Sonny & Cher?

Dream 1

I barely remember part of the end of this dream from last night that took place during the day outside mostly in a courtyard and parking lot-like area between several businesses and maybe a hospital.

One part of the dream possibly involved my male cousin ME and I talking and maybe going to several stores, and another part of the dream involved my former male classmate JH and I talking and going to several businesses.

One of the businesses was a grocery store, one was a small general store that mostly sold food, one was a food stand-like restaurant, and there was possibly one or two others.

I remember my former classmate JH wanting to do something that I was not sure if it was legal or not, I can not remember what but I remember him saying that it was okay, and it involved going inside one of the businesses.

There was more to this dream, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is being inside a windowless dimly lit house or apartment-like building in a room, I know that my parent’s were there, and I remember finding a photograph in a picture frame of my dad sitting in a dimly lit room on a couch next to a woman and man who were looking down so you could not see their faces.

The photograph seemed to be from the 1970s and for some reason I assumed that the woman and man were Sonny & Cher, I assumed that they were at a party or something at the house of someone my dad knew, but I was not sure so I went to ask my parent’s if that was Sonny & Cher and if my dad knew them.

I probably found my mom but I did not find my dad so I continued looking for him to ask him, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it involved me watching a viral video that a family recorded, the video took place in a dimly lit windowless apartment or hotel or house-like room, and a family (husband, wife, kids, aunts, uncles, cousins, et cetera) with white skin were standing together doing a group hug and maybe talking or chanting and maybe crying.

After this they laughed and separated leaving a baby boy and maybe two other kids alone in the room with no one watching the baby, magically I was standing in the room, and the baby was crawling around wearing only a diaper.

I did not want to leave the baby there alone so I tried to wait for an adult to return, but this was a problem because they did not know me and I was not supposed to be there; and I had no idea how I magically appeared in the place where the viral video was recorded.

It was like I was teleported into this memory of the event, so this was an awkward situation, but I did not want the baby to hurt itself so I stood there waiting for an adult; but I woke up.

Day Ten: Build a Better Blogroll

Today, let’s continue to weave the fabric of the blogosphere using one of the web’s essential tools: links.

Today’s assignment: use a widget to create a blogroll, a list of links you love that you want to share with your readers.

Here’s how:

  1. First, decide what kind of widget you want to use: the Blogs I Follow widget, or a Text widget.
  2. Next, click the button below to open the Customizer, then select Widgets, and add the widget you want to use.
  3. Finally, customize the widget’s settings and/or add your text, then click Save & Publish.

Recommendations are like getting advice from a friend rather than blindly searching the internet; adding them is a no-brainer — and often comes with traffic-building benefits.

Open the Customizer

The Blogs I Follow Widget will generate a list of your most recently-followed blogs automatically, while the Text Widget requires you to enter text and links yourself.

Michelle W. and the Team

I find it strange that the widget designed for blogrolls which is called the Links widget was not mentioned for this part of the course and that there is a blogroll option (feature) in the Links Menu built into itself and that the Links widget shows your blogrolls that you created on in the Links Menu, and so I have contacted the staff using their Contact Page to report this strange omission of that widget and that option (feature).

I am also surprised that they did not mention Reader Lists.

Instead of using either of those three widgets I am now using my About page to show my blogroll (links) and the Posts I Like widget to save space in my sidebar and for a few other reasons.

The end,
