February Writing

After not writing anything here for 2 months, I’m back. Or, rather, I want to be back. I feel constant shame about not updating this site often. So, I will try to post as much as I can in February. I have no idea how this will go, nor if I’ll be able to keep the regime. Let alone find interesting stuff to post. But let’s try and see how it goes.

By the way, I am really thinking of turning this site into a writing blog (of sorts). I don’t think I’ll ever share my writing, but I might as well focus the blog on it, with occasional posts about other subjects. (When I say writing, of course, it can be anything, from thoughts about writing to movie reviews).

I guess the blog needs some focus.

Speaking of writing (and reading), you may also find me on Goodreads: Jefflion

Jefflion.net Redesign

Finally, the moment you’ve been all waiting for (or not): Jefflion has a new layout and a new WordPress theme! It took me a while, but I’m finally here. Hope you like the new design and it will hopefully make me blog more.

It’s interesting to note that this is only the second layout in the website’s 5+ years history.  It’s obvious I don’t really like to change layouts/designs often, but the old one was outdated and with deprecated code, AND the WordPress theme didn’t have widgets and other fine stuff. So I figured it was a perfect time for change.

This is a work in progress. I still have some work to do, so please be patient. It’s possible to encounter errors, design elements overlapping, missing files, 404 pages and other problems. I’m working on it.

Also, there is still some serious work to do, namely:

Updating the pages (personal, goodies, domain, etc.) Most of them are horribly outdated and last touched years ago. I need to sort this out and make additional content.

Add credits (for icons, vectors, base code, etc.)

Responsive theme. At the moment, this WP theme is not responsive (meaning: it looks crap on tablets and mobile devices). I should work on it.

Fixing layout problems. I tested the theme in major browsers and it looks presentable (or semi-presentable) in most, but there are sure some issues I need to deal with.

Other stuff: fixing other minor problems.

But all in all, this is it and I am happy to present the new layout & WP theme. I do hope it will make me blog more often; the lack of updates are inexcusable!

Hope you like the new theme (and that it works for you. If not – drop me a line).

 

Subscribe to My Site

By a popular* request, I added a Subscribe/Follow page.

* – I use the term loosely

The button can be found in my sidebar, right below the “Sidebar (duh!)” text.

This way, yo can get a notification about new posts and other updates to this site. It’s a quick and easy way to follow this blog. I don’t post that often so you won’t have to check the site all the time and then give up in case I don’t post for ages.

Hopefully, this will prevent you from abandoning this site and forgetting about it altogether (I can only hope!)

Introducing: A new blog!

What to do when you want to post really random stuff? Join Tumblr. Seriously.

And that’s exactly what I did. See my page: Jefflion Randomness

I was completely unaware of Tumblr until a few days ago. Another bogging platform? No thanks.

But then again, I realized it is a handy little thing if you wish to post small, random things that simply do not fit into your main website. Random pictures, or short news you found somewhere. So I took it as a cross between regular blogging and Twitter.

The best thing about Tumblr is the fact you can reblog anything you like without much effort. Needless to say, I tried it and it’s useful for collecting interesting stuff all over the place.

I don’t really have a plan for that blog/website/account. All I want is to post quick, interesting and RANDOM stuff that don’t really fit in here- but are too “big” for Twitter. Sort of things that would fit my “Trash” section here- which brings me to question: what to do about it? Any ideas?

If you are a tumblr.com member, feel free to add me. Expect WTF content, stuff about archaeology and astronomy, animals, and posts about my favourite actors, musicians and movies.

News! News?

In short: No, I did not abandon my site. You may all relax. All three of you, my regular visitors!

I just turned around and it’s April 16th already! So, what’s up, you may ask? Not much (as usual). I got sick and I was feeling crappy. My throat hurt and I sounded like a 60 year old guy on crack (not my usual high pitch voice- yes, in case you didn’t know, my voice is like that, well, not all the time, but I can reach some reeally high notes, especially when talking to hamsters or other animals. Yes, I talk to animals. And no, I don’t expect them to talk back, not in human language at least. Stream of consciousness paragraph ends… Now).

I am feeling better now, but I still need a few days to get into shape. :)

Now, about the news.

I got a new hamster. Yes, that’s right, I have a hamster again! I wanted to buy a male, because they tend to be tame and bite less than females, but I got a female instead! Her name is Polina (as you might guess, she was supposed to be Pol, read as Paul), and she is long haired Syrian. She doesn’t bite, but she is still a bit scared of me. Oh well. At least she lets me hold her a bit. I didn’t know females can be that visibly longaired!

Once again, I am sorry for not posting that long. I don’t like when I don’t update often. I do have some ideas for posts, mainly rants about crappy movies (when you’re ill you get to watch many of them), but I just didn’t have time (or energy) to update. Hope you understand!

PS- It’s nice to notice Jefflion is getting more hits, even if I don’t update. “More” means “around 15″, but I don’t complain!

Here’s what my stats have to say about searches:

Top Searches: eddie vedder, how to know if a guy is a virgin, mira buva, how to tell if a guy really lost his virginity, download mask paint shop pro.

So yeah, Eddie still rulez (apparently), even after he transformed himself into Dude Lebowski.
