How to Add an Image to an Event Post or Blog Post

Adding an image to your event posts helps them stand out more on the calendar. Just be aware that many BlueBroward members will see your event as part of a weekly calendar roundup, and some email programs will not display the images. That means your image should provide additional value, but basic details like location and contact info should be included in the body of the post.

This video shows how you add an image to an event posting to the calendar or a post to the blog.

If you hoover your mouse over a new paragraph, you should see a + sign appear in the left hand margin that allows you to switch between adding text and adding an image. The same technique will allow you to add a YouTube video or another sort of content.

To insert an image between two paragraphs, hoover your mouse in the space between them and you will see the + sign appear between the two paragraphs. Or hover it over the first paragraph to get a + button that will allow you to add an image at the top of the post.

In the sidebar on the right, you will see options for whether to show the image full size or a smaller size, and whether to change how it is aligned relative to the text of your post (centered, aligned right, or whatever).

Debate Watch Parties

So far, look like there’s one big Democratic debates watch party scheduled for Wednesday night at ArtServe. But none for Thursday? That might actually be the more interesting night (Biden / Kamala Harris / Buttigieg / Sanders).

I know there some other smaller gatherings planned, so write back if you would like me to share the information on yours.

I heard there’s something in Coral Springs at the Ale House. Both nights? Can’t find anything posted online.

June 18 Special Election in Coral Springs, Endorsing Khurrum Wahid

There is a special election in Coral Springs on June 18 (no early voting) to fill a City Commission seat. Former Commissioner Dan Daley recently moved up to State Representative (filling the seat vacated when Jared Moskowitz took a position with the DeSantis administration).

The Sun-Sentinel has endorsed Khurrum Wahid, a local attorney with an ambitious agenda for the city. I agree. This is a personal endorsement, not necessarily the choice of the BlueBroward community. But I’ve spoken with Mr. Wahid, a local defense attorney, on several occasions and believe he would be a strong addition to the city’s leadership team. You can learn more about him at www.electwahid.com.

This is a non-partisan race, but I can tell you that Khurrum Wahid is an active Democrat. I believe there is at least one other Democrat in the race. There are also a couple of Republicans, who might otherwise be fine people, but in 2019 continuing to identify with the Republican party is a disqualifying characteristic in my book.
