State of the Nina address

You can stop blinking now, this really *is* JustWandering.org 😉

I got bored with my previous theme and wasn’t really happy with it anymore, so here’s a fresh new one to match my mood. Today’s my last day as a 26 year old, so I guess it’s fitting to make the necessary upgrades today, no?

Just Wandering’s latest theme is based on ShinRa House‘s Breaking News, modified to fit my advertisement blogging needs. I wanted lighter colors this time, hence the blue and green. I like to think that it shows the color of the sky, the sea and the earth. My friend however, said it reminded her of Boracay’s shores with its green seaweeds and blue sea -_-

A month after WordPress 2.3.1 was released, I finally upgraded. I was hoping that by now, the plugins I used to have that weren’t compatible with the latest version would be upgraded as well. So far, so good, except for the SEO Title Tags plugin that keeps on giving me database error messages gah

This layout has been tested on Opera and Firefox, my two main browsers. It also works fine with Internet Explorer 7, but it’s being uncooperative and doesn’t align images and text properly.

Before I forget, I’ve installed a new plugin, WP-Polls. My first poll: Do you already have travel plans for 2008? I know I do 😉 If not, maybe this will help: Cebu Pacific is having another Piso promo, starting November 28 (tomorrow) until December 2, for travel in January – March 2008. You know where I’ll be first thing tomorrow 😉

    Nina! Question~ On the Cebu Pacific flights… are the flights to Singapore piso as well? *w* Or is this local only?

    Voted!

    Your layout looks great, Nina. =P

    Geez, it’s so frustrating that I can’t trust myself to buy plane tickets way in advance. uuurrgghh. Maybe short-term travel planning is for me. -_-

    Khursten: Sadly, it’s only for local flight 🙁

    Anna: Nyahahahaha, buy! Buy! Cebu Pac don’t want to take my credit card T_T Damnit, I think I have to call HSBC

    Haha, onga eh, wala pang 24 hours nasira ko na blog ko XD But I think umaayos naman na siya.

    Again, thanks for the greetings! 😀 Btw, do you have plans for February 2008? A contact and I are looking for people to join our Donsol whale watching trip 😀

    I like the new layout, the “readability” is enhanced considerably.

    But… I totally loved the old “rotating” header with the changing photos. Is there any way to work that into this layout?

    I have several “blogging” questions I might email you with at some point, if you don’t mind.

    Happy B-day again, one year closer to crotchety old age, yay for you! And yeah, I voted in the poll, and it almost broke my heart to face reality as I did so!

    P.S. — I appreciate you thinning out the “pings.”

    David: Thanks for the greetings! The spammy pingbacks were starting to get annoying so I just removed all of them. It was fine at first (when there were only 1 or 2) but it was getting out of hand lately.

    The “rotating” banner is replaced by the flickr bar on the right sidebar. Not as dynamic or dramatic as the previous one, I must admit. But when I don’t need Google money anymore, maybe I’ll put the big ones back 😉
