Whether you’re new to this blog or not I want to point out some things that maybe you don’t know about or maybe you haven’t ever paid attentiontoo. Whatever the case these things can be useful to you, or at least I hope they will.
Let’s start with our pages. Note: if you know about any of these tips and tricks already you can skip the appropriate heading/headings. Other wise have a look.
1. “about the living blind blog” page
theabout the living blind blog page lists the schedule that we may or may not stick to for posting. As well as how we got started and who we are. You can find it at the top of our site. It should be the first link you come to besides home. As well as at the link above. So go have a look.
2. the contact us page
the contact us page list everyone’s contact information. Want to only get in touch with one person? Fine! Just find the contact information for the person you wish to contact and go from there. Want to contact everyone at once? Find the links to our twitter, facebook, and email. Then, click on them. Just remember that everyone on the team can see whatever you write so don’t write anything you wouldn’t want multiple people to see. Note: if you want to contact us about guest podcasting, or writing for or with us for example this is the way to do it. You can find this information at the link above, or if you’re traveling via links it should be the second link on the page.
3. Favorite blogs and websites
Our favorite blogs and websites page is a great way to obtain information. Want some ideas for shopping sites? We’ve got them. Want helpful articles for yourself, or someone else? How about helpful guides and tutorials? We’ve got them. Are you searching for blogs that have to do with disabilities like blindness, or autism? We’ve got some of these too. Simply put this page is a list of our favorite websites, or sites that we think could be useful in some way. You can navigate this page by heading which includes: shopping, education and help, blogs, and other. If you can’t find what you’re looking for get in touch and we’ll do our best to add it. If you would like us to inclue your site, but don’t see it after looking for this page get in touch and we’ll do our best to add it. this link is the third link down not counting home.
the podcast page appears to be broken. Our apologies. When it works it will list all of our podcast eppesodes. By the way if anyone knows how to fix this could you please get in touch? Thanks! It can be found at the link above, or it should be the last link on the page.
5. widgets: subscribe to us, archives, and categories
Our widgets are a great way to explore the site. The “subscribe to us” widget allows one to receive our blog post via email. Note: this includes everyone’s posts and it is not category specific. While our categories widget lets one go through all the articles in a particular category. Want to know what I was writing about a year ago, or even six years ago? Check out the archives widget.
6. Search our site.
Search our site allows for a user of this site to search for keywords. So if you’re looking for a particular post just type in what you remember in the edit box. Then, hit the okay button. Once the page loads you will be given a list of results to choose from.
Want to only read posts from a particular author? Would you rather receive only posts from a particular category? Then followistic is for you. Just click on any post from the author or category that you want to receive posts from, scroll down to the comment section, enter your email address, check the box for the one you want, and you’re set Although, you might have to press a button or something. Other wise your settings probably won’t be saved. LOL
8. Things that may or may not be recent, and our twitter
Should you wish to view only the most recent posts go to the heading that says “Things that may or may not be recent” Fair warning though, they may not be very recent. Hence the title of the widget. LOL.
Should you want to view our twitter feed skip to the heading that says “our twitter”. There you can read a list of our most recent tweets.
Most of these things are easy to get to if one is willing to look. The only one that may be tricky to find is followistic. I mentioned the podcast page only because someone emailed me recently to tell me it was broken. If you have any more questions feel free to let me know. Other wise happy surfing!
