In Korea, today is Children’s Day. In other parts of the world, it’s Cinco de Mayo. Oh, how I would love a bowl of guacamole and a margarita right now.
After my jaunt to Seoul on Saturday for pre-Buddha’s birthday celebrations, I debated going again on Sunday because the weather looked like crap. I’m a huge fan of festivals, but not when it includes being cold in the rain. As the sun started setting, the weather didn’t look any better and I opted to stay home instead.
One reason for staying home was to work on my blog. As you can see, there’s a new template. First, I upgraded to WordPress 2.5.1, and it looks really snazzy. (Trust me, you’ll have to take my word for it.) It wasn’t as easy as people on the internet made it out to be, but I eventually got through it.
Afterwards, I started working on the blog theme. This took some time too, because all I know about CSS and PHP is what pops up when I google how to do specific tasks. As you can see, when it comes down to it, I’m a 3 column kind of girl. There’s just more real estate to play with.
On the right-hand side, you can also see my Twitter widget. I’ve been Twittering for a short time now, and you can “follow” me at http://twitter.com/laoocean. “Tweets” are basically like the “John Doe is _______” feature of Facebook, but more frequently. I can also update what I’m doing by sending a text message from my cell phone to my account. It’s up to the minute blogging! Do you want to know what I think of Iron Man before I even leave the theater?!? Well, now you will!
Through tweets, I discovered two good Flickr related sites:
- Flickr Leech – You can see my photostream (or anyone else’s) in a larger page view than on the normal flickr site. Check my stream out.
- Flickriver – Check out interesting Flickr photos, 500 at a time! There’s so much inspiration there.
Overall, I’m happy with the new look, but will be customizing different aspects of the site in the future.
