I have my eye on a few blogs, but again…time constraints is playing wildly with me! Besides, it doesn’t do the blog owner any justice if I write only a few lines about it! Stay tuned!
Today’s assignment: to comment on at least 4 blogs I’ve never commented on before. I still shuffle on my cyber feet with my head down before I could pluck up the courage to comment on a few blogs simply because I feel a little “spammy” if I only say a few worthless words such as “nice post!” Well, I’ve made a few comments now, I want the next 24 hours to roll by sooner!
I’ve added the Zero to Hero Blogging University image as my way of expressing that I’m pledging to becoming a better blogger. I feel so accomplished! As always, looking forward to dressing it up even further while I’m concentrating on the main blog in the meantime before release.
Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work? My hours of alertness actually start at around 17:00, precisely the time when one has just finished their afternoon tea. There is a sense of seduction that the night has to offer: the moments of peace when all has gone to bed, the solitude, the hidden creatures that beckon my mind. 1 o’clock: Only my wine and Laura Fygi for company. The start of a new creative adventure over candlelight. 2 o’clock: New possibilities happen. …
I’ve made a text widget for my “elevator pitch”. (You’re looking at it to the right side!) It’s not perfect, and I should at least try to be amusing, but I know for sure that this will be good enough until my About page is finally up and running. Scribbled image to come soon!
Once again, timing issues for the Creations official launch. Irresistibility to happen soon!
Again, at the moment, I’ve got a proper header graphic planned, but priorities for my Creations blog is essential until launch day. I shall return to this entry soon!
While I do not have photos that I’m actually allowed to publish for the “scribble” element at the moment (have patience!), the image below is what I strive to look like when I’m scribbling (caffeine edition). This is also what I strive to look like if I were writing with wine (intoxicated edition, sometimes with Andrea Bocelli for company). And while I’m at it, the tone will most likely sometimes feel as if it were something out of reading The Oatmeal. Finally, I’ll leave you with a sample soundtrack of what I’m likely to listen to when doing my scribbles.
I cannot stop raving about the Tempera layout by Cry Out Creations. Responsive, easy to customize and beautiful, I was ecstatic when one of my good friends suggested I use this theme. Indeed, I have tried a few others before, but they don’t seem to fit my needs. Download link to the Tempera theme here.
This is perhaps my main downfall to building a community: not taking the time out to interact with fellow bloggers! As “easy” as it is to make a comment on somebody’s post, having an actual conversation to gain a form of relationship is much harder due to the time to interact with each person. Additionally, one of the things I find difficult is the fact that many of the bloggers in my niche category feel more empty than meaningful. It’s a cold feeling, but I’d much rather follow a few blogs that I can see myself immersing for a deeper …
