4 years of blogging

So, yeah… started this blog 4 years ago. Cool…

Technical question

Can people see your private posts? What about those with passwords? I have another blog strictly for therapy (came about from needing to communicate between sessions with De,  who did not use email). Last week, the stats on that blog showed activity. No one other than myself has had access to it since I stopped seeing De, but the stats show views from another country. Can others see the contents of that blog? I’ve since set it to a totally private blog (needing to be an approved, registered user to access it), but I’m wondering if this person was able to actually see anything?

It’s stuff that is not meant for eyes other than mine and sometimes my therapist… I’ve had too many instances of people reading my physical journals, so I stopped writing there. People have gone through my email accounts, so that’s not happening. I’ve not found a secure and reliable journaling program (lost access to several journals because the apps or programs failed or lost data). I don’t want to lose the one last safer place to write things that are not meant for most eyes…

what happened to my “sticky”?

I have a private post that I wanted to keep as a sticky at the top of my blog (It’s a quote that I am not sure the person wants to be made public, since it was shared on a private group page, but it’s something I need to remember)… It was there for about a week, and now it’s not there anymore. Is there a way to keep a sticky at the top of the blog? I keep checking off “make this a sticky” but it doesn’t seem to work. What’s going on with it? Do the stickies expire?

really? that’s how you found me?

have you ever just browsed your stats to see how people find your blog?

I was casually looking before coming to post an art-related entry, and I stopped in my tracks & did a double-take when I read the only search term used to find me today:

search term used to find my blog

really? That is how you find me? I mean, I’m all for people stumbling onto this blog and maybe finding it helpful, but… ?! sorry to disappoint. nothing even close to any of that here. yes. each of those words, individually, may have been used as tags in my posts, but definitely not together like that… ::sigh::

smh around search engines that pop up blogs like this when people are clearly looking for something else…

seriously though, I’m pretty accepting of individual kink, but try not to harm or traumatized anyone while following your passions. black gay porn? sure, go for it! just leave the dog out of it (though I guess if you get off on watching dogs do it with other dogs, that’s ok, just don’t participate or force anything…). bestiality doesn’t exactly involve consent on the part of the animal, so I can’t condone that. consent and respect are huge deals in the realm of sexual activities.

if it was you, and you kept looking around here, more power to you for being disappointed but plugging on… lol.

WordPress and whatever search engine popped up my blog in response to that search term, you may want to check your algorithms… though I felt the need to add that search phrase into my tags, so now more people looking for that will find me easier, haha… oye!


how to direct readers to a random post on your blog

in case anyone else wants to allow for “random viewing”


is this possible?


1. Go to Appearance -> Menus

2. Create a Menu, doesn’t matter what you call it.

3. Click Links and type your WordPress URL and after the URL make sure you put ‘?random’ and then type your Link Text which can be ‘Read A Random Post’ or whatever you want.

4. Go to Manage Locations and put your menu in the Header Menu.
