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.

500 Followers

Wahoo, Wahoo I’m really excited because WordPress just notified me that I had achieved 500 followers. I’m way ahead of my goal. Let me explain. You see my goal was to achieve 200 followers by January 1, 2019. on WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING) Today is May 11, 2018 so I’m way ahead of my goal.

Thanks to all my readers and followers for helping me achieve this goal.

SORRY

Hi everyone, I’ve been having technical problems AGAIN!! I got a new theme for both of my blogs WELCOME TO CRYSTAL’S SITE(ORIGINALLY COUNTRY LIVING)and CRYSTAL AND DAISY MAE’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE and now no notifications, Like Buttons or Sharing Buttons. I hope WordPress gets it fixed soon. I’m here to ask you kindly to please check out my projects. Click on the words All Projects then above my header which is Daisy Mae for both sites. When you click on All Projects squares will show up. How many squares will be a ? because it’ll depend on how many projects I have on each blog. My new theme supports testimonials but I won’t enable that until I get some. Once the squares come you’ll see the featured images. Go to the one you want to view and hopefully WordPress has the Sharing and Like Buttons there so you can Like and Share. If by some chance you got notified my project was published last night and you saw nothing, I really am sorry for that. I do hope you check my projects out. I sure would appreciate it.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AND UNDERSTANDING.

Types Of Bullying And The Possible Solutions To Stop Bullying

stopbullyingIntroduction:

You Should Kill Yourself. You’re Weird. You’re Different. You’re Not Pretty. You’re Not Handsome. You Can’t Do That. Your Stupid. The list goes on and on. Got your attention? I hope so because with the way technology is now days bullying happens more than we think. Another thing we should consider is that boys aren’t the only ones that bully but girls bully kids too.

Graphic Is By: forfreepsychology.wordpress….

These phrases could be considered bullying. Which type of bullying? The phrases I have listed in the Introduction fall into the Verbal Bullying and Cyber-Bullying categories. Are these the only two types of bullying? Sadly no. In fact, there are six types of bullying that can happen. The six types of bullying are: Physical Bullying, Verbal Bullying, Relational Aggression, Cyber-Bullying, Sexual Bullying and Prejudicial Bullying. I will be taking a look at each type of bullying, Giving examples of each type of bullying and I will also give visual examples of each type of bullying too.

Types Of Bullying

Physical Bullying:

Physical Bullying is considered to be the most obvious form of bullying. Physical Bullying happens when the more popular kids are bigger, stronger and more aggressive than the unpopular kids. Examples of Physical Bullying are Kicking, Punching, Slapping, Shoving and Other physical attacks that occur. Unlike other types of bullying, Physical Bullying is the easiest type of bullying to identify.

Relational Aggression:

Relational Aggression is a sneaky type of bullying that usually goes unnoticed by parents and teachers. This type of bullying is sometimes referred to as emotional bullying. Relational Aggression is a type of social manipulation where the people who are the bullies try to hurt their peers or sabotage their social standing. Examples of Relational Aggression are: Being told they can’t be in a group, People spread rumors about them,  People manipulate situations and They try to break confidences.  The bully’s goal is to make themselves look good-by controlling or bullying another person.

If we take a look at both females and males, you will usually find that females use Relational Aggression more than males.  A person on the receiving end of Relational Aggression Bullying is often teased, intimidated, insulted, excluded and ignored.

Bullying doesn’t just happen in schools but can happen in the workplace too. Kids as young as 2 years old can start to bully other kids. Why does bullying start so young and how does it develop? I learned that bullying is something that just doesn’t suddenly or mysteriously appear in young children. In fact, children bring with them a history of experiences with family, media and other children.

Cyber-Bullying:

Cyber-Bullying is when a person uses the internet, smart phone or other types of technology to target another person, threaten, harass or embarrass someone. Cyber-Bullies often say things they don’t have the courage to tell them face to face. Examples of Cyber-Bullying are: When a person sends nasty e-mails or text messages, Posting nasty and embarrassing pictures on social media, videos and websites.

Sexual Bullying: 

Sexual Bullying is when a person or group of people targets someone sexually. Examples of Sexual Bullying are: Sexual Name Calling, Crude Comments, Vulgar Gestures, Uninvited Touching, Uninvited Sexual Advances and Pornographic Materials. In some cases Sexual Bullying can lead to sexual assault and possibly rape.

I know for a fact that this type of bullying actually does happen and to boys too not just girls. I know a teacher who knows a child that has had Sexual Bullying happen to him. I’m not naming the child or teacher due to privacy and security issues. But do note that this type of bullying happens more than you think. Also, this type of bullying is not just in schools but the workplace too.

Prejudicial Bullying:

Prejudicial Bullying is mostly between teens. It is based on race, religions and/or sexual orientations. It is sad to say this can take in all other types of bullying. When this type of bullying occurs it is often severe and could lead to hate crime.

 6 Common Types Of Bullies

Bully Victims:

Bully Victims often rise up after being bullied. They’ll bully others weaker themselves because they have been bullied themselves. Their goal is to regain the power and sense of control in their lives. Other times the bully victim comes from a home life riddled with domestic violence or suffers abuse from an older sibling. In cases like these bullying is a learned behavior.

Popular Bullies:

Popular Bullies have big egos.  Popular Bullies also have a group of supporters and/or followers. They are often confident and condescending towards others. In fact, Popular Bullies often feel a sense of entitlement that comes from their popularity, their size, their social status and their upbringing. Popular Bullies are sometimes the school’s star athlete and is often looked up to by others since they’re perceived as leaders.

Relational Bullies:

Relational Bullies are usually somewhat popular and enjoys deciding who is popular and who isn’t. Often times Relational Bullies usually only use Verbal and/or Emotional Bullying to control someone. Mean girls are considered to be Relational Bullies.

Serial Bullies:

Serial Bully is systematic, controlled and calculated in their approach to bullying and they are often found in popular circles. However, adults such as parents, teachers and administrators usually have no idea what a Serial Bully is capable of because on the outside they may seem sweet and charming to authority figures but on the inside they can be very mean to others they don’t like. Examples of Serial Bullies are: They become fake friends to others and They are skilled at lying to get their way.

Group Bullies:

Group Bullies are either part of a clique or a group that just follows the leader just to belong. However, they usually act different when they’re alone even with the victim. Because children feel better when they’re in a group, they also feel less responsible because all their friends “are doing it”.

Indifferent Bullies:

Finally, I found in my research that Indifferent Bullies are unable to feel empathy. They often will appear, unfeeling, cold and have very little remorse for what they do. They get enjoyment out of seeing someone else suffer and getting disciplined. They are discouraged by punishment. Also they are usually brutal, cruel and mean and usually have psychological problems.

Bullying

By: Crystal Stewart

Bullying is a mean way to

Gain power over a person

Who is weaker than the bully.

Although bullying happens more 

Often than reported, walking away

And reporting it are the best solutions

To bullying and hope anyone in a

Bullying situation will do exactly this.

My plea to everyone is don’t bully but 

Treat the bully with extreme kindness

And they will wonder why you are being

So kind to them when they are

Being mean to you.

So be extra kind to bullies.
