I tried to search for one of my posts this morning, it took me 10 minutes to find it! First, I checked my bookmarked posts, (too long and too many) then I had to go through my entire Blog and all my posts to finally find it. I would have used the Active Rain Search feature, but I couldn't remember my own "title". Has this ever happened to you?
This made me put on my thinking cap, to try and figure out how I could prevent this, and find them easier in the future. 10 minutes is ridiculous. Not too often, but on occasion, I want to email various posts I have written to other members or even non-members of Active Rain. It's taking me too much time to locate them.
So this is what I came up with. A post that works just for me!! ( just kidding…you can use it too! ) :-))
This post will allow me to find my entire BLOG in a single post, and all on one page too. I'm not sure if this has been done by other members, or if there is a better way, but I'll take my chances, and hope this is ok.
Three lessons I learned here today are:
I can use Active Rain to benefit me as much as other readers, friends and members
Don't name your posts with "Titles" you can't remember (I think it's an age thing) LOL
Never be afraid to try something new…you can't succeed until you fail first
(for those of you who may not approve of this post)
This single post will also allow you to browse my entire Blog quicker and easier for older posts that may be of interest to you and other readers. Feel free to click on any of the links below in my personal Blogroll post!! 🙂

So now there are probably a couple of things running through your mind…
Like, How will I remember the "Title" of this post?
It's Easy! My wife makes the best one's in the whole world, and I always eat "The Whole Enchilada"!
or maybe…How did I get all my posts, the dates, number of comments, views, and clicks on a single post?
Just click on your statistics link on your profile page, and you can "copy and paste" yours into a new post!
"Don't forget the Title of your post!" 🙂
