I’ve been told I love to ramble on, so why not pass along some of my ramblings from this past month.
I’m always thankful when August is over and hoping there will be a reprieve of the heat in September here in Central Florida. The humidity is so heavy right now. But, September also brings the height of hurricane season. Let’s hope we don’t have a repeat of Hurricane Irma anytime soon!
Let’s Talk WordPress
Changes are coming and you should be prepared.
- Are you using any of these plugins? If so, they might be slowing your site down. Google loves fast websites and could penalize your site rankings. Here is a list of recommended WordPress plugins.
- Google now penalizes your site if you aren’t HTTPS. This started back in July. If your site isn’t HTTPS compliant yet, please let MaAnna at BlogAid help you with this. She also does a site audit that will find security problems and speed up your site. The FREE version of HTTPS will come back and bit you and not a good choice.
- WordPress version 5.0 will be coming out soon and you may want to follow these instructions and wait on updating to the 5.0 version.
NOTE: MaAnna has done my sites audits, converted my site over to HTTPS and I highly recommend her services. Be sure to sign up for her weekly updates. She keeps you ahead of the curve when it comes to WordPress news and she also tries out plugins to recommend for you to use on your site. I will be taking her SEO class after she does my next site audit scheduled next month. Here is a list of all the services she offers for WordPress users. And MaAnna will speak to you in a way you will understand.
Also, with Gutenberg and changes with WordPress, it would be a good idea to follow someone who knows their stuff and MaAnna will keep you ahead of the curve. You will want to make sure your theme and plugins will be compatible with Gutenberg. Stop by BlogAid to read more.
***I am not being paid to tell you about the services MaAnna of BlogAid offers to WordPress users. I just love her work!

Cover Up That Camera When Not In Use
Isn’t this a neat little device you can put on your monitor or laptop? And it looks so much nicer than a piece of tape over your camera lens. It’s just a simple webcam cover which can keep your life private. I have heard horror stories of laptops open and their camera being hacked. Perfect for students. Isn’t your privacy worth a few dollars?

Friend to Friend –
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things, there is no law. – Galatians 5:22-23
Just ramblin’ on,
I’m just a country girl loving my geeky life with my wonderful husband, always taking pictures, getting my hands dirty in the garden, being crafty, exploring with travels and enjoying all this on a budget. But above all, living my faith as a child of God!
