Pohang trip..

Saturday morning, early.

I stayed up late working on Website changes--did you notice? :)--however, there's still so much to learn about html writing/tinkering, and I'm not yet satisfied.

It's funny~ I've read in so many other blogs how people, foreign teachers, spend alot of time (probably more so than posting about their teaching or day to day experiences) playing with their website format, editing html, and the ever-popular constantly "editing-saving-publishing" your template phenomenon. Amazing~ I'm exactly in the same boat; frankly because I spend alot of time learning about writing webpages...when I should really be writing more about what my life is like in the land of the morning calm (or, as some may say because of 'blog-readership', "Welcome to the Marmot's Hole!!")

In any event, I'm still a bit delerious from staying up until nearly 4:45 because of my blogging sickness (just joking!).. that, and preparing to move my bones to take my Korean language class at the YMCA in downtown Daegu. This will be my 3rd class--and I'm excited. I've already learned so much~~well, let's just say, a bit beyond my own Korean self-studies.

Today I'll head out to Pohang with one of my Korean friends, Myunghee, and her 9 year old son. This should be fun~ I've heard alot about the place. Unfortunately, my camera batter needs charging, and wonderful me forgot to plug it in~ so alas, I'll be pictureless. But the ride's cheap to get there, and Seungbo supposedly grew up there... so there'll be another chance for picture taking. Less of course, I decide to splurge a bit and buy the mini Nikon camera I have my eyes on~ it would travel so much better than my MONOLITH Mavica cd-writer. Hehe. We'll see. The camera I want costs roughly $400 USD. So I may have to wait a bit on that.

Anyhow~ wish me luck! I'll be back Sunday with updates. Have a good weekend everybody!!

I guess people do play a lot with the template isn't it? There's just so many things you can do with it! But is it bad to keep changing layouts and stuff, which some people do... I wonder?

Just found out about Metatags and how it can affect your 'readership'. Not exactly fascinated reading about it, but it did make me go: "Wow... really??"

Have fun in Pohang ;)

I agree.. I think it's fun to tinker and make changes~but, the wait to refresh. Ahhh, it gets annoying! I think the problem with making too many changes too often is you may not get a good turn out on readership.. which brings me to the point, how DO metatags affect readership? Fill me in on this good piece of info ;)

Sure did have fun.. check my update!

I like the new changes... except for the white text on your header that makes my eyes bleed when I try and read it. Did you Photoshop that or does your template do it for you? The picture is wicked!

I think the most annoying thing has to be photo uploads... having to select each photo in batches of five. I'm sure they do this to deter us from using up too much space on their servers... Bastards!

Unfortunately Chelsea, probably know as much as you do. Here's the link to the article I was reading though: 'CLICK HERE'.

Comatose: Yes, I'll check out the font and try to change it. The color looked good with the last picture, but I just recently changed it.. spanks for the info!
Oh, and the photos~ HoReNdOuS! Uploading only 5 on Flicker OR here at Blogspot on one time.. I think it might have to do with bandwidth, too, eh?

Kurios: You think?, flags, or tags. Lol. I'll check it out. Thanks!! ;)

You know, playing with the template can be addictive. I think I've gone through at least 20 with four different blogging engines. Almost as much fun as writing posts.
