Happy 2nd birthday HC&B!

AnniversaryI’ve never memorized the date before so you can imagine my surprise after seeing that trophy icon. What now? Have I surpassed my previous record of insanity, of awesomeness, of laziness? In any case WP couldn’t have known their full extent but with much pleasure I’d like to say that today the 20th of November 2013, I’ve been blogging here for exactly two freaking years!

In these couple of years, my life has changed irrevocably. Mine eyes were pried open the the versatility, the ambiguity and the variety of words, of people and content. I’ve been encouraged to write more, to read more, to think more. More so than I couldn’t have otherwise in my old limited line of sight. Knowing how to navigate the internet and knowing where to look are two very separate things in my mind. The WordPress community has been that place for me, that where I can always come to search and learn and become inspired and it – therefore all of you my fellow WP bloggers – has made a great difference in my life.

So I’d like to say thanks to WP for making this platform possible and to the diverse dissidents that live on it 🙂

Another Update

Okay folks, I got rid of the unnecessary and also added a new page titled “Blogs I recommend” that includes the blogs of the buttons I already have on the sidebar but in addition I wrote a little on each. You see that picture of the books on the left? It’s also on the sidebar, click on it and it’ll take you straight to the new page.

Originally I thought I’d remove the buttons after making the page but then not everyone will click on the books to check the page, they’d sooner click on the buttons so that why I left them there, but I arranged them from small to large. It’s much better now.

As I go about blogging and interacting with others I’m bound to find more blogs that would come across very interesting so I will be continuously updating the page. Actually I have a couple more blogs I just remembered I have to add to the current list. So check back often.

What do you think?

The Hot Chocolate and Books button

Hi all!

I’ve finally gotten around making a button for this blog, though it nothing much and I don’t really know how to make a proper button as yet (I’ll find out eventually)

All you have to do is:

  1. back click on this picture and select Copy Link Location and
  2. using an Image widget, paste it into the Image URL field
  3. and finally linking this blogs URL https://hotchocolateandbooks.wordpress.com (paste it into the Link URL field)
