check it out I may have drawn you!

  1. I draw people on the way to and from work every day on the Toronto Transit system. Check it out- you may be in one of the drawings! It could happen!

    Any suggestions are welcome. I am planning to post every month.

    Does anyone know how to add the "share this" buttons to each post? Is it only possible to have this on the first page?

    Thanks!

    The blog I need help with is robdales.wordpress.com.

  2. Maybe I should have put the blog url in instead of the about page. Here it is:

    Thinks it's -

    Dashboard - Settings - Sharing
    tick all your boxes and drag the ones you want to share to, into the sharing box;
    then make sure each post is ticked at the bottom before you post is. :)

    ... before you post *it* !

  5. A very interesting concept.

    Perhaps you could have a post in which you feature one particular sketch and give a description of what the person was doing exactly? Despite the fact that whatever they may have been doing would probably be boring and mundane, I think a short descriptive paragraph would make it all the more interesting.

    At least for me it would.

    Hope to see more from you!

  6. Cool. Thanks Dovesgold! I think i did this now so hopefully it will work!

    Thanks lieutenantsarcasm! I like your idea!

    I think you are totally right!

    I've been thinking of doing some interviews and getting to know who I'm drawing too. I am waiting for my friend to get to Toronto so he can interview them with a recording device when I draw.

    It's going to be a fun summer!

  7. Ah, ok. I got it now. Someone has to hit "leave a reply" before it brings up the sharing options I guess. Is there a way to leave those open all of the time?

    Today I was trying to think about how I could talk with the people I am drawing but it all happens so fast! It is like while I draw I'm switching to a non verbal part of the mind.

    Was considering giving them a card saying that I drew them and the image may appear on the web site. But I was thinking today that most of the things I am drawing I can't tell if I like until much later.

    Hmmm.

    Somehow I'll think of a way to integrate text into it!

    See here:

    I can’t see the buttons on the front page.
    Make sure to select “Front Page, Archive Pages, and Search Results” for “Show buttons on” setting. http://en.support.wordpress.com/sharing/#troubleshooting

  9. Unless you use the P2 theme, which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.

  10. ah, ok! I get it now. Thanks Timetheif!
