Did it work?

OK, peeps, I sent in a request for help through Jetpack support, telling them that I was having issues with the Facebook Publicize. This was part of their response, telling me what the problem is, and what to do to fix it.

“In your case, Facebook is not accepting your post for publication due to the open graph errors that you mentioned on your latest blog post. These are happening because you have the All-In-One SEO plugin installed, but it isn’t setup for adding social tags.

Since Facebook doesn’t like duplicate Open Graph tags either, Jetpack automatically disables our Open Graph tags to avoid any conflict when a plugin, like All-in-One is installed. But since we aren’t providing the tags nor is All-In-One, Facebook isn’t happy.

You can resolve this by either setting up All-In-One to insert Open Graph tags or you can install this plugin to reactivate Jetpack’s: https://wordpress.org/plugins/always-use-jetpack-open-graph/

Once either of those are done, the tags should return to your site and your site should publicize to Facebook as expected, based on the debugging information on our end.”

 

I looked at the All-in-One plug-in settings to see if I could modify it to add social tags, but I couldn’t find anywhere that I could do that.  I’m feeling pretty stupid at this point! So, that “All-in-One” plug-in that has been so highly recommended by so many people may be the culprit!

 

I have installed the “Always Use Jetpack Open Graph” plug-in that the Jetpack support recommended, and activated it. I am HOPING that will take care of the issue! Once I hit “Publish” I will go to Facebook and see if it appears or not. I hope it did! Wish me luck! If it works, I’ll add a “YAY it worked” comment below the appearing post!

Facebook Publish vs Networked Blogs

Well, until I can figure out and debug the Facebook Publicize for my personal blog, I will be using “Networked Blogs” to publish my blog posts to Facebook. The posts don’t appear instantly, but the will appear eventually. Am very glad that there is more than one way to get these things done!

Certificate of Appreciation Received From Locks of Love

Certificate Of Appreciation from Locks of Love

Recently I mailed a ponytail of hair that I had cut off to Locks of Love. They emailed me a certificate of appreciation! I don’t remember asking for one, but I have to admit it is nice to get a “Thank you” from someone now and then when you do something good.

I think “Thank You” is a term that has been badly neglected in recent history by many people. So many people take each other for granted. I don’t know anyone that likes to be taken for granted, do you?

Technology is great when it works!

Going through the “Facebook” debugger, apparently there are some “open graph” issues that have been preventing the Facebook publicize from working. I have no idea how to fix them with the current theme I have been using, so I have temporarily switched to a different theme to see if the Publicize will work with that.

Crossing my fingers, as I hit “Publish”

Love the smell of line-dried sheets

I’m not a big fan of the extra work involved in taking clothes from the washing machine outside and hanging them on a line, then going back out hours later and taking them down. And certain clothes just don’t feel as soft when line-dried, even if fabric softener is used in the washing machine. Especially towels!

I will admit that I love the convenience of just putting the clothes in the electric dryer. Hanging clothes on a clothes line to dry is inconvenient.

But, I DO love the smell of sheets that have been dried outside in the sun. There is something about the scent of line-dried clothing that just makes me feel “good.”

A few years ago, when looking at our electric bill, I decided to try to save some money by purchasing a clothes-line pole, and asked my hubby to install it in the back-yard. I was hoping to save money. Well, that clothes line pole was FINALLY installed about two weeks ago, and although I readily admit that I do NOT use it for EVERY load of clothes (I don’t want the sun to fade the colors of my bright clothes) I am trying to use it for the articles that are already white, or articles that I don’t mind if they fade a little bit.

The extra physical labor of taking the clothes out, and in again is actually helping me get my back-side off of the chair in front of the computer, and I am loving the smell of the clothes.

I DO need to remember, though, to shake everything when I take it down from the line, to help encourage any little creepy-crawlers to vacate whatever item they have attached themselves to. I really don’t want to bring in hitch-hiking spikders or beetles.

I hope I can keep this up!
