A handful of questions have been aired over yesterday's WOYWW post. I shall attempt to answer them here.
1. What's this about a badge?
A real, pin on the back, wear it on your bag/sleeve/coat/jumper badge is available to regular WOYWWers. You just have to ask: email@example.com
2. Yeah, but posting one abroad is silly.
I am more than happy to post you a badge, local, national or international. Space station would be a erm, blast! The whole concept of WOYWW and this blog is pretty silly, why should I change it now!
3. What's the badge about?
I thought it would be fun to have one to wear when you go craft shopping and to conventions and shows...you might meet someone you've met here already. So it's just an extension of the cyber friendliness really.
Why not? We're nearing the third anniversary and I can't think of anything else that may be useful and fun at the same time.
I commissioned the design from Luscious Life Studios. (Doesn't that sound great!). Then I sent the artwork to a real life badge making factory. Because buying a badge maker and making that many would have caused me to die tragically early. Of boredom.
6. Why did you change your mind about Word Verification?
I haven't really, I still think it's none of my business if you choose to use it or not. But over at WOYWW, turns out a lot of bloggers don't know they're using it, and don't like it on other blogs. So, after many emails asking me too, I've flagged it up as an issue.
7. How do I know if my blog is using WV?
Log into your blog as if you were a reader, try leaving yourself a comment. Really!
8. OK, so how do I turn it off then, smart-arm?
On Blogger? Fiona, (Staring at the Sea) found a great site with clear instructions (pictures!) Click on this link : how to turn off word verification
9. Birds Eye View desk photos
take 'em at your own risk gentle WOYWWer. I have never ever used a stool or soapbox to stand on - to take a photo! My overhead shots are at arms length, on tippy toe, sucking in my stomach with shoulders bent forward to remove my chest from the viewfinder. With that sort of effort, why would I need a stool. Honestly, you people worry me.
10. My bag is packed
Yes Princesss Judy, I'm like the BAU team on Criminal Minds...my bag is always ready. Just email me the tickets.
So y'all, is that any help? First wave of badges going to post office today. Assuming it doesn't rain. I can't go out in the rain. Sugar melts in the rain. Ahem.
