Hi to all the women that have been stopping here.I'm absolutely amazed at the volume of traffic that has come through my blog in less than a day of being logged on this directory.Great work Alana, anything to raise awareness keeps me smiling!
very glad to hear that Lisa!All the bestAlana
Hi. The columns are showing up a bit funny on my computer. The 3rd column stars very low on the page, where the middle column ends. Looks odd.Is anyone else seeing the new format in this way, or is it just me? If it's just me, any tips on how I can fix it??Thanks for any ideas.Pamposh
I doubt it's just you, browsers read code differently, which browser are you using? I checked it in safari and chrome but didnt get a chance to check it on others, also it can be a problem in older versions of internet explorer but I guess there is still a problem, will look into it later tonight. Anyone else having problems? If you are please let me knowThanks
I do use Internet Explorer and I guess an old version coz my computer's quite old (in computer terms). Thanks for looking into this, Alana, but please just do it when you can. It looks funny (on my computer), but is not much of a hassle.
Internet explorer version 6 most commonly has display problem, I have added code to try and fix it, but it's working fine for me in Internet explorer 7, firefox, safiri and chrome, so I can't tell when it's fixed, I will keep working on it.
Hi Alana. I'm afraid it's still not OK on my computer. Maybe I should just upgrade my browser coz I'm having a worse problem with another site (also an e-network)!I'm afraid I'm not terribly tech savvy, can't even figure out how to check which Explorer I have!Oh well. It's not unusable by any means. :) Pls. don't worry over-much about this, at least not on my account.
Thanks for letting me knowI've tried one last thing so hopefully it should work now, it probably is Internet explorer 6, it's known to have problems, upgrading is easy enough done, I'll look into that too.
Alana -- It's like you can read my mind! No, not your last comment, but the Google group! I actually wrote out a comment yesterday asking if we could have a space like that to discuss stuff, post things, chat with one another.. I didn't send the comment because I thought that would be asking too much of you when you're doing so much already.And then, I open the directory one day later -- and what do I see? :) [Big, big, big grin]Thanks. I've joined, of course, and even started a discussion. Hope everyone else will join soon.See ya all there!
As for Explorer, yeah, I'll look into upgrading. Next week. This week is crazy busy. I'll write a post one of these days about life with elderly parents. Lots of fun and never a dull moment. :)
Happy to see Jessica in the Google group! Welcome.Alana - What is the "pages" feature? What kind of pages would one create?Also, I was wondering if there is, or could be, a way to link back to the directory itself from the Google page?I'm sure I'm betraying my ignorance with all these questions... Ah, well, this is how one learns... :)
I have never used google groups before but there is a link to the directory under the image on the home page of the group, also I think the pages are just for different topics? you could make one on lifestyle and health tips etc, Ill look into it :) feel free to create a page or whatever you like, the group is for the members to do their own thing, whatever they want
Dear Alana,what do you think about a recent comments widget? That way we can see who has posted a new comment, where the comment was added and may be respond to these comments. Since there is a large number of members in this directory it gets a little difficult to follow the updates.
Hi rosidahI have actually been looking into a recent comments widgets as I keep missing members comments, I haven't been able to get one that works, so far, if you or anyone knows where there Is one I will definately try it outThanks!
Re recent comments - Got it!Sidebars are looking a bit cluttered though, so may have to remove something else. I like the recent comments though, it helps to keep up to dateAll the best
Thanks for adding the recent comment widget. It really made it easier to see the member updates :).
Can anyone tell me where to get a commments wideget for my blogs (on blogspot)? Grateful for any tips.Looks so good here that I thought I'd like to try it on my blogs too!
Hi Pamposh,just click add this widget to your blog on Alana's site here or on my blog if you want one without the dates and follow the steps. Best wishes!
Yiikes. I should have seen that. What can I say -- the old eyes are not what they once were, ha ha.Rosidah -- thanks so much for pointing me in the right direction. You can now see your comment on my blog. :) Terinma kasih, m'bak.
Terima kasih kembali. Wow, you can speak Bahasa Indonesia! I'm looking forward to see more postcards. Best wishes :)
Calling all travel writers. That includes those who post photos and (like me) postcards. Check out the new page on travel - Wanderlust - in the Google group. Share your thoughts, add your links...
Hi Alana. Here's my stumbleupon profile: http://pamposh.stumbleupon.com/public/Is this where I was supposed to post it? Hope so..
Hiya I would love to have my blog listed on this site, its a really good idea for woman bloggers:http://magnumlady.wordpress.com
Calling all travel writers in this group. Please add your comments to the Wanderlust page in the Google group. Send me any information you'd like to share on the page itself (not sure if you can add it directly to the page yourself).I'll be away from this site for the rest of the week, but will add anything I receive when I get back Monday. Cheers.

Hi, Alana! I'm giving you an award in recognition of all you've done, not only with this directory, but with your multiple blogs as well. Stop by my blog to pick it up, and display it on whichever blog you choose!http://www.andreaholme.blogspot.com
Thank you Andrea!I am honored you chose me, I shall have to give this a little thought as there are so many I would like to pass this award on to!I will check in to your blog later on for the detailsThank you again!
Alana: I can't get the code for photobucket to load on wordpress.com All I get is the line of type that says women's blogger directory. I did get the Sisterhood Award logo to load properly. Have you heard from anybody else in wordpress.com about this problem? Or am I doing something wrong?Vera
Hi Vera,I am not sure exactly what you are trying to do, is it the womens blogger widget? are you trying to put it in the sidebar or in a post? I haven't heard anything, if you tell me a bit more about what you need to do I will see what I can find outAll the best
Alana: I am trying to put the Women's Bloggers Directory widget into the sidebar on my wordpress.com blog. The usual way is to copy the code and enter it into a box labeled text, which is listed under the widgets. (as I mentioend, this worked for the sisterhood award, I took the code from the original designer's site) But Wordpress for some reason does not like the photo link in yours, so it eliminates it when I paste your code in. That leaves me with a plain line of type that says Woman's Blogger Directory, but no image.
Vera, I don't use wordpress so I am not sure, in blogger you add the code to an html widget, is there one available on wordpress that you could try? If any member that uses wordpress has any idea, please let us know!If you can't get it to work you can just add a regular text link if you prefer?
To all the travel enthusiasts in the Directory: I've just updated the travel page (Wanderlust) in the Google group. Go take a look!Happy armchair travelling!
Hi Alana. I hope you're not getting tired of receiving the Sisterhood Award!! Coz you just got another one.I really had to give it to you for this directory - it's been so wonderful for all of us here and such a help with reaching out to others with our writing.So - with some trepidation because I can imagine how busy you must be - I ask you please to visit my Wandering Pam blog (http://wanderingpam.blogspot.com) to check out your latest award.With love,Pamposh
thank you Pamposh !I'm on my way to your blog now :)I am a bit behind, I haven't yet added my other award to my other blog yet, but I will as soon as possibleAs this blog has recieved the sisterhood award 3 times I will display the award in the sidebar, I love the idea behind this award and I think a sisterhood award is very fitting for this site. I need a day or two to think about passing it on and then I will post about itThanks again!
Alana--I received the Sisterhood Award myself, and wanted to give it to you for the fantastic work you have done in setting up WBD, even though I know you've had it awarded before. I think you truly deserve this recognition, and maybe you should even be getting a Super Sisterhood Award! It's up at http://www.scribblecitycentral.blogspot.com if you want to hop over and see what I said about you!
Congratulations Shirley for a lovely blog. I'd like to congratulate the other 2 nominees as well for their great blogs. With so many members now, it can be hard to visit each blog as often as one would like. But the 3 nominated blogs deserve a special visit today!
Hi Alana,I'm having trouble when trying to select a blog by category, it lets me select the category, but nothing happens! I feel like I'm missing out!Any ideas?thanks,Lisa
