WordPress.com Finally Has The Google Translate Widget

Today the WordPress.com News blog/website released a post called: Your Site, Now In Other Languages: Introducing The Google Translate Widget.

In that post WordPress.com announced the release of the Google Translate Widget.

The Google Translate Widget uses Google Translate to translate your blog/website into other languages when someone uses this widget.

This widget has been requested many times for many years by many people (including me), probably since the early years of WordPress.com, and so it is long overdue and a bit late; but it is better late than never in this case I guess.

I have decided to enable the Google Translate Widget on my blog even though I do not really care about it now anymore (I am neutral about it now probably after giving up on it ever being released on WordPress.com years ago), but maybe it will prove helpful/useful to someone; and so I will try it out for now.

Thank you for finally releasing this widget after all of these years WordPress.com. 👴

Day Six: Make an Irresistible “About” Page

We read blogs because we love the people behind them.

When a visitor is intrigued by your site, they’ll want to know more about you.

Today, create and publish an “About” page, and adapt it into a widget for your home page.

Here’s how:

  1. First, create a new page by clicking on the button below.
  2. Next, write your description — use your Day One post for inspiration if you’d like — and click Publish.
  3. Finally, go to My Site > Customize, then select the Widgets tab. Add a Text Widget with a one- or two-sentence version of your story, and click Save and Publish.

Create a new page

Widgets are little items you can add to your blog to provide more information, like a short description of who you are, a photo, your latest tweets, and more.

Today you’ll add a Text Widget, but there are dozens of options — Learn more in the tools and tips for this assignment.

We’re looking forward to learning more about you and your blog!

Cheers,
Michelle W. and the WordPress.com Team

My High School Spanish Teacher Mrs. M? | My Aunts Talking About The V/H/S Films | John Luther Undercover

Dream 1

I forgot several of my dreams from last night but I do barely remember part of three dreams, all that I can remember of my first dream is that I think that it involved my former high school Spanish teacher Mrs. M, and she had her class / students with her.

I am assuming that maybe I was in this class and/or I was helping with this class but I am not sure if this was a Spanish class or a French class (because I am once again doing a bit of studying French on Duolingo again) or another type of class, and we were inside a windowless building.
