UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE WORDPRESS GUTENBERG BLOCK EDITOR_PART I: BASIC FIRST STEPS

WordPress Classic Editor To Bite The Dust When I first created my website, SJKeyChronicles.com, back in 2018, I had to learn a lot of functions to make myself proficient incorporating When I first created my website, SJKeyChronicles.com, back in 2018, I had to learn a lot of functions to make myself proficient incorporating the WORDPRESS Classic Editor Format. This allowed me to write halfway decent articles that readers would find acceptable. Even though I had help from my mentor, Jim Daniels @ bizweb2000.com, I had to figure out a lot of […]

UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE WORDPRESS GUTENBERG BLOCK EDITOR_PART II: BASIC MEDIA INSERTIONS

Recap Of Part I I stated in my previous article “UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE WORDPRESS GUTENBERG BLOCK EDITOR_PART I”, that it was the first time that I used the Block Editor to write a blog. Kind of risky revealing my learning curve to an audience while I am actually plodding through the process of discovering the basics of the program as I solve each piece of the puzzle in my quest. But that makes the task much more interesting than pursuing some boring explanation of what […]

COMMENTARY DILEMMA PART III: NEW SPAM CHECKER INSTALLED

Reidentification of My Followers I have been remiss in posting new blogs of late because the massive revision work and republishing efforts involved with my first two novels, along with the commensurate completion of my latest creation, have all but chewed up the allowable time I had available. In the meantime, through all of that, my daughter, Stephanie, suggested I write a children’s book for my grandsons, Joshua and Daniel. I had begun writing the first part of that manuscript in spurts, but stopped when I ran […]

LEARNING TO WRITE: TO BE OR NOT TO BE

Falling Out Of Favor With My Nemesis I have recently discovered that my writing skills have been hampered by using one cursed word way too much. It is the glue word “TO”. It has become my easy sentence manipulator and has made my writing talents look less than professional. I have discovered that some sentences written in my previous articles have the word “TO” gluing phrases together as many as 3 or 4 times. That’s almost as bad as using adverbs more than absolutely (adverb) necessary. Let me […]

MY KINDLE DIRECT PUBLISHING EXPERIENCE: PART VI_HEADERS,FOOTERS, & PAGINATION

  Artwork By Stephen J. Key/SJKeyChronicles Frustrations Abound With No Clear Answers When I wrote my third novel, I thought I could save a lot of time and frustration by taking the interior matter of my raw manuscript and just pasting it over the highlighted part of the formatted interior matter of my previously published novel. To a certain extent, this worked fine. The correct margins were maintained and I was able to fixate the chapter titles, sub titles, and quotes in their correct style sets on […]

THE WARPED WISDOM OF MEIN ONE SON: THE BB KING SHAKES AND BAKES

This story was submitted by our son Eric Key. SJKeyChronicles.com does not condone any of his shenanigans carried out as a youthful misfit. Fortunately he has morphed into a respectable human being having put his misadventures behind him.  Hindsight Hallucinations My name is Eric Key and I must point out one thing as I begin this convoluted tale of mine. In today’s day and age, we are seeing more confrontations and disrespect towards our law enforcement officers. For the record, yes, I am pro-cop.  I’m not sure […]

MY NINE YEAR OLD LAPTOP WITH BROKEN CASE

Sad State Of Affairs My son Eric, who used to own a computer repair shop in Canton, New York, headed up the acquisition of a new laptop computer for me in the year 2010, and I have been using it for the last 10 years. He was able to get a good deal for me for about $700 back then. The only major improvements he made to it in that span of time was to upgrade the RAM and Hard Drive when the original parts became obsolete. […]

A PARODY OF THE ICONIC HALLMARK ROMANCE MOVIE: FLIP SIDE ROMANCE

My First Movie Script This blog is sort of a sequel to one that I wrote about Hallmark Christmas movie offerings entitled “The Iconic Hallmark Christmas Movie”. Since it was a satirical look at the typical plot engendered by Hallmark to celebrate romantic endeavors during the Christmas Holiday  season, I thought it would be interesting to create an antithesis plot in contrast to the way they envision love stories during the rest of the year. “MY PARODY OF THE ICONIC HALLMARK ROMANCE MOVIE: FLIP SIDE ROMANCE” So […]
