Success!

Yay! The website is secure again! I just want to give a shout out to Go Daddy! I love their tech support staff. Whenever I call, I get an actual person who is not only friendly, but really does know what they are talking about!

Nothing is more annoying than talking to tech support about an issue and then discovering that you know more than they do… especially when you know virtually nothing. That has happened to me at Mcafee and AT&T, but it has never happened to me at Go Daddy. So! Go Daddy is the best!

It’s About Time!

Suddenly, almost a month ago, my mobile broadband device blew up. I tried to get it replaced by calling Sprint, but interestingly, they couldn’t help me if I couldn’t verify my account via email… which I couldn’t access with no internet… not to mention we are in the middle of a pandemic and on lock down…

Anyway, lots of stuff happened… hours of bitching… sitting on hold… cussing… bitching… whining and complaining… more stuff happened… on hold for hours and hours…  trips to the Sprint store… bla bla bla…

Finally… 3 1/2 weeks later, a not quite right but usable mobile broadband device has made its way to my house and I have internet again… so YAY!

And now I will be blogging like a madwoman. Have fun exploring all the new stuff! Which I will be posting asap! The links to all the new posts will show up here as they are published. Stay tuned!

So far these are new posts at the Book of Shadows , Magickal Ingredients, Magickal Apothecary, The Aromatic Healers, Eating To Live , Feathers and Bones, Way Cool Pictures, More Cool Pictures, and Cool Beans.

Ok… I have run out of time in my day. So I will leave you all with a couple of new and hilarious memes over at Meme City. Have fun!

Searching The Site

I have been trying to figure out how to have universal search widget so that I can search the entire site, but with no success. And then I had an idea. I asked Google to do it. I was looking for magickal information that I had posted about popcorn. I remembered posting it, but I couldn’t find it. So, I put shirleytwofeathers popcorn into a Google search. And this is what I found:

    So, I was going through the posts here on ShirleyTwofeathers, looking at everything that was still in draft form. Doing a little housekeeping, and I found this video.

Turns out, the post I was looking for was the Popcorn Day post over at the Pagan Calendar. So, that was a lot easier than going site by site looking for “popcorn.”

Then, I thought I’d try it with something different and see what happened. Since I am having to go back to work this week, I put the following into a google search: shirleytwofeathers “back to work” and this is what Google found:

Issues and problems with this method:

Unfortunately, not ALL of the posts show up, for example, the popcorn post on Eating To Live wasn’t in the first 2 pages of the Google search, although the original post on the old Gypsy Magic Blogger Blog was right there. I’m not quite sure why Google doesn’t like Eating To Live.

Also, in my original search, a post about popcorn over at Meme City was in the top three, but it didn’t come up at all when I redid the search. So, I wonder what’s up with that?

Anyway…

If you happen to use this method and find it useful, I’d love to know. And if you happen to use this method and find it to be totally useless, I’d also love to know. 🙂

And if anyone who reads this knows of a widget or plugin that would work more efficiently than Google, let me know!

Support This Site

I’m sure that my regular visitors have noticed that the site has been running really really slow lately. That’s because we have exceeded our bandwidth and our storage resources. As a result, I had to upgrade the site to a larger (and more expensive) hosting plan. So…

Happy news! The deed is done, and we shouldn’t have any problems for a quite a while. On the down side, I am now looking for ways to pay for the upgrade that do not include annoying and invasive advertising. Right now, this website is ad free… I’d like to keep it that way!

So, if you love this site, and want to support it, you can! And it’s easy. Just visit my new RedBubble  shop: Magick Mama, and even if you don’t buy anything, at least you can like or share the designs that you think are cool. The more visitors I have, the more likes I have, the easier it is for people to find my designs and if I can get a decent amount of sales, that would really help with the costs of this website.

New Stuff ~ Go Check It Out!

Check it out! We have a whole new page of cool new stuff. The Art Page is now open for business, and totally revamped. I love how it looks, and some fun new stuff to explore. Currently we have the following new art sites:

  • Cool Beans
    A nifty little site dedicated to all things art, art projects, and anything I find that is interestingly creative.
  • Coloring Pages
    These are the same coloring pages that are also featured on the Fun Page.
  • Go With The Flow
    A gallery of abstract art created by shirleytwofeathers.
  • Graffix
    A super cool collection of graphics, icons, banners, dividers, and seamless background textures.

I hope you find something fun and interesting!

Three New Things!

We have three new mini sites up and running. How fun is that?

Over on the Fun Stuff pages, we have It’s A Cat Astrophe. Cats are what the internet was made for, don’t you know? So Come on over for lots of feline fun. It has memes, art, funny and cute pictures, stories, lore and lots of other cool stuff. Enjoy!

In the Healing Outside the Box section, we have Alternative Therapies. It’s an eclectic collection of different healing modalities and techniques. It might be worth checking out, who knows, you might find something interesting and useful!

But Wait ~ There’s More! Yes, it’s Totally Random. Who knows what you might run into on that little mini site. It’s full of odds and ends, useful and totally useless ideas and information.

A Small Adjustment

I have added a drop down menu to the nav bar at the top of all the main pages. It’s just a small tweak, I know, and I think it makes everything easier to find. So, now I am really feeling antsy about getting all the main areas up and running. There is so much good stuff, and I just can’t get it uploaded fast enough… sigh.

Great News!

LOL!

The spam issue has been resolved and comments are once again enabled. I’d love it if you’d take the time to leave a comment, even just a word or two, so that I can test to see if it’s working properly for “real people.”

Something New!

The Spirituality page has been upgraded and we now have three new mini-sites open for exploration. If you’re interested, go check them out!

I still have quite a bit more that I’m wanting to put here, but there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Still to come are: Gospel Missionary Message, Loving Ganesh, and maybe one or two more. If only there were 3 of me… but sadly, I have not figured out how to accomplish that one!
