REVIEW: *New* WordPress Dashboard Layout!

Hey guys! Andrew here. Bringing you guys my first official “REVIEW” post. I will be doing more of these in the future whether it will be related to books, games, food, and new stuff coming out. I will not be doing “REVIEW” posts on movies. Movies are specifically for the category of “Movie Perspectives”. Now let’s begin!

For any of the WordPress users out there that have been on their blogs posting recently, you all must know that WordPress has changed the whole layout of how we administer our blogs as the owner of our blogs. Some might think it’s a little bit too retro or futuristic looking, but to me, I really like it. I thought at first that I messed around with the layout colors or graphics, but turns out my sister’s blog is getting it to. And for the WordPress users who do not know what I am talking about, it is basically how our main dashboard looks like. Wow. I think I just actually cleared that out for everyone. 😛

The dashboard is different in so many ways. The whole options list we have that lists the “Store”, “Posts”, “Media”, “Links”, etc, is colored in black and the text is lightly brightened in white colored text. It kind of gives a sort of slick look to it. They’ve always reorganized the whole “Posts” category and how you can post itself. Did anyone realize that with the new Dashboard Layout that the “Publish” button had changed shape. In the previous Dashboard layout, it was slightly curved into an oval. Now it is a full rectangle. The text seems to be more cut off or blurry a little bit. I began to notice that. The accessibility to everything is great. It’s not really such a BIG change, but there has been a few minor changes and I really like it!

This has been quite a short post, at least in my opinion. I’m not that good at reviewing blog stuff. It’s my first time, but I decided to do it. YOLO, you know. No, I’m just kidding. I hate saying that. XD Anyway. If I have to give my finally “REVIEW” or verdict, it would be I would give the new Dashboard Layout a 4.5 star rating out of 5. If only the could just minimize how many options there would be on the side so I wouldn’t be so full of options and not feel so clustered in the dashboard space. Especially for new users who are creating WordPress blogs. That is all!

Enjoy your time wherever you are! Bye!



The Social Network

Well, almost everybody knows about the one and only movie called: “The Social Network”. Said to be impeccably scripted, beautifully directed, and filled with fine performances, The Social Network is a riveting, ambitious example of modern filmmaking at its finest. Well, there you have your reviews that were said by the crowds that have watched this movie. So, of course you now want to be a part of what your friends/people saw, and see if they were right. Unfortunately, my family doesn’t work like that.

Whenever we see a movie that has very cool previews like the new Transformers 3 The Dark of the Moon, this year during the Super Bowl commercials. Well, before when my family saw Transformers 2 The Risen of the Fallen, we thought it was going to be epic. Unfortunately, we thought it was going to be so awesome, that we decided to watch the movie on the first day it came out in theaters. Fortunately, the movie sucked, and didn’t have an interesting plot. So, basically a waste of money. So, in our family, unless we know 98% for sure that the movie will be good, we just wait ti’ll a movie comes out on DVD, and than watch it. So, eventually when we heard that the Social Network was a world Grammy movie, we knew we’d have to wait ti’ll it came out on DVD.

So, eventually, we watched the movie, and the first time I saw it, I sort of thought it sucked. But, now it’s something I constantly think in my head about. I started to realize the movie better and it became more interesting. But, we can talk, talk, talk here for a long time about my history about it, or we can just get to the Movie Perspective about it.

Characters: There are only 3 main characters in this movie: “The Social Network”. Main character, Jesse Eisenberg, playing as Mark Suckerberg. Second main character, Andrew Garfield, playing as Eduardo Saverin. Third main character, Justin Timberlake, playing as Sean Parker. Jesse Eisenberg plays a big role in this movie as the one who came up with the idea of the new program called “Facebook” and his companion Andrew Garfield, who helps him in the idea of the program, while Justin Timberlake comes in and take over the whole system.

Verdict: It’s an amazingly interesting movie. Not too geeky, and not too much misunderstanding in the movie. It’s just the right amount, for a good movie. I would even want to watch the movie again just to see Jesse Eisenberg get all badass with the computers, and so technological. He’s the reason why I still want to do complicated things and do un-familiar stuff at my age on the computers, plus I still envy his voice, and how speaks all of his words very fast and understandable. All in all, it’s a good movie, and I’d suggest you watch it. 😀
