7-24-2017 Snippets

I know that I haven’t written an article for about twenty-four days and I am very sorry about that. Not entirely my fault though, I had planned on to blog last week but then my new gaming computer broke saying that it couldn’t detect any bootable to boot and for some reason there was a defective in my SSD drive so I had to ship the computer to one of the company’s repair shop to have it repaired. This wasn’t the first time that my new computer, since I had got it for Christmas by my mother, messed up because few months ago in May I believe it messed up because there were some pins where the processor card lays at were bent and had to send it off for a repair but ends up getting a replacement with better processor card along with better cooling system for the computer so it’s some free upgrades which I was happy with that. After they shipped the replacement one, I had only used it for a bit over two months and then it messed up because the SSD (solid-slated drive) were defected as I was notified that there was an update for Windows 10 so I had it updated then it brought a screen says something about not finding bootable or whatever it’s called with error code saying 3F0. So, I then called in for a repair and had to ship the computer to them a week and half ago for them to have the computer repaired. Didn’t take them long to repair the computer, thankfully as they had it repaired and shipped the computer back to me within’ a little over a week. While my computer was shipped for the repair, I decided to hook up my old computer that I was using before this new computer and I was notified that there was a Windows 10 update so I had it updated but then it did the same thing for my old computer. After the update, it brought the error saying that something about being unable to boot and that there may be something wrong with the hard drive so I decided to just use my MacBook Pro that I got last year until I get the new computer back. My bad luck didn’t stop there, a couple of days later after I had the computer shipped to be repaired for once I was in mood to write something for the blog and I ended up discovered that the hosting company that I use decided to migrate all my websites to one of their new server.

Not M.I.A. And Passion in Blogging

I know I haven’t made a blog post anywhere for about two weeks now, I barely have any time to do so and I have dealt with some of the things outside the internet which I prefer to not share what it is. I have struggled to find some time to write a blog post, I realize that trying to write a blog post on schedule is an issue for me and it is stressing so after having some thought today about what I should do about that. I have utmost passion in blogging, I became blogger in the year of 2004 to be exact although I did blog back in 1999 I believe on a free websites service which I cannot remember the name of the service but I think it was web.com or similar name as that when I gave blogging a try and wrote the first blog post to share my feelings for that girl I was with at that time which is a bit corny now that I looks back to that day but I only wrote one blog post then forget about it until the year of 2004 I invested more of my time into it and become a guest blogger from there. Fast-forward to the year of 2007 when I acquired JoshiesWorld.com, setting it up as a blogging brand and rolled with it since then so in August coming will be 10th anniversary for JoshiesWorld. I have written more than a thousand blog posts since, not just on JoshiesWorld but also as a guest blogger for others until they decided that they no longer want to run a blog and shut it down so luckily, I had JoshiesWorld to fall back on. This was in the year 2011 or 2012, I can’t remember which one but I am very thankful for the opportunity that I had at that time because it gave me an idea of what I want to do and that is to blog or to be an editorial or columnist for a local news and whatnot.

Why I Blog

I see a lot of the people starts off with a trend of Why I _____ and I figured that I will do one for blog. People have already started a few trends of “Why I” such as “WhyIVlog”, “WhyISign” and others. To my knowledge, I may be wrong and if I am wrong then please correct me by leaving a comment below here so I can make a correction note on here. That the “Why I” was originally started by the Deaf community with #WhyISign where anyone who knows American Sign Language and breath in American Sign Language to make a short videos to share why they sign. You can find #WhyISign on Twitter and Facebook if you are interested in see some responses from the people who shares their reason to why they use American Sign Language. So I am going to do one for the blog and this is #WhyIBlog! Hope that all of you enjoy reading some of my reasons to why I blog and I encourage that all of you bloggers to do the same by making a post on your blog with the title “Why I Blog” then use the hashtag on social media #WhyIBlog so that all of bloggers can read some responses from the blogosphere via social media like Twitter or Facebook.

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.

Vacation in Tennessee and Rod Run

As some of you know that we decided to take a vacation in Tennessee as I wrote a post a few days ago under the title “Just Got Back and Blogging” where I said that I have just got back home from Tennessee after spending three nights there and that I would be put blogging aside because while I was in Tennessee on vacation, I decided to record a video of the most times that I have been there so that all of you guys could feel as if you were there with me as well. Where I records a lot of videos down there in Tennessee, ranging from Pigeon Forge to Gatlinburg and I recorded a lot of videos. Several hours of many videos, of course that means that they need to be edited because you would need to edit several videos to make one video and at the same time trying to trim off some unnecessary parts in these videos because it would be pointless to show some parts where it was just laying on a table facing a wall. When you record several videos, several hours of videos then you would need to try to figure which parts is necessary and which parts is not necessary so to trim off the hours for a video because no one is going to watch a 10 hours of video. I have recorded over a hundred video clips, over seven hours so it took me a week to edit out some unnecessary parts and then connect these over hundred videos into one video but that didn’t stop there because once I did it was more than five hours so I had changed duration of some video clips by fast-forwarding them then trying to double-check what I think isn’t REALLY necessary. Obviously you sees me blogging now, you know what that means? The video is finished, it is ready to be watched and I am ready to blog again!

Just Got Back And Blogging

Hey guys! I am sure that some of you noticed that I haven’t blogged for a few days, so to let you know that I couldn’t find any time to blog at all because we were in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg in Tennessee for a short vacation while at the same time visiting my mother’s cousin in the hospital as she was put in ICU due to severe pneumonia when she and her family were vacationing in Tennessee too a few weeks ago. Thankfully she is now stable, she has been transferred from the hospital in Sevierville, TN to her home in Columbus, Ohio and is doing well. I could not find any time to blog, whatsoever and I have wanted to blog as I have tried hard to find a time to blog but every time I thought I could find a time to do so then stuff quickly gets in the way every time I found a time to do so. But good news is that I am back home, I have recorded a bunch of videos for the Rod Run Grand in Pigeon Forge and some Gatlinburg in Tennessee but bad news is that I probably won’t be able to find any time to blog for a few days even though I am back home now but the reason that I won’t be able to is because I have so many videos with several hours between them to edit. There are so many videos that I will be editing so it is going to be exhausting but thankfully I am known for my stubbornness and I am going to use that as my advantage. However by doing so I will have to put blogging aside just for a few days so that I can try to finish editing the entire video and have it ready for viewing within’ a week on here so all of you can watch my trip in Tennessee!
