A Helping Hand

It’s easy to be someone’s friend when they’ve got it all together, when they’re walking in blessing and prosperity. Anybody can believe in people after they’re successful, after they graduate, after they’re promoted, after they get their big break. But, people need our support the most before they get their breakthrough. They need us to look past their faults and failures and see their potential.

Most times, people just need a little “push” of encouragement to keep them moving forward. We should always put ourselves in the other person’s shoes and see things from their perspective. You may have some good advice that could save them a lot of heartache and pain. Don’t keep it to yourself. Pick up the phone. Help them win. Maybe you excelled in a college course that they’re struggling in. Don’t sit back and think, “Too bad. They’ve got to learn it the hard way.” No, you can be the person to lift them higher. You can be their helping hand.

    True it is wonderful to be there for the joy, and you also want to be there for some one to lean on if they need you, but that’s if they let you. Seems some only want you around for the leaning, and gone once they’ve nourished to carry on.
    Sad, but true have face this with friends & love time & time again.

      Hi Bernard,I’m glad to hear the tutorial was hfulepl for you. However, I’m a little worried about the privacy issues regarding trackback and pingback though.Why? Trackbacks and pingbacks don’t send personally identifiably information unless you put it in your post.When I made the reference to sending a pingback/trackback to the same blog, it was mainly for WordPress 1.5 users and below. In the earlier versions of WordPress, it allowed both links to slip through, however, the newer versions of WordPress 1.5.0.x and up will take the pingback in favor of the trackback (only publishing a single link).If the blog you’re linking to isn’t WordPress, it’s relatively safe to assume you need to trackback and don’t need to worry about pingbacks at all.So, am I correct to say that a blog owner should turn off either Pingback or Trackback in the WordPress->Options->Discussion? to avoid having two linkback?No, because there is no way to disable either or. You either have trackbacks and pingbacks enabled or you don’t.If you’re running the latest version of WordPress, you needn’t worry about the two-link problem.I just want to know whether you enabled both pingback and trackback on your site Trackbacks/pingbacks are enabled on this post, however, they are enabled on a post by post basis on the site itself.p.s. is there a RSS comment feed that I can add?The beauty of WordPress (when pretty permalinks are enabled) is that you can slap /feed/ to just about any URL to create an RSS feed. Hope I’ve answered your questions, if you have any others, don’t hesitate to ask. ~ Teli
