When All Else Fails … Write A Post

Mozilla Test Pilot

I started the day facing an awful challenge. I’m at the cutting edge of computer programing and have designed several websites now. All have been written line by line. Oh I grab a line of code here and a script there that I see floating around on the web, but for the most part, I’m on my own. No WYSIWYG editors for me (Believe it or not I have a hard time getting them to work).

My challenge is this …….. I’ve designed a killer “Contact Us” form and I want to carry the idea forward to other designs. The form is written for the most part in CSS 2.1. along with the XHTML and I’m finding out that what looks good in one browser looks awful in another. I’m not sure where I want to go from here.

I’ve taken to surfing around the web looking at the latest in entertainment gossip. What’s up with Charlie Sheen these days?

I’m facing an uphill battle and I really wish I could take a couple of days to recharge the batteries and come at this thing fresh. I have a feeling that I’m going to be looking at two or three days of compiling code to get it right. As soon as I’m done, I have a killer tabs categories problem to deal with.

More surfing …….. google Jef Raskin and Asa Raskin. Hummm ….. interesting!

I’ve got this nagging feeling that I’m headed for one of those really weird days. One filled with all the emotions that life has to offer. I’m finding it hard to concentrate. Reflection is even strange …….. I got it …….. I’ll write a post!

I understand that this post is really one for the personal journal and really has no viable content for “Learn How To Make Money Blogging”, but with one month to go before this Blog turns two years, I’m in a mood. I want this Blog to work for me. I’m over “Blogging To The Bank” and killing myself working for the Blog.

I can remember that I read a Duncan Riley quote over at Technorati that stated: “Have patience. There is no such thing as get rich quick. You get to two years, that’s when you’ll know if you’re going to be great or not.” Indeed …… I may not be destined for greatness but as I approach my second year Blogging, I have a better understanding of what I want out of Blogging.


  1. It sounds like a lot of fun. You are way ahead of me when it comes to CSS and coding. I wish you the best and keep in touch!

      Hi Jay,
      I finally worked my way through the contact form. It’s programed in 5 different languages. XHTML, CSS, PHP, PERAL and JAVA, with a few Internet Explorer hacks thrown-in for good measure.

      Now I’m wondering what-else it is that I can do instead of suffer at work by doing some more mindless surfing for the latest gossip news ………… of which I have absolutely no interest, it just helps me take my mind off work.

      I’ve got a killer “Hover Box” issue on the same site. The side Images want to tuck-up under a bottom line of images when hover is engaged in Internet Explorer.

      Thanks for checking in Jay ………. I’ll see you soon!

    LOL – you really are a tech geek aren’t you. Awesome, I need one of them.

      Hi Alex,
      Let me know what you need. I’m just an E-Mail away. After all, I am “Yoda Of WordPress”.

      Hey, I saw your new video. Very good! It is always an experience to see and hear people on video after following their writings.

    Blogging is after all, a art, like poetry – theatre – movies – writter – compositor, all-in-one in my opinion. When you feel sad or depressed, tired, etc. I strongly suggest you writing on your blog or working, it is much easier to make your negative thoughts become positive thoughts and make yourself happy, after all it’s everything about conception. Keep up the good work!

    Best regards,

    Hi Maria, thanks for stopping by. Writing is a tricky business. Since starting this Blog in March of 2009, it has been a tough challenge building a following. I’ve tried to stay on point and restrain the emotions of self. I’ll have to admit to a certain disappointment in the development of events. To write about them, may provide a degree of satisfaction, I’m not so sure that it is the most prudent of efforts.

    It can be difficult for your readers to follow your train of thought without having person to person contact and weighing all of the senses involved. I continuing dialogue is also missing. Instead of providing educational thought, you wind up sound like a Malcontent.

  5. Hey! Blogging is just like any other method of expressing your ideas, the difference is just that it adds plenty of more options. And expressing yourself is indeed a good way to relieve your anxiety or get rid off your frustration. So, when all ain’t well, pen down to your blog.
