Blogging Tidbits

Most of us bloggers who have a passion in blogging or journalism always seeks a way to improve ourselves as a blogger, because there is always a way to improve our blogging skills and looking a way to build our creditable because whether it be as bloggers or in any forms of journalism such as reporting or editing newspaper it is very important that we have a creditable to back ourselves otherwise it would be hard to gain some trust from readers. Some of the people don’t think bloggers have a place in journalism, as the journalists that works in newspapers blamed us bloggers for wrecking their journalists career because since the early 2000s the blogosphere boomed and being able to deliver information quicker than newspaper would be so many newspapers lost their readers to us which this means they realized that so they decided to start their own blogs (some of them call it online newspaper but it’s blog even though they will deny that) and laid off old-fashioned newspaper editors or their employees that takes care of printing newspapers using linotype machine which is what used to produce newspapers after editors wrote a draft then passed it down to linotypers. I will be one of few to say that, unfortunately the growth of blogs did caused the newspapers industry to dwindle and caused the newspaper industries to lay off unimaginable numbers of editorials and employees including the people who works with linotype machines which is the heart of the newspapers as they were what produced newspapers. They are basically printers for newspapers and linotype machines requires a lot of labor unlike these printers we have at home because once the editorials have made drafts then sends them to them and they would have to put letter blocks inside a square to print the wordings.

10-22-2016 Tidbits

Hey guys! How are you all doing, I hope that everything is going well over there and as for me I am doing well over here amid a bothersome health issue but I am going to try to not let that stop me from writing another tidbits. But how about that game between Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears two nights ago on Thursday night?! Of course some of you already know that I am a huge fan of Green Bay Packers, I have been a fan of Green Bay Packers at the age four in the year of 1991 which is somewhat irony because as some of you know that Brett Favre’s number was four when he was playing for Green Bay Packers after being traded to Green Bay Packers from Atlanta Falcons in the year of 1992 which is a year after I became a fan of the Green Bay Packers. I very much remember watching Don Majkowski who were Green Bay Packer’s starter quarterback at that time that I became a fan of the team Green Bay Packers, Don Majkowski had played as Packer’s starter quarterback from the years of 1989 to the year of 1992 when he was injured in the game against Cincinnati Bengals and he was replaced by the backup quarterback namely Brett Favre then that became a history from on at that time that we know as gunslinger Brett Favre. That is the birth of Brett Favre, which that is something that I cannot forget and in that year I was 5 years old, one year of being a Packers fan and the succession of Green Bay Packers team is credited to Brett Favre as at that time (Majkowski era) it wasn’t much of a good team so Brett Favre immediately turned the team into a Superbowl contender every years since then the day Don Majkowski was injured. What a teary story I know, especially if you are a fan of Green Bay Packers and thankfully we had a backup quarterback who were studying Brett Favre very closely to know what it needs to keep the team as a Super Bowl contender and you know who we are talking about; none other than Aaron Rodgers who gave us a super bowl win just in 3 years which is sooner than Brett Favre as it took Brett Favre 5 years to win us a Super Bowl.

Twitter Is For Sale, MySpace and Social Media

Twitter is one of my most favorite social media, probably just a little more than Facebook for some reasons and that I look at Twitter more of an intelligent system than Facebook is. Surely Facebook most of the things that people needs, private messaging, wall posting, commenting, pictures uploading, videos uploading, live videos, notes, applications (apps) such as games, groups, pages and many more while Twitter is very simple when it comes to features. Maybe I am just a simple person, I don’t know as I don’t like things too complexes and clusters; MySpace is the perfect example. Some of you may not know what MySpace is, some of you may know and remember what MySpace were. MySpace is a wholly different now than it was before, as a few years ago MySpace was the king of social media and MySpace is practically the forefather of the social media whether you accept it or deny it. However, Tom Anderson who was CEO of MySpace at that time decided to sell MySpace for several millions of dollars and sold it to by news corp company. That is when MySpace started rumblings to pieces, Facebook immediately dethroned MySpace within’ a few months after MySpace was sold and Facebook has become what we all knows today — The biggest social media of all. But ironically, MySpace was so popular at that time that it almost bought Facebook off Mark Zuckerberg and that would seal the fate of Facebook ever becoming what it is today while MySpace would still be sitting in the kingdom’s throne to this day. What revert the sale of Facebook to MySpace, were that Mark Zuckerberg was asking too much as he asked for 75 million dollars from MySpace although at the first MySpace had nearly bought it as it wasn’t priced at that high price but once Mark Zuckerberg realizes that MySpace were too excited in buying his Facebook so he decided to skyrocket the asking price to 75 million dollars and MySpace rejected the asking price.

Wal-Mart Today Pickup Sucks!

I had hard finding a TV shows DVD that was released on the 6th of this month, September which that was two days ago as when I sent my mother to Wal-Mart to get me the TV show DVD and she couldn’t find it anywhere at the Wal-Mart here even though on their website says they are in stocked. Even inside at the Wal-Mart, it said that it has three in stock and we had employees looking all over for the TV shows DVD for me but couldn’t find any which this was on the first day of the release and then the next day I sent my mother back there to see if there were any in stock but there weren’t so my mother asked one of their employee again then the employee had the supervisor to search for it to double-check that the employee didn’t miss anything. Of course the supervisor said that they couldn’t find it, they have said that even though it said it has three in stock but couldn’t find any and said that it could means that three of them were stolen. The TV shows DVD that I have been tirelessly searching for is The Flash Season two, I must have that TV shows DVD as it is my favorite comic’s character of all the time along with Green Arrow and Batman. Nonetheless after three attempts to try to get the TV shows DVD at Wal-Mart, I had no such luck but on the Wal-Mart website said that they has some in stock and that if I am to order The Flash season two online that I would pick it up on today which is their new feature along with shippingpass which is almost same as Amazon Primewhere you can get your item in two days at one fee every year. Since Wal-Mart online said that it has some in stock, after few failed attempts to get The Flash season 2 DVD so of course I decided that I immediately buy it as it said it is in stock and that I would be picking it up today within’ four hours. Excited about that. So when I ordered, it stated that my today pickup of The Flash season 2 DVD would be ready in no more than four hours so I timed it and wait for four hours to pass by so I could head over to the Wal-Mart here to pick up The Flash season 2 DVD for once of all. It said that I would be picking up at 7:47pm today on September 8th, so I was looking forward to that confirmation email because you must have a confirmation paper to let them know that it is you who ordered it and for them to give your item which is a common thing as a proof that you purchased it.

JoshiesWorld.com Accessibility

For a few days now I have searched for a way to make JoshiesWorld.com more accessible for the sighted people who is colored blind, need some contrast to be able to read the blog better and for the people who need the letters to be bigger so to make it easier for everybody to read. In few days of my research on how to figure a way to give some accessibility to sighted people, I came across that the important thing is having the ability to enlarge the letters, change the contrast which turns bright parts of the website into dark and grayscale for the people who is color blind. I want to make sure that I don’t leave anyone out, as for one that I am Hard of Hearing myself so I know how difficult it is to have access to certain things such as American Sign Language interpreters or Video Relay Service (VRS) so Deaf or Hard of Hearing and Blind have something in common. Nevertheless I added new features for JoshiesWorld.com that will, hopefully, helps some of you readers to have some accessibility for reading as you can zooms the writing into bigger words, turn the entire website’s colors to assist the color-blinded people and the grayscale as well. You can find the feature easily, by looking for the bar on the left side on here at JoshiesWorld where you will see three buttons and choose which option you need to help you to read JoshiesWorld’s articles better.

Happy 9th Birthday To JoshiesWorld!

Today marks the 9th anniversary since JoshiesWorld brand was born, back at that time I had intended that JoshiesWorld would be only just a small information website about me but I felt that it wasn’t fitting for the name of JoshiesWorld because hence it’s my world so I came up with an idea that I’d start a blog then from there I became a blogger/journalist. Joshie is a nickname of mine, adding the world is my world and the outcome of that is I share everything that’s going on in my eyes or my thoughts with you guys while writing some breaking news before they became the breaking news as I have written a couple or three breaking news from the year of 2007 to this day. JoshiesWorld was born on August 8th, 2007 and since then it have become my baby. Even though my name is involved but it is you all who helps it grows larger and larger daily so I thank you from the bottom of my heart for that as you guys have read each articles I have written on here. For some of these who don’t know, JoshiesWorld went crashing down back in 2010 after three years blogging and I decided that it was too much so I gave it a rest for a few months but then I decided for JoshiesWorld to come back stronger than ever so here it is since the year of late 2010 to 2016 running 24/7/365. I am proud of what I have accomplished, even though the accomplishments may be a little but better than none and these accomplishments cannot be done without you guys so again I thank you.
