1. For search engine optimization (SEO) purposes, I added my byline again to all posts. That means under every title of my posts except pages you will see “By Bernard Go”, albeit a bit smaller than my primary font size of 16 pixels.

For some reason some values were inherited from the post box, and some default values I didn’t like, so I changed it from these:

.post_author {
    text-transform: uppercase;
    letter-spacing: 1px;
    font-size: 16px;
    line-height: 26px;
}
.post_author_intro {
    font-style: italic;
    font-size: 16px;
    line-height: 26px;
}

To these:

.post_author {
    text-transform: none;
    letter-spacing: normal;
    font-size: 13px;
    line-height: 22px;
}
.post_author_intro {
    font-style: normal;
    font-size: 13px;
    line-height: 22px;
}

2. I would like to add original photography to most of my blog posts. Once I can afford a black or silver Google Pixel or Pixel XL you best believe that I will take pictures with it, and then post those pictures here at BernardGo.com. Most likely by the time I can afford one, a new version would have been released already. I’ll buy the latest iteration with the latest specs of course.

Once I feel like I need to take my photography to the next level, I might go with something like a silver Fujifilm X100T.

3. If I stay here in the Philippines, my goal is to buy a studio or a one-bedroom unit at One Shangri-La Place, which is in Ortigas Center, Mandaluyong, Metro Manila. If not, then I’m considering Las Vegas, Nevada, USA; Edmonton, Alberta, Canada; Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Paris, France; or Singapore (most likely).

4. I spent about an hour removing all the Read More tags from all of my posts. If you noticed, there’s no “Continue reading” anymore on any of my posts when you click on “Previous posts” or “Next posts”. I feel like this is better for my readers. Not having to click on a link to continue reading provides a better user experience.

5. How to draw an owl made me laugh. Just two easy steps, right?

6. I regret removing the Read More tags. I knew this was gonna happen, but I did it anyway. Removing it would increase the load time and page size. What I did now is to add the Read More tags again to the long posts that is currently on the front page. The load time and page size went down again. Good.
