Where did they come from?

Odd referral links to this blog!

Why in the last few months am I seeing ‘odd’ or unrelated referral links to this blog in my Referral list that shows from whence people clicked to reach Jude’s Threshold? I’ve taken a chance and clicked on a few of them recently and see no reason why my blog is being ‘found’ from those sites which all seem to be selling something (like “cordless phones”, “sex”, etc.)

And none of the referring sites relate in the least to Astrology, Art, or Politics that I can determine. Am I missing something here?

Anyone know whas’up with the WordPress referral link feature and how this weirdness could be occurring?

WordPress says, Phone Your Blog!

Phone Your Blog suggests WordPress which is a very cool idea for sure.

Yet before I could do so, a groanworthy verse occurred…

i phoned my blog
but no reply
i held no phone
that starts with i

Yet if i did
i’d never phone
prefer to manage
on my own.


Even so, I may have to try this new WordPress feature later if I can think of a thing to say!

The Matrix has me, I just don’t know it yet

Early this morning @ 1:40 am est, I was here on WordPress trying to do some fancy blogging and having problems when suddenly the screen changed and a message was typed before my eyes which said, “Wake up, judecowell…the Matrix has you and you just don’t know it yet.” The WP logo was in the upper left corner of the screen.

Now if you, lone reader, have ever read a few of my posts here and especially at Stars Over Washington, you know that the NWO is one of my primary subjects and yes, I KNOW the Matrix has me and the rest of us, too. Cyber crime abounds from hateful, selfish people who prefer to go against society rather than aid it positively.

And yes, I’ve seen The Matrix films except for the last one.

So I’m wondering if anyone has an idea how I should proceed since a cowardly entity has taken over…and I assure you these words I type now are my own! Jude

Few WordPressers now using SpellCheck

After just reading WordPress’ remarks that few WordPress bloggers are using the SpellCheck feature, I wanted to leave a comment of explanation but couldn’t seem to do so. A message that I should Sign In appeared, yet I Was signed in. Sigh.

So here’s my excuse, or justification (however you want to look at it) for not using SpellCheck:

For months now my edit field with the task bar on top has been garbled up with icons displaying over one another. SpellCheck is one of the casualties – I can’t click on it because icons are in the way.

Have I missed using SpellCheck? You betcha!

Especially since I’m often posting on the run as I dash out the door – or it’s late, I’m fatigued, and the typo gremlins tend to mess with me most successfully then, the little dickenses.

Between that and my photos not being enlargeable in the last several months, posting on WordPress has become less enjoyable and more time consuming, sorry to say.

It seems that each time WordPress upgrades its functionality, my pc, browser, and brain have more problems posting, not less! (Probably it’s on my end though, not WP’s.)

Yes, I still adore my WordPress blog, but other hosts are ‘easier’ to publish on, check spelling, and upload images that can be viewed more closely which is especially important with Astrology charts and the chicken-scratch notations I tend to write upon them. The charts do little good if you can’t see them well enough to read them. And posting them in ‘Large’ size is Too Large.

Well, I’m not sure what to do about my WordPress spelling mistakes other than to triple-check things myself, but thanks a bunch for allowing me to vent…

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
