The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something intriguing and meaningful, and can tell a particular story within the frame. Continue reading “Pop of Colour – Photo 101”
Day Two Assignment on Blogging 101.
Change according to the old cliché is the only constant thing in life.
Change is distinct. Change occurs in our daily lives and most times, cannot be noticed or observed except one take a close and deeper look. Change is one thing that we must accept, if we need to move forward.
Failing to embrace change mean we want to remain in a particular status-quo that wouldn’t bring us any good growth. We would then become obsolete, redundant and complacent.
Change is ephemeral.
Change is normal.
Change is progressive and it’s what makes everyday life different and interesting.
By today’s tasks, I was once again reminded about a phenomenon that is very glaring in our daily lives. As humans, we desire transformation in certain areas of our lives. We take practical steps to enable us achieve this goal.
Some changes pass through a period of trials and errors. Strategizing and re-strategizing. Getting it wrong and bracing up to redo it until we get it right. I am a case study of this trial and error because I’ve tried some customizing on my blog without success. This is because I didn’t pay attention to the WordPress tutorials or guides as I ought to.
As at the time I started blogging, which is quite recent, I knew I wasn’t very satisfied with my blog outlook. And I silently wished to change its appearance. But as humans, I was slow to taking the move. Call it procrastination and you would have guessed right. I thought it was a cumbersome exercise to undertake. Hence the reluctance in me didn’t give me the nudge to be adventurous. And when I eventually tried, I didn’t have the patience to get it right.
I am happy that today’s assignment prompted me to take action, this time with zest and seriousness. A big thanks goes to the facilitators of the Blogging 101 Course.
Today, my blog has a coat of new colours, a new Theme as well as a new Site Title and Tagline.
Before the Site Title was – SSD’s Random Thoughts
AND the Tagline was – Personal, Cultural Vibes, Articles, Poetry and more.
Site Title is – SSD’s Giggles and Tales
And the Tagline is – Telling Life’s Stories with a Smile.
I believe that the new look is better than the old one.
These new names are explanatory. The ‘SSD’ means ‘Stella Simple Dimple’. I hope it depicts the blogs content. My tales on this blog will be told with a sweet dimpled smile laced with a sense of humour.
So, as you peruse the changes on this new site, kindly let me know if you feel a giggle and a sparkle in your spirit. Tell me whatever you are thinking right now with regards to my new improved Blog Site.
Should the new look stay? Maybe a few touches here and there…
