any of the content in your own post, just click the Press This bookmarklet while you’re viewing the page you want to share.
When you’re done, click Save Draft to save the post, or if you’re ready, hit Publish
