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 […]

HUNTING FOR SPORT TO ANIMAL ADVOCATE

Kid Hunter I remember when I lived in California as a youth, I would often go hunting with my dad up to the northern part of the State for game like wild ducks, pheasants, quail and such. For my weapon of choice, he bought me a 4-10 shotgun which could fire only one shell at a time before requiring me to reload. It was a Christmas present and I cherished it, not only because it was my first weapon, but also because he allowed me to have […]

DEALING WITH OBSOLETE ELECTRONIC DEVICES

My Apps Are Fading Away I was recently informed by my online bank that their App running on my iPhone 6 Plus in the iOS 13.0 configuration would no longer be supported and that I must upgrade to a device that would handle iOS 14.0 or better. I had already been booked out of the LOWES Home Improvement App over a month ago, and Capital One was next.  To accommodate these purveyors of forward looking software machinations, I would have to upgrade my device to an iPhone […]

A RELUCTANT HERO

Antagonistic Hombre Imagine someone you know who is always in a bad mood and simply hates the world he lives in. A man who treats everyone around him like inferior human beings who simply stand in the way of his ultimate goal of getting anything he wants at someone else’s expense. Just a subversive character who makes sure he does unto others before they do unto him. You might wonder what made that creep turn into the horrifying creature that he eventually became. Or maybe think that […]

MARGHERITA PIZZA PIZZAZZ

Isabella’s Pizzeria Since both my wife and I are not pizza lovers, per se, we do not go to restaurants that specifically center their menus around the incredibly popular offering known as ‘Pizza’, but that scenario changed when we lived in Mandeville, Louisiana, a city located just north of New Orleans. A friend of my wife recommended a restaurant called Isabella’s Pizzeria, and so one Sunday after church we gave it a shot. We were not interested in the typical Pepperoni and Tomato Sauce with added Toppings […]

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 […]

CAN EVIL PEOPLE BE SAVED_PART I: FIRST THOUGHTS

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay  My Thoughts On Judas Iscariot When Jesus Christ chose his apostles, the one he knew would later betray him was already possessed of the devil. Judas Iscariot was a lover of money above all else and this was his evil undoing. Even though he followed the Savior’s teachings for three years, his heart was bent on selfish ambitions. I have often asked Christian leaders that I associated with an ominous question. In spite of all biblical evidence to the contrary, was there any possibility […]

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 […]
