Blogging 201: Get Read all over

So day 4 of Blogging 201

My blog is mobile-friendly. But I don’t care if it is really. I only use the lap top and all those other new gadgets are just meh to me. But since there are people who are “obsessed” to be on the internet everywhere, I’m just gonna let them have it. If you can’t see this blog, then too bad. I won’t change it. As long as you can see my writing that’s all that matters.

I’m a bit disappointed with this Blogging 201. So far it’s only been about layouts etc. I was expecting something with how to get more readers. Maybe I’ve just misunderstood it. I want people to read my blog and not look at the layout. I hope there will be less layout business in the upcoming assignments or it hasn’t been very useful for me.

So that’s done and dusted. Next!

 

Blogging 201(day 3): I change for no one

I don’t know if joining Blogging 201 was such a great idea after all. It feels like repeating. I have done a lot of difference changes before and I’m happy the way it is. I don’t care about feedback when it comes to layouts. And who looks at the front page anyway. It’s what on the inside that counts. Most people probably only read blogs through Reader.

If this was a website, maybe then the layout would be more important. Or I don’t know. I don’t think my blog attracts that many people. If you compare another blogs (food, fashion blogs etc.) that is. I just dislike the word brand. That’s one of the reasons I think this challenge isn’t what I need. It’s only 14 days so I might just hang along. And maybe I gain more followers and might learn something new. You never know.

So that this post won’t be totally boring. I always and always will use free themes. There’s a lot of good ones so why pay for one. If anyone wonders, the header I made with Photoshop tutorial. Did you think I can use Photoshop that well without help? :D

IBQ Writing Prompt: Confidence

Confidence word destruction

In this week’s IBQ Writing Prompt, it’s about confidence.

If you’re asking me then I won’t have much confidence to tell you. I thinks that has always been my problem. If I had more confidence, I would have achieved at least something to brag about. I know I can do things but it feels like others doesn’t want to give me a chance.
In school, class mates did never really pay much attention to my skills. Maybe they just didn’t care that much. I think it was only once that I heard a compliment from someone. The teachers of course gave good grades. Especially about writing.
I was never popular. I only had one or two friends. I was never very confident about my looks. When I was a child, some thought I was a boy. That’s one of the reasons why I haven’t had short hair for years.

I get temporarily confidence. When I pick up the courage to talk to strangers, I feel confident. When I studied graphic design I got support from the teachers and class mates. That made me confident. But only for a while. I think, if I had a job, I would get more confidence. My mother used to say that the reason why I don’t have enough of courage, is because I haven’t been around people enough. And she was right. She used to be introvert when she was younger but she became more extrovert when she got older. She had a lot of different jobs and met a lot of different people. So being around other people helps to get more confidence.

I just need someone to push me forward. Someone else beside my father. Writing a blog is one way to get support and confidence. But it doesn’t have the same effect as having someone in the flesh so to speak.

If I had 3 wishes, confidence would be one of them.

I am what I am and nothing changes
