Discover who likes your posts (via News)

Very handy feature

Months ago we added the ability for readers to like your posts, and ever since thousands of people have been liking posts every day. But something was missing: there was no way for post authors to discover when someone liked something they'd written. Or even when someone new subscribed to the entire blog. Today, these problems have been solved:  We've added two new email notifications, one for likes and one for subscriptions. Post authors will re … Read More

Looking at the results I want to get my head around custom css. Open to any good tutorials.

Photo Journal: Wild Flowers Stunning Views

As summer is progressing so is nature. The beauty of creation never stops to amaze me. Below some of the beautiful flowers and views when redoing the Taylors Mistake walk with my oldest son some days ago. What a beautiful time of the year and again the views blew me away.

What a majestic start of our walk looking out over the Banks Peninsula coastline and how amazing all available right on the outskirts of Christchurch.

And at the same time it is hard not to notice the details right under your nose such as the bees having a feeding frenzy in these blue flowers.

We found our nice little spot to have lunch again. This time with weather being much clearer than last time we were both blown away by what we were looking at while having lunch.

It most certainly was one of those amazing days where we were pleasantly surprised by all that was around us.

And all of a sudden around the corner the destination is in sight: Taylors Mistake and we plan to have a drink and another bite there.


More amazing nature after a little rest on the beach at Taylors Mistake.

And upon returning to the parking lot we look back one more time after a great walk together.

If the service is anything like what I have heard tonight I definitely recommend people to come and hear this very inspiring story. What I had the pleasure and honor to hear tonight was absolutely well worth it, I suggest you come and find out what I mean on Sunday. It was certainly a story I can relate to.
