June update log

Time for a June update, as usual. I will list the things I did, done, or planned to do for June but they will have their section with details and such. I think having them as a list is boring.

Things I will be talking about soon or later.

WordPress, blog posts, and posts are ready to queue up. Discord, server updates, and changes. Fan game progress and showcasing. Twitch, and YouTube streaming. And other things.

Editor note: This post was made last month and most of the stuff here was changed or removed.

Things I got planned to do

Discord

Server changes

I will be getting rid of the Inactive member role cause too much work to manage members.

If I make extra changes to some things.

  1. People can join and leave whenever they like. And welcome to rejoin if you were not causing issues. You can come back anytime.
  2. If a said person leaves the server not due to being compromised.
  3. Rare roles, Tatsu server points, and score, and anything else, may or will be lost and must be earned next time.
  4. Access to private channels may be lost since discord removes you if you leave a discord server.

Oops updates

Ah, time to post again, and oh boy. A lot of what has happened and this will be a blog post and probably will be the last time that my friend has to proofread my posts to make sure they are safe to post so no one will be mad, and while that was nice having someone level headed clear my posts to be green to post.

Almost time to move out

With all the crazy stuff happening, our time in our old place is almost. We are moving out on May 31, 2022, because our landlord is a butt but the new place is a lot better and looks nicer than our current area

I have 9 boxes ready and got a few more to do and once my things are packed up, I can work and clean up in the other rooms and pack up stuff for the movers to get, and this move will be unlike Texas since the move will be a few hours and not a few days.

Movers show up on May 28, 2022, and we leave on the 31st of May but we want to be out before that date. Mini update: The movers are coming on May 27, 2022

The last trash day is coming up since the landlord wants nothing here or outside, it is going to be a rough week.

I made a blog post talking about moving again and whatnot. This is more of an update and extra news. https://onychaos.wordpress.com/2022/04/30/life-update/

Life update

So it seems we are moving again and not by choice. Our landlord is big baby mad that we won’t renew the lease for this place we are staying at this moment. I have a simple update to relay and whatnot.

Given that it is a new year and our lease on this place ends on May 31st. Our family was looking for a better place to stay in. So my mother does not want to renew the lease in case we found a new place and decide on something else once we find it and that has upset him so he is forcing home inspections and forcing us out. There is no option to renew here, he wants us gone.

The lease that he gave to renew has gone up in price and wanted more for staying in this house, and the place was already in bad shape and with him being the way he is as a landlord. That’s a yikes, but on a good note. We got a new place to stay in but this means we will have to start getting ready to pack up and repack stuff again sooner than later.

The point is, the landlord is petty, we are moving out around the end of May and see how things turn out for me and my family, and hope the next area is better. Sucks this again had to happen sooner instead of later but what can you do.

That’s all I wanted to write for this blog post and have something of a mini update on my blog.

Tumblr or WordPress?

It has been a while since I talked about Tumblr. And then I talked about Tumblr on a serious note was the post NSFW ban on Tumblr and link ban which hid blog posts, and after going back to Tumblr, I see they fixed their site. The search engine for Tumblr seems to show all. Even tags seem to be working right, but I can’t be completely sure.

And which all these changes, and given that Tumblr is a part of the WordPress family now, I have a new option for blogging. There is one thing I can’t be sure about, and that is the content you can post there.

Some of my content here, I do walk on thin ice and will mostly set off a content flag for banned content, even though, I censored it to death. But so far, I have been lucky. I don’t know if what applies to WordPress can be used on Tumblr, given they have different rules.

So, why am I talking about Tumblr today? I am thinking of making Tumblr my main blogging platform. Keyword: “thinking” WordPress is still a good site to use, And it has done a lot for me as a free user. But WordPress feels much more professional, which is not a bad thing. But I feel the content I post here is not a good fit. My target audience, I wanna say is not on WordPress, and if they are, they are so far buried under bots, spam posts, tags.

TumblrWordPress
Easy to use
Personal Blog
free to customize your blog theme at will
There is an audience for anyone there.
No ads on blogs
Infinite space for photos
You can upload videos
SEO may be better now?
Add in third-party widgets (Addthis, etc…) A lot of fandoms
Ask widget
Easy to use
Personal Blog
Making blog posts is easy
A lot of good features Good SEO?
Infinite space for photos by making new sites.
Fandoms are here too. (None of the ones I’m into yet.)
Spam filter
some good themes for free users

These are pros I think about for Tumblr or WordPress. And Tumblr is not perfect, by any means. It still has porn bots that like to like posts or follow you. And every social media has bots. Look at WordPress. I still get bot followers, and in some tags, bots spam or copy and repost the same post to fill up a blog tag.

I guess what I wanted to do is talk about Tumblr. I will move back to Tumblr to see how things are, and how much has changed and do a simple test of posting to both blogging sites and see what happens. If Tumblr is better now in terms of blogging and blog tagging working right, I will probably move there. And making my WordPress blog a second backup blog.

December update log

Time to make a “fun” blog post, which is an update log at the end of the day. Let’s get going. Take this with a grain of salt.

Twitter

Ah, the land of the dead, the place I came back to because I had made a dummy account but went back to my old account because I felt guilty about doing that. And it’s more or less the same but now with ghosting? It’s whatever. If there is someone I want to remove from my account, I will just block them.

There are not many people to speak with on Twitter, and even post covid. People have stopped using Twitter or rather moved on. It’s almost funny, those same people (Who I won’t name) who I held to such a high standard don’t even say a word to me now.

So have I been doing / or what’s been happening on Twitter?

  1. Been talking to Xjazzy and Pippi
  2. been posting update posts on my fan game
  3. thinking of soft blocking accounts that are just not active.
  4. Posting updates and blog posts
  5. thinking of muting some users.
  6. Got a direct message from someone asking me a personal thing.
  7. I Learned Twitter got a new CEO and I feel this may bring in a new round of bans.

Facebook

Now that I have no reason to use Facebook as much anymore and post covid 2020 things that happened and given that I don’t talk to anyone there, I thought about wiping the account and just making a new account and just following some people.

Not much here to say, to be honest. I will see what I will do. At the most, I will change my Facebook profile.

November and December log

Ah, yes. It’s time to make some changes that will be better for me. I have to put myself first and learn to say no. And some people or a person won’t like this, but oh well. This is an update log of stuff I want to do/plan to do and whatnot.

Things I want to do

Update on games I’m making.

Sonicvania + boss rush update

So, the boss rush fan game is still going to be updated. I have gone ahead and started on a SonicVania standalone game mode within the boss rush fan game, and how that can be unlocked will be a secret

The basic core engine for SonicVania is 5 % done. I think once I get 30% done, I will release it with an update. And on that note, I’m gonna work on the next boss as that is the holdup for the update and I need to add a cut scene. There is a lot of work that needs to be done. The second boss is the death egg robot, and I need to make an effect if a player tries to get behind the boss.

Controller Support is gonna be fun for main content and bonus content. You can still use a keyboard.

Update log

I wanted to make an update log. And for where I have been and what I am doing. I know it has already been a month since my last blog post, and a lot of stuff has happened/is still happening, and I should get to it. I got a lot of things I want to do or get done.

Things in my life

  • My desk is not up, and unable to use it.
  • 1 – I am supposed to have it up, but no word yet
  • 2 – Family will try to help put my desk up
  • 3 – using a broken mouse for now
  • Currently, my desk is two dinner tray tables

Getting a bank account

  • 1 – getting a credit card
  • 2 – getting an online payment system like PayPal

Getting used to the new home

  • enjoying life

Things in my online life

WordPress related stuff

I noticed my blog has two posts with the most views on my blog

  • 1 – “Seen Lifesfinewhine’s update on WP” and feel Pinterest has added a boost to the view count
  • 2 – Why I still use WordPress, and not Tumblr for now

It is interesting to see these posts with high views, but again, Pinterest has helped a lot because of the gifs in the post, and users view the post and leave. I feel I should delete these pins linking to my post on Pinterest, and remove these gifs in the posts I made.

Blogs posts I got in the works

1 – life blog log

2 – elsword blu log

3 – witching hour log

4 – Sonic fans

5 – SRB2 kart

6 – ???

Twitter / social related

  • I noticed a lot of Twitter users followed my Twitter (Onychaos) when I was getting ready to leave that account. I gave it one full year. But I can’t do it. That account has good memories, bad memories, and people who left or are there that are tied to those memories. I felt it is best to cut some people out of my life, and if they follow me again, I will refollow them but I think this is for the best.
  • Onychaos is not the main account, don’t follow it. Even though, discord users, elsword players, bloggers followed my dead account :(
  • Chaosimpact_ is my new Twitter, I am using it. And a shame people followed the dead account (onychaos)
  • been using discord a lot as of late

Gaming related

  • playing Phantasy Star Online 2
  • played and beaten Terraria
  • 1 – started expert mode
  • “played” elsword
  • Playing Princess & Conquest for a good bit

I just wanted to make a short update log-like blog post since it has been a good while, and I don’t want an inactive blog. Lol, I hope this will be fine till my other posts are ready to be posted. I will see you later with new blog posts, and I will be sure to comment on some blog posts.

We are moving again

Alright. Starting the post-opening different here. The reason here is I’m moving out soon, and the lack of activity on a lot of things will come to a complete stop. We start the process of packing up our stuff and cleaning the townhouse. And after that, we leave on the 29th of April or around there.

Once we are done cleaning and packing up our stuff, we are going to stay in a hotel and probably catch our flight in the morning, rather than flying at night and going to our place in the dark. But before we can move, there will be a lot of packing and cleaning up the house.

So, what is going to happen is on the 26th of April, I will be busy cleaning, packing up our stuff, playing Phantasy Star Online 2, and being ready to move after everything is done. I will say that I will be less active everywhere else but PSO2. I will be doing as much as I can but I will be on discord as well.

Things I will try to do before the move. I might not get to do everything but I will try to do some of the things listed here.

  1. Do a Livestream on twitch (Today)
  2. Make one more blog post
  3. Play more PSO2
  4. Make some blog post drafts

This blog post is more of an update status on what’s going on soon or what is changing. So I wanted to update everyone and people on what’s new. And with that, I am done. I think once I get moved in, I will update my blog theme and everything else. I can’t wait to update all my content.

Here is how it will look or an idea of us moving out. From my understanding anyway.

Monday – start cleaning the house and packing up stuff

Tuesday – Family comes to help with cleaning, and they come to hang out and eat food.

Thursday – we call the movers to get our stuff sent out to the new house.

Everything else, not too sure. Lol.

Stay safe, and I will be back to blogging in may

How I used to make blog posts

So, this post will be different for me since I am doing something very different from what I used to do when I make a post, and I feel this will help me get back into the flow of things and the flow of blogging again.

So how I normally create blog posts is as followed. I open up LibreOffice Writer, and I start writing down my thoughts. It can take me a few hours to a few days but that depends on what I am blogging about, and when I’m tagged in a blog post by someone, it can take a few days as I want to get everything down. I’m slow at typing, haha.

When I am done. I would normally post this onto my blog, and add a few more things and call it a day. But then I started using Grammarly and with that in the mix. What takes a few hours goes into days because I use it to find errors and tiny typos.

In Grammarly, I spend like 5 to 7 hours to a few days on a single post, finding grammar and other stuff in my post. And it takes so long because I get tired and I just stop to do other things because fixing your grammar for hours on end can kill the mood to post.

And this was a bad habit I got into. If I didn’t edit out the grammar and other issues, the blog post wouldn’t be worth posting, and I want to say this is a toxic mindset I formed but I am getting out of this mindset because I love to blog. I used to blog before without worrying too much about grammar. Sure, there were grammar issues here and there, but I made my posts clear enough where you can understand the message, even with the grammar mistakes.

I guess I have become self-conscious of what I do, and for blogging, that is pretty clear since I used to blog almost every day to now. I can put out one blog post if I am lucky. And this sucks but I think I will use Grammarly to fix the normal spelling mistakes but everything else, I will not touch, as I don’t want to spend 5 hours or more. I am going to break out of this prison, so to speak.

I have a lot of things I want to post, and I will do just that. I knew there was a reason why I was not blogging as much. And I spent days trying to figure out the answer, and I got my answer. It’s a crazy answer, but an answer, no less.

A quick question. What software do you use to blog? I use LibreOffice but I wanted to know if there are better document programs besides Microsoft Word?

Thank you for reading. This blog post is an odd one but I like to share stuff. And it is good I share things like this.
