Yesterday, you found inspiration in one word and used it as a springboard for a post idea. Images — including photographs and works of art — can also act as starting points for stories, essays, poems, and personal musings. For this exercise, use one image as the creative spark for today’s post. You might use it as the setting for a story or poem, write about how it makes you feel, or describe a memory conjured by it.
“The gargantuan crystalline structure that towered three thousand feet above the lunar surface was both menacing and bewildering to behold”
Tall, dark and mysterious Standing by itself, all serious Staring at it, getting nervous Or maybe just a little delirious
The stone called the monolith Sounding totally apocalyptic With a background quite cryptic Its appearance utterly terrific
“Share each Friday, on your own blog, one photo…or maybe even a gallery of some of your favorite photos that you have taken during the week, that make you smile or that was a great photo capturing opportunity…anything really! And as photographers are often known to say, “The best camera is, the one that you have with you!”
“Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution” Ansel Adams

We know there’s been a lot to digest, so today is a free day! Use it to spend more time on something you didn’t quite grasp the first time around, to experiment with more headers and backgrounds, or to offer feedback and support to others.
Pro tip: If you want a place to play with colors and images without worrying about affecting your blog, create a free, private test blog where you can experiment to your heart’s content away from the public eye. Here’s how.
“A blog is neither a diary nor a journal. Many people think of blogging in relation to those two things, confessional or practical. It is neither but includes elements of both.” Lemn Sissay
Blogging 201, Day Five, Free Day
* Test blog: (https://dailypost.wordpress.com/2013/10/30/test-blogs/)
* Test drive themes and explore their options to find which you like best.
* Try different layouts — one sidebar, or two? A static home page? Custom menus? — and see what suits your content.
* Practice your WordPress.com skills. Insert a tiled gallery of images, or embed a few tweets. Play with post formats. Create a custom form, and tweak the fields. Get comfortable with the tools at your disposal.
* Give CSS a try. Hide a post’s metadata or change the padding around images without worrying that you’ll accidentally delete your header or turn your font purple.
This is an excellent and useful tool! Rather than accidentally mess up your live blog, I was able to fool around with “what could be”.
Summa sumarum: I will run my simulation on new ideas, code and what have you in the testbed from now on as I endeavour to improve my blog. But on that same note, and not to repeat myself once too often, I will keep my blog as is, at least for time being.

3 Day Quote Challenge, Day Three
Today’s quote is in honour of one of my favourite Drag Queens, Miss Latrice Royale. I loved her in RuPaul’s Drag Race and she continues to amaze me with her warm heart and perfection in each of her performances.
