The Road I’m On

Woah! I haven’t blogged for almost a week and it was driving me crazy! :O Well, there’s a reason for it, of course. I was backing up my site and didn’t want to have changes in the database because I felt it was necessary to move to a new cPanel, but I couldn’t wait any longer so I stayed with my old one and I could add my new domain, the domain I won from Kya’s competition, as an add-on domain. Gosh, Kya is really generous and awesome! x3 I feel kind of bad for being so impatient. T_T

Speaking of blogging, I am kind of annoyed at tags. I don’t really see the point when you can have your post in a Category. And seeing some sites with Tag clouds kind of irks me; I’ve always thought they look messy, but you could tell from their tags what they are blogging about more and more often than not it would it be love or quotes. Or maybe it’s just me. I always make sure that I put a post in only one category. I don’t know why, but I want my posts to belong to only one category. XD I logged on to my first blog on WordPress, which is using version 2.6.2 and I haven’t realized how different it is from the current one. πŸ˜› I’ve really forgotten how it looked like, but here’s a screenshot.

Anyway, this my first post for twenty-ten. πŸ˜› Can you tell? Haha. I’ve been kind of busy lately and sooner or later, you’ll find me updating less. Yes, I’ve anticipated my now-busy-and-will-be-busier schedule and would want the sem to end right away. XD School made me busy, that’s a first. And fanlistings made me too. πŸ˜› But running and making them is really fun. πŸ™‚ I don’t regret joining that side of the web. Haha.

I made Clumsy, my first ever fanlisting and have adopted a Harry Potter related fanlisting as well, but I haven’t even started on it yet. I’m happy, of course, because it’s my first adoption and it’s from a fandom that I really, really love. 8D If you want, you can visit my collective: Pygmypuff and we can be collective affiliates there if you want. *hint hint nudge nudge* ~_^

Updates: 1 icon texture pack, 2 brush sets, 1 tutorial

For the first time, I will ask you guys some questions. ^_^

  1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories?
  2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings?
  3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD

    I agree with you. I don’t see the point of having tags and categories at the same time. I prefer categories; it’s more organized and it looks neater too.

    Aww! I want to be affiliates! XD But I’ll fix my site first. Lol. I don’t know how to design layouts anymore πŸ™

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories? They’re fine..but somehow I find them difficult for me to use & come up with. Some sort of logic for them, I mean.

    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings?
    Well I have a couple of fanlistings, yes. But..sort of growing out of it all currently.

    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD
    Try…hmm.. Silverchair! They’re an australian band.

    =O I use tags πŸ˜› It is a bit pointless using tags and categories, when I first started using wordpress I wondered what was the difference between the two but I use both of them. I don’t really like tag clouds, I saw those flash tag cloud things, those annoyed me. Wow wordpress looks completely different, it a lot more organized and professional looking now.

    Welcome to the fanlisting world πŸ˜€ Glad to see you join it. *pokes* Want to affiliate with my collective http://fan.lollibean.net?
    I love your collective name and the layout is adorable!

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories?
    I think tags can be more specific than categories and they’re useful in organizing your posts.

    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings?
    Yup I have one, I love creating and joining fanlistings. One thing I love is when I see people join the fanlistings, its a great feeling seeing so much love for the subject ^^

    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD
    I’m horrible at music recommendations since I listen to a lot of 80’s and visual kei. Most people I know are put off by that -_-
    Music recommendations:
    Jason Mraz: Genius lyrics and amazing music but he’s not really rock πŸ˜›
    *shuffles through music player*
    Safetysuit, Skillet, Shinedown, the script

    I don’t like that many bands or singers, usually its only a few of their songs unless it Jason Mraz and Miyavi.
    Bands; I fail at recommending them, but I can recommend songs xD

    Oh would you recommend You’re Beautiful kdrama? I need something to watch =D

    Congratulations on your fanlisting. Your website looks great by the way. And because your website looks soo awesome, I have listed you on my favourite websites page. http://integrity.brokenfall.org/index.php/website/links
    Talking about changes to your website (were we even tlking bout that? O.O), I have some changes as well. I’ve recently put up a plugboard service as well πŸ˜› Aren’t you proud of me? But nobody’s applied yet -_- Lol
    How you been? I missed you so much!
    1. I don’t mind tags. They tell you what the post is about, even though I put the randomest tags ever πŸ˜› Categories I’m not very fond of.
    2. Fanlistings are so awesome, I just am not very skilled to make one.
    3. Paramore, Muse, And I seem to love Taylor Swift even though everybody seems to hate her. Make a fanlisting for her and I’ll DEF. join! XD!!

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories?
    Aw, this question stole what I was going to comment on the blog itself about. πŸ˜› I like tags more than categories, but I think they’re kind of useless either way. I don’t browse through people’s blogs by categories; if I want to read more, I go in reverse chronological order. And I really don’t think people in general will read related posts or anything like that.

    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings?
    No, and I don’t like them. πŸ˜›

    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD
    Erm… I don’t have any. :S

  6. Simone says:

    When I first started blogging with WordPress I always wondered what was the real purpose of tags if you have categories and honestly I still don’t know. I just not recently started using them though and wow…I don’t think I could ever limit my blog to just one category.

    I’m glad you back though ~_^

    Lol, now that you mention it I do think their relationship stresses her out…way too much. That’s why she needs to leave him to me because I definately enjoy ours πŸ™‚

    Hehe, I will probably get hip on the fanlistings a little later and yeah she probably is jealous but in my eyes, that a good thing. Obviously your doing something right!

  7. oh well that tags and categories uses are I REALLY DONT KNOW haha, wala ako maisip kung ano talaga, siguro nakakahelp un para kay google,
    Fanlistings?, hmm Sumali ako kaso, I dont know the deeper meaning o fit XDD
    Aww you prefer rock? di kasi mahilig dooon haha siguro green-day πŸ˜€ not sure ah :

    HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR!! *hugz* miss you all! Also took a break at blogging, phew, I’m kinda relieved actually :p i’ll be spending less time blogging this year I think.. or maybe not. let’s see!

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories? i find it complicated too XD tags i think are really mainly for search sites to find. So just choose a few words that can describe a post. Tags make it easier for others to search your blog I think. I use many categories for one post, I can’t help it. I think it’s useful but maybe having one category for one post is better. But my mind is fickle so there XD
    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings? I used to but then lost track of it XD hehe don’t want to join now bUT LOVE PYGMY PUFF COLLECTIVE BECAUSE IT’S HARRY POTTER! πŸ˜€ whoot!
    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD
    Hmm… i can’t think of any good rock music now but I really loved Bat for lashes, it’s kinda mellow, dark music. haha try to search for the band. Lead singer is a girl. Themes of her songs are weird. Search for the song Daniel πŸ˜€ That song got stuck in my head for a long time XD

    I never did understand the “TRUE POINT” of tags…in all honesty I find them “QUIET POINTLESS”

    WP has come a VERY LONG WAY and I like the WP of today – LESS COMPLICATED!!!

    Congratz on your first Fanlisting and your adopted Fanlisting – your collective looks AWESOME!!!!

    Have a good one hun!

    hehe..
    It really feels weird to not blog for so long! I always make back-ups for my site before putting up a new layout. That way, if something goes wrong, I’ll be safe. πŸ™‚

    I don’t really mind tags. I use them! LOL. That’s because I use FunUpdate, and if ever I’m trying to find an entry, the tags/categories really help a lot. It makes everything easier.

    Since the day we came back to school, I’ve been really busy..Exams are at the end of the month after all.. Which is really stressing. But I just can’t wait to get over it!

    I just want to ask, how much did you pay overall for a domain? Like name, and hosting.

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories? They’re ok. As long as the tags don’t exceed 5 or something close.

    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings? I didn’t join any fanlistings. To be honest, I don’t really know what they are. Are they like forums or something?

    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD Marianas Trench or Green Day πŸ™‚

    Senyth! Your back ~_^

    Thanks πŸ˜› I’m Chinese and proud. πŸ˜€

    I’m too young to enter the lotto. But I don’t really think I can win anyways xD

    Ah I love K-Pop. πŸ˜€ & Korea seems really cool. I have a few Korean friends πŸ˜›

    Haha I’ve heard of the Ugly Truth. Seems good! πŸ™‚

    WHAT?! Why would someone kill their own child because of the mother?! That doesn’t make sense. How messed up. @_@

    Lol thanks & it’s okay πŸ™‚

    Congratz on the domain! I can’t wait to see it up ^_^

    Wow! WordPress looks so old there! Now it’s all chrome-y πŸ˜›

    I don’t use tags…I don’t really get why you need tags when you have categories. Categories are so much easier. xD

    1. What do you think of the uses of tags and categories? Categories FTW. Tags are just odd to me. xD
    2. Do you have a collective? What are your thoughts about fanlistings? No..I don’t really get the fanlisting stuff. xD I’m so sad.
    3. Suggest me a really good band or artist. I don’t mind the genre as long as it’s not heavy metal, but I prefer rock. XD Hm; Jack’s Mannequin, Jason Derulo….Cobra Starship, Big Bang, 30H!3…:D
