A few details for new readers … and old!

Today I wanted to address a couple of questions that have come my way in recent weeks. Now some of you are going to say, "Well, duh? Who didn't know that?" and the answer is, "I didn't … not always, at least!" Occasionally someone asks about a post they saw on this blog in the past but can't remember when it ran. The great thing is, that small box above my name — the rectangular box to the right of the orange Blogger icon and with the little magnifying glass icon inside, is the search bar. I outlined it in red above to show you where to look, because it's a very helpful tool and one I use all the time. On my blog as well as others, I find myself wanting to revisit a blog post from the past, and this search bar makes that easy to do. Not long ago, for instance, I wanted to revisit some of my friend Phyllis' many posts about "Downton Abbey" on her Relevant Tea Leaf blog, so I simply went to her search bar and typed in that name, clicked Enter (or Return) on my computer, and up came all those great posts!

A couple of people have told me they are sharing my Saturday Teatime Tales with their friends (thank you, thank you, thank you!), and those are all labeled "Teatime Tales" and can be accessed by scrolling down the lists on the right-hand column on this blog. Under the heading "Labels," you will find a number of my Saturday projects from the past, such as the 52 weeks of tea room postcards and 52 weeks of tea room recipes. If you click on one of these titles, it will bring up ALL of the posts under that particular topic.

So there you go! These are some search techniques I didn't know when I was a new blogger, and for new readers, I thought it might be helpful as well. Happy searching!


  1. Excellent info; I, too, did not know that. Thanks!

  2. Angela,
    Thanks for this info, very useful. I also did not know this. I once email the owner of a blog and asked for her help in finding a post I wanted to read again. Now I know how to do it myself!

  3. I had no idea. Thanks. I also share your Tea Time Tales with friends. Nancy Carr

  4. Well I'll be golly danged. I had no idea either. Thanks so much!

  5. Again enlightening us Angela! Thank to find!

  6. Great tip!
    I wanted to let you know I found Daphene's Diary @ Michaels today. I live about 40 miles from B&N so I don't just stop in! I'm not sure it will be offered again, but I do hope so. You enlightened me about this publication so wanted to share with you and your Tea with Friends community.

    1. Oh wow, I didn't know that Michaels was carrying this now! Thanks for the tip, Paula!

  7. oh, duh! Thanks for this information! I had no clue about the little search box at the top of the blog page - and I've often wondered why you didn't have a search box on your side bar! And just took a peek at our blog, and sure enough, there's the search box at the top of the page! Happy to know about this little hidden secret!

  8. Now I learned something new. Thanks so much!


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
