[Feature] ► This 2016: New Changes and Features for Edmaration.com

THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS FROM READERS
(The full article is posted below this discussion box.)

"...these are the things you should expect this 2016. I'm already 5 years in the blogosphere..."

[FEATURE] ► On February 2016, Edmaration.com will have its 5th year of existence in the blogosphere. It's been 5 years of sharing stories, of town explorations, of heartaches and elation. For me, this is not a mere achievement. It's more of a responsibility to continually create quality contents readers are expecting. Reaching 5 years isn't a joke. It's pretty hard to maintain a blog and create unique and interesting contents for 5 years. 

[FEATURE] ▬ WHAT TO EXPECT ON EDMARATION.COM THIS 2016


So now that 2016 has come and my 5th year blogversary is fast approaching, here's what you should expect this year on edmaration.com!


▬ What to Watch Out This 2016 ▬


FROM THE TRADITIONAL WRITTEN NARRATIVES AND TRAVEL photos I've been posting here on Edmaration.com, this blog will offer new ways of telling travel stories and thoughts through videos. Writing narratives and taking photos are definitely easier ways to tell a story on a blog platform but I want to offer new alternatives for readers with diverse preferences. Speaking of preferences, there are readers who want a short post. There are also readers who love novel-like long stories so I've come up with the Travel Blogserye. For more information, continue reading below.


▬ More Videos this 2016 via edmarationTV ▬


PHOTOS AND NARRATIVES ALLOW EVERY READER to imagine and feel what the writer/s is feeling that time and can lead them virtually to the place where they've been. For videos, it's a different thing. For a video to become effective in telling a story, it must have a concept, relevant clips and a story line to be interesting.

[FEATURE] ▬ WATCH OUT FOR EDMARATIONTV THIS 2016


For 2016, I'll be launching edmarationTV, a new label of this blog that will tell stories in videos, hence, videos of town explorations. This will serve as platform for the followers of this blog who love watching videos.


▬ More Travel Series via Travel Blogserye


YES, YOU READ IT RIGHT. FOR READERS who love soap operas and drama series on television, travel blogserye is for you. I'll try to adapt the soap opera format here on my blog via the travel blogserye. These are stories of town explorations with a dose of real-life drama divided into several episodes. The travel blogserye will feature monologues, travel narratives and true-to-life adventure stories in a blog format.

▬ New Logo for Edmaration.com ▬


When I started this blog, I didn't know what branding is all about until I learned its importance later on. My old logo just came out from nowhere without any meaning because it's the only thing I can do due to my little knowledge in graphics. Uh.

Anyway, this 2016, the Edmaration.com will have a new logo. It is composed of a bright green triangle inside a black box. The black box represents uncertainties and doubts while the bright green triangle represents hope and life. It means that if you'll keep your hope alive and live a life full of the brightness of joy and bliss, you will always defeat the darkness of uncertainties and doubts and will eventually spread the positivity from the inside out.

Left: Old Logo | Right: New Logo



The triangle has three pointed edges and these signify that in every direction, there's hope and life. It means that there is still this great hope that I'll be traveling the world in all directions full of life! The triangle also has another meaning. It resembles a play button which represents the newest offering of this blog—that is, the edmarationTV... now playing.


▬ Final Words ▬

FOR THE REGULAR FOLLOWERS OF THIS BLOG, these are the things you should expect this 2016. I'm already 5 years in the blogosphere so I need to level up. And dang no! I'm not competing. My purpose is to give reader satisfaction. From being a hobby where I didn't care if someone reads or not, I'm now treating blogging seriously yet passionately. No stress, it's pure fun. No one will get tired of doing what you love right? I'm a living example. ▬ end
