Are you always inspired to write a post on time? Do you ever sit and stare at a blank white screen, your mind a blank for anything to write, while picturing a boss or another authority figure standing right behind you reading over your shoulder, stomping their foot? It means something if you think of the rhythm of those feet stomping, is it from the left or right? Perhaps I’ll write about that… Better put in a picture, it could inspire me… Good for SEO as well. I’ll put a link to my host on it and it could inspire you to buy a website and hire me as your manager! You’ll learn more than inspirational postings! On to those stomping feet…
Are you inspired yet?
Well, not really… You erase those words describing that storming stomping boss, the way the cigar smelled that person was chomping on as they were screaming about deadlines and paychecks not being written until… Yea, that darn left foot stomp. *sigh*. Back to that blank space. A thought comes! No, it fades, has no connection. Perhaps go make a sandwich, oh wait- Global News is on! Ham and Cheese with Cranberry sauce sounds good while the sports are on…
Will the post ever get written, that imaginary boss asks. You are again reminded of deadlines. Midnight looms. Oh yea. Those personal deadlines, drat them. Does that clock say 4 now? That blank white screen is so boring. Oh cool! There’s Facebook in another tab to distract you! At 6, some breakfast on the way to the bed. There has to be a better way to be inspired for that post! You Stumble upon this link below and Holly cow, the words just start flowing! Look Boss! I found this resource and now I’m pounding out at least 300 words and other characters and all that Targeted Text to draw eyes to our website and that Gotham Steel () product! Looks like you will have to be satisfied with this one, I hope it helps you create a winning post!
Plugins take away from dedicated time as they need updates. Best done before you do writing but with me on the job, no worries. Once the updates are started from an account on the dashboard the account holder must wait till the update finishes before writing. Many writers suffer from distractions interfering with brain flows, some updates can take a few minutes. You will need plugins to make your WordPress website useful and the spark to potentially become profitable when lots of people view, simplifying jobs that save you thousands of dollars. Writing effectively can be easy and quick once you learn targeted writing and learn a few easy tricks to find the right words to write. Just that time-consuming management and upkeep that prevents many from exploring their writing skills and it discourages professional writers over time who often know how to update the free stuff and write, nothing else. Plus, some core updates can shut you and the site down for a spell. Those operations won’t disturb a writer if done remotely and if an error in publishing a finished work, the option may need to reload all other accounts logged in and the writer attempts the publish again. I know for a fact that a site can be updated by another trusted account holder (maintenance person) remotely while another (you or your writers) publishes a post on the domain being updated. I rarely log into your dashboard except to install the plugins below, make sure you are cleaning broken links as they will be visible and quick to fix by the original author on our shared dashboard, once that person is aware and on top of it. I do the maintenance remotely with the last plugin I’ll install with the Broken Link Checker plugin among those below. That one I may reconsider as it has not been updated in a while (sometimes they release an update late after a core update. Last one was only 6 months ago as I type). I might be a vulnerability and a security risk until an update is done. I have to look for a replacement, as manually searching for broken links is very time-consuming even for me and it’s a common problem as some links just vanish after linking I haven’t tested URL scanning for broken link accuracy yet, for WordPress anyway.
Those pesky time-consuming Plugins saving time!
I spend those micro-minutes 24/7/365 doing the job to manage your precious WordPress controlled website, ensuring it runs smooth for every of your visitors, human or bot (). I am ready when major problems occur, some can cause your site to fail totally. Your server and I will communicate if you cannot or an update causes a problem. You have no worries, like insurance. You are protected with my hire. When updates are done immediately, optimization and cleaning of old post versions done, website backed up regularly too. All you need to do is write, get better at it and learn. Perhaps prosper.
No guarantees. Plugins are only as good as they come, the simple way
Plugins can be hand written using a code I only just learned called PHP. I bow to others who have more skill in developing those plugins I cannot update, that’s done by those experienced coders who create them. It is you who will educate me further. Thank you for all you do. Best I can promise, users of WordPress.Com plugins, is no added cash out without discussion, advisement over the length of your domain. Most plugins will be free there, the ones you’ll want at first. They will make your investment of time and coin better and you’ll feel more progressive as your site will come simple. Of course I am aware I am one of many who could do this for you, even some of the experienced coders. Some auto update features of your domain for core updates from dashboard features from WordPress that I’ll setup on your new domain or if not set on an existing domain will reduce our workload further. I do thank you for allowing me to do this job or at least considering me.
The Plugins I install
You may have suspected or noticed (will notice) in your plugin list once I manage your website a few plugins I installed and perhaps you have enjoyed using some of them. I have had no feedback other than thanks. The SEO key plates before you post, underneath your edited posts requesting SEO looking information, optimization and sharing tools as well. You should have almost immediately noticed the analytic views inspiring you to post more “like-minded” targeted posts further amplifying your views on a cornerstone post that attract more eyes and focus on a single subject with diverse views, like the ones that get the most views and where the majority of your visitors come from for that post and the site in general. We’ll start with those two
One plugin records daily or weekly visits to your website and your top posts, as well as doing many other important things effortlessly and non invasive behind the scenes. It’s a friendly plugin called Jetpack, which controls spam, some SEO and other important tools. The other is a little more robust, appropriately called Google Analytics Dashboard for WP . It helps connect your WordPress website to Google Analytics, directly influencing your overall ratings at that major search engine. That’s its only job. It will install a sitemap which will help it help you immensely. There is another doing more focused looks at Website visitors, can do real-time, weekly, monthly and annual visitors. This is handy to see instantly how popular posts are going as you write them, letting you know what your reader want to see for future posts. It’s a feature of the multi tasking JetPack plugin described above.
A plugin for security
There are two I like, one or the other will protect your site. Each has different features, better if paid but real good free. This one I have working on Volunteer Prince George‘s website, and this one I have on mine and Carefree’s website. They both have impressive features free and protect against Brute force attacks. They both come high rated from suites such as WordPress Beginner.com
Of course you’ll need a dependable backup method. Worst case scenario, your server crashes and you lose all your posts. It can happen. It will even protect you if your website is hacked, totally messed up due to a plugin error or another rare mishap wipes your information clean. It’s never a good idea to store your backup on a server that hosts your website as in the case of a virus affecting the server. The backup file could be compromised with your website and takes up space better used on your server. The plugin we’ll use for this job is called “UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore“. I will work with you to set up and share with me the Google Drive Backup Folder it will create in your Google Drive account. You will need to have a Google Account for that drive which starts free with multi gigabyte storage. That way, I can effortlessly restore your website to the last backup (usually done within the week of needed time) if ever needed. It will also help if you move your website to another host after this 5 years is history.
Another Plugin that I will install into your dashboard allows you or a viewer to share it to personal and connected social media feeds sharing your post to the social media world of your visitors. This is a big help when you write posts interesting enough to be shared. It’s visible after posting and viewing the post online. That one is called AddToAny Share Buttons. I find it useful as many who enjoy your posts can share them effortlessly to their personal feeds and contacts who could propel your writing to high-ranking at Google, opening up some stronger potential that your website can profit! One thing I’ll never guarantee is profit. It takes some effort to produce winning posts and sharing the information.
Auto Posting Plugin
Followers of my Facebook page will notice a posting tend. When a post is published here on my domain, it shares automatically to my Facebook page feed. This is called “Auto Sharing”. It can share to multiple feeds like the plugin above, many options are available and paid versions we can decide on. Many other plugins are available to auto share from WordPress.com, but then a solitary plugin doing a solitary job for each job required is such a clutter and can bog your website down, reducing Google Ranking. To have your post open on a Facebook page or personal feed should be a goal of yours. By placing Jetpack linked above, and by configuration setup and entering some feeds, your posts will automatically share to your feed to risk being shared further. Can you write a viral post? Find out here!
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) plugin:
The “All In One SEO Pack” that I’ll install adds that section (*Guide) below your writing field where you can input keywords, set the title text, write the description that shares with the search engine results looking for your site and in social media shares, set the featured keyword, fill it to exceed the minimum recommended amount of total text, place text blocks with header text logically placed with the text between the headers not exceeding that limit. I may install this one and / or Yoast which does some of this too. Yoast also gives you an SEO tool free of charge to look for keywords to write targeted text.
The Plugin I use to manage your website
This is the last plugin I will place in your collection. it allows the use of this plugin on a unique url to update and optimize your website and allows me to avoid entering your dashboard except occasionally is called ManageWP – Worker Loader and it comes from behind that link. As explained below, it is self maintained.
Other Plugins I install will be discussed with you directly as they influence other parts of your site which are unlimited within predictable limits. I’ll try not to slow down your website or lower your standings at Google and other search engines. If you are deciding on a website and this seals the deal, don’t look any further and click this link or the image below and consider me for that manager position!
We get the Housing news and share it far and wide!
News of housing is always a good move, makes great news. City of Prince George has it on their website, linked below. Hope it can shine above and be seen. Usually, it’s not too good the news we hear in many areas of the globe, and even within Canada, British Columbia and yet here in Prince George (where we rose above our Crime Capitol status in 2017 as the first bit of good news my city shared to the world), we got several articles of good news this year! This housing plan could work for the city who have always wanted to have a large population living directly in the Downtown area.
What area will this housing occupy?
The walk from residences along Queensway, from beyond South Fort George past 20th Ave, the Millar Addition to Patricia Blvd towards downtown can be a very scenic, accessible walk (weather allowing) which streams through Lower Connaught Hill Park, past the Worker’s Memorial and across Patricia Blvd. Travelers wandering across BC on foot as well pass this area on Queensway and walk on by at present, nothing to attract them but trouble.
The new housing will go in the now empty properties directly across from City Hall, beside the sidewalk that runs from Queensway Street at 6th Ave, down Patricia Blvd rounding the corner at George Street going past the Keg. The lots to be used were once occupied by an auto repair shop that closed by the late 1990’s and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, who moved out to Continental Way, south of the city around 2010 or shortly after. “Ed Delorme’s Auto Repair” was neighbor to City Hall first, the Prince George Farmers Market and the Keg too, being there for many years before those 2 were even thought of. Enterprise Rent-A-Car was not there for very long. It had quietly opened sometime after the auto shop had closed. Some events in Prince George like Summerfest and other “snow free month” events use the fronting area along George Street to 5th, 7th from Dominion to George past Fire Station #1 using city hall property as well. City Hall grounds and those streets are also the home of Foodie Fridays for open air vendors sponsored by local diners, quite often those roads are closed for a summer concert during that time. The Farmers Market was even able to expand summer operations somewhat when the shop was cleared and an off street parking area for vendors opened up. They close that block of the street every Saturday, 52 weeks of the year excluding holidays falling on that day of the week. Enjoy a roll around this area in the winter before to the construction, taken January, 2018. Some of my voice points to the possibility in some future of having absorbent sidewalks made from plant material, Industrial Cannabis could be used. In weather like this year it could help lots. I’m writing another post on that later, stay tuned!
A plan for occupants of the housing, a partnership with small business?
A possible idea for the new residence to come would have some form of 24/7/365 commerce network from the sidewalk bordered bottom floor of the housing once built, perhaps staffed by residents if they need a job. They could live in the “store” operating as a walk-up or in neighboring units if stores open services inside and out. This income could help subsidize rents for all the tenants so anyone could live there. Read on for my idea of a “trade network” which others may be thinking of too, I feel it does fit into the plan of the area it will inhabit as far as I can see. Refer to the image above. Consider the natural pedestrian traffic flow past the future building. The popular public, vehicle free events in the fronting areas along George Street directly in front of the housing. Prince George’s overall commitment to civic health. Our civic leaders are also aware of the benefits of a population who walk from residence or work to do whatever business local outside the home or during work breaks beyond the health benefits.
What products could be sold to supplement the housing?
When people shop locally within a community, the city always wins. The use of vehicles is reduced beyond that. Those drivers have more pocket change to spend locally as far as I see things as their fuel costs are reduced. Sometimes that’s a lot of the cost of a provincial force within the community. Local staff using provincial vehicles can explore the community without that cost. All downtown staff can walk to the place where they can purchase their lunches in the downtown (with employers encouraged to promote this), supporting the entire community. Then people discover local trade like the fine clothing stores and diners available “next door” to where they work. You do know how popular hot beverages like Coffee, Tea are in the am, better than home made often? Add some beverages made from natural products as an alternative which are new to many of us, with flavors many find interesting. All made from natural healthy locally grown plants, fruits, berries, fungi , tree growths. Available for all who want them, prepared or ready to prepare at home or work. Grab a bag of food on the way, go to work or destination along the walk 24 7 365 (except for summertime’s downtown event times to not cause conflicts) and be productive. Walkers could even pick up something for the road that evening too.
Sounds simple…Like the overall housing idea
It’s a natural idea to have those “Sidewalk Shops” open in the first floor units that face the sidewalks, ready to start serving walk up patrons as soon as the building is occupied. Those walking city residents and provincial visitors of all nations could be traveling to civic destinations available past there with exotic and family friendly food and beverages to refresh and nourish along their way. Perhaps in a legal world, cannabis too, locally grown. A self Management system, working with and partnering with the City of Prince George, perhaps strengthening connections to Northern Health and diverse natural industries for our city, providing paid work for citizens and attractants for new residents. The negatives have yet to be realized, the known positives could out-weigh those.
Cannabis too!!? How can that help the housing?
That would become the mandate of the businesses; all products must be local grown, created and safe for all ages. A Co-Op could form from all the vendors and selected customers, regulating itself. The cannabis distributors, considering the history and to dispel Refer Madness thinking, could amplify awareness of the healthy inert raw uses including beverages, steering consumer thoughts away from the activated uses for medical and recreational. They can find that product information elsewhere not so family friendly at present, information and directions would be given when requested. Sales of Cannabis Buds to minors won’t ever happen as a rule. No activated products would be available, no product except Raw Bud could be activated for recreational. Safe. This would be keeping with the mandate.
Cannabis and the housing’s neighbors
How does that fit into the plan of the neighborhood you ask. In the non-activated world of the housing complex and the majority of the retail businesses, it makes a fermented sauerkraut type food which has the same effect on your brain as that product you know and some people enjoy. It could even be added to local diners as a choice on the menu. Diverse tastes… In a more adult oriented world, that activated industry could supplement the Craft Brewery just down the street. When activated and fermented, it makes a diverse choice of fine ales, wines and vodkas. Some as tame as an average strength beer to a totally wicked, steeped in Refer Madness Vodka drink from conventional Vodka nicknamed the “Green Dragon” which was banned in the early days of Canada’s prohibition. I’ve been told it’s more relaxing and healthier for humans than traditional Vodka as is all the new flavors yet to be created. It can be just another craft beer, and the LCB of BC would be welcome to handle the rest of the liquid alcoholic forms of Cannabis. The Keg, and/ or other diners in the area including Crossroads Brewery could add Activated Cannabis infused drinks & food to their menus as could the food stores down the way with industrial, raw, activated and infused Cannabis forms. New flavors for familiar food & beverages including new tastes attracting the world to downtown, improving Prince George’s economy overall. Have you actually seen how communities in Legal US states and Perhaps Vancouver are doing financially with the Cannabis industry?
Won’t Cannabis bring a bad rep to the housing?
In a legal world and the growing local acceptance of Cannabis, who cares what they do with the raw product (Buds) once purchased by an adult who supports the building? All the distributors of Cannabis can do is make the consumers aware only of harmless inert healthy raw uses and blending raw fruit, vegetable with Cannabis into beverages and food. When asked bout those uses, all they can do is encourage patriotism of other ready facilities geared towards the products they seek. They can’t restrict the use of that product any further than any smoked consumable around their public areas. Just adding this, no one has ever been hurt by any use of the plant in well over 5,000 years of any use but everyone should respect boundaries of public with any smoked consumption. Well, no one has been harmed other than the laws surrounding it in North America. That information can be found on other websites.
Where would Cannabis product come from to the housing and throughout the downtown core?
Room could be added under the building to grow product in abundance, perhaps added area to the parking lot with an expansion far under the buildings of the city eventually. 24/7/365 staffing would give security. It could all be vented into the city’s storm drain system, which would make them smell better and perhaps stimulate other natural biodiversity. The benefits to the environment industrially will be seen in futures yet to arrive, in yet another post on that subject. The University of Northern British Columbia could even partner in this part of it and supply our medically supported Northern Health ( as another shared partner of the City of Prince George) community at the gateway to their vast territory of largely empty land and concentrated smaller communities. Then they could supply the people of BC in their connected medical networks with credible information about the plant as well as what works for people within specific medical communities. They could further send seeds developed in the lab to the patients to begin seeing positive result from new strains developed. New seeds and strains geared to medical communities and fine tuned to people within that community. Other non-effective medicinal strains can be recreational in use, perhaps preventive and distributed locally that way. This housing could literally grow the entire community with Cannabis and strengthen partnerships we have with local, provincial and national organizations, industries and businesses.
Thanks for reading this post, I hope we can talk business someday soon! If you like the WalkNRoll Facebook page, these posts now auto post to that feed. Like it, never miss a post. Tyia. I’m working on one now, to explain why you need me as your Manager to keep your WordPress Blog (If that’s what you desire) updated, ensuring your Website security beyond what you can control.

Spoiler alert – We need to create active outdoor opportunities for all. That means independent mobility for all ability levels, including the most dependent citizens using mobility devices or have no vision. The most independent among us with no disability won’t be prevented from sharing “WalkNRoll” areas if it’s the norm. Designing it with the needs of people with a mobility impairment in mind does not stop anyone. Everywhere outside the residence, where we work, where we recreate, where we visit must be made for everyone who could use it, enjoy it, and work towards the personal health goals we all have. We create our living spaces, then we adapt to them until we can’t then we move.
A community which prepares first for citizens and visitors who walk or otherwise keep up a transportation network not dependent on traditional vehicular traffic from home to destination and includes that active transportation diversity in its design features, welcomes everyone inclusively. That “perfect” community enjoys good health in their citizens and a generally stable population mentally despite having persons with a disability among their able-bodied citizens with no visible problems. It often attracts lots of visitors as well, tourism is a major industry in every healthy active community.
We are a social species. Unconsciously most of the time, when we see others walking from home to a destination (or independently moving without a vehicle rather), it stimulates most of us to step out of the door and not use the car. If we can that is, where the sidewalks have curbs and our residential stairs don’t block us, we all could. Some of us have mobility devices, we could travel as safe as many who don’t have a mobility device do, often along side of us where we can roll safe. We will stay healthy better with the same activity outside the residence as you do without any disability. The link below will educate communities and each visionary like us who sit on civic committees and boards in those communities! Onward to 2018, one step closer to inclusion and health in our nation starting with each community and regions! Remember to renew your commitment to that civic committee or board soon! Thanks for doing all you do for everyone, everyday.
NCHPAD (USA based “National Center on Health, Physical Activity and Disability”) is happy to be a supporter of this year’s Park and Recreation Month led by the National Recreation and Park Association. This year’s theme is, “Get Your Play On!” For people with disabilities, discovering the power of play starts with access, opportunity, and inclusion. Through organized efforts to create opportunities for people with disabilities, we can address health disparities that lead to physical inactivity.
