I am honored and proud to say that I received a Word Press award yesterday from a very dear blogger.

This is the name of his blog: “Looking for a reason to a complicated world” …

He wrote:
“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the Word Press family has taken me in and showed me love and a caring side only Word Press can.

The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before.

This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honor to start this award. Thank you,

Shaun @ http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/

I have not given out an Award for a few months now, so I would like to give this to 10 people who only recently followed me or 10 I have got friendly with lately. If you have this Awards already I will see and not pass it on, if you have and I can’t see it, please, add “Awarded x2” below or pass it on to a friend

This award means a lot to me, I made it at a time I needed this place here, people here saved my from myself, amazing people, people who were just there, strangers who wanted to help, and I am I not above seeking help or accepting some should it come my way.
Thank you again, Word Press

More love, less hate … Shaun

I will now nominate 10 people;

Shaun’s Rules:
1. Ping back to the person who gave you the Award (Me)
2. Display the Award
3. Display the text in Red as I want people to know why I made it (**I wonder if I can do this!)
4. Nominate 10 people you look to as almost Family here on Word Press”


I am honored to have been nominated for this award. It means a lot to me because, like Shaun, I have made new cyber-friends and have been educated in so many ways, on so many topics.

I think there are “masters” of this craft out there and to be considered good enough to be nominated for this award humbles me. I’m a newbie!! .. and I learn new things everyday … and for that, I’m thankful.


**At this time, I will nominate 10 people who have educated me, impressed me. inspired me throughout my short time in this “venue”:

I have learned about history, political topics, personal issues and tribulations, medical conditions and coping mechanisms, rambling musings, history, sexuality, photography, art, poetry, prison movements, science and so much more.

I have seen blogs that are absolutely beautiful in their format. I have learned how to add videos to a post to make it more understandable and to help the words come alive.

The beauty of this is that one post inspires to write another. One topic leads the way for a new idea to research and post about.

I’m in the process of learning to change the appearance of my blog, display the notices I receive from Word Press and display the awards that you have bestowed upon me.
That is still a work in process. I feel there is still so much more that I need to learn.

Someone has told me that this isn’t that hard. So … I will try. I’m keeping my fingers crossed to find the “dashboard” and be able to achieve this. I do hope that the dashboard is “user friendly”.

I don’t want to copy anyone but I do want to be able to reach the quality that you have shown me is possible.

So …. here goes!! From my heart …. To part of my Word Press Family!!

Celine Dion & Josh Groban Live “The Prayer” (HD 720p)

This is an interesting story and such a beautiful song. I dedicate it to you, my Word Press Family …..

We dream a world without violence
a world of justice and faith.
Everyone gives the hand to his neighbors
Symbol of peace, of fraternity

We hope each soul will find
another soul to love

The force his gives us
We ask that life be kind
is wish that
and watch us from above
everyone finds love
We hope each soul will find
around and inside
another soul to love
Let this be our prayer
Let this be our prayer, just like every child

Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe
Need to find a place, guide us with your grace
Give us faith so we’ll be safe

We ALL are ONE!!! We ALL are connected by this wonderful WEB!!!

Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!


  1. Thank you so much for this kind honour, I feel privileged only knowing you a short time… I have had many awards offered me in the past, and recently I have passed up quite a few, simply because I have been too lazy to follow the rules etc…

    This one may take me some time to put together but I do intend to pass it on, for our WP family is growing, as we unite with like minded souls who share their hearts, ideas and bring their love through poems, arts and crafts into our lives..

    Thank you so much for linking me within your family ….

    WE are ONE within the Family called the Human Race…. No creed, no colour, just human beings who have forgotten how to connect via their deepest emotions, as they have thought themselves separate and alone . We are connected via the web of Love would that we reach out and open our hearts….
    Thank you my sister! 🙂 and to Shaun who instigated this award ..

    ~Sue 🙂 xox


  2. DOC..WOW..
    Thank you…And what a speech!!

    Some people in this World use it as a competition..
    Some people in this World JUST CARE AND LOVE..

    You care and love..
    And that is what I like about you most.
    You are “REAL” You are not trying to prove a point or look better, or be better.
    This is why you are and will be so popular here.
    People LOVE real, and that is you…

    TOTAL respect Doc


    • TY …. my friend. Still learning!! And you teach me. Trying to get the youtube link …. and the “likes” and followers.

      Still need to work on more than one pic. One step at a time.

      You helped me a lot. How do I get youtube on the blog?? 🙂


      • In widgets there SHOULD be a youtube widget..
        In there drag it to the side bar..it will open up
        You put the Artist-song at the top
        Below you have to tag it, like you would in a blog
        This is the tag with spaces…..
        [ you tube = URL OF VIDEO ]
        If you put that all together with whatever url from you tube, the video will appear..remember to save!!
        Each time you change the song, just carefully copy and past the song into where the old URL was…

        Let me know if it works..


      • I’m stumped. Don’t see youtube widget. Saw instagram and did it right away.

        Able to do more than 1 pic!! Yay ….

        Stumped w/ awards too!! Where’s the notification and archives again???


      • To right..
        The notification speak bubble/square thing that turns orange so you know you have a message, or whatever.. Left click it, then click “View Archive” at the top right if the drop down menu..in there, look for “Awards” at the bottom… This is the place that tells you who said what and who likes what..



      • Yeah same thing….
        Open and do what I said with the You Tube tags..

        [ you tube = VIDEO URL ]
        you tube MUST be lower case…then save..
        Above type artist-song before saving


      • Got my community going. Yay for me …

        Been trying as you say …. Now I know about the “bubble” thingy …. let me keep trying.
        Every time I’m getting ready to go … you gimme more instructions. Cool ….


      • Arrrgghhh!!! Still stuck at the youtube/music player …. and also the awards.


        Trying the music first. But I seem to be doing something wrong.


      • You have awards showing though…

        You pulled the music player over to the right yeah?
        I will show you a screenshot from my widgets so you know what you need to do…here..
        This is screenshot of my Widget panel…

        I am having trouble hosting…Check your email..


      • The one you use for registering and getting notifications on here..Check junk in-case…


      • I don’t know what the “blurb” I’m doing … it all seems to be there …. the full stream of numbers/etc … but no little box w/ video!!!


      • That needs to go after the =
        Including the entire tag

        [ youtube = ] << Tag the < is just to point.. lol

        Copy the URL you will see what I mean, it's the song's url in youtube


      • Woooo Hooooooo 😀

        I am a PC Tech, so patience is a virtue.. lol
        I knew you would get it..
        Each day, or whenever you change the song just change the url, copy and paste right over..and save..

        😀 Teamwork Doc 😀


      • I don’t thing I’m changing that song in a while!! LOL!!
        I have everything written down in a word doc!!

        The only thing missing now is the notifications. It seems to me that now I have to wait until the next one to add. B/C I have the pic saved but can’t bring up into the blog.

        My friend ….. you have worked hard with me today. So many thanks!!! 🙂

        Taking a brake!! Need a hefty drink!! LOL … TY!!!


      • Also, looking at all you have on your sidebar, in Widgets…you can move things up and down, left click and put to the top or bottom etc… Just so you know..


      • Did you Tag it?
        [ you tube = ] << Put the URL you can see into that, with NO SPACES…
        I can only show you with spaces or it won't show.. You need to put the tags around it Doc x
        After the = you get


        Add it all together..

        [ you tube = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1j1qwQQ8-Q ] WITH NO SPACES

        You get this..

        Both were the same, the video is EXACTLY the same as the tag above, just no spaces..

        Yeah? lol


      • [ you tube = ]

        that is tag… lol
        But after the = you put what video you want to share…NO SPACES… I can only show you it with spaces or it won’t show..That is the complete tag..
        How did you put the video up in your WP Family blog…

        Anyway, put the tag into the media player instead of just the URL/Address/video link


      • and
        [ you tube = ]

        Gives you this..

        [ you tube = http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1j1qwQQ8-Q ]

        Push all that together, not just numbers, the ENTIRE URL..You get this.. no spaces at all, all compacted together..

        Tag should look like this when done.. I done a screen grap, this is what you need in the bottom line in media player, with ANY link from You Tube..

        This is what you are looking to do


      • Keep this for future times.. lol
        Was JUST about to send..

        Save it in-case you need it again later…


      • I will save it!! TY so much! The only thing left is to get the likes & followers.

        Really appreciate all your help. Enjoying my ….🍷


      • I saw that!!! That’s the blog stats. Do I have to wait now for the next notification to be able to include it in the blog like the awards???

        Wondering ….. Because I have +50, +100 … 1000 & 1337 likes. Can I incorporate those like the awards?


      • Forget the 1337 one.Here is why..
        It is a code error…
        If you can take a screen shot of your 1000 followers…send it to me,, I can make it a badge…
        Best way is focus on it or go to it…
        Control/alt/print screen…
        Paste in .Word
        Copy from there
        Paste into Paint..
        Save as a Jpeg..
        Send it to me..

        I make the 1,000 badge..
        or I could just send you my 1,000 badge..
        If not..do as I said…Zoom into your browser in Tools i think, make everything bigger..
        Cont/Alt/Print Screen
        Open Word and just paste..
        From there, copy
        then paste into paint..save as Jpeg..
        send what it is you want… I send you a badge back to host…



      • More than cool!!! This is great. But … it’s beyond me. LOL ….

        Will copy into your word document and try later!!
        Time for bed here!!


      • I was looking for a post that a fellow blogger wrote about 1337 …. it was very nice … mainly stating that is stood for “elite” …. which goes by the link you sent. Can’t find it …..


      • It is really just an internet glitch, nothing more..
        There is nothing sinister about 1337, I got a 1337 follow badge and it just confused me “What an odd number” lol..
        ….So being real nosey I went to see what it was and seen it was just a programme issue in Word Press…Why not 1,500? lol…


      • Still stuck …. think I need a brake. My mind isn’t thinking right.

        Thank you so much for all your help!! You’ve been awesome. Maybe after a bit … I can try again & it will be better. Managed to get some things done … thanks to you!!

        Mainly got to know the dashboard, got my awards in, added the community and can do more than 1 pic. All thx to you!!! my friend across the oceans!!! 🙂


      • Yeah had a look there…You did well..Like everything, once you do it once, you are an expert 😀


      • You managed it in your Award Blog…
        Just repeat that into the music player..

        and Bob’s your Uncle… 😀


      • NO…
        The ENTIRE TEXT from your address bar….

        I just showed you with the James Blunt video..
        Just like that.. 😀


  3. Wait. Wait…
    How did you add the video above in the blog?
    Do the same into the Music Player..
    Exactly the same..
    Just checked, video player seems to be ok…


  4. Congratulations Horty! You are definitely a wonderful part of the WordPress Family and I thank you sincerely for including me here! I am most appreciative of the honor. And the video is outstanding dearest friend! Have just the bestest weekend you can, much love to a kindred spirit (you), Penny 🙂 xo

  6. Congrats Horty!!

    I’m definitely referring back to this exchange because I’m fairly new in changing the appearance of my blog. One thing I did learn about embedding Youtube videos is that if you add “&rel=0” after the embedding code, it eliminates the thumbnail videos from being shown at the end of the video.

    Also, I’m looking forward to having more time to get to know the Word Press family. Hugs and best wishes to everyone!
