Pro Tip – Thank You

Standard

It’s always nice to thank people for following your blog. They are spending time checking out your posts and seeing what you create. It’s an old school way of sharing grace.

So I thank each of you if you haven’t been thanked already for following along.

Vision

Standard

Vision is an important thing to people. Without it you can find yourself wandering off course, not to say you are lost have you but, you aren’t on the course you should be on. There seems to be a struggle out there where people are trying to find their way and perhaps its they have stopped dreaming about what is possible or they think big things are impossible. This is just a little topic I wanted to explore more, what do you think?

Your Blog’s Look, What Does It Say?

Standard

A well done blog is one where its easy to read above anything else. The layout of a website is a reflection of the designer and the content producer. Getting your message across means thinking about the person who will be reading it first. A busy background, non complimentary colors and too much eye candy can get in the way of your blog being its best.

There are a lot of themes on Tumblr choose the one that suits your personality. Your theme should help you communicate what you want to say in the best possible way.

Opinions, Share At Your Own Peril

Standard

It seems that sharing your opinion on anything can be a soul cleansing experience or it can be a landmine of controversy and venom. A friend of mine who shall remain nameless did that in regard to a fandom and was soundly blasted for it. This leads to the idea that the more social and open we are about something to more we tend to pay the price.

Friends the Internet can be a great place to get information and news about important things. It can also be a great generator of unnecessary drama among people. Look at any social media platform and there has been a war of words between two people who probably were friends just a day ago.

I have said a few things that have riled up people. Challenging someones beliefs or the things that they are deeply into can be a fast way to fracture friendships. Perhaps we take things too seriously these days. Coming from a person with a thin skin maybe we need to thicken it up.

Our identity is wrapped up in things like movies, TV, books, sports teams and the like. We can be deeply hurt when someone makes fun of us for that. I think geeks and nerds are more impacted by that because that is a part of their nature. They are motivated by the stuff they are into.

You have to own the words you say. Words can impact a person in positive and negative ways.It is worth noting that you have the power to lift people up or tear them down. Opinions can change the world or they can reinforce previously held ideas. We have to respect the freedom that many of us have to express ourselves but lets do it in a responsible way.

Peace and Calm in The Chaos

Standard

In our world of chaos and turmoil I pray that each of us will come together to be the change we want to see. Many are suffering personal issues that has binded them from living life in its fullness. Our communities have violence on the streets and in the workplace. Natural disasters have impacted many people and places around the world. God I pray for your grace and peace and calm through all of this. I ask you will give us comfort in days like these.

Friends, know someone cares. There are people who think you matter and that you are special. Hang in there, this too shall pass.
