Last week there was an update to WordPress.  Did you have any problems?  What are your experiences with updates in general?  Do you feel you need to know more?
There was an update to WordPress from 4.2.4 to 4.3. This post will review ways to deal with upgrades so you are less likely to have major issues.

Remember #Mobilegeddon ? Seems like it ^did* indeed have an influence.  See +Mark Traphagen 's post.
 
MOBILEGEDDON: Non-Mobile Friendly URLs Show Nearly 50% Ranking Drop!
See Our Just-Published Before & After Study

+Eric Enge at +Stone Temple Consulting pulled ranking data on the top 10 mobile results for 15,235 search queries the week of April 17th (before the so-called #Mobilegeddon  Google update rollout), and again the week of May 18th. We pulled ranking information, and also identified whether or not the URLs in the results were designated as Mobile Friendly by Google or not.

Because of the size and methodology of our study, we were able to show the real change that the Mobile Ranking Update brought about that other, smaller and more anecdotal studies missed.

Read the complete study at http://stonet.co/MobilegeddonStudy

If you find this information useful, please reshare it! Thanks!

+Leora Wenger  Thanks for sharing this study by +Mark Traphagen. From most of the content that I've been seeing, it looked like Google's update didn't have much impact. Thank goodness Stone Temple Consulting conducted a study that shows otherwise.

Beautiful Memorial Day #watercolor by Greg Betza
along with the classic Flanders fields poem
http://onedrawingaday.com/2015/05/25/memorial-day-2/
In Flanders fields the poppies blow. Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky. The larks, still bravely singing, fly. Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago. We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie ...

Do you like illustrations? +Susan P Cooper has a beautiful new website.  Check out her lovely, heartwarming illustrations.  She is now providing illustration as one of her services - perhaps a fitting illustration might help your own site? http://susanpcooper.com/

I didn't know that +Susan P Cooper was offering her illustrations as a service. I'm a big fan of her artwork.

This is a test - does Google+ pick up the right image?  Our site uses small featured images, but there is a large image on the event page itself.  Looks like Google+ correctly picks the large image. #featuredimages #WordPress (and if you are in New Jersey, come to the library book sale!)
The Friends of the Library Book Sale will be held May 17 and May 18 from 9 AM to 5 PM. When the library is not open please enter on North Sixth Avenue. There will be books for every age and of every genre including bestsellers, mysteries, science fiction, and many non-fiction subjects such as gardening, cooking, history, biography and memoir.

Any lilacs blooming in your neighborhood? Other trees, bushes, flowers in bloom? My poor neighbor was complaining his allergies are really bad now. We went from snow to warm, almost like summer.

I tried to leave a comment on +A.K. Andrew 's post, but it seems the comments went fishing.  At least, until fall.  Good ideas: gardening, painting, writing a story, photography.  I will add: sewing (my newest pastime). Thanks to A.K. for the mention of of my watercolors.

One thing I love about photography - one can take a ten minute break to photograph sage flowers, post the photo, then continue with one's day!  Do you grow any herbs?  Any urge to photograph spring blooms at this time of year?

What is your favorite flower?  I am quite fond of snapdragons. Are planning a garden this spring? What would you plant if you could?

On the WordPress exploit - a comments exploit: "allows a hacker to store malicious JavaScript code on WordPress site comments" ... "Users have been advised to update, though with the fresh zero-day they will likely remain unprotected upon upgrading."
 (this article is from 5:20AM - did WP 4.2.1 fix it?)
WordPress zero-days are being used to hack into sites across the web and attacks aren't likely to slow thanks to exploit code being made publicly available. Most versions of the platform, used by 20 per cent of the web, are affected.

A wonderful place - you can visit between 11 am - 3 pm and pet the cats. Very friendly volunteers explained to us all about how the place works. My daughter had a great time there - we went twice, and she was sad that we didn't get to go a third time.
