Studying will lead you to success.

We do not need to proselytise either by our speech or by our writing. We can only do so really with our lives. Let our lives be open books for all to study. – Winston Churchill 

 

Study the past, if you would divine the future.
– Confucius

Most people have no concept of how an automatic transmission works, yet they know how to drive a car. You don’t have to study physics to understand the laws of motion to drive a car. You don’t have to understand any of this stuff to use Macintosh.
– Steve Jobs

In making a speech one must study three points: first, the means of producing persuasion; second, the language; third the proper arrangement of the various parts of the speech.
– Aristotle

No trace of slavery ought to mix with the studies of the freeborn man. No study, pursued under compulsion, remains rooted in the memory.
– Plato

Study men, not historians.
– Harry S. Truman

Around the Carousel Again

The WordPress.com Blog

You might recall the photo carousel feature we launched a few months ago. It has been incredibly popular with both bloggers and visitors, racking up over three quarters of a billion views since then. Today, we’re happy to announce we’re launching v2 of Carousel with significant improvements:

  • Images are served double-resolution (Retina!) for visitors on capable devices, like the iPad 3 or Retina Macbook Pro. (Best, laptop, ever.)
  • Comments! Visitors can now comment directly on each photo.
  • Likewise, you can now like or reblog every individual image.
  • You can now select a light or dark theme for your photos to be showcased on.
  • If your camera includes EXIF metadata, like aperture, lens, and shutter speed, we now show that next to the photo. (You can toggle this off under Settings → Media if you prefer.)
  • We’ve improved performance so it loads and moves faster on browsers old and new.

New Theme: Balloons

The WordPress.com Blog

Today we have a unique addition to the WordPress.com themes collection – Balloons is a charming theme by Chris Magiera.

Balloons

Let your imagination soar – or, perhaps more accurately, float – amongst these playfully parallaxed balloons. The simple one-column design makes this theme perfect for a microblog, if short-and-sweet suits your tastes. The childlike style also lends itself well to showing off those photos of your adorable kids (Grandma will thank you).

Catch your own bunch of Balloons on the Theme Showcase!
