Just a short reverie, guys and gals.

A year and a half ago, I was not supposed to engage in any social media network activities. However, when I tried Facebook and Twitter just to keep abreast with the technological pursuits of interactive association that were once out of reach of ordinary people, I was hooked instantly.

Today, easy-to-execute computing power in the hands of every Joe and Jane is a daily reality. Presented with an increasing menu of various platforms. a simple Juan like myself made a bolder decision to go even further. The blog world beckoned: I was pulled to its orbit.

Here I am, a year older in the WordPress community, I offer you once again my humble efforts to entertain, possibly to educate and always keeping my desire to inspire and motivate.

What is new?





Another one of my experiments, the unusual menu arrangement above will be the mainstay of the static front page. Later, they will be replaced by graphic representations (which I have not yet finished). Also, at the bottom are the navigation buttons for sub pages.

In addition. some of the old posts were removed or rewritten. The rest were updated, re-tagged, re-categorized and moved from one place to another. After all the revisions are finished, every post will be provided with navigation buttons at the bottom.

The overhaul I promised will be a continuous endeavor. In my opinion, this is what blogging is all about: constant change.

Blessings and well wishes from

the farmer,

the blogger,

  4. Congrats on being another year older in blogging. You’re right–we need to change things up every now and then. Tidy up our pages, delete what’s not working, add new additions, etc. I’m not as good about it as I should be. Maybe this will inspire me. :)

    • Thank you. :)
      You’ll find a way to do your own overhaul. Personally, I thought of the idea because I often get lost inside my own blog. (laughs) My experiments continue.
      I do appreciate the comment,

  5. And I think we have been friends for the duration. Looks great. The pineapple is a perfect image to start with. In Colonial times in Williamsburg Virginia , the pineapple was a symbol of welcome used in decorations for the door and in the dining room. blessings !

    • It’s the first time I heard about this. Thanks for the historical information. :)
      Yeah, long time, I hope we continue our journey together.

  6. I am awarding you the “Wonderful Team Member Readership Award” and the “I’m NOT Featured on Freshly Pressed Award”. No obligation to accept, but if you’re interested, have a look at this post http://wp.me/p41c99-GV which provides the details of the award. Congratulations!

    • Thank you for considering me in your list. I am honored. :)
      It might take a while before I could create the acceptance post but I will, eventually.
      I appreciate your support.

    • I am up to neck with the overhaul. I created scheduled posts so that I could do the updates in the background. :)
      Thank you for the support.

  7. You are braver than me to change your theme. I get cold sweats when I even think about it after all the time I spent trying to figure our how to set up a blog page.

    Regards and good will blogging

    • I had the same sweaty feeling before. (laughs)
      Here’s what I did, I experimented a lot.
      You can go to the Themes and check which do you like. Press preview. Not activate. This will take time. I allotted a day for the choice every time. :)
      Once you chose a theme, activate. You can customize before activating. Check the look and features if you are satisfied. If not, you can go back to your old theme by following the same procedure. All the settings before will stay as is.
      I think I found the theme I like. But I am not closing the door for future change.
      Try it. You might like the result. Good luck!

  8. Congratulations and in only a year, you have one hundred likes and lots of comments, too! I am in awe of your beginning and how on earth do you keep up?!! Smiles, Robin

    • Thank you for the kind words. :)
      The Welcome page is new. AM (short for About Me) is now a sub page. The overhaul isn’t finished yet. :)
      Blogging is fun. There’s always new to discover and learn about.
