Hollywood gallery

This morning I learned how to create a gallery of photos on this blog.

I created the page “HOLLYWOOD GALLERY” and placed there selected photos from the Media library.

Please take a look and let me know if everything works properly.

Thank you!

I am a history

I found out that many of the followers of this blog do not know how to find what they are interested in among almost 800 posts of the “Pursuit of Happiness”.

Actually, it is very simple if you know meaning of pages on the WordPress platform.

A header of each post includes a photo and a black field below it. On the black field there are words that express different topics (humor, travel, my writings, artists, etc.).

When you click on any topic a page appears. Sometimes there is an introduction to the topic. In all cases a page has links to all posts on this topic in the blog.

For example, if you click on words “My writings” on the black field on the header you will get exactly the same result as if you click on “MY WRITINGS” here.

You’ll get an introduction to my writings and links to many, many posts.

You will understand my words “I am a history” and will find life stories, fiction, humor and tragedies, book reviews and other interesting information.

Try it and I guarantee you compensation for your time if you are not satisfied!

Please don’t forget to let me know that you like my writings.

Best to you!

Quotes about intelligence

There are posts in many blogs that everyone must read again and again.

It would be good if WordPress allowed bloggers to reblog their posts SEVERAL times!

I have about 700 posts on this blog. It is impractical to place links to them on pages.

Some important posts I already reblogged.

Today I want to introduce to you “Quotes about intelligence”.

Please click HERE to read them.  I hope that you’ll find them interesting.

SO WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT?   by  JF

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT IT? by JF

 

To my friends!

Dear friends!

This blog started in October of 2013.

I never expected that blogging will bring so much joy to my life.

At 79-80 it’s not that easy to meet 3,000+ talented people of all ages from many countries and learn from them, enjoy their creativity, kindness and friendship.

I am glad to know you, to see your posts daily, to travel with you, to read your writings, to enjoy your photos, to suffer and to overcome with you.

Happy New Year to you and your loved ones!

I am very grateful to everybody who created and maintains WordPress.

Happy New Year to you and your families! You are builders of happiness!

In 2014 I learned more about blogging. In January I started to paint using PC paint program. In June I got my first digital camera and after more than 20 years’ interval started shooting what I liked.

I learned a little about painting and photo processing programs.

With your help I overcame my fear to write in English.

i even wrote several book reviews. You can read one of them HERE.

I liked “Shadow of the Raven” by a fellow blogger Millie Thom very much.

I hope that in 2015 I’ll be able to share with you new posts that you’ll like.

The very best to all my followers everywhere this year!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 38,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 14 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The smallest achievement

I am now in the process of looking for a good FREE painting and photo editing program that produces images acceptable by WordPress.

The major problem I have so far is that programs I found don’t have good tutorials. I would appreciate your help in this matter.

However, in the process of experimenting with one program I got an image that I liked. It is an UNIQUE image (I am unable to recreate it).

Still I got something beautiful and it’s an achievement.  

Before sharing this image with you I edited it on my PC with a program that is in it.

Please let me know if you like the image below.
