EDITOR’S NOTE

T’was the night before Christmas. Oh wait, that’s a different story. T’was the 12th of April and the year was 2012. I had given birth to this little space online called Travelagos (DIS CRIS today). I was 18, with no knowledge of producing blogs. I remember constantly wondering whether anyone would be able to understand my stories. Today, the year is 2017 and my little space online has grown into a mature community of irresistible people. I’m 23, with an acquired knowledge of blogging, I now have a better sense of my voice, although I still occasionally question whether you guys can tune into my stories. The past year has been kind to me, though rigorous, I’ve been successful in setting a foundation for my future through incessantly taking college courses from January to December. 2017 will be gruesome, though Im not expecting anything less, I plan to make a lot of mistakes and forgive myself for every single one of them. DIS CRIS will see a great change in 2017. I’ve gained much confidence to reveal myself and express my viewpoints on current events, including the Trump in the room or should I say in the oval office this coming January 20th. I’ll leave you guys with a quote I held onto this past year- love, start from within.

DIS CRIS

      Thank you! I’m sure you’ll get the hang of things like I have (I guess). If I didnt have a post to finish I would definitely read all of your entries right now. Good luck!

    I’m not sure there’s anything I can add to these comments; other than they are all completely true. This photography is simply stunning. For me an artist has to do something truly fresh and inspiring to catch my attention. You seem to be doing both with a natural talent. It is good to see such achievement appreciated by so many.

    All the best.

    Thanks for checking out my blog post! The concept of your blog is very cool as well as important; I appreciate the research you’re sharing with the sights you’ve seen. Part of the joy of art is understanding that the artist began with certain intentions… and then the art itself breathed and had a life of its own for each viewer. Glad we have made a connection. =)

    Great blog! Can’t wait to see more posts and pictures from your travels. I noticed on your homepage you have a picture of The Shed – is that the one in MS? I live in Mobile, AL and we have one here too. I’m pretty sure the one in MS burned down and is no longer there! 😦

      That was the original “the shed” right?! That’s horrible. Fortunately my first love, the one in Louisiana is still cookin’ so I can visit whenever I’m in town. I am featuring the shed later on so watch out for that post.

    Thank you for liking my blog! It’s really exciting for me to see that someone beside a person I (personally) know likes what I said. Means a lot to me, truly.

    I like the set up of your blog. It seems very modern and up-to-date. You should put stuff in your about, though, instead of just ‘stayed turned…’ as mysterious as that is. 🙂

    This is quite a wonderful blog! The photos especially are wonderful attention grabers, plus seeing such wonderful things people take pictures of are just too much fun. Is your blog about your travels?

      Its about traveling to Lagos (not Nigeria). Lagos is my world and its everything from travels, people, fine art, pretty much everything that I’m interested in and present it in a different perspective (eccentric crazy perspective). It’s a place where everyone will want to go when they’re stressed and talk to people, travel places and discover new things. That was very hard to answer by the way. Thanks for the comment though.

    Hey. thanks for liking my blog Subliminal Spaces. It’s great catching up with so many ideas and experiences on other blogs – I share your virtual traveller tendencies! ‘Just keep writing’ was the advice I followed, so looking forward to catching up with you from now on. May I just query as to why your comments are on your About page and there doesn’t seem to ba a comment or like box on any of your actual posts on the Home page? I think you can change this via the dashboard, but I’m still feeling my way here as well. Thanks again and happy writing 🙂

      Oh you need to click the titles to see the whole post, then the comments and likes will be visible. The ones on my homepage are just teasers to tease you into reading the whole post. The Dashboard is a whole other being that I’m not friends with.

        sorry I’m confused as well haha! I’ve rather foolishly embarked on two blogs and in trying to thank everyone who is visiting and liking the posts, I’m confused as to who is who. You must be the snack contingent, not the cartoon contingent! apologies, and thanks for the likes all the same!! 🙂
