There are great artists in this world and there are great IT brains too.

I am really slow when it comes to IT stuff and I know bloggers like Drizzt (InvestmentMoats) and LP (Bully the Bear) who have kindly tried to influence me to become more IT savvy at one time or another have probably given up on me. Friends and colleagues too have found out what a dinosaur I am.

Which one is AK?

Blogging is something I do for fun and I don't want to feel any pressure to learn new stuff. Otherwise, blogging becomes stressful and when something becomes stressful, it is no longer fun.

Anyway, I think I might have moved up the IT ladder today as I have included a "Follow AK on Facebook" button in my blog's left sidebar. This is after receiving questions from readers on whether I have a Facebook account.

I do have a Facebook account. I started one a few years ago at a friend's recommendation to build up readership numbers for my blog but I didn't do much to it or with it. I still don't.

Anyway, try the button and let me know if it works:

If it doesn't work, I will need to seek help.

Hi LP,

Well, now, I am trying to get this stubborn FB button to work! Grrrr..

AK71 said...

Hi SnOOpy168,

Shucks, my ploy failed. -.-

Hahaha... Share my blog on your FB then. Thanks. ;)

Hi AK, can just post the page link here, not need button.

Hi Ah John,

You mean like this?

AhJohn said...

Yes. AK, I found you at Facebook

AK71 said...

Hi Ah John,

OK. Thanks for telling me about this. I am a bit of a mountain tortoise. :)

Erm. About your blog... I saw you posted a change of style to show post week by week. :applause:

Would you consider to change style to also allow print view? There are many style/theme available in blogger I believe. Some of the modern themes allow user to toggle between mobile view (which yours sort-of have it) and another one allow print view. In print view, when your reader chooses to print to PDF or physical paper, it would automatically remove the two side columns so that the content fill to the full A4 width.

I want to print to PDF so that at times when I need to remind myself of something, I can just open the pdf to read.

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately, when deciding on the template of my blog many years ago, I decided to go with a 3rd party template.

If my blog is still in its infancy, it would be quite easy to switch to a generic template provided by Blogger.

My blog has grown to be a monster over the years.

If I were to switch to a generic template provided by Blogger now, much of what is familiar about my blog will be lost and I will have to rebuild.

Too much work for lazy AK. :p

A simple solution for you would be to bookmark or favourite specific blog posts which you would like to revisit.

Don't give AK more work hor. :p
