Blind Author’s Inspiring Message Transforms Book Cover Competition

Here we are again on this WordPress Wednesday and this time we have author blogger, Donna W. Hill to talk to us about her book and what she’s up to.

The Heart of Applebutter Hill

October is one of my favorite months. It’s a great time to take a vacation, but this year, I’m doing no such thing. In fact, I’m working harder than I ever have. Earlier this month, my educator-recommended novel, The Heart of Applebutter Hill, was chosen for the AllAuthor “Cover of the Month” Competition. I’m so excited to report that it is now in round three – the top 50 vote-getters!

  1. Hi Patty, thanks for re-blogging! 🙂

      Hi Donna.

      You’re welcome. I was going to press it and add categories and tag words so that it would make it more findable for Google searches but you don’t have a Press This option.

      Glad to share though and congratulations on how well you’ve done so far with this.

  2. I put categories & tags in the post, but I’ll have to look into Press This. I’ve often wondered what that meant. Didn’t even know I didn’t have it. *grin*

      Press This is another way for someone to share onto their blog from your blog.

      If you go here onto my blog and you choose to share a post by using that feature it will come up much like when you start a new post. If you’ve noted like for example today’s post by Abbie Johnson Taylor, I’ve edited the title of her post slightly. First, once I’d pressed the Press This option and had her post onto my blog, before I published it I edited the title slightly by copying the title of her post onto my clipboard. Then I selected the text from the title which appeared in the title field just as when you’re doing a new post, and deleted it. I then wrote, WordPress Wednesday-Author’s Corner: and after that I then pasted the title back in.

      Then when I arrowed down to the post portion of the post, it read via and showed the link to her blog. Using the paste as text option so I could have a solid stabile edit field to work with I then wrote my greeting, and then before posting, even though she had categories and tags in her post I added mine which included the WordPress Wednesday and Author’s Corner categories and a few tag words of my own. The reason I do things this way is to ensure that those searching on Google have a good chance when using my tag words as keywords no matter what they’re searching for torun across the post.

      The name of the game is upping the odds for people to find the post.

      • Patty, Wow, that sounds great. Now, tell me. Do you have the ability to schedule the post for sometime in the future, as we do in a standard post? One way or the other, I’ll enable it, or whatever they call it. But if I could just schedule reblogs, oh, I can’t tell you how handy that would be. 🙂


      • Patty says:

        Yes, and to find and activate your Press This feature just go into your blog’s sharing options.
