College Football Season Has Officially Begun…

College Football Season Has Officially Begun…

I find myself, today, looking up the football schedule for the University of South Carolina. We’ve always been a LSU family because H went to school there. It doesn’t hurt that I’m from Louisiana.

Then…Andrew decided to go to Troy State University to pursue his college career. That’s when he became a part of The Sound Of The South marching with their percussion section. Of course, we had to include Troy on our football watching schedule. We began following the games on TV and attending all the home games in person since we were only two hours away. What fun we had!

After graduation Andrew went on to grad school at Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee. There was no football team, so no marching band. We witnessed a lot of concerts through live video which was great because commuting to Tennessee was not an option.

We also continued watching LSU football and kept Troy on our list because of their great marching band.

Andrew is now at the University of South Carolina in pursuit of his doctorate and working as a Graduate assistant with the percussion section of their marching band. He won’t be performing this time, but I wouldn’t forgive myself if I missed that chance of a small glimpse of him at a game.

My TV is set to record because H is teaching lessons this afternoon. LSU plays tonight so I guess college football season and marching band has begun!

Maybe I can “pretend” to watch tonight while I read. After all, There is no chance I’ll get a glimpse of Andrew while watching LSU.

I will not “pretend” that I watch football for the sport. It’s all about the marching band…

COMMENTS CLOSED – Are all your boxes ticked

COMMENTS CLOSED – Are all your boxes ticked

My last couple of blog posts received no comments. Yes, there were some likes, but I seemed to have very little traffic compared to a few weeks ago.

Then a fellow blogger friend contacted me and asked why I had my comments turned off. That was news to me! I hadn’t turned off my comments and wasn’t even sure I knew how to.

The majority of my posts are composed and posted through the WordPress app on my phone. There aren’t many options to delve into the mechanics of WordPress from the app so I opened up my laptop and started searching for an answer on my site.

After much googling and questioning of WordPress I got answers that really didn’t help. My settings showed I had all the right boxes ticked, and unticking and re-ticking didn’t magically solve the problem.

Bingo!

If you scroll to the end of your problem blog in edit mode there is a box to tick for allowing comments. Mine was unticked.

Is this something new? I’ve never had to tick that box before and haven’t even noticed it. But like I said, my phone app doesn’t have that option.

My main settings are set to allow comments. Does this mean I will have to start posting from my laptop so I can tick that extra box every time? I hope not.

I’m sure it’s some technical blunder on WordPress. Not my fault.

BTW I’m posting this from my phone. Let’s see what happens!

Are all your boxes ticked?

UPDATE

Yes, I had to go in on my laptop and check that box. This is so frustrating!
