A Litmus Test For Love May 16, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Mindfulness, People.

Love is that condition in which the happiness of another person is essential to our own.  ~ Robert Heinlein

If we’re focused on THEM and adding to THEIR happiness . . . it’s probably LOVE. 

If we’re focused on wanting THEM to make US happy . . . it’s probably not.

What say you?

Disabling The Default Comment Setting May 16, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Blogging, Life Balance.

After the “great feedback” it received last week, WP launched an update to subscribe us, by default, to comment threads whenever we post a comment.

After summarizing the experiment WP has been running for the past week or so, Beau Lebens explained the launch of the new default setting . . . AND how to disable it:

By default, posting a comment will now subscribe you to receive follow-up comments via email for that specific post, keeping you updated on the conversation.

This is indicated by the checked box in the comment form.

If you have a WordPress.com account, you now have a global setting to change this so that by default you will not be subscribed.  

If you don’t have an account, then you can create one over here.

To read the whole article:  Stay In The Conversation.

If, like me, you do NOT want to be subscribed to comment threads by default, go to E-Mail Delivery Settings . . . scroll down to Follow Comments and UNCHECK the box.

Then SAVE your changes. 

What an EASY way to keep weeds out of our garden!

After changing the default setting, you can still follow comment threads on intriguing posts by checking the box when you post your comment.   

Aah . . . that’s better!
