Wesley Chapel, Florida (high 73, low 42- what??? did I read that correctly?)
The cold front that is bringing a blizzard to the northeast, brought us some rain early this morning. It rained hard for a few minutes, then it was gone. That’s the kind of storm I like.
I always like to start my blog with our location and temperature. When I checked my Weatherbug app this morning for a weather report, I was sure surprised to see a predicted low tonight of 42 degrees. I had to remind myself that we are tough now that we survived 17 degrees in the mountains!
I like knowing the weather when I read other blogs, because I want to know when to stay away from certain parts of the country! When they say they are having beautiful warm weather in February, and I find out it’s only 50 degrees and that’s the norm, then I know I don’t want to winter there! I also like being able to look back on my blog and remember what the temperature was on a certain date.
I always list our location for readers who may not read my blog regularly and have no clue where we are located. I find it frustrating when I read a blog in which they mention some great place to see or a wonderful campground, and I have no idea what state they are in. I find myself scrolling back blog post after blog post to get my answer. Or….sometimes, I give up.
Anyway…. we’re supposed to have a few days of cooler weather but after tomorrow we’ll be back in the 70’s during the daytime. We’re planning a trip up to Crystal River to do a paddle in Three Sisters Springs. It’s a beautiful, beautiful spring and the manatee should be there to make it even better.
We were there a year or so ago and have been wanting to go back ever since. I would provide the link to my previous blog post, but I can’t remember exactly when we were there and it seems that the “search my blog” feature isn’t working (as usual).
Thanks for all the comments regarding my strange request the other day. I removed that blog from my blogroll. It’s too bad because I found there was some good information on her blog, and I probably won’t remember to read it, since it’s not showing on my blogroll anymore.
I often add blogs to my blogroll when I see a comment they have made on either mine or someone else’s blog. If I discover they also have a blog, I try to add them to my blogroll. Unfortunately, not all people who have blogs have it linked to their profile and I cannot always find your blog.
Before Google+, it seemed like most people used Blogger and it they left a comment, you could click on their name and it would automatically pop up their blog. That was nice.
With many blogs, you get their profile page, which shows their blog and you could just click to go to their blog. That’s nice too.
If you click the comment on a blog like Rick’s, in which he only allows comments from from people with Google +, you get this:
Rick has set up his Google+ account so that it also shows his blog. Many haven't’ done that and it makes it hard to find their blogs.
I want my blog to be found by as many people as I can, so when I noticed when I commented on Ricks blog, my name and photo came up, but my blog didn’t. I think I fixed that.
Anyway, if you write a blog and read and comment on others, have you checked to see if yours can be found easily when people click on your name in the comment section?
