Moodscope's blog



Moodscope is getting better… Tuesday August 4, 2015

The Moodscope blogspot is going from strength to strength with more and more members commenting and supporting each other. There's a great community spirit and some excellent advice and shared experiences – if you haven't visited it yet, why not give it a go, I think you'll find it helpful and interesting.

But, although the blog is published here every day, if you'd like to add a comment you have to go to the Moodscope blogspot which is hosted elsewhere, which is obviously not ideal.

So, we've been working really hard and on Saturday 8th August we're launching our new blog on where you'll now be able to add your comments.

Members and non-members will be able to view the new blog, but you'll only be able to comment by logging in to your Moodscope account. You can add a comment using your own name, a pseudonym or anonymously.

You'll still be able to view all the previous blogs, and over the next few months we'll be tagging the posts so that you'll be able to quickly find blogs on a subject you are interested in.

From Saturday, the daily emails will contain a link to the new blog.

We hope you find the new facility more user-friendly and for those of you who haven't visited the blog, why not come and join in the daily conversations.

Kind regards.

Caroline Ashcroft
The Moodscope Team

Brilliant news - the blog comments are such a great space to thank the blogger and to express your own stuff and learn and laugh with others. Look forward to Saturday. - x

Agree. I so often feel so grateful for the time and effort the bloggers give...but sometimes can't think what to say or how to express it. But it's appreciated daily...
A warm hug

Hi Caroline and the Moodscope Team- Moodscope goes from strength to strength and I reckon it is now the premier site for mood management. Brilliant achievement and congratulations to the Moodscope team

Sarah Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 7:18am

I too feel grateful for the e mails and blogs. I read them every morning. It is a very supportive community. Thank you Caroline, the team and all the members.

Thank you all at Moodscope Towers! It's like moving house...we're going to have a shiny new room. Merci! Love ratg x.

This sounds great. One we have to log into our account each time we wish to make a comment? Maybe by doing this, we won't have to prove we are not robots? Thank you for all your hard work and personal connection Caroline.

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 8:23am

Hi Sarah, I'm so pleased you are enjoying the blog. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 8:26am

I think there are quite a few people who really appreciate the blogs but don't comment. That's great though, as long at the blogs are appreciated we'll carry on publishing them. The bloggers are just amazing - and they do put in a lot of effort and time to try and help others and we're really grateful! Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 8:38am

Hi HO, That's very kind of you to say so :-) Carolinex

Lois Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 8:50am

Great news :D

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 9:21am

Thanks Sarah, it's great to know they are appreciated. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 9:23am

Hi Ratg, let's hope it's not as stressful and that everything arrives on time on Saturday without any breakages!! Moving the blog over to Moodscope means we can re-decorate at any time and extend when necessary :-) Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 9:25am

Hi Julia, you can log in to your account and stay logged in which may be easier. We will have to have some kind of security to stop spammers, but this will be as you log in to your account, not every time you want to add a comment which will make life easier! Also, another enormous benefit is that comments won't just disappear after you've taken lots of time and energy composing them!!

Thank you Julia for all your support. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 9:27am

Thanks Lois. Carolinex

Ditto everything everyone has already do an amazing job keeping Moodscope going, with all that it must entail...something we bearsofliddlebrain couldn't manage to achieve and it brings hope to all us Hopeful Ones in our Rooms Above The Garages and elsewhere! Thank you Caroline, to you and everyone who makes it possible to blog and respond. Good luck with the great switchover!

Sometimes I think the old adage 'If it ain't broke don't fix it' can be quite useful.As someone who doesn't find it easy to use modern technology I find the constant changing around of sites very hard to deal with.
I do enjoy reading the blogs so I hope I will be able to continue to be inspired by them.

Silvia A Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 5:46pm

Caroline, this is a very good news.

By the way, I would like to suggest rss for comments, too. I usually read past blogs. Soemtimes I use the seach box and read past blogs. Often I spend an entire week without acessing the blog and read past ones. And I comment. but this comments are not read by people. Nor people are directed as "you may like this" to past blogs that deals with same issue.

If there is rss for comments I think I can search for people who only write comments, not blogs, like me.

Thanks !

Silvia A Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 5:49pm

Anonymous, if you find it difficult you can write to Caroline. The Moodscope support is excellent!

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 6:00pm

Hi Susan, thank you. It's nice to know it's appreciated because that's why we continue to do it. Jon has actually moved on from Moodscope now, but he does deserve a big thank you as he invented Moodscope. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 6:02pm

Once we've moved, we'd be pleased to hear if there are any home improvements you think we could make :-)

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 6:03pm

Thank you so much Karen. We do our bit, but it wouldn't be the same without the input from all the members, so thank you too. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 6:09pm

Hi Anonymous, this move should make your life a lot easier because everything will be in the same place - the test, the graph, the blog and the comments, but as Silvia says, if you have any problems after Saturday, just let me know and I'll see if I can help you. Carolinex

Caroline Ashcroft Tue, Aug 4th 2015 @ 6:30pm

Hi Silvia, thank you. There we go, you have suggested the first home improvement (see above) - what a good idea! I've already got the programmers looking in to it.

Christine Wed, Aug 5th 2015 @ 7:39am

yes I agree, it all sounds really good, I feel like I want to add my thanks for this new way to just put my feelings and thoughts out there, keep up the good work Moodscope.
