HTML????

I’ve stumbled across a simple but rather elegant website. It was quite beautiful, and they told me it was nearly free to create!

Whaaa?????

So I contacted the dude who owned it. Let’s just call him Dude. So I emailed Dude, asking a very simple question…”How do you DO that??” Then Dude answered. He told me, “With HTML, my friend.”

Even Bigger Whaaaaaa?????

Soo, umm, I’m (attempting to) learning HTML coding. The fancy website actually helps you do it, believe it or not, and that is awesome. You can use Notepad, and there’s this nifty little text to html converter, it’s really quite good. Dude can do this well – I plan to email him around 10 000 times asking for help. But Dude is ever so nice, he won’t mind.

Once my little website is complete, I’ll let you see it. It’s basically going to be a blog, but self-hosted.

Oh dear. She gets another blog. šŸ˜‰

Stats, Sweet Stats

Well… I don’t usually look at stats. But today I realised the last time I checked that my blog hasn’t crashed and burned yet was sometime last May.

So I decided to take a look.

And the feeling that hit me wasn’t the depressed, “what’s the point” feeling but a happy, “OMG what happened!” sort of feeling. šŸ˜€

My views haven’t exactly gone through the roof, but we’re getting there. We are slowly filling a balloon – metaphor for my blog – with air (ok ok its helium.) which is, of course, my lovely readers. Yes, you!

Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post, to visit this site, maybe you’re even subscribed!

I should receive an award. Only a small one, for some websites have got into the thousands on subscribers; but an award nonetheless. I would be so honoured to receive it. I would thank my mummy and daddy. Yup, can’t forget about family!

I would thank my few friends who talked me into writing stuff, showing me that I actually really enjoyed it. And finally…

I would be honoured to thank my all-time inspiration to start blogging, the author doesn’t even know me but we share a name, her blog showed me the wonderful world of WordPress blogging! It is…*Queue dramatic drum roll and silence*… Emily, from Emily Eats & Exercises!

Well. It’s unfortunate you never noticed me on your blog. You led me to achieve great things (at least to me they’re great!) and I never would have done it without you, and also my random Google search. This search in itself was thanks to a video from someone – Oh no, I forgot who – but let’s not go into strange details

Thank you so much, guys! You, the readers, deserve the biggest applaud of all! *Cheer*

Jewellrey – My Word Of The Week

You may think it’s an ordinary word, in saying it at least, but look closer at the letters; look closer at the form of the word…

Doesn’t it look strange? It looks a bit like someone just picked up a handful of letters in Scrabble and threw them onto the board!

And the other players probably thought – well, for one that this player didn’t have a clue of how it was played – but also they could’ve thought:

Hang on. We’ve been needing a word for all these bracelets and neckaces and rings we’re wearing. We could use this word!

And that was how the word jewellrey was made! Honestly, when I typed this word in the title, I thought I’d written it all wrong. I used spell check and when it said that my spelling was right, I typed it onto an online dictionary because I thought it was broken!

But anyway…in other news! I only found out a few stories he wrote… I’ll write three and count it as three facts!

Cheating, I know, but a lot of big things and changes are going on in my life and I am struggling to even find time for this blog! So anyway, here are three stories Jorge Luis Borges wrote. They are extremely random (just to warn you!)

So they’re just three stories that he wrote, but there are so many more. I was interested and searched for stories written by Jorge, I got a list and I think my eyes popped out of my head! Really!

Anyway,Ā  go my lovelies, read some stories written by Jorge Luis Borges while wearing lots of jewellrey šŸ™‚

Sorry! Let’s Talk About it…

I’ve been so caught up in real life that I have forgotten about all my lovely blog readers!

So I’m going to tell you about…

Nothing. Nothing has always fascinated me, the way it’s been given a word – all to itself, the lucky non-thing! – but it’s not even there. I mean, why not give a word to an object or an amazing person? (Hint, hint.)

Because nothing is beautiful. You’ve seen or heard reports of homeless people, with no food, shelter, some don’t even own clothes. We all feel sorry and grateful that we have food, shelter clothes. And it is upsetting to see that. But they all have something beautiful, the handsomest thing in the world…behold, they have nothing!

It’s very hard to find nothing. All the tv detectives, saying they’ve found nothing. They’re so lucky! Obviously it’s not what they wanted to find, but nothing is so hard to spot. There isn’t even nothing in the air around us; theres loads of gases, and obviously energy, which I’ll tell you about a different time. So if you find nothing, remember that it is a precious thing, and although you cannot possess it, just remember and be grateful for your experience of finding it!

Nothing in the dictionary: nothing can be a noun, a verb, even an adjective at times. I searched nothing in my dictionary and found…

1. no thing; not anything; naught: to say nothing.
2. no part, share, or trace (usually followed by of ): The house showed nothing of its former magnificence.
3. something that is nonexistent.
4. nonexistence; nothingness: The sound faded to nothing.
5. something or someone of no importance or significance: Money is nothing when you’re without health.
6. in no respect or degree; not at all: It was nothing like that. Nothing dismayed, he repeated his question.
amounting to nothing, as in offering no prospects for satisfaction, advancement, or the like: She was stuck in a nothing job.

Idioms

for nothing,

free of charge
for no apparent reason or motive
futilely; to no avail: They had gone to a great deal of expense for nothing.
in nothing flat, in very little time: Dinner was finished in nothing flat.
make nothing of,

to treat lightly; regard as easy.
to be unsuccessful in comprehending: He could make nothing of the complicated directions.
nothing but, nothing other than; only: We could see nothing but fog.
nothing doing,

Infomal . emphatically no; certainly not.
no activity, inducement, advantage, etc., present to the eye: We drove through the town but there seemed to be nothing doing.
Wow. There’s a lot of ways you can use the word nothing. So although nothing is so hard to find, it’s everywhere around us!
Confusing, I know. Youll get the hang of it.

Write where your thoughts take you! – 3

Well, this is a bit late. I was meant to do this first thing when I woke up, but i’ve waited until almost an hour later!

Oh well, we’re not all perfect. I was thinking about doing one of the major tasks I wrote down – go all minimalist on my room. I started being a minimalist a looooong time ago…haven’t done much since to do with minimalism, until now. Now I want to do this properly for real.

I’m slightly out of things to write about today but I just thought of writing about my book. Its coming along nicely, if not slowly, at a chapter a day. I need to speed it up if I want to get this done in time! So I have to make these slightly shorter. I wonder what to post about today, if not this… Hmm. Looks like daily post has to come to my rescue. Again.

I also got this new iPad app that lets me post anywhere that has Internet connection! It’s really good, but still hasn’t updated itself so that it has my new blog, zen advice.
Anyway, I must go now, have a lot to do today! Exercising, Reiki (yes I’ve taken it up again) tidying up, and of course writing my book. So bye!

Top 7 Reasons to Blog

I’m out of inspiration. Again. It seems that, now, all bloggers have hit a brick wall or something!

To help me get over this wall, I decided to write a list of reasons I love to blog (based on a Daily Post topic) to sort of build some steps so I have an easier time of hurdling this brick wall.

Why not 10? I can think of many reasons I love blogging, and why you should too. Well, the answer us pretty simple: 7 is my lucky number. IĀ  just feel… attracted to this number; I much prefer it to ten. Of course, this also makes it a little different to the millions of other “top ten” lists out there.

By the way – because I randomly feel like it – I’m adding some colour to this post. Just because.

So here they are! My top 7 reasons: (in no particular order)

  • You feel so peaceful while blogging.
  • You feel great after writing a fantastic post
  • You can look out for inspiration every day, which makes life just that little bit better.
  • Other people will read your posts, and get (hopefully!) a good feeling.
  • You can connect with other people
  • Blogging brings out your creative side and you can do what you want – it’s your blog!
  • It’s loads of fun!

Obviously I will add more to these reasons in separate posts. I will also create a series of posts that helps new bloggers get to grips in the amazing BlogLand!

So keep on your toes – new posts will be coming in very soon…
