Thanks very much to the hundreds of you who’ve already taken the time to share your opinions. The rest of you, get cracking! We’ll share key findings with you next week.

  1. “The mind is a wonderful thing. It starts working the minute you’re born and never stops working until you get up to speak in public” (uknown)…. ;-) ;-) ;-)

    1. I know what you mean, after having spinal cord surgery on my neck. Doctors say my mind is real sharp, even though the rest of me may not be hundred percent. My mind seems to be working just fine. To the subject of public speaking, seems funny how the brain trips on that subject.

  2. Like the articles – WP needs private messaging….ummm not sure, but I like WordPress better than Facebbok, Tumblr and Blogger.

  3. While only a blogger for three months, I enjoyed blogging so much and you guys ROCK! Blogging has given me a courage I lacked for years to publicize my writings. I love my little Lantern! And I love the daily post … as I writer I would not mind seeing literary/poetry prompts, but that is something that you may not find useful.
    Many thanks for all your consistent support,

  4. I’ve spoken and not held my peace :) I agree with Daniela. It would be really nice to have some poetry prompts or even a weekly poetry challenge. It could be a ton of fun and really bring a group of bloggers together that might not have had connection otherwise. Thanks for asking for our opinions!

    1. Agree – weekly poetry challenge or prompts is a wonderful idea, along with private messaging.

  5. I’m still very shy at writing something that’ going to be’ published……..As if it were of no interest at all… But I do like the blog,and I Look forward to receive the news everyday! A big bacio!

  6. I completed the survey – but now have thought of a topic (of course) – Can someone explain how file space is used by media? Does a photo start counting when you pull it into the library, or when you post it? If you post the same photo multiple times (or use it as the featured/banner image) does it use space again? How do file size selections in the library affect usage? And do slideshows and galleries use more space that just posting the photos? If you add a slideshow of post photos to the bottom of the pot, does that double the usage? Just trying to plan ahead….. Thanks!

    1. I just missed the survey, but as a fellow blogger I’ll answer The Retiring Sort.

      The file starts counting when you upload it to your library, once it’s there you can post it multiple times – the file size still stays the same.

      Earlier I’ve written a post about cropping and resizing images ( Resizing images is goodd, not only for the reasons that I wrote about in the post, but it will also benefit you because you’ll be able to put more photos into your library without using up your space.

      Slideshows and galleries are just simple coding, so it shouldn’t take up any more space than the photos itself.

  7. I can’t think of any poetry but I’ve a couple of nice quotes from Oscar Wilde.
    1″All of us are in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars”
    2″I can resist everything except temptatation”
    3″Women have a much better time than men in this world;
    there are far more things forbidden to them.”
    On his deathbed in Paris he was heard to say “Either me or the wallpaper, one of us has got to go” To a truly amazing man.

  8. well, simply you are amazing…You are reaching out people through your great writings….And I’m becoming an avid fan of yours….:) Life is beautiful and your extending that to all your avid follower…

  9. please take a look WordPress rudolf rietveld / madelonanton and send to your frend,s . Thank you verry mutch !

  10. Typical: I already filled out the survey and now I know what I want to know. Are there any suggestions to help generate comments?

  11. WordPress. No wonder it rhymes with “best”!
    You have given me and many others a nice place to meet, to express, and quite possibly to change the world to be a better place.
    I like the idea of poetry and quote prompts. Not sure what private messaging is but if it self-explanatory, then I think it’s a good idea. Another blogger and I have the same theme and we were helping each other out with design. We used the comments section. Private messaging would have been nice.
    I filled out the survey, but now see more ideas I did not think of.
    Glad you are giving reminders and listening.
    This truly is a grand place. Keep it that way!

  12. You’re providing a great service for those of us that used to yell at the television and say, “these people are crazy!”. Now we can write our own blogs and get yelled at by others when we’re way off base. Although my blog – One Businessman’s Perspective … is long, I appreciate the therapeutic value of writing and sharing versus yelling.

    One thing I would like to see added is the ability to more effectively search by image content.

  13. LEIA SOZINHO porque no passado eu também não acreditava que ia dar certo, mas… funciona mesmo!!!
    Entrei neste site e fiz esta prece. Fiz para ver se ia dar certo e deu, assim que acabei meu amor ligou. A
    pessoa que eu copiei também não acreditava mas para ela também funcionou! AGORA VEREMOS…
    Diga para você mesmo o nome do único rapaz ou moça com quem você gostaria de estar (três vezes)…
    Pense em algo que queira realizar na próxima semana e repita para você mesmo (seis vezes).
    Se você tem um desejo, repita-o para você mesmo (Venha cá ANJO DE LUZ eu te INVOCO para que Desenterre o mdnm de onde estiver ou com quem estiver e faça ele ME telefonar ainda hoje, Apaixonado e Arrependido, desenterre tudo que esta impedindo que o mdnm venha para MIM m, afaste todas aquelas que tem contribuído para o nosso afastamento e que ele mdnm não pense mais nas outras… mas somente em MIM. Que ele ME telefone e ME AME. Agradeço por este seu misterioso poder que sempre dá certo.
    Só mesmo esta simpatia, quero compartilhar com você a minha alegria e mostrar que se para mim deu certo para você também dará basta copiar e colar por três vezes em inforum diferente esta simpatia abaixo e logo em 48hs você terá uma linda surpresa, beijos
