Let me turn into a little nerd (if I’m not yet one) and share a blog update just to inform my readers what’s going on with this site. Work has been taking much of my time these days and I figured I’d write something random before I proceed with my travelogue series; I still have a lot of posts to publish in this blog.
Inspired by FlipNomad’s ‘Ask The Nomads’ interviews, I’ve been planning to set up my own sessions with fellow travel bloggers. I’m still a bit shy with the medium but let’s see how this will pan out. This is another venture and I should’ve started this a long time ago but it took me awhile to muster enough confidence to pursue the idea. I’ll post an interview session with a famous travel blogger soon and I hope to receive constructive feedback along the way.
Switching Hosting Providers
I’m looking forward to migrating all my entries to a new blog host to save more money. Maintaining multiple blogs in multiple hosting providers is a tedious task but this is how I started it so I should also learn how to manage everything in one account.
I’m thinking of placing banners to highlight blog posts that deem worthy to be shared. It’s still in the works but I’ll experiment how effective these will be to attract more traffic in each of these articles.
Change of Template
I recall the number of hours of tweaking my site in order to change its colors, fonts and overall layout. I also remember how long it took to check CSS and HTML codes to make it look like how it does now. It seems decent in most browsers, but there are a few bugs that I still have to find fixes for.
I’ll definitely switch to another template to streamline its functionality. One thing to prove how I badly need to change themes? I don’t have any Widgets so I manually encode the things I place in my sidebar. But without a doubt, I’ll still keep the black background and green texts; it’s what I’ve always carried ever since I started blogging.
This is how my site looks like when I first bought it. Hopefully, a Thesis theme won’t be too hard to apply in the future; a legitimate one too.
Freedom Blue Plus Template – not a spain car hire
I’ll also try maximizing efficiency by adding newer links and removing unnecessary ones. Much has been said on how it takes time for this travel blog to load so improving the theme would help a lot. Plus the content, I’ll remove very old blog posts and place them somewhere else to free this site from clutter.
Backlogs, backlogs! I have a number of blog entries that I should be writing about and they’re still stuck in my head. Zambales, Sagada, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Cagayan, Iloilo. I think a lot of travel bloggers have the same issue. In fact, when we’re not blogging, we’re mostly traveling so at least I have something to talk about in upcoming posts. But I’m taking my time as I don’t want to stress myself out, squeezing whatever I have out of writing. The quality diminishes whenever I churn out stories that are too time-bound.
Blog projects are coming my way and I‘ve been procrastinating for the longest time. I’ll finish them one by one but I know that I also have other niches to worry about. One thing’s for sure, it’s nice to get paid; but even if I’m not, I’ll still continue this passion. Any other reward that I receive out of blogging I consider a bonus.
