Hair Challenge # 5

17 May

Like I promised last week I tried “Fancy” a hairstyle from Jungle Barbies’ tutorial. I did it a little differently though. I’m learning that it is hard to duplicate another person’s hairstyle and that those can only serve as my inspiration. I had a hard time getting my rolls to look good, so I settle for the easier large roll to the side. I like my roll, but overall I like her hairstyle better.  I will not post a tip tonight, but will post it before Friday. Also sorry about my pictures, they are blurry and I didn’t have good lighting.

Hair Challenge #4

12 May


Today’s hair challenge was very easy. I used one of my normal hairstyles and did a little more to it.  My inspiration was the hairstyle in my slide show, but it doesn’t look anything like it. I was going for that hairstyle and thought I figured it out, but was unsuccessful.

I found a new loc tutor;  Jungle Barbie, the title of the blog, features  hairstyles,  fashion, and health information. I actually tried one of the hairstyles today, Jungle Barbie calls it fancy, but since my locs are so much thicker, I have to do it a little different.

It looks like an easy hairstyle, but  takes time. By next week, when I have a little more time, I will do it. Until then, here is a slideshow of my current hairstyle, tell me what you think.

Technical Problem Solved!

11 May

For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out how to change the number of post per page. I also didn’t know how to get to the help section so that I can search for it. It has been a whole academic semester and I’m just now seeing the help tab in the right corner of my dashboard. Still, frustrated that the search bar didn’t come up, I saw I had to click on general and then click search options. Finally, a search bar,because searching on all sites only lead to blogs that had tags of words I typed in the search bar.

Changing post per page was really simple, all I had to do was click on that settings tab at the bottom of my dashboard (I’m a genius I know) and general settings is the first page to pop up. And you know what else I found out, I have been on some freaking weird timezone. I just posted today and my blog was saying I did it tomorrow. I notice it on my stats page last week, but at that time I thought I was seeing things. So I change that too. So some of my post have the wrong date and I change this too, which is also in settings, in case you didn’t know.

Well, that’s my story and yes I am questioning if i really belong in college. I have had a difficult time with WordPress, slowly learning, but those two things were right there in my face. I never use tutorials, so that explains part of my problem.  I would recommend it if you are more familiar Blogger and decide to switch over.
