Find the question here

The Question

Considering how last year went and the current state of things, do you have any plans for Halloween this year? Will you be going to any costume parties, handing out trick-or-treat candy, or just staying at home with the porch light off so no one will bother you? Please let us know!

I remember as a kid getting dressed up and loving that and I remember going trick-or-treating but I don’t think I ever loved it. When my kids were little I loved dressing them up and tried opting to stay home and hand out candy rather than walk the streets. I guess I just never saw it as a true fun activity.

Now we are in a 55 and older condo complex. I think this would be a great place for little ones because they could go door to door without having to go in the street but I have no idea what they do here. Considering I am a sugar-hog I will most likely buy candy just in case…just in case I want to eat it! Lol. Honestly, I do the lame thing and go to CVS the day after and get the candy for 50% off!

Truthful Tuesday

For this week PCGuyIV writes: I would like everyone to share something positive from this year. What you share is up to you. It just has to be something good that happened this year, and it needs to be true.
To participate you can find it here: https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/12/29/truthful-tuesday-december-29th-2020/comment-page-1/?unapproved=1713&moderation-hash=97387b8b3bee8755bcf16efd23ccbcb7#comment-1713

One positive, which is really more than one but I will count as a collective whole, is selling my miniatures. When I first started making them I did so with the intent on learning how to build a dollhouse. I didn’t realize what was out there and how much I would love this craft. After building a few and hearing people praise my efforts I thought, “Hey, it won’t hurt and it only costs a tiny amount to list on Etsy.com. It was slow at first but I proved to my followers and customers that I am completely dedicated to doing my best work all the time. I pride myself on the details I pay attention to and the little things I add to make something “work”.

Over all, I have sold 15 miniatures! I am really proud of myself and love that I still love making them!

Truthful Tuesday

When it comes to giving money, do you view it as a thoughtful gift, or as a sign that the giver didn’t care enough to think about a “real” gift?

To answer this question truthfully go to: https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/12/08/truthful-tuesday-december-8th-2020/
To answer this question untruthfully go to: https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2020/12/08/truthful-tuesday-december-8th-2020/

My answer:

When it comes to “money gifts” I think it depends on who it is from and what occasion. There are definitely people one would like to buy for but have no idea what would be a suitable gift. That being said, I don’t think all gifts have to be what someone wants. A gift is a gesture. I worked with someone once who during Secret Santa time told everyone, “Do not buy me candles or any sort of knick-knack. I don’t want candy or food either.” She told people that scratch-offs were good.

I think giving money is okay if you know the person receiving it wants to spend it on something special. To just always give money,…well why bother?

As far as gift cards go, again depends on who and what for. Gift cards are a great way to not feel like you are wasting money on something someone doesn’t want anyhow. Well, in this day and age, people just buy whatever they want whenever they want so if they don’t want something nice, then that is their issue, not yours.

As far as I go, when I get gift cards I use them and when I get money I try to find something that I really wanted but didn’t want to just pay outright for.

Aside from getting rid of the Gutenberg Block Editor, since it’s fairly clear that it isn’t going anywhere, what three changes would you like to see WordPress.com make? Please explain.

Okay, I’m going to tell the truth…I don’t understand any difference in the editor. Has it changed in the last year? I believe it has. I don’t know what has changed. I don’t really know what a Gutenberg Block Editor is unless it is someone who works as an editor in Sweden.

What would I like changed?

-I would like to be able to use more fonts and maybe even emojis in my posts without having to copy and paste them from somewhere else. Maybe there is a way to do it, but I have no idea. I would love to be able to use my Bitmoji but that’s another thing I don’t know how to do.
-I would like to know what all the words mean on the customizer. What is a CSS? Yes, I have looked it up but I still don’t get it, when it comes to my blog.
-I would like there to be a special “banner” that says Reblog when I reblog something so I don’t have to feel like I am stealing someone else’s post and without everyone giving ME credit for a really good post that I never wrote!
