My domain is renewed for another year of blogging and fun. Sure, WordPress has had some interesting developments but I am good to roll with the punches. Connection, communication and conversation are important things when blogging and I am glad I have a platform to do all that here.
Thanks to you all for continuing to support me, like my posts and connect here. Keep on blogging good people. Love and peace.
In a very real sense, we are all aliens on a strange planet. We spend most of our lives reaching out and trying to communicate. If during our whole lifetime, we could reach out and really communicate with just two people, we are indeed very fortunate..
It is through breathing we all have life. A breath is a connection to the world and to our spirit. The next breath you take is a gift and the next one and so forth. Everything that has breath should cry out when there is injustice in the world. Our breath means we are continuing to fight the good fight. The voice we have comes from that breath that goes deep into our bodies and soul. Everyone should have the right to breath freely and without persecution. Thank you creator God for each breath I take. My friends, breathe today and love your neighbors and yourself.
Connections that are virtual are as real as they can get right now. I am grateful for them. Sometimes we take our connections for granted. Now is the time to value them as being something that will keep us going. Let no one feel alone at this time. We need each other now more than ever.
Making ones living upon the good graces and cooperation of others is tough. You having to balance the demands of business with the availably of people in the process. One has to be delicate and understanding. Empathy and sympathy are both needed to connect with people.
Using good communication skills and experience are very helpful. Of course it requires sticking to it in order to be successful. Ultimately it’s asking people to help people and to add urgency into the mix.
Having goals and meeting quotas in this situation are another conversation. Keep those metrics in mind though.
Don’t worry, I am not going anywhere but some folks choose to walk away from blogging or other things they love for various reasons. Sometimes it’s the need to do something new or to have a fresh start. Trust me I understand that. But I encourage people to think hard about doing that.
Making connections with people from all over the world is one of the reasons I stay on WordPress.com and the fact they do the behind the scenes stuff.
Blogging is an exchange of ideas and the telling of one’s story in real time and I really like that part of the whole thing. Deleting your blog takes courage and it’s sad when someone does it. So as I always say keep on blogging about everything and anything that you see in life and that inspires you. Also keep it fun and enjoy the process.
Announcing my new and improved blog look for 2018. I have taken the four-year-old Twenty Fourteen and have tweaked the CSS to make it look very blue which is very me. I am a big fan of white font on dark backgrounds because I think its much easier to read and it gives it a certain style.
Twenty fourteen allows me to pull in my blogging community in a very effective way too because I am looking at making my blog the central social network for me in the coming year. Not only is my blog where I express myself its also a connection hub too for you the followers.
Be prepared to feel ancient — the first text message is 25 years old. Engineer Neil Papworth sent the first SMS on December 3rd, 1992, when he wrote “merry Christmas” on a computer and sent it to the cellphone of Vodafone director Richard Jarvis. It was a modest start, but it ultimately changed technology and even social norms. For more check out, The first text message was sent 25 years ago – Engadget.com
Texting has radically changed the way we communicate. Used to be you passed a paper note back and forth. Sometimes I prefer it to voice communications. It’s so amazing how far we have come though in the past 25 years where we send photos and other media too.
