Every day we move to make moves is a day that our heart gets a workout.

This has been such a move! Congratulations to Loriane and to all for taking the action. I hope for a good collaboration and a great continuing of good friendships.

I wrote a post at OS That has some tips to get and keep us all together. I hope that you will find a tip or two that works for you.

(Tip number one: google search penalizes you and pushes your stuff to another page when you publish the same article in more than one place)

Here are flowers for the host and for the future!

the tip about how posting in multiple  places degrades your google search results is a good one.   i think while open salon is still up & running if you want to just post links here to your posts there rather than reposting the entire piece, that would be fine and not interfere with your google results.

or cross post...whichever makes you happy!

That is so true! I so love having a real editing platform again that I will probably put the links at OS. ha ha!

i like that the comments section has more functionality here, so adding links in comments, text enhancements like bold, Italic, strikethrough and underline are there for the non-html folks.

Nice photo. I had no idea that google search was so interested in my duplicate postings!!!! I will be more careful next time! Thanks so much Xenonlit. It is good to have computer savvy friends. I am happy this site is here, thank you so much Lorianne. It seems like a nice place to be.

Thanks for the tips. I am trying to figure out how to invite people. Or can I just send them a link to any page?

It's weird with Google. They have an algorithm called Panda which has been wreaking havoc every month or so. Every change brings low views, high views. For me, it adds up to money and I don't like the changes.  It's ridiculous. 

Gahhhh I love this rich editing!

Thank you, Lorianne, for doing this. So far, so good.

This tip is why I quit doing any sort of cross-posting between my Cheap Bastid Cooks website and OS.  What I'll do on OS for Cheap Bastid is something short and which is non-repetitive.

My wife has 2 web-based businesses, one her own vintage jewelry and the other an "affiliate marketing site" and she pulls her head out every time Google runs Panda or otherwise messes with the algorithms.  She's systematic about her efforts to tweak SEO and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.
