Short Blog Post Ideas

There is a misconception that a blog post has to be lengthy and comprehensive. My approach to blogging is one that is a hybrid of a traditional blog post with that of a Tweet. 240 characters or 240 words or less can give you freedom to post thoughts, current events going on in your life and other ideas. Make a point of blogging in the moment. Post a picture and add a little text to it. Some bloggers have word prompts such as the ones from https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com can help with getting your creative juices flowing. Also you can post your favorite YouTube videos and other media.

Find quotes from people you like that inspire you and share with others.

So when you find it hard to come up with a post you can go small for big results. The key is to keep on blogging, it can be fun again.

As seen on the Chrome OS Browser

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.

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.

Classic and Contemporary

I was born in 1969 and that number is a part of the address of my blog here. Age is just a number, right? So I feel I am from a classic era in time where a lot happened and the culture had an identity all its own. However I live in contemporary times and its my goal to relate to those who are finding their way in the world and experiencing growth in this time.

Classic and contemporary are two things that are evolving, changing, rolling with the time that is going by. As we go through life we see things becoming classic all the time and new things are becoming contemporary. Being both ancient and modern at the same time can be a challenge but one that is worth it as we seek to live in the here and now.

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.
