Update for February

Well last night was a lesson in how much time you can spend on the computer without accomplishing very much! Spent the entire night trying to figure out a better way of making a map of the topics in the posts. The result (which doesn’t work yet) is on the page entitled “Map of Ideas”… it is a Mind Map …

Changes

Sometimes you take a very long and arduous journey and end up right back where you started, only with a new appreciation for what you left behind. This is the story of our forum… After spending many hours working with a developer to come up with a new forum for this site, and then, discovering that installing the new forum …

January 2013 Update

It’s probably time for another update about this blog and where it’s heading. Many of you may have noticed that the promised upgrade of our forum never happened.  As I noted previously this is because the project turned out to be much more complicated than I thought and the work that has already been done on it suggests that the …

Forum Update

This is yet another update on our project to improve the discussion forum for the website.  After much more work than any of us anticipated, there is a working model for a new forum that will provide a great deal more functionality than our old Bublaa based forum. However, redoing the forum involves making changes to the rest of the …

No News

That is right, today’s post is about the lack of news… how silly is that? No news is an update on the promised changes to our forum, which has slowed down quite a bit since I announced that we were going to be transitioning to a different “platform” (a different WordPress application). Since then I have been busy trying to …

Thank you

We have gotten a couple of thought provoking requests for new content, but the combination of an extremely busy week and the desire to do a good job replying has meant that we haven’t finished the job of writing the posts. Nevertheless, we want to thank those subscribers who sent us requests. And to reiterate our intention to answer every …

Forum Update

Update– Our Forum has been gradually picking up steam, but the current setup, using Bublaa, has been difficult to administer. We are considering making a change to a system hosted by WordPress (the folks who host this site) called BuddyPress. If you have thoughts about this plan please let us know. If we do make the switch the Forum will …

Problems

We have begun to think of 2013. What does the future hold for this blog? Next year we plan to take the content from this site, revise it, add to it, organize it and make it the basis for a book. Then we will start working on a MoodSurfing app. Meanwhile, we really need your input in order to make …

Forum News

On the second week anniversary of our forum I want to take a moment and thank all of you who have contributed to it. We have doubled the number of members in the past week. I hope that I can encourage all of you to select an avatar (it really does make the thing seem more personal, even if the …

Moodsurfing Courses – Coming Soon!!!

We have been busy on the site, but not in ways that might be visible… The forum has taken quite a bit of work and is likely to take more work to really get it rolling, but so far we are pleased with the positive response to the idea. We have also started to develop course material for online classes …

Forum – Week One

We have had the Bublaa hosted forum up and running for a week. It looks great and we have had some interesting posts already. A couple of notes – You have to sign up for a Bublaa account to access the forum. And the forum is “private” meaning that once you have your account I have to approve your membership. …

Comments Box Is Up and Functional Again!

Comments box works again!   One of our astute blog followers just pointed out that our “comments” section was not working. The problem is now fixed. This is an opportunity to point out that we love comments and questions. In fact one of the two things that you can do if you like the site is to post a comment. …

Moodsurfing: Catching Our Breath

It has been four months since Moodsurfing has started. More than a hundred articles, thousands of visitors. Thanks for your support. We have obviously had things to say that were meaningful, maybe we said things that were annoying, hopefully not too many things were flat out dumb. It is a good start, but we still have some short term goals …
