I have had a number of people (from my generation) contact me about instructions to keep up with my posts.  The email notification on the blog does not work so you will just have to check it.....I usually post every few days.  Again, thanks for the great support and love you have given to the Maxwells.  Below is an easy way to keep up with us.

Instructions to website (if you want to keep following):

To make this website a bookmark


1.  Go to the website:

  1. When you are on the page, click the “Favorites” pull down bar at the top left of your screen. 

  2. You will see “Add to Favorites.” 

  3. Click on that and in the “Name” box you can type what you want this page to be called.  I just left it as “The Maxwell Minutes.” 

  4. Click “OK.”

  5. Whenever you want to open up the website, just open up a new browser page.  Go to “Favorites” and click on the website.  It should take you directly to the site.



1.  Go to the website:

  1. When you are on the page, click on the “Bookmarks” pull down bar. 

  2. Click on “Add a Bookmark,” and type the name of the blog. 

  3. Click on “Add” and it should appear in your bookmarks section. 


To comment on a post:


Just as in Caring Bridge, you have to make a profile.  Again, it takes a minute or two and you are set.  You only have to do it once and then you can comment whenever you want to.  Here are the steps. 


  1. Go to the website:

  2. At the bottom of each post, you will see some grey words, “Posted by Kathleen at _____,”  and then you will see “Comments.” 

  1. Click on the “Comments” link and it will take you to a screen that shows other’s comments for that post.

  2. If you scroll all the way to the bottom, you will see a box that says “Post a Comment.”  Type your comment in the box. 

  3. When you finish typing your comment, underneath that box is a pull down menu under the title of “Comment As.”  Click on the pull down menu and choose “Google Account.” 

  4. Then click the “Post Comment” button underneath that. 

  5. If you already have a Google Account (if you use gmail or you have made a profile before) you can log in.  When you post a comment to one of the posts, the post will have your name at the bottom of it.  If you don’t already have a profile, you need to click on “Create a profile” that is in the log-in box.   This will take you to an information page.  Fill out your information.  Follow directions on the information pages, and you should be all set with your profile!

  6. The next time you pull up the blog website, there is a link in the right hand corner that says “Sign In.” Each time you want to post a comment, you can sign in.
