    Thanks for stopping by!

    I’ve seen a lot of blogs with CommentLuv and it seems like a really useful feature to have on your blog! I use LINE camera too, although not very often. The stickers are really cute. And actually, LINE is made by Naver Corporation, which is a South Korean company! LINE is one of the their subsidiaries in Japan.

      Oh, I know about LINE being a subsidiary of Naver, but it’s not Naver (main headquarters in S. Korea) who created the LINE app, but the subsidiary in Japan who created it (thus “made in Japan”). It was also first launched in Japan also back in 2010 (or was it 2011?) before it reached out to other countries (including S. Korea). But either way, it’s a really awesome camera app (and it’s not just because of the stickers LOL). The macro shot capabilities are just amazing. :D

      The only thing I don’t like about CommentLuv is that it only captures blog entries from blogs powered by WordPress. It’d be nice to see blog entries from other blogs that are powered by Blogger, Tumblr, and other blogging platforms too. :)

        I hadn’t known that! That’s pretty interesting. There was an article that I read that compared different messaging apps and which ones were more popular per country.

        And that’s unfortunate. It would be more useful if it captured blog entries from blogs powered other than WordPress, although that sounds a lot more complicated, haha.

          Hi Rezina! Was it this one? https://www.similarweb.com/blog/worldwide-messaging-apps – according to this, LINE is the most popular messaging app in Japan. I use LINE (sometimes), Facebook Messenger (most of the time), and Viber (to talk to relatives in the Philippines – also the #1 app in the Philippines too LOL). I’m surprised that Skype isn’t even on that list, and I use Skype also. Huh.

          I know this is easier said than done, but I think the developers at CommentLuv should just add some tweaking to the code where they can capture links from non-WordPress blogs, but like you said, easier said than done. Or maybe have some really kind developer who could create a separate plugin, like an extension to the CommentLuv WP plugin. Just a few ideas throwing in. :)

    Try to focus on what you need to do and what you enjoy. It’s not easy, but it’ll get better over time.

    CommentLuv is great! I have it installed as a thank you to people who leave comments. I hope it’s working and they’re getting traffic back! At the very least, I return their comments when I can.

    I love VSCO for Instagram! I hardly use the built-in filters anymore because other apps give me better control. I also use LINE Camera for the cute stickers. XD

      For some reason, and maybe it’s because of the commenters or there’s a bug, there are some (like Rezina’s blog, for example) who isn’t capturing their latest entries and showing up here, but I do what I can to stop by and visit. :)

      I downloaded VSCO before but I never really tried it. I heard it’s a pretty good app, but I’m quite happy with LINE Camera for the other features, not just the stickers LOL. ^_^

    Maybe I’m just old-fashioned in terms of blogging, but I really don’t see the purpose of the CommentLuv plugin at all ^^;; I mean, I can see the benefits, but when I already subscribe to various blogs on Feedly, CommentLuv doesn’t really do anything for me. But I’m glad you’re finding it useful and have finally got it up :)

    Instagram and I have a up and down relationship. Some days I’ll be posting on it, but then I’ll go weeks without posting anything . . . I just stick to using the camera on my phone and use the Instagram or VSCO filters. My phone’s pretty old now, so I don’t think it can handle a lot of the newer apps. I know some apps aren’t even compatible with my phone!

      All I could say is, that’s why we’ve got various options on reading other people’s blogs easier, like Feedly, CommentLuv, and some other RSS feeds. Ah, the freedom of choices hehe. :D

      Before, I was also kinda absent with Instagram, mainly because I just didn’t have time to take photos anymore. I would love to get back into photography again, my micro 4/3rds camera has been kept in my camera bag for how many months now because I haven’t gotten out there to take shots. Sometimes, even with my phone, I haven’t been taking shots except for food shots, occasional landscape/location shots, and among all these. My inspiration for art brought my passion back for (mobile) photography and my Instagram has been blowing up lately hehe. I guess we all need some kind of trigger to get back into some things again. :)

      For my shots, the only time I would use filters is when my shots were either too light or too dark, too blurry, or too grainy, but nothing more than that. I used to decorate all my Instagram shots with a frame and other stickers via LINE Camera, but lately I discovered LINE Camera’s macro shot capabilities, and I have been taking a lot more “extreme close-up” shots as of late. I couldn’t do tht with the Instagram camera feature and my phone’s camera features are too advanced and complicated to me (I own an HTC One M8 Android phone, which is like 3-4 years old but surprisingly still compatible with the latest Android Marshmallow). I’m thinking about re-downloading VSCO again, but I’ve been really happy with the LINE Camera (and its companion app, the Foodie camera app) thus far. ^^

    I used to use LINE but didn’t have much use for the features, they are super cute though :D Thanks for reminding me I need to use CommentLuv, I keep seeing it everywhere and love how it creates more of a community!

      It’s not much of a “need,” it’s all subjective, but it’s always a good thing to try things out, and when you find that something useful, use it. :) Despite the busy (real life) schedule, I do what I can to squeeze in some time to visit everyone. It may not be on the same day the entry was posted, I may be late, but more importantly, I’m there reading and responding. :)

    Thank you for your comment – and don’t worry, you posted on the right entry. ;)

    In the end I got a $620 H-P laptop with PowerDVD Ultra 14 to watch my movies – an All in One took too much space on the desk…plus I’m a laptop girl, I’ve been using mainly laptops for the last like 7-8 years. xD
    I currently have like 3 working laptops and 1 half-working one: I got my MacBook Pro, an old 2012 fuchsia Windows 7 Sony VAIO, the old H-P I mention in the entry (which I’ll most likely discard after I’m done with the premades) and the new Windows 10 laptop….yeah, I know it’s weird, but I’m a sucker for new computers; I love the first booting up, seeing the p.c. be filled and customized with my favorite programs, the velocity a brand new machine has when it performs a task, etc….I just plain adore computers. :D

      Oh dang, I posted twice on your entry. I have short term memory issues sometimes, so I apologize for annoying you LOL.

      That’s great that you’re able to purchase an HP laptop. But dang, I’m still dying for a Mac (for possible new job opportunities hahaha), but dang girl, so many computers! Before, I used to have my computers custom-made because my brother actually knows how to build computers (he’s an electrical engineer, so yeah, it’s part of his job), but he doesn’t live near me anymore so I’m all alone to fend for myself on that department LOL.

      Welcome back to the interwebs, lady! ^_^

    I used to use Instagram a lot more then I do now. I guess I’m just not into taking pictures as much as I used to. I’m still very much active on Instagram.

    The only camera app I use is my phone’s camera. I do use Camera360 for filters only. It has some really cool filters that my phone’s camera doesn’t have. I really need to upgrade my phone as well. What would you recommend? Right now, I have an Samsung Galaxy S3.

      My phone is old too (HTC One M8, the latest model is the M10 LOL), but I’m amazed that this old model can support the latest Android version (Marshmallow). In fact, I choose my phones based on their camera features. Carrying my micro 4/3ds camera is a hassle, so I count on the camera phone with its features. Unfortunately, the M8 camera features are pretty complicated, and I love taking macro shots LOL.

      I’m currently on a family plan with my brother and Dad and I’m still undecided whether I should upgrade my phone or not because the M8 is still working really well even though it’s a little slow now and the battery gets drained really fast. I heard that the latest Samsung Galaxy model (the S7 I think?) is really good, so maybe stick to the same model? ^^
