OK Google – Share With Who?

I just noticed that the posts that I share to Google Plus are only being shared with… me.

Somehow or other the setting is to do that and not share to my circles or to the public.

How did that happen?

I took a look at the Support page at Publicise and it has a section that reads as follows:

Changing who can see your Publicized posts on Google+

After you have authorized your Google+ connection, you can change this setting by going to Settings > Manage apps & activities from within Google+.

Except that whilst I can see ‘Settings’, I can’t see ‘Manage apps & activities from within Google+’

So I unlinked the G+ link and re-linked G+ and now I am testing it with this post.


Oh I see – it’s in G+ on the ‘apps’ ┬ápage that I have to edit who my WordPress posts are shared with. I had it set to ‘only me’ I kind of knew it would have to be within G+ but I couldn’t find it, and the setting description looked like it was within WordPress. Oh well, all clear now.

A Stork

I’ve been busy. I am still busy but I think I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I’m building an e-commerce store with Woocommerce. Actually, I am building two stores – one for trade (B2B) and one for consumers (B2C).

I’ll do a big, long blog post about it when I have finished, but for now – here is a stork, which is part of an image for what I am working on.

More later…



Jim is homeless. He would rather have a home he says, but he won’t have one on someone else’s terms if it turns him into something he doesn’t want to be.

He’s bright and I think he has an interesting life for all it hardships. Winters here in Scotland must be terribly cruel.

I took the first photo with the Fuji, and the next two images are crops from the full frame. I took the last photo with my phone.





Not All Birds Of Paradise Can Fly


As usual, click the image for a bigger version.

Strelitzia – genus named after the duchy of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. Why?

Known as the Bird of Paradise flower or the crane flower.

Pollinated by birds, who perch on the spathe. Their weight opens and releases the pollen onto the bird’s feet, which is then deposits on the next flower it visits.

I found out why the plant is named after Queen Charlotte. This is from the Kew Gardens site:

The bird-of-paradise flower, or crane flower as it is sometimes known, was first introduced into Britain in 1773 by Sir Joseph Banks, then the unofficial director of the Royal Gardens at Kew (as they were known at that time). He named the exotic-looking plant Strelitzia in honour of Queen Charlotte, wife of George III and Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz, who lived at Kew for many years.
