It is very common for me to be asked a lot of questions by thyroid patients. A large number of these questions already have very good answers that are contained in posts within my website.
This short blog post explains how easy it is for thyroid patients to find information and the various ways in which this can be done. If everyone was aware of the easiness and speed with which they could find good information and answers to their questions, I am sure more thyroid patients would be using the website and finding value from it.
Using Paul Robinson’s Blog
There are several ways to find the blog:
- On the Home Page of the website, you can scroll to the bottom under ‘Paul’s Blog’ where the most recent blog article is located and click on ‘All Articles’ to take you to the Blog.
- Alternatively, you can click on the three bars at the top right of the Homepage (the ‘Hamburger Menu’) to access the menu of website pages and select Blog.
Once in the Blog itself you can:
- Just scroll down the posts, and click on the Next page for more. This is obviously slow progress but can be useful to see what information is there, especially for someone exploring the site for the first time.
- Better still might be to use ‘Search by Keyword’. This will look at titles of blog posts and the content within the posts for anything that matches the keyword or phrase that you type. I use this all the time myself when someone asks me for information. Just type a word or a phrase that you think best fits the information you want or question you are looking to have answers to. The search function is powerful and is highly effective. The page that you are taken to will have one or more blog posts in it that you can scroll through that best fits the keyword or phrase that you’ve typed.
- You can also select a ‘Blog Category’. Often the information you are searching for will fit nicely into one of these categories. Again, you will be taken to the blog posts that are in only that category.
- You can also select a ‘Blog Tag’ – there are a lot of these and some are more specific than the ‘Blog Category’. You will be taken immediately to a list of all the blog posts that have this tag.
- For those that want to see a list of all the blog posts and just look through this list, you can go down to the bottom of the main Blog page and click on ‘Show List View’. You will be shown a list of all the blog titles. Each is a hyperlink that you can click on.
- ‘Show List View’ is also available for the list of blogs that come up when keyword searches, category or tags are selected.
Personally, I tend to use ‘Search by Keyword’ most often, but I have a rough idea of what I might have called the article or what content I might have written within the post.
So, for the Blog there are multiple ways to find information. It has very powerful and effective search tools and ought to help you find the information you are looking for extremely quickly.
Using Success Stories:
The Success Stories are also searchable but the options are a lot simpler.
There are several ways to find the Success Stories:
- On the Home Page of the website, you can scroll to the very bottom where you will find a rolling list of the start of all the Success Stories. The button ‘More Stories’ will take you to the complete list of Success Stories.
- Alternatively, you can click on the three bars at the top right of the Homepage to access the menu of website pages and select Success Stories.
Once in the Success Stories you can:
- Just scroll down all the Sucess Stories and click on the one that interests you.
- Better still might be to use ‘Select a Treatment’ and select the medication option that you are most interested in. The options are: All Treatments, Circadian T3 Method, Natural Desiccated Thyroid, No Thyroid Meds, T3, T4/T3. Clicking on one of these will take you to a list of the Success Stories that are relevant to that medication choice.
Note from any place on the website you can select my icon of yellow, blue and red books which is at the top left and bottom left (in monochrome there) and this will take you straight back to the Homepage (the icon looks a bit like a flower but it represents my three books).
The searching capability on the website is very good. It can save you considerable time when you are looking for information. Just give it a go if you haven’t already.
