This is an update on some comments going to my WordPress SPAM FOLDER. I addressed this 5 days ago and if you haven’t read the post or you just want to refresh in your mind what I’ve said, you can read the post by clicking HERE

To those who are going to my SPAM FOLDER and are wondering why? Let me try to explain. I’ve been getting SPAMMED by certain sites and from what I’ve been seeing WordPress SPAM Filter is not only putting the sites in SPAM but other sites with part of the same URL.

What Do I want from you? I need all of you to patient and bear with me please. Another thing I ask of you especially those getting Spammed please don’t keep commenting me What? If you have a legit blog I will find that out when I check out your site. If you…

#Bullying, #Depressing News, #Be Positive

Everyone has their routine and something tells me watching the news falls in your routine somewhere. If it doesn’t, you’re lucky because the news is usually depressing anyway unless you have something like Royal wedding or a bunch of ducklings being rescued from a sewer drain and reunited with the mother duck(which actually did happen).

In my part of the world(don’t know about yours) the news is talking about bullying, sexual assault accusations, Trump canceling and un-canceling the summit with North Korea,  a lot of protesting over blacks getting shot and even more depressing news which I’m not going to list. I’m not trying to be mean but if you don’t follow commands you might get shot.

#BULLYING

#Bullying is very real. Bullying not only happened when I went to school and it happened a lot. Only Back then it wasn’t called bullying it was called being picked on continuously. Today some children that are bullied they take what they think the easy way out which is suicide. Also, please note that bullying can lead to sexual assaults. I found 2 flow charts on dealing with bullying. Actually, the charts deal with bullying and suicide. The charts are below. Please note that most of the time  the percentage of girls who thought about suicide and/or attempted suicide is higher than the boys.

#DEPRESSING NEWS

#Depressing News is very real. I hate to say it but if you watch the news then your bound to come across depressing news daily. Actually, my solution to this problem is simple don’t watch the news. Oh I know what your probably thinking how am I supposed to find out the weather? Ever hear of a smart phone or a computer. Most of you have a smart phone and/or computer so check the weather that way. I found a link online that sends me Weather Updates twice a day, Amber Alerts(if there are any), Weather Alerts when warnings and/or watches are issued for the county I live in( which is Butler County), I get notified when there are recalls and so much more. I love this link.

#POSITIVE SOLUTIONS

#Positive Solutions is actually very simple.  I’m sure there are more positive solutions than what I’m going to list but if you think of additional solutions that’s great. Also, please feel free to let me know by using the contact form or comment form below my solutions.

MY SOLUTIONS FOR BULLYING

  1. Don’t bully anyone yourself.
  2. Try to prevent bullying before harm comes to either party.
  3. Keep encouraging your child or young adult and encourage the person who’s doing the bullying and you might see a change but there’s never any guarantees.
  4. Stay positive and give a friendly smile no matter what you’re feeling about the person.
  5. If you know that someone is think about committing suicide, GET THEM HELP RIGHT AWAY!!
  6. Learn the signs of someone wanting to commit suicide. One main sign is:
  • When they start giving their stuff away for no reason.

MY SOLUTIONS FOR DEPRESSING NEWS

  1. Don’t watch it.
  2. Only watch the non-depressing news(if there is any).
  3. Focus on the positive.
  4. Repeat 1, 2, & 3.

 

 

WEBSITES REVIEWING OTHER WEBSITES…

bloggif_5b2d8c838fbd4

INTRODUCTION

WARNING, WARNING!!!! Now that I got your attention let me welcome and say hello to everyone. Did you know there was a website that reviewed other websites to see if they were legit, to see how trustworthy they are, to check the reputation, to check the privacy, to check the safety and to check how safe it is for children. Then they give you a scorecard. 

WHO DOES THIS?

I found out that Google does this. 

 HOW DO I KNOW THIS?

I actually found this out by accident. You see one night I had put in to Cortana my WordPress Dashboard address and in the suggestions  this site popped up.  What is the site address that checks other sites? It is https://easycounter.com/report/ and the site you want to check. For example if I wanted to check WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING), I would use http://easycounter.com/report/daisymae2017.wordpress.com to count the views and any other countable data for google searches. Yes I said Google searches. Can you believe they count Google searches?

WHAT ARE THE PROS OF KNOWING THIS?

The pros of knowing about this website are: 1.) You can check your website(s) or anyone else’s 2.) You can check the General Data of any website 3.) You can check any website’s Audience 4.) You can check any website’s Traffic Analysis 5.) You can check any website’s Subdomains 6.) You can check any website’s SEO Stats 7.) You can check any website’s Domain Data 8.) You can check any website’s Social data 9.) You can check any website’s Server Info and finally 10.) You can check any website’s Safety(this just shows how safe the website is).

WHAT ARE THE CONS OF KNOWING THIS?

In my opinion, I think what could be considered as Pros could also be considered Cons too. Why? I can answer that question in one word — PRIVACY.

IS WORDPRESS AWARE OF THIS SITE?

The answer to that is they are now. When I contacted WordPress and explained my situation, they told me they were surprised to find out that there were other websites that actually checked to see if your website was legit. I asked what can I do and they asked me with what WordPress features? I told them and they told me unless I upgrade to their Business Plan(which I don’t need at this time) that is where the plugins are at. I did find out that I wasn’t optimized with Google. They weren’t happy about that. Can’t please everyone.

WHAT DO I EXPECT YOU TO DO WITH THIS INFORMATION?

I do hope you read this post. It’s up to you what you do with the information given to you. It’s like the saying say: You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink.
