Adventures of the invisible ‘like’ button

Salut mesdames et messieurs!

Image result for gif announcement

It has come to my attention that the ‘Like’ button on this blog after a post is somewhat invisible to some readers, and they assumed that I disabled the button for certain posts. To set the record straight, I did no such thing. I don’t know if this is a glitch of some sort from WP, but I haven’t been able to leave likes on certain posts unless I open up the blog in Reader, which I now prefer to use when it comes to catching up with my blogging family.

For some reason, the invisible like button reminded me of walking by faith and not by sight. I did not set out to become any top blogger, so the invisibility doesn’t bother me at all. I’m sorry that the button is invisible to some of you, and I hope this issue resolves soon. With WP, if it’s not one thing, it’s another.

Coffee Tuesday! โ˜•

The next step in this journey.

Salut! And welcome back to this little space on the internet.ย 

2019, huh? I had so many plans for the blog but in the end, many of them were not to be. Now, I look ahead to see where blogging will take me in 2020.

The journey continues?

God has plans for this blog, so yes, the journey is going to continue. I’ve already sketched ideas for certain topics and in doing so, I got a chance to improve my graphics game. Thank You, God! Creativity comes from the Creator after all and I enjoy discovering new ways to create things.

A few blog plans thus far:

Bible studies, monthly scriptures…

Studying the Bible is not a pastime, it’s a habit and the more time I spend in the Word, the more I learn or discover. We’ve only studied Genesis thus far on LPM, but I do plan on posting study notes from Exodus when the time is right. As for the weekly scriptures, they’ll now become monthly from January.

…and a devotional?

I’ve always wanted to feature a devotional monthly study on the blog and it looks like I’ll be getting an opportunity soon. I’ve prayed about it and the study was already revealed to me so bless God for this. I’ll reveal the Book which God led me to when the time is right. It’s not going to be anytime soon, though.

New/revamp categoriesย

The categories are something I tend to mention during these kinds of wrap up. It’s most likely that some of these categories would be renamed and some might be dropped. One such category is French Friday which is most likely to be renamed. And yes, there are a few new categories on its way which will be revealed in due time. Also, me dearest, if you’re reading this, I plan to start doing book reviews again. ๐Ÿ˜

366 days of gratitude?

Ruth over on plantedbylivingwater is currently doing 365 days of thanksย and it’s a wonderful reminder to be grateful. I’ll love to participate as well, but I’m not sure how it’s going to work out as yet. However, I am seriously considering opening a blog just for this sole purpose, so I can journal 366 things to be grateful for in 2020.ย 

Posting schedule

Where it concerns randomly posted topics, nothing has changed. However, I got led to create a blogging planner for the first time since I’ve started blogging. I’ve never had the need for one before, but God has many things planned for this blog in 2020 so most likely I’ll be using the planner to schedule posts.ย 

Here’s to 2020!

Ghost comments!๐Ÿ‘ป

Dรฉjร  vu! That’s what it is. Dรฉjร  vu, I tell you.ย 

Oh, hi guys.ย 

Image result for gif waving hi

I just have a few things that I need to get off my chest, so please bear with me a little.

Ghost Comments๐Ÿ‘ป

WordPress is back at it again. For the past few days, I’ve been leaving comments on some blogs only to see it disappear. Please check your spam folders for comments from bloggers for they’re most likely to appear there. I don’t think WordPress is likely to solve this problem permanently.

Slow Reading ๐ŸŒ

Since I’ve returned from my hiatus last month, I’m spending less time on WordPress for time is limited. The result is slow-reading of your blogs, but I do try to make use of the time whenever I log in, so I mostly read blogs from the Reader or whenever I’m replying to comments I’ll pop in at your blog. I hope to rectify this soon.

Still under construction ๐Ÿšง

Despite changing the fonts (which I love!) and the banner, I’m still searching for a theme. The Penscratch 2 theme is the one I may eventually go with whenever I decide it’s time to change this theme. I also like the Eventbrite Single Event theme. Also, I’m reworking the ‘Bonjour’ page. So many changes to go; all in God’s timing.

And congrats Spurs!Related image

This has got to be the most romantic season of Champions League and Europa League for the English! Well, where my team Tottenham Hotspur is involved. Hugo Lloris captained France to World Cup victory last year and now he has captained Spurs to a CL final against Liverpool. If they win, Lloris for Ballon d’Or! Ah, just joking, for they already made a grave mistake with the last Ballon d’Or winner.

As for Europa League, Arsenal all the way! My sister is rooting for Spurs and Chelsea for since at the beginning of the season, she said those two teams will reach their respective final and she was right.ย 

Scenes from Wednesday evening after Spurs won against Ajax to go to the final:

Lucas Moura’s hat trick sent Spurs to the final plus a wonderful save from Lloris in extra time.

Joie!

My bestie is on WordPress!

Guys! This is an exciting moment for me because my partner in writing and sister in Christ has just joined this wonderful community. I have mentioned her countless of times in my posts and I had also featured some of her poems this past year, so I am happy that she’s joining the family.

I’ve been asking her to join WordPress for a long time now and she’s finally here! She’s a brilliant writer, a wonderful friend, but most of all, God’s child.ย 

She is in the process of settling and shaping the blog in how she desires it to be, but you can check out Tammy’s blog via God inspired art.ย
