To Test A Feature

To Test A Feature

Amended about an hour later. The feature I’m testing, which is theme specific, is the ability to piggyback a Youtube video and display it where a usually featured post or page graphic would reside. There’s a UI for volume on/off and a link through to view directly via YouTube. No big deal, but does suggest interesting possibilities.

Sure, I Could Lock Pick

It’s all about Flash Fiction Friction and routing what rubs. And to not go down those mean streets and avenues of alliteration. Or get too horny for the anti-hero hero’s honey buttering up to that square jawed government type that’s certain to trip wire the subject’s villainous layer.

Oh. OK. The vagaries of sharing those rite of passage post writ both large, and depending on one’s life experience, ironically small. What’s unique to you may better serve to inform readers about your take on a particular issue of the day.
( That being one of the reasons I disagree with you about reposting.)

I always found this an exceedingly difficult task. I’ve been both brutally honest, and technically guilty of deception by suggesting some post were fiction, when in fact they were factual. I guess I’ve also overshared, and that’s cost a bit.

Personally, I’ve always been a rite of passage poster. The vagaries of one’s back stories clue the interested and careful reader to the gist and concerns of the writer’s daily scribbles. (Which is why I disagree with you about reposting.)

And I’m honest to a fault in backdoor suggesting that many “bloggers” confronted with a rite of passage presentation that doesn’t feel prete-a-porter,
are quick to dismiss it as a naked lie, or at best a dressing down for commonplace sympathy.

It’s a big world. With many different paths, and multiple ways to stumble before one arrives.

  1. You know I don’t like the repost without an addendum…but I do get that people don’t like being confronted with the truth, and they don’t want to believe something someone posts….their view of the world is fixed. And I’ll wander a bit…someone posted a statement on my post the other day. I said we’d agree to disagree, because the statement didn’t jibe for me. They came back with ok but it’s the Bible. And I was sort of, I’m glad you find power and strength in that, but I don’t…to which they didn’t respond

    1. Sorry about the slow get back.

      Try this experiment. No don’t. It will be too time and labor intensive. And will mess with your forum. Do a thought experiment. Say you post a provocative thought provoking entry. At the end of the post explain to your readers that the comment thread is closed, but you would appreciate if they were to respond to your observations and questions by email via your contact page.

      First? How many would do so? Second. How different would private replies vary from their everyday public offerings.

      For the first two years my website readers could only respond to me, to due Web 1.0 technical limitations, via e-mail.

      There are two types of internet users, LA. Those who respond to the author of a post/forum and those who respond to the peer-pressure of the group.

      The lady who Bible bounced you. She’s certain to share that she stood up for God. Social Media is never about direct individual communication. It’s about brand. And brand is about product. And the product is a selling of a group corral-ing disguised as individual empowerment and agency.

      Ya had your say…didn’t ya?

      1. Well, if she’s going to throw a quote at me, she should at least practice what she preaches…😉
