Just an FYI to the community - I haven't been that active - I am in the middle of switching over to my new Google+ Profile, which means I am transferring ownership to this new profile as well - it's under the same name, just a different Google mail account ... they make it convoluted to switch things over so I might not be as active for a little while yet.

So ... I still have a TON of housekeeping to do but I'm switching to a new Google+ account - have tried to transfer all the circles and stuff ... but just in case, would you be awesome and make sure you have me in your circles?

This is my new profile: https://plus.google.com/u/2/117848604688873558087/posts

As we head into the New Year I wanted to take a moment and wish everyone Merry Christmas (if you celebrate) and continued Wordpress Health (gotta have those sites strong!) ... I'd love to hear any ideas for topics for webinars, Hangouts, or even documents we could share within the group that would help make this an even better resource? 

Special thanks as always to my amazing guys +John Moore  and +Bob Dunn - without them this group would be a chaotic mess :D

I'm getting ready to head out of town to a convention (non-Wordpress related but woot!) ... but I wanted to address some confusion over the community guidelines. I don't, as a rule, mind you sharing a link as part of discussing something posted to the discussion section or another BUT keep in mind the guidelines: 
Thou shalt not self-promote -- this means if it is your own link you better have an extremely good reason for sharing it, besides wanting to share the link. Sometimes it's great to spread discussion from site to social platform, so I won't just arbitrarily say don't share your own links, but your post will be deleted and/or you'll get a sweet warning from our friendly neighborhood moderator.
Thou  shalt not blindly link and run -  I don't care if it's your own link or not, it doesn't help the community to drop a link with no discussion ... period. Your post will be deleted and/or you'll get a sweet warning from our friendly neighborhood moderator asking for more information, a better intro, discussion points ... whatever. :-) 
Thou shalt remember it's a COMMUNITY - chime in on discussions, share great articles with valid discussion/intro and in the proper area -- lots of people love info on Plugins but those should go in the right section, same with CSS info ;-) 
Thou shalt not be a meanie I was gonna say a naughty word but you get the idea ... don't spam the community with your latest and greatest, do chime in to help someone if you have something to add, don't drop affiliate links unless you have clearly stated such (by the way that is part of the FCC guidelines, not even my own - I just adhere to it!). 

Get it? Got it? Great! Have an amazing weekend - I might not be around much but I'll try to check in from time to time and trust our awesome mods to keep the community from self-imploding while I'm gone :D

What motivates the "drop a link and run" is the incorrect perception that it is building ranking. IT DOES NOT.  Going forward with Hummingbird and Semantic Search, the key is building authority and one of the many metrics for build that authority is peoples response to your shares AND your engagement. Dropping a link is now defined as spam and Google has become quite serious about killing spam. 
Posting a share that promotes that engagement is the key. So what we are asking of everyone will be a classic "win-win"..  Sharing good information in a way that promotes discussion and engagement, with a good side effect of building authority.

Over the years, as we have struggled to remember that love amidst the stress of raising three kids with awesomeness, we both sometimes forgot that time of learning to love. We forgot how hard it was to fall in love. And we treated our marriage as if it were a secondary entity in this overwhelming family.

We still do that sometimes.

And yet we always come around the corner and tiptoe around and up to one another, we always come face-to-face, and we always remember that we’re a team. It’s us against the world. Us. We. Him and I. We come together, and we work better together.

That’s still not why I love him... 

I'd love you to continue reading at my site ...I would love to think that marriage is important to others out there too.

My youngest is finally on the road to recovery so I thought I would stick my nose back into the group for a few to say hello! Looks like some great posts have come through and I want to welcome new members and encourage you all the interact, help, ask questions! That's what this group is for! 

Thanks again to my marvelous moderators +John Moore and +Bob Dunn ...you guys have been so awesome in keeping everything running smoothly! 

For those who don't know I my kids and my hubby have some health conditions that sometimes keep me from being a part of everything online the way I would want to. I tend to still post on FB if you really miss me (that's the sound of me laughing there!) but don't get around to all the different sites. So if you see me missing now you know why, and know why I asked for a little help making sure the community runs smoothly whether I'm able to check in or not.

Thanks you guys - obviously I spoke too soon - but not for kid reasons ... just crazy getting work done before the holidays! My little guy is still seizure free and my other guys are doing great - hope everyone else is doing well and I look forward to participating again! :D (I MISS Google+ ... it seems like every time I turn around there are new people to meet and things to do, though!)

Looking for some help here - I'd love to find a great moderator to pull up who can help when life gets a little crazy. 

Also ... STOP the spamming folks (you know who you are!!!) This is a group about support and community ... not your personal link-sharing zone. Contribute to the community - comment, share, encourage others! Please!
