Why reader's dont comment ?

Friday, August 11, 2006

Yesterday, i've this interesting articles over at the great SOB (Successful and Outstanding Blog[ers]). She bring up some very good points on why readers dont leave comments on your blog.

After i read it, it actually hit me right on some points :P

There's this point that she higlighted at #5

You rarely respond to comments. So, there’s no point in writing one.

Whoaa, what a direct shoot ! And after i considered it, it is true, that for some reasons, when i commented on other blogs, i like to have some respond from the owner of the blog, when i comment at some blogs, i realized that, the reason why i commented on his/her blog, is that he/she always reply to my comment !! This has never been occured to my mind ! It's so simple, yet so important, that i don't even realized it, until i read it !

Well, this could be quite a lesson for all of us, and for me in particular, forgive me for not replying on your comments :P we should all appreciate the comments ;) And lastly i'm so thankful to come across this great article ^^

Kudos to you Liz ! ^^

Making Ambigrams

Saturday, August 05, 2006

Lately about 2-3 days, I've been crazy about this ambigrams thing :P Well, honestly, i began the interest in ambigrams since i read Dan Brown's Angel and Demons, in his book, Mr. Brown put some very unique ambigrams words. The looks of the words, captivates my soul immediately ! WOW ! This is soooo amaaaziiing !! (Yeah, that's me at that time :P) Hm.. well but as always, it wasn't last long though :PAfter severals months later, i'm completely forgot bout that thing.

Just until a week ago, when i browse through the internet, i found this marvelous site, which is apparently the site of the one behind the art of ambigrams which appears in Dan Brown's books ! The person is Mr. John Langdon ;) you should visit his marvelous site ! It's a must ! Even just for a one stop by ;) Well, at his site, i found some tips and tricks that encourage me to learn and do my own ambigrams :P so, as the results of some lazy practicing (only when in good mood i practice the tips from Mr. John :P) i came up with these :D Hm.. maybe i'm gonna continue on practicing this ambigrams, maybe not :P but for now, this is my best shots :P And thus, i'm waitin' for some comments or critics or whatever bout my work :P hehehe ... thx a lot boyz and gurlz :D

24h to 12h

I recently got a hold of some pretty handy tricks to get around with the 12 hours system, the AM/PM, you see i'm not too comfortable in using the 12h systems, i always mistaken by the AM and PM thing :P maybe cause i lived in indonesia, and i'm not very fluent in speaking english, so this 12h sytems is rarely used by me, i prefer the military one, the 24h system.

Well, when i browsing by, i found this tips in order to convert easily and quickly ;)

Here is how to do it :

Take the 24 hour time. Substract with 10 and then take 2 off it. Simple ;)

13 — 3 - 2 = 1pm
14 — 4 - 2 = 2pm
15 — 5 - 2 = 3pm
16 — 6 - 2 = 4pm
17 — 7 - 2 = 5pm
18 — 8 - 2 = 6pm

See ;)

Well i know that it is the same as substracting by 12, so why bother substract with 10 first, and then 2 ? Hm.. well i think maybe because our mind will substract more quicker if we eliminate with 10 and then 2, anybody will not even THINK when you substract numbers with 2 right ? So if you substract with 12, i guess your brain do a little think :P Well it's up to you guyz though :P

p.s: i really really just knew this trick :P hehe.. so don't mock me ok :P peace ! ;)



Tuesday, August 01, 2006

There are times, when i looked into some pictures, logos, i fell in love with the font, but *alas* i know not the beauty's name !

Hm.. well not anymore ;) i found this *worth a try* tools online, it was named WTF?! :P yeah you read it right, WTF?! What The Font ?! ;), where you can upload the images, and you just have to click in order to see the result, it gives you multiple results of the fonts that are similar (if you don't find the exact one) but so far it gives you the best results (in my opinion) ;)

So why don't you try to search again some pictures that have the font you wanted to know eh ? ;)
