| 31/08/2012I was wondering. If I filled this entire blog with "things already on the web", would the 'webmaster' delete this entire blog?........Webmaster, what is your view on this?
01/09/2012Reply from webmaster: in that case, your entire blog would be unpublished. Everybody know the rules and everybody must follow them. Sorry for the inconvenience.
01/09/2012That would be fair....But there are many fan related blogs that are published. Where would those people have gotten pictures and facts on the subject of their blog other than the internet??? And they put song lyrics on from their favourite band/singer. So why can I not put inspirational song lyrics onto my blog? And what about quotes? I can't change quotes that were said by other people.
02/09/2012Well, this rule concerns text only. About pictures, you are supposed to have owner's authorization. I will not verify it. I guess it's ok. Quotes are welcome, provided you write them yourself. About song lyrics, please, no more than 1 or 2... except if you write your own song lyrics from your own inspiration! Why not?
02/09/2012Again look at blogs about singers or bands!!! There are many pictures that were more than likely copied from a website!! And more than 1 or 2 songs on there!!!
The songs I used are from artists that are not very well known, and they sing about amazing things - like the one about racism in South Africa is actually a very old song that was resung in 2006, and the one I was about to put on about a soldier going through Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and how his wife has to take care of the family with a husband that thinks about suicide. And the one about a king that captures a beautiful woman (that represents mother nature, or the world around us). She says she will marry him only if he doesn't hunt animals just for prizes but he can't accept that so he keeps her in a tower in the forest just so he can look at her beauty all day...These are songs that make you think. And why can I not use quotes that were said by othere people? They were said for the world to hear, so why can I not put them on a blog that will be read by younger people and therefore exposing these younger people to something that otherwise they might not have cared less about? The same applies to the songs.
And the quotes that are written on top of pictures were done by a friend of mine. She is more than happy to share them with the world, on a site not only facebook.
I understand the other pictures, like the pretty one of a sunset in Singapore. I just put it on because it was so amazing, but I should have put the sunset picture I took from my own back garden (actually back veranda). But the one of the soldier reading a story book to his child over skype? And Nadia Comaneci on beam with the quote I typed beneath it "To achieve the impossible, one must think the absurd; to look where everyone else has looked, but to see what no-one else has seen"~Unknown. And the quote further on "You cannot find peace by avoiding life"~Virginia Woolf. All that was there to show that "It's impossible" is never a plausible answer!!
And the bit about the reality of Fear: You're not scared of the dark. You're scared of what's in it. Etc. and the dictionary's meaning of fear I got: n.~an unpleasant emotion caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm. I then typed: So what does it mean to not feel fear?
I don't understand how you will let a blog about fashion tips and the lastest Boy-Band secrets be, but not a blog that was intended to make the unruly youth of today stop and think that there is more to life than what length their shorts should be. That songs don't have to be about one night flings. To think that songs can have emotion and that there is someone in the world brave enough to put those songs and quotes in a place filled with average teenagers and make them leave with more in their minds than what their favourite singers dating related turn-ons are.
IF THAT IS YOUR ATTITUDE AS IS THE ATTITUDE OF MOST OF THOSE OUT THERE, I CRY FOR FOR YOU. WHAT HAS HUMANITY DONE TO ITSELF?
03/09/2012That's because of search engine's rules: unfortunally, search engines don't mind if your text is interesting or not. If your text can be found on several thousands other webpages, then all blogs may be penalyzed. So that's why I take care about this problem.
Ok, I got a solution: you can publish any song you like... not in text format, but in PICTURE format. Is this solution ok for you?
How do I do a song in picture format?
07/09/2012Oh, ok: you have to copy & paste the text in "Paint" (do you know "paint" program?).
1- if you can see the text on your screen, then you only have to press the "PrtScr" key to copy it as a picture.
2- Open your "paint" program, and then, select "edit-paste" to paste it into Paint.
3- All your screen in now included in "paint" as a large picture. So select your song text only, using your mouse. Then, select "edit-copy". Then, open another "Paint" window and select "Edit-Paste".
4- Save this picture. Remark : select "JPG" format!
WELL... there is an easier way....
1- open "Paint" program
2- click on the "A" tool (can you see it in the top page?): it allows you to write text in your picture area.
3- select a large rectangle in this picture area (using your mouse)
4- copy and paste your text in this area
5- Save it as picture in "JPG" format
