Bloghop Prep plus Post-show info

The hop is coming right up!! WOOHOO! Are you excited??

  •  If you did NOT get the bloghop email (many times, lol), then PLEASE email bloghop@operationwritehome.org immediately. We'll get that worked out this evening with you. 
  • If you receive an email from Yolanda asking about switching links, please email her back to confirm you got her note. It's a herculean task to work out the last minute changes.
  • TURN OFF MUSIC AND CAPTCHA BEFORE MORNING. Pretty pretty pretty please. It will really help the hoppers get through all the blogs a lot faster and more comfortably leave comments for you :)
  • Need the list of stuff to put on your post? It's back on the bloghop page!
A few notes from Yolanda for new bloggers:
If you are in the hop and want to schedule your post here is how: If you use blogspot you will see "post options" at the bottom of your post composition on the left. Click. On right it will have a choice that says "post date and time". Fill in that info. Be sure to keep your AM and PM straight, as well as your time zone for going live. Then click "Publish Post." It won't publish immediately. It will show on your post list as "scheduled." 
For bloggers in the hop who use blogspot and need to know how to add the link to the next blog: Type the next person's name at the end of your post. Highlight it with your mouse, choose "link" on the toolbar above (right next to the add photo button) and put her blog URL in that box. Save. Now her name will show as a different color indicating that the link is live. There is also a button on that toolbar that has a large and small letter. That allows you to change the size of your type. (Select your type first.)

OWHtv
If you missed out on our first episode of OWHtv, here's the rerun for you, and the card made is below! Leave your feedback about the show...we'd love ideas for more segments, questions you'd like to see answered, and tell us which parts you want us to be sure to keep each week! We may even ask viewers to pick the next segment during the show - so be sure to tune in live and give us your input :)



"Keep those cards and letters coming!"

It's nice to see the card. Too much light washed out the colors on the show. Good show, but colors were off. Even your hands looked blue.

Ha, ha! Yeah it was hard to tell what colors the scraps were when they came out of those envelopes. We pretty much just had to rely on your description of what the colors were. Cream backgrounds,ivory and white all looked the same. I couldn't tell that the strip you cut and used was a greenish stripe either.
Was still interesting to see your thought process and now that we can see the finished card it makes more sense. Sharla

Sandy, I just want to thank you for taking MORE of your time to put something so cool like OWH/tv together for us! You do so much to encourage, motivate and teach us. I'm so blessed that I found you and OWH. In just 2 short months, I've made many friends through OWH and have been so inspired by you and other OWH'ers. Thank you, thank you, thank you. There aren't enough adjectives to describe how wonderful you are!
