Can anything come easy in your life?

When I was in school, all the things I was learning I understood as the teacher was explaining them to me.  The teacher would go over English, Math, History, and other subjects. However, the things we learn in life were never taught to us in school.  I have been to the store a few times and notice that the cashier had to read the amount of change they were supposed to give me back.  I already added in my head, while waiting for the cashier to make the change.  Most stores have a scanner, for the prices and the computer tells them the amount to give back.

Now trying to learn the millions of programs that make up computer systems is another thing.  I have been studying Google Analytics for a week; the course was supposed to take only a couple of hours.  The program entails watching a few show videos, and then answering a couple of questions.  You would think that it would be simple for me, considering I just completed a computer programming class.  I have had so many classes in the past, what can I say I love to learn new things.  Somehow, lately nothing seems simple in life.

These days when preparing for your future, you have to also be prepared to go right, then left, no go under, then go around, in order to get where you want to be.  In the mean time, follow me to see what I learn in preparing for the future.

Celebrating Poetry, All Month Long

I think therefore I am.

The WordPress.com Blog

April is National Poetry Month, and we love each day’s flurry of new posts tagged #nationalpoetrymonth in the WordPress.com Reader and across the internet. WordPressers are busy in the #napowrimo tag as well, participating in NaPoWriMo, Maureen Thorson’s annual project that encourages and challenges poets to write a poem a day in April.

Let’s look at some poetry we’ve stumbled upon recently across the WordPress.com community.

“Me as a Child” series, Silver Birch Press

We’re enjoying the Me as a Child series at Silver Birch Press — poems on childhood by various poets. Consider this excerpt from “Swarm” by Alan King:

She was a sixth grader, who mistook
my lamppost legs and power line arms
for a fifth grader.

She was as old as the boys
throwing grass in each other’s hair,
rolling around in a kind of awkward
tango towards manhood.

“I Allow Myself Poetry,” Summer Pierre

Poetry is…

Ensuring Your Site is Mobile-Friendly

Count up to how many days it will take me to achieve the success. I am always aiming to do better in life.

The WordPress.com Blog

Today, Google released a change to its algorithm that gives higher search scores to sites it deems “mobile-friendly.” Curious WordPressers might be asking:

  1. How can I be sure my site is mobile-friendly?
  2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

1. See if your site is mobile-friendly

Visit Google’s mobile-friendly test link and enter your site’s address (e.g., http://dailypost.wordpress.com or http://automattic.com). Google will then analyze your site and declare it mobile-friendly or not.

Did your site pass? YAY! Pass GO and collect $200 from the Community Chest.

2. What can I do if my site is not mobile-friendly?

If your site failed Google’s test, you might be using an older theme that’s not responsive. Responsive themes change their layout slightly when someone visits via tablet or mobile phone to ensure that important content like the site title, post titles, and post content can be read on smaller screens.

Are you the protective type?

Are you the protective type?  This came to my mind today as I was thinking the family values.  Most mothers and fathers will do what they can to protect their children.  It can be so rewarding to know that.

It can be hard to let things go.

Sometimes it is hard to let go of things that are happening around you.  We want to get mad, or take it personal even the unavoidable things.  Like death, people die everyday leaving many things unresolved.  There are things to be cleared up the ones who are let behind.

People ask you to do things, when you have so much to do already.  It can make you feel, even more overwhelmed.  The pressure can take us to a place that we all hate to go, depression.

At times like that when we feel a lot of pressure we should think about Jesus, and what he endured for us.  The price he paid for our sins.  When we remember him, then we realized our complaints, and problems are small.

We know we can never live up to half of what Jesus endured for us.

Is it time for me to be promoted?

Is it time for me to be promoted? Should I launch my work, or is it time to being in the professional? For many, it is almost graduation time in schools from elementary to college. There is nothing like accomplishing something that you work hard to achieve.

I just completed my year one as a writer/blogger. It has been a rocky year learning so many new things at one time. I didn’t get as much accomplished as I would have like to, which means I have so much more to do in years two. If I was in college, I would be working toward my Masters or PhD, in at least four subjects.

FOLLOW ME, as I continue to learn what is needed to be successful in life. I have some great things coming up.
