Check your links in your profile 

This is an old post that I repost now and then. Some of you that press like button on my posts have blind links in your profile. When I want to check your blog by clicking the like notification I don’t find your blog! 

It don’t intend to start a how you blog section on this art blog, but I want to say this.

Check your link settings in your profile. Some of you have old links that doesn’t exists anymore. If you like one of my posts, then you show up in my notifications, from there I can reach your blog if you have a link that works. If you have an old link I end up with a wp message about links not leading anywhere any longer.

So before you complain about not having enough visitors, views, followers, likes and comments. Check your profile settings. People may actually not find your blog if you’ve got the wrong link in your profile/gravatar.

You find the settings here

  

  
And you check out which links you have in the settings here

  
You can try if your settings are ok by clicking your gravatar in any comment you made to see if that click leads you to your blog.

Have a great blogging day!

Common sea buckthorn – Havtorn


The dry summer didn’t stop the common sea buckthorn to make some berries this year. That is nice to see.


The Chantarelles have a hard time showing up this year. Too dry summer I think. The other day we found a few, so they maybe come around in bigger amount later if the rain comes back. We had some rainy days lately, so maybe we will find more Chantarelles.

If you wonder were I’ve been lately you can figure it out by looking at this


I’ve been away from the blogsphere far too long, but so much other things in life takes time too. As a comfort I know Ive not been selfish. I have spent time helping others both at work and in the free time. So it’s well spent time and not wasted time.

I hope to be back soon. I have more butterfly pictures and i want to do some new drawings  too, so I can show you. And I definitely want to read your blogs. I miss that reading right now.

Have a great day, evening, night or morning wherever you are 🙂

Anna

Another day away from blogging

Beat this stats!


With over 2000 followers of this blog it’s quite an achievement to get zero stats.

I don’t put in any weight in this. I know it happens when I’m not around here on wp.

In next post I will show you what I did instead of being here.

You decide if I made the right choice or not 😉

Anna

This happens sometimes


When I’m not here on wp as much as I want to, this happens. From way over 100 views per day to 2 views a morning after a away-from-wp-period.

That’s totally fair. Blogging is about interacting and if you’re not active or interactive you will receive zero stats or very small stats numbers.

I know how to increase the number of views, I just have to get time to do it.

When I have the time I will do this:

1. Make a post, hopefully one that is interesting to read.

2. Make sure I answer all your comments. Please let me now if you never get an answer, then your comment may have disappeared from my notifications.

3. Visit your blogs, like and also leave comments if I thonk I have something to say.

4. After a day or two I check stats and see that the number of views increased.

Then I start all over again.

When I only do one or two thing on the list I don’t get so much better stats. It’s when I do all four things I get fun stats numbers.

But the number is not what I’m here on wp for. It’s all of you. Meeting you in the comments are the upside of blogging. I learn so much from you. Thank you!

Anna

We are now over…

…2000 followers of this blog


That’s fantasy numbers for me. It’s all your doing. By sharing my posts, comment and like my posts and interact in every other way in the blogginf sphere you made those numbers. I’m not on any other social media, so it’s your sharing and interacting that draw new readers and followers to this blog. I just write the posts and try to interact with you as often as I can. It’s time consuming but very fun and delightful. Thank you all for being here 🙂

You are all stars in the blogging universe 

How did you find my blog and how do we find your blog? 

Leave your link in the comments if you want new readers to your blog 🙂

Anna

Wroom or Thunk?

That’s the question that pops up in my head when I read Dannys post and Jims post.

Is it all about speed? Or should we slow down and look up?

Check out their posts and then you get why I did this drawing.


Very often the comments from you five me drawing ideas when it starts to get weird or funny.

Like this from Jims post.


Anna

What a week!

The short ones are normal weeks. The tall ones are Save Trosa nature weeks on the this blog. I hope that means we are many that cares for nature.

Thank you all for being a part of following and sharing the series of Paradise in Earth pictures of Trosa nature that we are trying to save. The politicians and a big land owner wants to destroy nature in the name of money who goes to only one single pocket. The politicians can still rethink this madness and shift to saving nature thoughts instead. That would make them brave and the future citizens would be forever grateful I think.

Stats normally don’t mean a thing (if you ain’t got that swing 🎶🎵) when it comes to blogging. But when it’s about trying to convince politicians of saving Trosa nature the stats can have positive effects in the long run. You more we can show nature is something worth saving, the better. So then stats actually have a point.

Anna

How do I find you? 

Have you ever wondered how people find your blog?

I can tell you that most of the visitors on my blog comes from wp reader. You probably use the wordpress app on your digital device or use wordpress on your computer. If you find my blog posts in your reader, the stats says x views comes from wp reader.

If you happen to find my posts through reblogs the stats says from which blog. If someone has shared a link on fb the stats says fb sent visitors over to my blog if they click the link on the fb post.

If you read my blog through your browser the stats only shows views and visitors numbers.

Here’s a normal week stats


Here’s a boom! week where one of my Save Trosa nature friends did several linkbacks from a fb page


So, how do I find your blogs?

Very often I go there by clicking further on the notifications. I know, it’s a lottery for you to get the chance that I click further on your notification. If I see the notification when you liked a post and I have time to read blogs, you might get a visit from me. But if I don’t have time reading blogs after I posted the chance is big that the first numbers of likes go under the visible list before I can click further.

But if I post often you get new chances to be visible in the notifications and new chances for me to click further to get to your blog.


If you leave a comment on my blog or I leave a comment on your blog and you press like button on the comment, you get a bigger visibility in the notifications. Very often you are alone on such notification or share it with one or two others.


If I have enough time (when ever that happens???????) I go to my reader and check out new post from blogs I follow or blogs I don’t have yet discovered.

You maybe find my blog when I press like, leave a comment or two or press like button on comments. I probably show up in your notifications and you womder who on earth is this. Your curiosity takes over and you have to check out the blog I have 😉

Anna


I haven’t figured out why it says follow and follows (in Swedish följ och följer). I have pressed follow on almost every blog I had the chance to visit. I press that again and again on some blogs but it still says I’m not following. That’s weird.

Anna

 

Seriously, is this much? 

I have no idea if this is Boom! stats or not. But it is fun to get milestones. I don’t get milestones very often. When I had five followers and ten views a day I got milestones more often.

Anna

We did it :)

The new view record


That’s thanks to all of you who have visit the blog lately.

It’s also because I got some help from friends that shared some posts on fb.


I normally have zero from fb. I’m not on fb myself so that means very little sharing through that channel.

The number of views also comes from more posting than normal.


I post one or two times a day and some days I don’t post at all, so five new post or reblogs will increase the number of views.

So, the new stat record is not my doing, it’s all our doing by being interactive here in the blogosphere. 

Thank you for being here with me. It’s so nice and fun to speak to you all and reading your blogs 🙂

Anna

Six more views and we have a new record

We’re now at 263 views and the latest record is 268, so I think we’re gonna set a new record today 🙂

This is your doing, not mine alone. It’s a combination of number of posts in one day, the help from friends that link to the blog and my self interacting by visit, liking and comment on your blogs.

So thank you all for setting this record. This is our work together.

We’re not there yet, but by posting this I think we will make it.

It’s just a number though, don’t get hanged up on stats. Blog because it’s fun!

Anna

Sorry for not being here with you

I’m working on an Save Trosa nature assignment right now.

I will be back soon I hope. I miss you all 🙂


Anna

What’s your favourite milestone?

We’re now way over 1900 followers of this blog. We will probably reach 2000 too very soon.


The followers increase by a hundred each month if I’m interacting well. I can’t just leave the blog or you and believe that curve will continue up. I have to post, answering comments and visit your blogs and leave comment over there for this increase journey to continue.

It’s so fun meeting you all here and at your own blogs. I learn new things everyday. It feels like I’m traveling all over the world. 

What’s your favourite milestone?

I remember when I reached 100 followers. I didn’t think that was possible to reach for me. But it was!

Writing Advice

This apply on my blog writing too. I’m Swedish, so you will never read good English writing on my blog, just English writing with a little spellcheckhelp 😉 For comments visit original post at Jasons blog/Anna

HarsH ReaLiTy

Sometimes people email me for writing advice and I don’t give it. The reason is because my writing is very poor and I have been known to post anything. There are many bloggers that write perfect posts weekly. They spend time editing, editing again, and re-editing the editing they’ve done and I applaud that. We need great posts out there!

Then there is me.

I use my blog as a sounding board for what I am doing, thinking, or considering to think or do in the moment. It is my twitter, my facebook, my Myspace (hahaha), and my blog. I treat it that way and because of that I turn readers off daily who are looking for a professional blog. Some explanation for why my numbers are what they are.

People judge your blog off one post. You have one post to impress upon them what you are trying to…
