Silly hobbies

February 16, 2014 - 04:16 | 2 replies

When I was a kid we used to have these sort of friendship books. A person who owned the book would ask their friends to fill in their names and some details, such as favourite foods or music and such. One of the things to fill in was usually hobbies. I would often write down things like reading, writing, drawing. I...

How can you get your blog in top of searches? What makes your website work? What is CSS? Why do you need to use alt-texts on images? Who is reading your blog? Why doesn't your site look so great on mobile devices and how to fix it? How can you make commenting easier for your readers? What's the difference between...

What to do when blogging stops working for you?

February 11, 2014 - 01:33 | 0 replies

Many of us bloggers hit that same question at some point: Where to go from here? I have asked it, Nadine asked it recently and maybe you are asking it right now. We have other responsibilities and if the blog we are currently running isn't bringing the bread to the table it can be difficult to justify spending time...

The girl and the boy

February 6, 2014 - 21:48 | 0 replies

It’s dark. Some of the streetlights aren’t working and there's no people around. Loud music plays in distance. Only few loud cheers and thrilled screams cut through it. A young woman comes out of a building. She is wearing a blue wig which makes her look like a manga character. Her denim skirt is short and there’s a...

You are not special (and that's really good)

February 1, 2014 - 23:59 | 1 reply

I have had struggles in my life. Struggles I'm willing to talk about publicly and those I'm not. I have had anxiety attacks or panic attacks or what ever you want to call them. I am scared of my own shadow. I'm jumpy, I'm weird and in times I recognise the symptoms of hypochondria (mom's a nurse, go figure). I have...

What happened when I didn't comment on Facebook for a week

January 27, 2014 - 02:21 | 0 replies

Do you want to get your blood pressure high? Try reading some comments on Facebook. Especially on public posts of politicians and others alike. Or just the comments some of your Facebook friends write on your posts. Hmm. Maybe I need better friends. Add to it writing your own comment and then someone replying...

Do you care?

January 25, 2014 - 03:38 | 1 reply

For some reason caring is often seen as a bad thing. Those who appear not to care are considered as cool. People who care keep getting told not to care so much or get scoffed at when they voice or show how much they care. It would be better for them and apparently less scary for the others if they didn't care. Not...

Fixing iframe videos on responsive website

January 19, 2014 - 03:32 | 2 replies

Have you ever embedded a video from YouTube or a song from Spotify on a responsive website? Unless there's some sort of css-trick to fix the width and height of the video, it will be oversized and impossible to view on narrow screens. The simple fix would be to add inside media queries the desired width and height as...

Frozen 2013 (with Pops 14: Let It Go by Idina Menzel)

January 10, 2014 - 02:25 | 0 replies

I'm not usually the biggest fan of musicals or the musical performances on Disney movies. Mary Poppins singing cheerfully is so terribly wrong. But there are always exceptions to any of my rules and I've just stumbled upon a big exception to my musical related problems. It's not the first for me, yet a good example...
