Yes, indeed, I miss the Community Pool in the Blogosphere of WordPress.
There was lots of interaction and communication. I got to chat with many bloggers and know their experiences and points of view.
Also, everybody could check each others blogs, give advices and opinions about how to improve them. I hope WP brings it back, or another similar idea would be nice.
Welcome to the final edition of the Community Pool!

We wanted to update you about an upcoming change Facebook is introducing to their platform, and which affects how you may share posts from your WordPress.com website to your Facebook account.
Starting August 1, 2018, third-party tools can no longer share posts automatically to Facebook Profiles. This includes Publicize, the tool for WordPress.com and Jetpack-powered sites that connects your site to major social media platforms (like Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook).
Will this affect your ability to share content on Facebook? It depends. If you’ve connected a Facebook Profile to your site, then yes: Publicize will no longer be able to share your posts to Facebook. On the other hand, nothing will change if you keep a Facebook Page connected to your site — all your content should still appear directly on Facebook via Publicize. (Not sure what the difference is between a Page and a Profile? Here’s Facebook’s explanation.)
If you’ve previously connected a Facebook Profile to your WordPress.com site and still want your Facebook followers to see your posts, you have two options. First, you could go the manual route: once you publish a new post, copy its URL and share the link in a new Facebook post. (You can also share right from the WordPress mobile apps after a scheduled post goes live.)
The other option is to convert your Facebook Profile to a Page. This might not be the right solution for everyone, but it’s something to consider if your website focuses on your business, organization, or brand.
While Facebook is introducing this change to improve their platform and prevent the misuse of personal profiles, we know that this might cause a disruption in the way you and your Facebook followers interact. If you’d like to share your concerns with Facebook, head to their Help Community.

When Your Patience Wears Thin, what do you do? Some people do yoga, exercise, some others pray, others get so desperate they yell, behave erratically and dangerously. There is another approach people take: ignore their feelings and put them under the rug.
For starters, there are some persons who are truly patient and can take a lot of bad actions (betrayal, lies, etc) from others without saying a word, but eventually everybody’s patience wears thin, sooner or later. What do you do when this happens to you?
I usually grab my bicycle and go out for a bike ride myself, a long one, with the road full of steep-climbs and difficulty. When I come back I jump in the swimming pool and then relax and by then, my patience is healed.
Spending time in my farm and orchard with my daughter and grandchildren gives me great pleasure. I talk to the birds, plants, my livestock, I enjoy the sunlight rays. Enjoying nature fulfills my heart.
I re-read the Goodman and Gilman Pharmacology book and spend hours creating medical hypothesis and even theories that I have proven right and published.

What do you do when your patience wears thin?
I do. That is why I love blogging. Developing a blog is so much more interesting and fun than social media. I have found out that people who do not blog or keep a journal, participate in interesting forums or write articles, become really poor in their process of thinking and their writing capabilities are an atrocity.
FACEBOOK DESTROYING THE THINKER
Blogging requires thinking, knowledge of coding, meta-tagging, and so much more. Some gray matter at work? Have you noticed the level of writing in Facebook? They do not know how to express themselves, they do not know how to write properly. I can’t be close (not even digitally) with people who lack the basic internet etiquette. It is disturbing and my brain cells are too precious for me to waste them in Facebook.
Have you ever talked to a person who only subscribes to social media and asked him or her about blogging? I have, and they are fools, sorry, but it is the truth. They know nothing about inserting coding html, meta-tags, which is so simple to do.
I use social media as what it is: a tool, not as my basic platform to spread word of business not to chat. I only chat with my connections and friends here, in my blog and LinkedIn. I prefer to keep my frontal cortex far away from those social media outlets and just use them as an instant connection thru my main blogging source.
Quality over quantity will bring you happiness and success.
TIME FOR MARKETING AND TECH TALK!
How and why do you choose the theme for your blog? Do you base your preference in a special kind of design, colors, lines, columns, sidebars, out of this world features, widgets? Does it have to be versatile or simple, vibrant, humble, elegant, challenging,
We bloggers at WordPress have a vast variety of themes where to choose and the best of all is that Google crawls its robots frequently and efficiently. I prefer to be modern in my blogging, versatile with lots of features and coding, I love coding: html, and the future of WYSIWYG in blogging looks exciting.
