Pretty soon there will be a mini-gallery of sorts to be added here on ADRIATASTIC! I installed JournalPress plugin and NextGen Gallery, where I will be posting a gallery of some of my photography and other stuff I feel like posting.
Though I don’t usually write about site updates in the main blog (I still have yet to search for an asides plugin. I’m not using my Twitter account just to post updates and most of the people who follow me don’t really care about all of that), this is another test entry, primarily involving JournalPress. Once I post this entry up here, it should also be posted in my LJ account as well. In that way, I can get my LJ active more or less without even have to bother copying and pasting posts that are relevant to be posted on LJ.
You see, many of my friends are in LJ (well, many of my close friends that is). Back in the days individually-hosted blogs were the in thing, with their own custom designs and fancy-schmancy blogging/CMS systems. Today, social networking pretty much killed the scene, but as a designer myself, I still got my pride. Designing my own blog designs hosted in my own server is one of the only ways I can improve my web designing skills one way or the other and free blogging services such as LJ and VOX (and yes, I have a VOX account too) are preventing people from visiting individually-hosted blogs like mine. I had to actually copy and paste some of my entries to my LJ just so my friends can actually read it and comment (none of them visits my blog anymore with reasons: too busy, too inconvenient, and it’s not trendy enough, whatever that means…).
Well, I got nothing witty to write about tonight. Afer all, it’s almost 3 am here (though it’s a weekend. Sunday to be exact). I’ll write something notable when I’m completely awake and inspiration-charged.
Okay, yo, fingers crossed.
(That “LJ Cut”/”More” cut was also part of this test entry.)
