    I think @potlatch gave up one of her secrets/pro tips for finding her posts using tags in the search feature, IIRC.
    Thank you for the mention Canadianeye.
    @donttread, Canadianeye was remembering that I said I put "potlatch" in my keywords so I can more easily find my own threads. Sometimes I find some really old ones and enjoy reading through them again. I also bookmark threads that are special to me.

    One time I posted a thread and within a short time I went to google and found it at the very top of Google's first search page! It wasn't my 'name' that did it but the use of descriptive keywords that caught the eye of Google's Bots.

    I used to be good at posting 'Breaking News' stories and they have more chance of being listed fast. Obviously it was something of importance or it wouldn't have happened and I caught it at just the right time before it went right down the page. I 'may' have it bookmarked but I have so much saved now that it's a chore to find things. It was fun seeing it though.

    Anyway, I went back and tagged the last thread I made. Baby steps.



    I tried a blog once and got good response from the few who stumbled into it but it was hard if not impossible to find it in a search. If it happened at all it was word for word which no one was going to do

    I saw that you had tagged your thread the other day. Did you discover that if you scroll down the 'Last 24 Hrs' page you can put your cursor over all the tags and it will show what's in them?

    It's probably pretty hard to get a Blog started and you have to keep at it for some time to attract attention. You also have to be interesting and have a lot of humor. I wouldn't be good at blogging as I'm too serious.

    Years ago I became adept at HTML and made a lot of webpages for my Profile there when I was on Free Republic. You also need a lot of "keywords" in Blogs to attract attention. Over time there have been changes in HTML [hyper text markup language] and the music has stopped working in my webpages.

    Thanks and no i haven't done that yet but I will try. I tend to think about the issue behind the issue which is why I started the blog. You do have to be pretty prolific which is hard to keep up when no one is reading.LOL

    That's true. I think I could only do it if I treated it somewhat more like a daily diary of the happenings in the world and in my own life. BUT, I seldom even go to my Facebook page anymore where my real life friends and relatives are, so......I probably wouldn't last long.

    I thought @Trinnity said not to tag anymore. Maybe I misunderstood. Maybe @Trinnity will check in on this.
    A flag worth dying for is a flag worth protecting.
