First off, I would like to thank everyone who stopped by, sending me emails or leaving comments, regarding my previous blog entry. I have to admit that it was difficult for me to write and post something like that in public1 because I never really felt comfortable writing and ranting about a specific person altogether, names or no names mentioned. But then, I had to do what needs to be done so I can finally be at peace and move on forward. It’s disheartening also that I’ve learned from you guys that I’m not alone with this, and I share the pain and frustration along with you. But, let’s all move on and look forward to better, more meaningful things, shall we?
I finally installed the CommentLuv plugin after several months of reminding myself to install it on the blog. A busy offline life can really suck the most out of your online life that you just start forgetting things, plus I have been slightly suffering from temporary short-term loss.2 Hopefully with CommentLuv, it would be a whole lot easier for me to visit everyone’s blogs, stop by, and say hello. I just wish that CommentLuv would also support blog entries coming from non-WordPress powered sites and not just with WordPress-powered sites only so that no one would have to feel left out, don’t you think? So yay, go Adri! ????
Lately, I have become a lot more active on my Instagram, posting a lot of art-related things. Before, it was just a standard Instagram account where I take photos of food, landscapes, scenery, and in some occasions, some selfies and some photos of other people. I never really looked at the number of followers that I get on Instagram, except that I know that only friends and those acquainted would be the only ones who would follow. When I started posting my art-related things and everything else similar, my followers increased. Now I have 100 (before I started my art shots, I only had about… 25 LOL). It’s not much of a big deal, but I really do appreciate the follow. ???? If you would like to do Instagram exchanges, please let me know yours so I can start following you guys too. ????
The thing with Instagram though is that I don’t use Instagram’s camera feature to take shots. I use LINE Camera, which I feel is a really good camera app to take quick but high quality shots.3 Not only that, you also get to have really cute features, like stickers, frames, and other types of customizations that would make all your mobile shots stand out from the rest. You can even get more stickers, frames, collages, and other graphics other than the default ones, both for free and paid. And because I’m such a nut with Japanese products, the LINE Camera has been created by the folks behind the LINE messenger, which we all know, is made in Japan. I have a LINE account but I rarely use it, but if you do have one, I’d like to connect with you too. ????
Speaking of LINE, you should also check out their other suite of apps too. LINE Camera also has B612 and Foodie companion camera apps. B612 is specifically for selfies and Foodie is specifically for food pics. I haven’t tried B612 yet4 but I have tried the Foodie app. I used the Foodie app on my Korean Beef Bowl photo in my Instagram. I really love the quality and clarity of its macro photography power. It’s truly amazing!
Well, this is a short entry. Happy Monday to everyone even though most of you have Mondays as your first day of work (or school if you’re attending summer school) for the week. I’m still stumped on this Ruby assignment and I’m falling behind because the next set of lessons will be available today, plus I’m still going through the struggles of what kind of art (zendoodle, zentangle, lettering, etc.) I should start working on. This is all because I’ve been feeling bleh for these past few days that now I’m getting stumped at creativity and learning. ????????
This is bad. ????
On the sidenote...
- and also that other mega-rant that I began writing that I decided to put it on “save draft” instead [↩]
- a sign of old age? I hope not. Maybe I’m just a natural ditz that still has yet to be unleashed. ???? [↩]
- have you seen some macro shots of some of the items in my Instagram? Like the water brushes in extreme close up? Yup, that’s the power of LINE Camera. [↩]
- since I’m not a huge fan of selfies anyway… [↩]
