Question about “falling snow plugin”

I’ve seen some other WP bloggers have the falling snow effect and I wanted to add it to mine. I did find the app for it and downloaded it, but from there I have no idea how to get it to appear on my site.

The directions are not very detailed, and I have no idea where the “Plugins” page is on my Admin page. Can someone help me out here? I feel like an idiot.

These are the “directions” I’m supposed to follow.

Drop the ‘wp-snow-effect’ folder into your ‘wp-content/plugins’ folder (where is this??)

Go to your Administration: Plugins page and activate the “WP snow effect” plugin (where is the Plugins page?)

Go to Settings / WP Snow Effect to configure the plugin

    • Toolbar (in Admin) >> Settings >> General

      You should see “Snow” [checkbox] “Show falling snow on my blog until January 4th.”

      It sits between “Week Starts On” and “Language”.

      • Jason is right, I stumbled across the snow option on the “General” page when I went to change my blog title recently. But I decided not to have the snow because it kind of makes me dizzy.

          • By the way, Lucky, I wrote a post today about the “real” reason why I don’t allow comments on my blog. You may find it interesting. If you don’t have anything better to do, that is. 🙂

            • Yay, and I finally got to “like” this comment. Our wifi router got infected and we couldn’t get online for a couple of days. Had to get a new router. I didn’t even know that could happen. Googled it on my android phone and discovered it’s a not uncommon problem for routers to be hacked. Grrr.

            • Linda, you hit on one of my pet peeves. Some of us have scars that are not visible to others, but our pain and/or disability is no less real than the person whose scars are visible to everyone. I hate it when people assume that because they can’t SEE the scar or injury, the problem must be a figment of the sufferer’s imagination.

            • You nailed it, Bluebird. Thanks for the affirmation.

              As I was reading your comment just now, I thought — and not for the first time — “I really like this person. I like how she thinks.” It’s funny, I don’t know what you look like, I have no idea how old you are, I don’t know where you live, I know nothing of your life history, and I don’t even know for sure if you are female or male. But I have gotten to know your soul through the things you share on your blog and the words you write in comments. You are a really smart, funny, insightful, deep-thinking, empathetic,kind, caring, multi-facted, all-around cool person.

              And that’s in addition to being the neatest “bird” on the internet. 🙂

            • Awww, you’re so sweet. ♡♡♡

              (p.s. I’m female, 61 years old, average height, with a pallid complexion and brown hair with grey streaks. I live in Wisconsin with my husband and a houseful of grandcats — because we raised four kids who excelled at rescuing strays, but weren’t so good at taking their kitties with them when they grew up and moved out of the house.)
