You Can Be A Part Of The Revolutionary Voices Film

Yates man

Be A Part Of Preserving United States History!

I’m proud to say I’m a backer participant in the Kickstarter  of Maureen Taylor’s film “Revolutionary Voices” A Last Muster Film. She and Verissima Productions are raising funds to get this film made about Revolutionary era people who lived during the time our country was becoming a nation. I hope you will join me in helping make this historical film possible by contributing what you can to the endeavor. See more about this film by clicking the video below.

My Revolutionary War Era Ancestors 

You may not know it, but the faces you see in these images might be those of someone who was a child during the Revolutionary War era. Why do I say that? Because the people in these tintypes are of a certain age that might have fit that criteria. The tintypes are from my Yates family and my grandfather Will Yates probably inherited them when his own father Jim Yates passed away. They sat in a closet or dresser for many years until I asked for them.

Pin Button Attraction Can Cause Traffic Explosion

Adding Pin Button Attraction Can Cause Serious Traffic Explosions

There’s a new kid on the WordPress plugin block, and this blog is now using it to enhance the traffic we already have.

What makes Pin Button Attraction special? 

Pin Button Attraction is so easy to install and use. After purchasing it, I received my email with a link to the download location; it took just a few seconds to download the plugin and install it on this blog. [Note: always back up your blog before installing new plugins!] Next, I adjusted the settings to my preferences and that was it, it was ‘live’.

What is Pin Button Attraction for?

 

You know Pinterest is all the rage now and it doesn’t look like it’s going to fade away anytime soon. Now is the time to take advantage of that by allowing your images on your WordPress blog to be “pinned” by other people. The way it works is that when someone clicks an image to see it larger it has your own Pinterest pin button right on it to make it easy for them! Here, take a look at what I mean…

This is from a recent blog post about some Kentucky War of 1812 Veterans that you can view at War Of 1812 Veterans KY – John Hurt and Josiah Beckett

You have a choice in the settings for the plugin to have just the Pin It button, or the Follow Me on Pinterest one, or both. I will eventually change my setting and just include the Pin It button hereafter.

Imagine This Pin Button Scenario

You come here and like one of my images. Click on it to make it bigger and up comes the image with a Pin It button on it. You say, “Hey, Carol’s images are so cool. I’d like to pin some to one of my boards”. Click, click, click and off my images go to whirl around the interwebs creating backlinks to my blog and therefore creating link love and joy. Imagine that feature on your blog too, multiply it by a gazillion times and we all get lots more people visiting and enjoying our blogs. Win-Win!

This is an affiliate post, but I believe this is a great plugin and that’s why I’m recommending it. Interested? Get Pin Button Attraction for your WordPress blog.
