Well, here I am.
May 29th, 2011 by Augie Doggy

Time speeds by, doesn’t it?  It seems just yesterday that Cleo expressed her relief at not being elected president in 2008.  Since then, campaign headquarters at http://www.goldenbarker.com has remained as it was on election day.  The Golden Barker hasn’t published a new edition for nearly three years.  That’s okay.  It’s fitting that Cleo’s last column contained her reflections on the campaign and the future of the country under its then new president.  Politics was her passion.

So, moving on . . .   I created this wordpress blog and put it in a folder on the goldenbarker.com web site.  So far I haven’t put anything on the site that links to the blog though.  What I would like to do is create a space on the opening page of the website where someone would see the title and the first couple lines of the blog, so they could click on it and come to here and read the whole thing.  Does anyone know how to do that?  I’m pretty sure it can be done because I think I’ve seen sites that did that.

If I can figure that out, then I’ll do some updating and rearranging on the web site.  I’m sure Cleo would want me to put it to some good use.  Does anyone have any ideas?

Heh Heh.  That last question is a subtle way of getting you to comment on this blog so that I can see how the whole comment thing works in wordpress.

    Woo Hoo ! It works, I guess. Now I have to figure out how to integrate it.

    I have nothing intelligent to add, I like to be consistent.

    All I know is that the RSS url is http://www.goldenbarker.com/blog1/feed but I can’t remember how to use it. Maybe try one of the options here…

      In poking around, I can see that understanding RSS feeds may be important. That’s another subject where I’m pretty illiterate, but I’ll look into it and figure it out.

    Augie, here’s a javascript generator that is fairly customizable http://www.rss-to-javascript.com/p/RSSRDF-Converter___138.html

    Dang, I don’t know why you all had trouble with the name thingie. Heck, it tells you what to put!
    Otay, I am confused (wow, like that’s never happenned before!). So this is a blog that is part of some other blog site?

    • Augie Doggy writes:

      I call your confused and raise you two bewildereds. I already have a domain with a home page and stuff, and I want to add a little block that includes the latest news generated from word press. Cleo used to just post whatever her thoughts were and would link it to The Golden Barker newspaper, because she didn’t care what anyone else thought. But I was thinking it would be nice to integrate the blog into a web site, so people could make comments.

    I don’t know how to do the synopsis/link thing, though I know what you’re talking about.

    For the “latest news generated from word press” look for an RSS feed on their site and post that. I’m sure it’s around somewhere. 🙂

    Yay you for the update!

    Thanks for posting this Auggie. I hope you found
    some healing in all of this too!
