Helpful New Blog Features for You

I'm feeling guilty asking this, but would you help me out here today?
I've added four new features, and I'd love to hear what you think of them!
If they're useless, I'll get rid of them---who needs junk?!

But, some of these gizmos are kind of cool, and will help you find what you're looking for.
Drumroll . . . . .please!

First, is Follow by Email. (You'll see all features on the right sidebar.)
This brings new WCP posts straight to your Email instead of you having to visit! It's like an RSS feed, just not as scary and shark sounding. And I'll never share your Email with anybody else, and I won't send you anything but the blog posts. No worries.
Second, is Labels. Boring name, but these are awesome!
This is what they do: Let's say you just can't remember the really great music video you heard here on a Saturday way back when? Well now all you do is go over to the cloud of Labels, click on Music Videos (or any other topic you see there), and all the relevant posts come up in one beautiful place. Give it a try. Easy peasy.

Third, is Search This Blog. Want to find a comforting Bible verse, a certain Bible character, a topic like depression, tears, grief camp, Christmas, or loneliness? Try typing your topic in the search box. I hope this covers everything else you want here.

Finally, did you notice the pretty picture box about Simple Sympathy? It's a link to a great website with free sympathy cards, and good words to help us not be an example of 'What Not to Say.'

So please:
  • tell me if you like these additions.
  • And if you haven't already, click the topics at the top of this page for valuable links and help along the way.
  • Also, why not visit the blogs of other Christian widows listed in the blog roll? You might find a really good friend! If you're a Christian widow blogger and you'd like your blog listed, please let me know---I sure don't want to overlook anyone!
Thanks so much for your help!


  1. Ferree,

    I love these new features!!! Thank you so much for taking the time to create so many tools for us grieving widows.

    FYI...the blog link you've listed for mine (Petal4Him) seems to be broken. Here it is again if you'd like to list it. I'd love to have people stop by:

    Thanks so much! You are a blessing!


  2. I like all three. It doesn't take a lot of time to come to this site (which I really find useful), but having the posts in email is a plus.

  3. Ferree,
    Thank you for the new additions to your website. I love them all and think they are a great asset for your ministry that is already so wonderful! I especially like the Simple Sympathy addition. What a great resource for future reference! And yes, I feel that I have acquired some special, new friends, yourself included, thanks to your Christian Widow Blog Roll! Thank you again for all that you provide for this community of widows and widowers. You bless us with each entry!
    Hugs, Renee'

  4. Thanks for the feedback, Leah, Cathi and Renee--I really appreciate your help and your friendship! And I'm glad to hear you find the features helpful. Leah, I think I've got that link fixed now. :) hugs to all, fbh


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I am not always able to reply but your remarks mean a lot to me and will appear as soon as possible.

Here are some tips for commenting:
Remember to click the Publish button when you are done.
Choosing the anonymous identity is easiest if you do not have your own blog.
Using a computer rather than a cell phone seems to work better. Thanks again!
