or not – Featured Post Update

Featured Post, RandomBlog2011 Challenge, PostADay2011, PostAWeek2011, QondioWell, it seems that my Featured Post – How it all started got someone’s attention at the online magazine. There is nothing bugging me today! 🙂

They were nice enough to give my rant a mention in one of their own updates to members.

There are things about Qondio that need improvement, and we don’t mind people posting rants (such as this one),

Yes, the name of the online magazine is Qondio.

They took notice and I’m pleased with the recent changes they’ve made to the site which encourages members to screen the articles and have them published in a timely manner.

Just to make sure that it really was working I decided to screen some articles this morning but there was only one. It was published quickly and there were no others to screen.

However, I checked back and a new one had been added. I screened this article and I was happy to see that it received 9 screenings and was published within an hour of the member submitting it. Much better than what was happening before.

I’m looking forward to seeing what other improvements they will have when Qondio V3.0 is released.

I would also like to thank Qondio because if it wasn’t for what was going on there I may have never started this blog. When I joined the challenge I wrote an article for Qondio encouraging others to start their own blog and join the WordPress Challenge.

One member did join me in the challenge and that is Barb19 – Passionate About Pets. Check out her latest post.

Following the recent Weekly Photo Challenge – Refuge, and my entry, I thought you might be interested in the whole story, together with progress photographs of the little rescued baby koala – and the happy ending!

There is nothing bugging me today!


p.s. If you haven’t already done so, check out the RandomBlog2011 Challenge.

    It was a great article Rose!

    I think it would be interesting to know what prompted people to start blogging…especially if their blogs existed before the WordPress Challenge 🙂

      Thanks PiP, it would be interesting to find out why others started blogging. 🙂

    Well I started my blog years ago, basically as an outlet for my insane single life and dating…thank god I am past that 🙂 But it really is just a great outlet for me, and I love writing 🙂

      Hi Princess, so now we get to hear about your insane ‘coupled’ life and it’s been a hoot! 🙂

    I started my blog as a way to stay accountable to the goals my hubby & I set. It has strayed off topic many times, but I so enjoy writing!

      Hi Shell, We’re all allowed to stray off topic.

      This isn’t what I was expecting two months ago but things happen and your blog takes another path. 🙂

    Yes Rose, it’s because of you that I am here in WordPress, after reading your article in Qondio. You inspired me and I couldn’t resist the challenge! The rest is history.
    I have had a blog on Blogger for some time now but it has never really taken off – I think mainly because there is no interaction with other members like there is here on WP.

    The community is wonderful here, everyone helping and supporting each other.

    Looking forward to the new changes in Qondio.
