Got Feedback?

Nancy and I have really enjoyed doing this blog together and it has been a good way to keep everyone informed about how Nancy is doing. There have also been some wonderful unanticipated outcomes: the "cousins" weekend in January with Maureen, Kathy and Sue, the recent Smith family reunion, and watching Mom and Aunt Marion master this new technology (Marion is even on Facebook now!)
The only thing we'd like to get better at is making the blog more interactive so that we're not the only ones doing all the sharing. Some have mentioned that they are having trouble leaving "Comments" on the blog so here are some pointers:
At the bottom of each post (entry) on the blog, you will see a line similar to this:
posted by Nancy at 10:43 p.m. 0 comments (followed by a small envelope icon)
Just click where it says "0 comments" - that is a link - and a text box will appear for you to write your comment in. Once you have written in that, it will say "Post Comment As" and you will be given choices. If you have a Google account, select that option and your name will come up with your comment. If you do not have a Google account, just scroll down and select "post as Anonymous" . Then hit the "Post Comment" button and you're done! That's all there is to it.
If you do post as anonymous, you may want to sign your comment in the text box so we know who you are. If you decide to create a Google account, it's are the instructions:
To create a Google Account, just visit the account-creation page, enter your current email address, and choose a password. Once you've finished registering, you'll receive a verification email. Click the link in that email to complete the verification process.
Note: If you click the small envelope icon on the line after the post, a box will open up allowing you to e-mail the blog to someone else who you think would enjoy reading that entry.
Please let us know if you are still having trouble posting can e-mail Nancy at or me at
Now it's your turn...please join us in sharing your funny stories, favorite memories, and feedback to our posts. We're looking forward to hearing from you!
p.s. If any of you would like access to the blog as an "author" (you can write your own posts, add photos, etc.), please let Cheryl know. As blog "administrator", I can open that option up for you. We'd love more "authors"!
