One step forward, two steps back in the WordPress realm. This morning it seemed so simple to get “random headers” code on the site, but as you see, it needs tweaking yet. And the tweakOR is not entirely up to the task. Seems I no longer can access my header file. Groan.
The Adsense panels are in place and visible TO ME now–a matter of white-listing the google syndication ads url in Kaspersky Internet Security. So hopefully, a few pennies may trickle in to pay toward the DSL and other associated blogging expenses. They also seem to be working again on Nameless Creek, a site I intend to get back to regularly–soon.
Got a couple of events to mention (and will likely repeat closer to the actual dates.)
On Saturday, August 18, I’ll be signing books while sitting on a bench custom made by Ron Campbell of Dream Catcher Meadows. Ron will be doing a woodburning or drawing during this same time, probably of the “Slow Road” barn. And apple butter will be slow-cooking too, all at the Houston’s Farm Store (aka Sweet Providence Farm) about five miles east of Floyd on 221. If you haven’t stopped by there already, you’re missing a new local destination worth a visit.
On Tuesday, September 11, I’ll be reading from and talking about the book at the Reynolds Homestead in Critz, Virginia. I’ll post details when they become available.
Folks coming up mountain to Floyd Fest 2007 this weekend, better bring your umbrellas. But don’t let a little drizzle dampen your good time.
And finally–to end this frazzled-morning potpourri post–can somebody tell me some good ways and reasons to use Twitter? I have an account, I just don’t have any known need or recipients of my potential twitterings. Maybe I’m missing something (like participation in the instant message / text message / chatting community?) A hammer’s not much good if you don’t have any nails, or reason to pound ’em in somewhere.
