For a while now, I have been considering changing the theme for this blog. The reason it's taking time, is that I don't know what I want. I have looked at a few themes recently but nothing really jumps out at me. I currently use the Karuna theme and previous to that I had the … Continue reading A bit of a quandary …
The demise of the “Daily Post” has left me feeling a little bit lost. Like many WordPress users, I used the “Daily Prompt” for inspiration rather than a resource to find other blogs. I recently purchased a ‘Personal Plan’ as opposed to a free plan, with the intention of using the Daily Prompt, as what … Continue reading Where now …
I have decided. There shall be NO single theme in this blog. There are a few reasons, but the main one is that this blog is just me. I started it as a means of practicing my writing. The intention was that I would mainly read other writers posts and glean what knowledge and tips … Continue reading The result and other things …
I have been looking for a new theme for this blog for sometime now, and I think at last that I've found it.Those generous people at WordPress have released a new theme called Blask. I have to do a full test, but on the surface, it seems to tick all the boxes. It is minimalist … Continue reading I think I ‘ve found it …..
Nothing of real interest here. I have finally taken the plunge and changed my theme. I've been thinking about it for a while and it came to a head this morning, when I tried to add an image to a post. Everything I tried seemed to show the image with a solid grey border around … Continue reading Theme Change Alert
Not much today. I decided to add a 'Top Post' widget, but the side bar was looking a bit overlong. Enter 'Secondary Side Bar'!!! Hmmm, I'm not too sure about this. The main body seems to be too squashed to accomodate two sidebars effectively. What does anyone think? Maybe I need to consider … Continue reading Another quick update ….
As a part of this "Blogging 201", the three goals I intend to aspire to are: Increase number of comments; As of today's date (20/09/2014) I have a total of 154 comments on the posts I have made. My goal/aspiration is to increase this by 20% by the end of October. My ultimate goal would … Continue reading Goals and aspirations
I have been toying with the idea of changing my blog theme for some time. But getting around to it, has been another story. Getting right and more important, readable takes a little bit of effort. This one is the fourth one I have tried today, and I think I will use this for … Continue reading New theme applied
Wednesday saw a family birthday meal for S****. To coincide with Halloween, S**** decided that he wanted us to all dress up. His theme was Black! I had no idea what to wear, until I saw that S**** had a bowler hat. Now, I thought, I only need a black suit and tie (which … Continue reading Fancy dress
Sunday was a long day. Youngest had decided that he wanted some Eastender vids downloading from YouTube. Don’t ask me why Eastenders, as we have no idea where that came from!! So most of the day was spent doing that. A total of 99, eight minute videos to download. It is one of his … Continue reading Another week done …
Just thought I would have another theme change. Wanted something a little cleaner for a while. It is strange. There are about 50 themes, but a lot of them are quite sameish. I don’t like the photo themes or the very dark ones. Some are very cluttered, and I think this one is quite … Continue reading All change ….
I just realised today, that I’ve worked for the same service now for 20 years !!! Of course, the job has changed a lot, and I suppose I have too. It’s funny to think, that out of all the people that worked there when I started, there are only 5 of us left. But … Continue reading Not a lot
I have begun to question the relevance of this blog. I started it on here with good intentions. I had previously had a Google Blogger blog, but found that a little too restrictive, in the fact that you had to login to your account to post. I then tried the Microsoft Live blog and … Continue reading Is there a point ….
The youngest is away on respite this weekend, so it’s a bit of a break. He went off this afternoon, and will be back on Monday around 10:00ish. Mrs H has a day off on Sunday, so we have the weekend all to ourselves. I’m not sure about this new theme. I quite like the … Continue reading Bit of a break….
Well I was tired, before I started today. Yesterdays late night seemed to do for me a little. Work went okay. The usual minor irritations caused by people who just rush things, without checking all the facts. Eldest is at a gig in York tonight. A lot of his drama friends have gone, because R**** … Continue reading A longish day
