Yet Another Theme Change…

I wanted to do something different than just a blog and to challenge my ability to take a stock theme and customize it to the way I wanted it to look. Using the Sela theme that is somewhat light and airy I tweaked it using some CSS and gave it the Tony touch. The blog functions as a website as well as a blog so I have the best of both worlds. Let me know how you like it and is it easy to navigate. Thanks for putting up with my changing stuff around. As long as you can read it on all your devices that is what I am going for.

And Wait For The Feedback

Whenever you post anything you then wait for some sort of response to what you have created. Sometimes the wait is very short and other times the wait is very long. One should never expect 100% positive comments to ones post but when a person comes in hot with some really negative space feedback then it kind of jars you makes you feel like perhaps you should have said something different.

Here’s how I respond to negative space feedback…I delete it. Yep, delete immediately. This blog is here to promote positivity (but realism definitely has its place here) and I want to make that point clear for everyone. Yeah I am a sensitive person that’s why I take time away from Facebook when things get too hot there. My blog is a refuge, a haven and I don’t want to respond to negative stuff.

I will never get personal or attack anyone however I do reserve to be righteously angry about injustice, hatred and that sort of thing. When you write something personal and meaningful to you I think there should be some safe space and perhaps saying nothing is better than going negative.

And yet we all wait for the feedback and hope that its good, constructive and helpful.

Daily Prompt: Cavity

Sometimes one thing can lead to another. I broke a tooth recently and when my dentist took an x-ray of the messed up molar a tooth right next to it was discovered to have a cavity. I suppose I need to do a better job of taking care of my choppers/teeth. Cavities are expensive and painful. Too many of them would lead to something more extreme.

Daily Prompt: Funnel

A funnel is a handy thing to have when you want to put liquid or something else from one source into another. In sales its good to have some accounts and possible transactions in a funnel that you can close. Bad people funnel money from one place to another illegally. It’s interesting how the word funnel can be associated with a wide array of functions that are helpful to harmful.

Daily Prompt: Reservation

A reservation is what you make for a restaurant that secures you have a table at that establishment for a specific time and date. A reservation can be something you aren’t so sure about which having that doubt and fear can sometimes save your life. Those are two different explanations for the word reservation but you know its good to have a reservation for food and for safeties sake in this crazy world we live in.

Something Older For The Blog In The New Year

The New and Improved tonyburgess1969.net

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.

Check it out and let me know what you think.

 

The Christmas Season Continues

In the Christian tradition the Christmas season is a period beginning on Christmas Day (December 25). In some churches (e.g. the Anglican Communion) the season continues until the day before the Epiphany, which is celebrated either on January 6 or on the Sunday between January 2 and 8… From Wikipedia

So if you keep your tree and other decorations up until the first part of January you are OK. Enjoy the season, all 12 days of it.
