The New Year is almost upon us. It’s time to reflect and time to prepare for the upcoming year – 2014. What about you? What are you seeking to do, in the coming year?
You may have notice that I’ve taken a needed break. I needed time to work on some changes to Inspiration Point. What changes? Did you notice a new menu item? It’s located in the menubar and it’s called “Forum”. You’ll find two forums on that page. The second forum is named after the site and it’s open to guest posting.
I’m still working on the Shore Classified forum. There are some details that needs to be worked out. One issue pertains to private information that I don’t want seen by the public; as in the planet. Not on my watch! I’d love to get some input on these two forums.
Did you also see a menu called “Video”? What’s this item about? Some time ago, I tried my hand at creating a video blog. I’d sit in front of my webcam and just talk. I created a few videos; some impromptu and some planned.
After a few attempt, I checked to see how receptive viewers were. I’d say my videos were not too successful. I am not planning to dump YouTube; as it’s another way to draw people to Inspiration Point.
What kind of videos would encourage you to visit a blog site like mine? I’ve had a couple of friends suggest I’d use other people’s video. Obviously, I’d give appropriate credit. What about a new YouTube channel called “Inspiration Point”? What would be worth putting up on such a channel?
I do have another plan; however, this will have to wait. What about you? What’s your plans for 2014?
A couple of weeks ago, I was reading Frank Viola’s “Revise Us Again: Living from a Renewed Christian Script“. It’s a great way to get some insights about how our religious experiences shape our responses. While reading, I came across a very nice piece of encouragement. It’s one that I agree with and needed to reminder.
What is that reminder? It’s one that fits in with the title of this blog pot. Continue reading
Let the hunt, begin! What hunt am I talking about? It’s certainly not a hunt for deers; though there were plenty of it in Pennsylvania. I refer to the hunt for that great scenic photo. I’ve always had a fondness for scenic landscape pictures. This one reason that I’ve chosen the stock photo of Queenstown Mountain.
Free stock photo are a great way to create header image for a blog. However, I felt a need for a change and a photo of my own. This past weekend, I had the perfect opportunity to get a great scenic mountain photo. Let the hunt, begin! Continue reading
Today, I thought I’d take a crack at reviewing a movie. I chose the Peter Jackson film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey for two reasons. For one thing, I didn’t get to watch it, in theater. This review served as a good excuse to watch it.
Secondly,I love J.R.R Tolkien and his collection of great books.I’ve read the Hobbit, Lord of the Rings and the Silmarillion, as a kid and continued reading them, over the years.
As I’ve seen Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” film trilogy, I was expecting a good retelling of this old classic.
Guess what? Continue reading
First, I would like to offer an apology for the lack of new stories, for the past few months. I’ve been swamped with some important family business. My mom had a brain aneurysm, back in April. This lead to a stroke that seriously affected her left leg and arm and had an impact on her memory. Continue reading
