Welcome to: Lifejustiz®
The Year–2013 ..and something new, as usual….
Good morning everyone, this is Jack. I just wanted to share this fact that I am changing my old theme to one that looks real nice and will serve me well in the future. One of the reasons I did this, is that I wanted to prepare the site for additional things I want to write about.
One of the biggest reasons I have been talking with a developer of the WordPress software that I use on this blog and found out that it wasn’t serving the purpose that I really thought I wanted to. He indicated that I was using too many different topics or categories on the blog.
But over the last two and half years I’ve been doing this, I am happy that I developed all the errors and successes I did on the theme I used. It was great experience, and one of the great things I love about blogging, is the learning experiences that we all have. So one of the big things I like, as you can tell, as I am a very simple man, and being a German, liking the approach to laying things out without clutter. So I touched on a theme that I think will serve me well in the future for focusing on a limited selection of topics to talk about.
He gave me the advice to pray about the most interesting topics I could think of. I think I have decided after looking over my old posts that spirituality and computer topics will be the new course of my action on my blog. If you have any suggestions that you might think I would be good at after reading all the stuff I put up there, please let me know with a comment below on this page. I will open the comments just for the purpose of explaining why I’m doing this. I would solicit your input on the comments block below to let me know what you think of the layout and from what he told me it doesn’t really matter.
So anyway, I will close at this point keep you posted as we develop down the road . This be a new experience for me as I develop a smaller topic audience on my blog.
Stay with me enjoy the ride. Contribute more if you agree with my determination of too much material scattered all over the place, which I suddenly realize I have done, but it was good practice and got life just is out some somewhat on the marketplace.
God bless you all, Jack G editor.
2012 Looks like it might be a very good year. I am getting the handle on some of the errors I made often in 2010 and 2011. Again it is the result of practice, investments of time and treasure, and mostly patience in learning the basics over and over again.
My confidence level is building and the quality of editing and handling basic problems are getting easier to rectify. My greatest downfall is the php and html programming knowledge. I never had an ounce of training during this development of Lifejustiz®. I will try to learn a rudimentary understanding of programming. I do get some things done by studying the construct of many of the plug-ins, as I install them I try to rummage around, touch nothing, and learn what the flow of things are. I will get some basic classroom training this fall.
I added a FORUM to integrate with Lifejustiz® and I must admit I am having more fun with that than I ever thought I would. I settled on the Simple Press plug-in because I knew that it being a Word Press co-ordinate piece it just had to work with my blog–which it does.
Editor Note: All forums removed as of 10/30/2012….

the Years 2011 & 2010
The State of My Blog is an interesting year (2011) of learning and frustrations. From learning that Permalinks should not be changed once used, to ignoring errors, page not founds (404), deleting posts by mistake, etc. etc.
The jargon about a “5 minute installation”, blah, blah…brings me to a smile. Not because it is not true, but the five minute install has turned into day to day maintenance issues only requiring, for me, about 15 hours at the minimum. Maybe 3-hours of maintenance and 12-hours of pure joy and learning pleasure.
Lifejustiz® is starting to draw readers from around the world. I have learned to make the blog reflect my own sense of neat and attractive presentations of my current interests. I still have not determined where I really have found my niche in content and category. That bothers me but at the same time is what probably keeps me going.
I have found that with eyes that are not as bright as they used to be, I am learning and enjoy the development of audio and not-yet used video podcasts, I feel those are the courses I might be pursuing in the very near term focus. Audio, was always a strong point—-from USMC to Now….I loved the use of that technology.
I am currently trying to figure out the following:
- When and how to delete old posts and pictures from my WordPress site, and remote Server
- How to correct programming errors to clean up my blog.
- How to improve or create a forum attached to my blog.
- Consider having a static Home Page with a Blog tab to always keep my interests available for readers and dialog with them about the subject matter.
So, if you have any comments or ideas to work on together, perhaps some of my expertise in audio, video, and other areas could inspire us to assist each other in becoming great communicators…jg
