Blogger Theme Improvements

I have to admit, I'm impressed with the new blogger templates. These are Contempo, Soho, Emporio, and Notable. As observed, they are now following today's web standards which is using responsive layout. Back then if you would use the old blogger themes, you would be redirected to a mobile site instead, a standard approach to improve website performance back then. But since it is 2017 and most online surfers are using either high solution computers or smartphones, I think it's more applicable to use responsive themes.

A problem with these new themes is that some of the gadgets you put in the layout might not work except for the basic built in ones such as profile, Google adsense, archive, etc. Best way as of now to manage the gadgets is via customize theme. But if you still miss the old layout you can always use the classic themes as they are still there in the theme selection

As of now I am using the Contempo theme as it is simply a one-column blog. Other themes are still…


I am falling.
Not in a romantic way.
Heading towards oblivion,
Left to be forgotten.

My body drifts,
In a sea of despair.
Nowhere to go,
Nowhere to be found.

I am hollow.
No reason to love,
No reason to live.
I am alone.

Though I still live
For yet another day
A meaning to life,
That needs an answer.

I'm Back...again

Yes it's been a while since the last post back in 2014. A lot has happened and I got distracted that I forgot to post updates here in this blog. This blog is supposed to be my personal journal. Despite of having a lot of thoughts at the end of the day, I always forget to write them down.
But I hope I can keep posting for the next days as I don't have any other places to put free written blogs. My other website, is often used for professional purposes.

I'm just worried that blogger didn't seem to change after all these years apart from the new policies. Although I don't think they are going to remove this service since they are also using Blogger like the official AngularJS blog which surprisingly is even using a default theme.

There are a lot of things I'd like to share. Perhaps in a few day's I'll be telling my stories. For not I'd be cleaning some parts of this website for the moment such as the widgets and layout.

Remembering Glenda

Here are some of the damages left by Typhoon Glenda in our area

The electric post is scary. I hope there would be action taken on that.

What's up?

Perhaps I owe you an apology for my last post. Well I tried to file my resignation but I can't come to it because I don't have a replacement as of now. We're few in the office.
Well I could have easily left but I wouldn't like to leave the previous company damaged as I am the only person capable of doing my task now.
Right now I'm just waiting for somebody to replace me. But I guess it's not my time to go for now. And I have to be considerate since they somehow hired me when I was applying a few years back so maybe I should at least return the favor. I just hope I can handle more tasks coming ahead. I'm on a one-man team as of now.

Resigning/Going Freelance?

At this point, I am currently in the stage of  going freelance. Although it gives me a lot of negative ideas. I don't know if I would be successful from this.
Well there is a lot of changes that would happen. Some are good and well there's always the negative part.
Although one of the good points is you have control on your career, more time at home, etc.

Why Resign? Why bother? I've been bored.
It's not that I don't like the office (although I don't like it when it comes to project management... no offense ). I've also been bored. I've been seeing these portfolios. These people who 'invent' their own apps. And even well known lone programmers. Can't I also be like them? I love programming. In fact, I'd rather not to be in the management just to be programming.
But the daily routine is really boring. A rat race as they described. I am also fond of Robert Kiyosaki's books, somehow he explains some disadvantages of being an employee.

First post in audioboo

listen to ‘First post’ on Audioboo

I just made my first post in audioboo. Very cool website, just like a smaller version for podcasting as microblogging(like twitter) is for blog, and boo(what they call it) is to podcasting. Very nice website and easy to use. Comes in a pinboard style layout. Although you can only upload up to 3 mins although you can purchase a premium account but hey what's the essence of "micropodcasting" if you're extending.
In this post I used my cellphone for recording then edited it using Audacity.
The website has a lot of features and I believe this will be a great website someday.
