It is wonderful when a student gets published!

Hi Roxanne!

Hope you are doing well! Since you are the reason I wrote this poem I thought you would be delighted to know it was published by Eber &Wein Publishing. I originally submitted it into a contest and later received a letter the poem would be printed in a book. It had to be changed to meet the specifications of the contest however the meaning is still there. Thank you so much for introducing me to the brilliant mind of Marshall McLuhan. Here is a picture of my name printed in a book!

Getting to the powerful WordPress admin dashboard

As WordPress makes it easier and easier for people to put up a fast post, it takes more and more of the important tools you need for more complex posts—especially those you need to do for my classes. So here’s a step-by-step way to get to the more powerful WP Admin dashboard for writing your assignment posts.

When you log into https://wordpress.com/ you come first to a READER page that lists recent posts from your sites and those you follow. If you choose to FOLLOW the course companion sites, you will find posts from those sites showing up here. On my Reader, it looks like this… pay attention to the left side where you can navigate to your sites.

If you click on MY SITES you get another screen that shows the stats for one of your sites… If you have more than one WordPress site (I have several) you can get to the one you want by choosing “SWITCH SITE“:

If you don’t have more than one site, then the one you are using for my class should be what you see. Down at the bottom of the left side menu you should see WP Admin. Click on that!
