Daily Prompt – Word Of The Day: Stunning

It’s amazing when people who you know change so much that it is stunning to your system. I am seeing this a lot on Facebook where friends are belligerent and mean spirited. They will attack your opinion which feels like they are attacking you. It’s also stunning when they don’t care that they hurt you deeply. The world is full of stunning situations and people these days.

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.

Saying Farewell To Blogging

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.
