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, jeremecausing.com 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.
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…
