Please give it a ‘Like’, share it and invite all your Facebook friends to do the same! 🙂

It’s not too late to contribute your artwork to the cause, to do so simply contact me!

Thank you for the support!

ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT!

This is it. We are really doing this. In one week, on the 1st February 2016, we will be launching our artistic project, ‘The Mad Artist’!

For those of you who don’t know what this is all about, please read this brief statement explaining all of it HERE, and if you are more curious about my thought processes about it, click HERE.

But it’s basically a project that will help undervalued artists to showcase their beautiful artworks all on a growing Facebook page – a social media platform for creative minds! I pitched the idea onto this blog first, then to my friends and so far, I was encouraged, so here we are!

Hehe, this is actually the profile picture of ‘The Mad Artist’ Deviantart group, which I created and used to invite artists all over the world to participate in the project. Here’s the group name: TMA-NewTalents, in case any one of you would like to check out the various submitted artworks there. The response was great and positive 🙂

To those of you who have considered joining the project too, this is a reminder for you to submit your art now! Well, actually you can submit at any time, even after the launching date, because we’ll always need your art to showcase to a fresh audience that there are rare talents out there!

If you want to submit:

(i) Either through the Deviantart group that I linked above,

(ii) Or by sending me an email at daphyin.art@gmail.com

Do watermark your work and link me your Facebook page preferably (if you don’t have one then the link of your blog or any other platform you use), as all credits go to the artist!

You can also write a custom caption, to be sent along with the art.

So what are you waiting for? Join ‘The Mad Artist’ project!

Anyway.

I’m just so excited.

Will update you guys about the project in a week.

Until then,

An Evil Nymph.

Instagram As My Micro-blogging Platform?!

As expected, I did not keep blogging regularly.Unless you considered at least one post per month to be regular and consistent, I guess. Oh well, life. School is making me crazy at the moment.

Then, today, something peculiar crossed my mind as I uploaded my latest Instagram post, which is this one by the way:

rose

#Volunteering at Bangsa Ria, an organization for people with special needs, has been one of the most challenging experiences I’ve had. It wasn’t easy; it wasn’t all roses.
But it was worth it.
As one of the #MUVP groups, we hope we’ve made a difference as little as it might have been.
This is a #handcrafted#rose made by the BR members, which I bought today as an additional contribution and just because. It’s so #beautiful 🙂
#charity #foragoodcause #art #nature #monashmalaysia

Okay, I might sound stupid, but this was the first time that I realised that all this time I was actually micro-blogging on Instagram.

Can You Really Be Happy?

By the title, I mean, can you be happy for 100 days in a row?? 🙂 Yes, most of you already know what I’m going to talk about in this post and what has been going on in my life recently while I was away from the blogging world (my most sincere apologies for that!!!), which is the #100happydays challenge!

The challenge is to post a picture everyday for 100 consecutive days online on any social media platform of my choice (I chose Instagram!) showing the little things that makes me happy. The main goal is to make people realise that happiness is not a destination, but a lifestyle 🙂

Thus, I decide to share my first 14 days in the challenge here:

100happydays 1

 

100happydays 2

A Bunny Rant About Google+ & YouTube “Just Married”

*I was thinking about vlogging about this because it is mainly on the changes YouTube has been undergoing lately, but I’m still in exams and blogging about it is much easier and less time consuming. With that said…*

bunny-(8)When I first integrated myself in the YouTube community it was for the sole purpose of watching piano tutorials and covers of my favourite songs because at that time I was self-teaching myself how to play the piano. It was in 2009. I was only 13-14 years old then. Afterwards, after one year, I started making video montages with my favourite TV series at that time: Merlin, and as most of you know my vidding channel was born.

I remember how at that time my YouTube channel was so customizable with the transparency option especially, with which I could thankfully put up a favourite wallpaper of mine to serve as my channel’s background image. I remember how a YouTube channel back then was like a… profile page, with friends as well as subscribers and channel groups and more.

But YouTube’s format gradually changed as the years passed… until we came to the current channel format: less customizable, more professional, which led to a kind of a division between the content creators and the viewers… when in truth we are all equal, and creators are viewers as well as vice versa.

How To Be A Safe and Smart Social Networker

How cool is it that we can at a click of a mouse or the press of a “send” key be in touch with people thousands of miles away from us, in different time zones or communicate with our best friends and families in an instant? Well, you might argue it isn’t THAT cool in relation to your family, but whatever…we can!

Things like Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Skype and MSN/Yahoo Messenger provide us with a quick way of getting information out there, of talking to and interacting with people we know and for that matter people we don’t know too. All this is incredibly awesome, but not without its drawbacks. Here is a savvy guide to being a safe, smart social networker that lets you be able to have fun, but make sure you’re protected.

Dating Tips for Teens

Venturing into the world of dating for the first time as a teenager is both exciting and scary all at the same time. It’s full of butterflies, first kisses, and first heartbreaks. When you first enter the dating realm you have no idea what you’re doing, which can be overwhelming. The good news is that everyone has all of those same emotions, so you’re not alone. Before you jump headfirst into the world of dating, though, make sure you do a few key things:

My Biggest Blogging Mistake!

On the 25th of June 2011, I started a makeup blog, Makeup Is Art on Blogger. I wanted to share my passion for this art to the world. At first I was completely lost. But gradually, as the weeks passed my blog grew… I got familiar with Blogger and blogging itself… but then one day everything stopped: my followers were only 5 in numbers and weren’t growing for weeks, the comments went down…

What happened? Is this happening to you now?

First we have to check these 3 main things that we should do when one blogs:

1. Publish quality content

2. Participate in the blogging community i.e. comment on other similar blogs, in discussions, forums, contests…

3. Publicize blog through social media like Twitter, Facebook, Stumbleupon…
