How to Blog With a Cell Phone, A New "Vintage" Dress, and My Pets


First off I want to say thanks to Bethany from Clever Bunnies and MissMelodyMuffin from The Splendor Falls on Castle Walls for helping me with my blog and answering questions! Everthing is a lot smaller on a phone than a computer. Also they work a little differently... I think :]

Pretty much everything went good, but I did have trouble finding the Join this Sight gadget.

For any of you others that do, this is how; go to your blog dashboard, click on Layout, then on on of the boxes that say Add a gadget. This will bring up a page of 20-30 different gadgets, but none of these are the right ones.

Up in the upmost, far left corner are several options, and one is More Gadgets. After you click on this it will give you the option to choose any one of 300+ gadgets. Up top is a search box, though, so if you know what you want you don't have to scroll through them all. Search Members.

Also I had trouble with the banner. I still don't know if I like it, but for now it's fun :) I used an app called PicCollage to design it, then another called Photo Editor Pro to write the blog title. I just uploaded the picture from there.

One other problem I had was uploading pictures on here. But as you can see, I figured that out :D for some reason my phone wouldn't allow me to finish uploading my photos from my gallery, but my Mom told me about Here I upload the picture. It gives me several link codes.

I copy the HTML for websites, and paste it onto here.

Is there anyone else out there that blogs with a phone? If so let me know about your experience!

Now for the fun!!

My latest project... sorta. I made this dress several dresses ago, but wouldn't wear it until I'd got the lace collar in ( from the store hundredmiles ). I wore it for the first time today to church.

Also here are my goats :b a couple years ago we were taking care of a neighbor's goats... he had like 30 plus and just let them run wild. The brown one was born during that time

Catriona - a really pretty name I think. At the time I named her I was obsessed with Robert Louis Stevenson's books ( I still love them ), and I had just read his book Catriona, the sequal to Kidnapped. These two are probably my top two favorite Stevenson books.

And Priscilla!! I plan to breed them and increase my flock, sell the kids, and butcher some of the kids... I like goat meat :) I also want to make goat milk soap. I'm hoping to make some this week with milk from a neighbor.

And that's it for now. Have a good Monday, you all :D

    1. Thanks :) I see you have a blog now :b hope it goes good!

  2. You're welcome for the help. I'm glad it's working for you. :)

    What a pretty dress!! You did a great job on it!

  3. Purple! My fave color! !=) The dress is lovely, and I really like the lace collar. (I have a passion for lace!) Haven't tried blogging with my phone, yet. It's on the list, though, and I'll let you know how it goes once I try it.
    Just a note, your pictures are very big. Before you post, try looking through the HTML code for a number such as 'w800' and change it to 640. That should change the size of your pics so they fit better.
    Also, did you know that captcha is required for commenters to leave a post? This is on automatically, and has to be changed in your settings if you don't want to use it.

    BTW: I'm the Mom of Miss Melody Muffin, and her younger sister! ;)

  4. Thanks, I havent had a purple dress since I was really little, so I was excited :) yeah, I'd thought the pictures were big too, thanks, ill try that.
    I have no idea what you mean by captcha....

    1. 'Captcha' is when you have to enter a code in order to prove you are human before you can post. Blogger has this on as default for all blogs when you start one. Many of us turn that off, but turn on comment moderation, (where you have to preview comments and then choose whether or not you will post them.) so we can weed out any spam and bot posts.

      I used my phone to start a post today. Was able to upload pics right from my phone. I also discovered that in the settings, there is an option for a default picture size, (what size they will appear at on the post). There aren't as many options for fine tuning things as there are from a computer. (I'm using an iPhone, so I don't know if this is all the same on Android.)

      Currently, your first two pics on this post are looking good, the last one is still large. =)

  5. I just finished the last picture! thanks I didn't know you could change the size of a photo. Ok I'll check that out. I don't have very good internet service at home, so I'm thinking that's what most of my problems were.

Living Like The Amish: Interviews With Three "English" Families PART I

Many people are obsessed with the Amish. I know at one time I was as well, and to a degree I still am. But my perception  has changed with experience. It started a long time ago when my family went to an Amish-held auction (no, it's not a place where you can buy Amish children, but a place where you can buy things from the Amish). I was eleven years old and enthralled to be surrounded by so many Amish. I loved the cockscomb flowers they sold everywhere. I bought a whole box for $2 and dried them for seeds so I could plant my own. But then I experienced my first reality shock concerning the Amish. I had assumed since they lived a simpler life everything about them was completely old-fashioned and natural. Imagine my horror when I saw Amish walking around with soda cans and store-bought ice cream. " Mom ," I said. "He's drinking soda!"  Left to right, back row: Jonny, Jonathan (Dad). Front row: Jacob, Keturah, Rebekah (Mom), Jonah (on Mom's

Peace During Patience

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” - Philippians 4:6 My family and I were sitting around the breakfast table several months ago. Mom had just read this verse. One of the kids laughed incredulously, “What is it saying? Be careful for nothing – live recklessly?” “No,” I answered quickly. My tone was very matter-of-fact, blunt, as if I were all-knowing. “It means do not worry.” The kids all nodded among themselves and life continued on for them. But for me life paused at my words. I had heard this verse soooooooo many times. I had always known what it meant. But now? Now it really meant something . “Do not worry.” This path I've chosen. I can not see it. I can not feel it. I do not know where I am. I have chosen to follow God, and no other. But why did He hide the light from my eyes? I must take a step forward. But I do not want to. How long w

Inside The Land Of The Free

Hello. My name is Greg.  I have a lot of time to think. Too much time. Sometimes I think about my life - why I am sitting in prison. I wonder what I could have done different - my life plays before my eyes. "If only..." But even I know that no amount of good works would have stopped tyranny from finding fault with me. It is cold. My clothes are thin. My stomach is empty - occasionally filled with food of no sustenance.  I hide my face in my knees - as if that will somehow protect me from the horrors of this dark cold dungeon.  They keep it cold to freeze me, this I know. It is a part of their game - to drive a lesson into me. As if I have a lesson to learn solely because I was convicted. Convicted, but not  guilty. Years.  68 years for standing against injustice. How many years have I sat in here? I have forgot. All I know is this question, "Was I fated for this? Did God grant my birth

It Doesn't Take a Genius to Recognize Corruption

After attending the writer's conference I had the opportunity to spend a week with my dad in Las Vegas (we went to federal court trials). I don't usually speak much of his work as I'm not sure all what to say about it. He keeps the public updated with what's happening in court, with all the many men locked up that he's trying to help out. I think he said there are like 19 guys right now that he is specifically trying to help release.  {If any of you have heard of the Bundy Ranch Stand Off, you'll know a little of what he is doing} I won't go into too much detail with his work. I will say if you want to know more of how to help out and learn what's going on just do some googling - my dad's name is John Lamb. You should be able to find plenty on him ;p Anyways, I was quite shocked the first day. Security didn't surprise me at all. Very much like an airport ;p  Except, most of the security was actually nicer ;) I was very p
