The blog is now using the Sela Theme which is very versatile and easy to read. When you visit you see it looks more like a homepage with a very cool look to it. At the bottom of the front page are my most recent articles, my best articles by visitation and a slideshow of what you can expect visually here. The menu can take you to any of the sites pages and other features. I customized the sites cascading style sheet to create a striking dark blue look with white font to make it stand out.

This is what you will see when you visit the site on your phone’s browser. The theme is adaptive and looks good not only on desktop but mobile too. On the phone it has the feel of an app which is nice. You can still find everything easily on your mobile phone.

Seasonally its good to change things up to keep things fresh and interesting. The key is to keep it readable and easy to use. Thank you for continuing to connect with me through my blog. Your friendship and support is appreciated as always.

Something About Sacrifice

Some of us sacrifice in different ways for a higher purpose. Many have given careers, money, relationships and their lives so others can have a better life. To me sacrifice is personal and to say one person’s sacrifice is not the same as another diminishes the whole notion of giving up something for someone or something else.

Daily Prompt – Word Of The Day: Renegade

Something a little different here….

He was a good kid. Raised by a good family. Went to the neighborhood church. He went to school every day. He did what was expected for the most part. However he saw things in the world differently. He began to think for himself. He became a social justice warrior and a social justice worrier too. He became a black sheep, a weirdo, a renegade of sorts. The thing about it is that his life led him to be who he is today; a believer, a blogger, a person with his heart on his sleeve.

Here is another look at what a renegade is… Renegade by the classic rock group Styx.

Daily Prompt – Word Of The Day: Zealous

Zealous, this is a word I am all too familiar with. In my life I have been known to be overly zealous about this, that or the other thing. My enthusiasm and zeal to advance a cause, be a part of something or doing my work have been what I am known for. The problem is that being too zealous can get you into trouble because you might miss something important or perhaps impact ones relationships when you really want to be involved with people or things. Call it the geek/nerd in me that wears his heart and soul on his sleeve. I think I have calmed down in the past year or so but there is still a part of me who will always remain zealous.
