Zero to Hero update

It’s day 12 and so far I have completed 7 of the challenges set. Day 6 was try a new element, add something in that I haven’t done before. Spicing things up a bit by changing it around is all good, but I’m not going to do it just because.
I haven’t been out to explore the neighbourhood much, but I do have a list of bloggers who’ve visited me that I should really get out to look at. So that will be another done (once I actually do it) and another challenge which I try to do anyway, is leave comments. More specifically, leave at least 5 comments a day on different blogs. Sometimes I just don’t have time, which is where that lovely little ‘like’ button comes in handy. You know I’ve been, but I couldn’t stop to chat.
Another day I found a really cool link, but buggered if I can find it now. It was all about pictures and photo apps. I use my phone a lot for taking pictures and then uploading to my blogs, I also use the ipad (after transferring pics from the camera card) so I used that particular challenge to find an app I could use with both iOS and Android. Not always easy, Apple can be picky about sharing sometimes. But I found it. And it’s pretty cool. Snapseed. Does so many cool things, and very easy to use. Go check it out.  All I need now is a similar one for the laptop…
Other tasks were doing the about page and adding widgets.  I’ve done both, changing titles here and completely re writing my About page. Pop over and check it out, let me know what you think.
Today’s task is to make a post based on a comment I made on another post. I have one in mind that might just work. Expand the comment into a post, and link back to the original blog.  Easy.
And my gratuitous picture for today will be…. (I declined the extra gratuitous shot of bikini clad girl)

What’s in a name, my name?

Not my personal name, that’s something else again. No, whats up with my blog name and tagline. Does it catch your eye, make you want to stay and look a little further? I hope so.

I’ve had this blog for nearly 3 years now, and it’s had a couple of name changes. All variations of the same theme.
When I first started this blog I wasn’t thinking of the future and whether my URL might need changing. I have looked into changing it but it just seems like too much trouble, I am easily confused by this sort of thing, and I could very well have to start fresh with followers, I’m not sure I want to go down that track.
So jenbeads it is. And jenbeads it will stay.
I think its easy enough to remember even if it’s got nothing to do with what I am writing about.
The name for my blog. As my friends and family know, and those who read long enough, I am never far from my camera and usually have a coffee close by or in my hand – I will do anything for a coffee. (Yes, I have one next to me as I write this).

The tagline, simply put, is what it is.
“Ramblings from a coffee addict”
A bit of this, a bit of that, coffee pictures, photos of other stuff. And occasionally family stuff.

That’s it for me, for day 2 of the challenge. It’s actually quite nice to come back, and start from the beginning again. To write, and think about why I did something, why I chose what I did. And for new visitors it should help you, maybe understand me a bit better (not that I understand me).
Maybe I can learn from that? Let’s see what the Challenge for day 3 brings us.
Catch you later:)
