Blog merging thoughts…

In a moment of creativity, I separated all my travel-related posts from this blog and set up MyLittleTravel.blog. But now I thinking of reversing this and going back to how things were... For a start, I'm not a 'professional blogger' whatever that is. So a separate travel blog doesn't bring in sponsorship deals or free ...

Photo Challenge: Liquid

Identifying just one liquid-themed photo from my collection for this week's blog post challenge was tough. I seem to be drawn to them and my Google Photos account is more blue water and blue sky than (almost) anything else. But here's one of my favourite photos from the last few months: a view of Shadwell ...

Wait. Where are all the travel posts?

If you've been here before, you may be wondering where all my travel adventures have gone. I've bundled several years worth of travel posts into a single blog, located elsewhere. This blog will remain geek-central (along with pictures of my artery-clogging meals), and if you're interested, you can follow my travel kvetching over at mylittletravel.blog. ...

My top posts of 2016

It's been a busy year on the blogging front. I reached by 1,000th post and built a better habit of regular posts. Some of which were surprisingly popular with those of you with enough time on your hands to come visit. I had a quick look at my stats and the following posts are (in ...

This is the 1,000th post I've written on this blog, which for me is a bit of a special moment. I've not stuck with a blog for so long over the years and, as this one keeps getting readers and their comments, I guess I'll keep going! Thanks to everyone for the constant feedback and ...

Postach.io’s back!

You may recall I got very excited by a start-up called Postach.io come time ago. Simply put, their USP was taking your simple Evernote notes and turning them into a simple blog. Just tag a note as 'published' and it appeared as a new blog post. Simples! I quickly fell in love with it, due ...

So much easier

Only a few days since I moved this blog from a self-hosted solution to WordPress.com and I'm already so very glad I made the leap. No more plug-ins to maintain, no more time-outs, no more complexity. I just fire up the browser, head to WordPress.com and start typing. It's a simple, but powerful interface. And ...

Time for a refresh…

Time to spruce up this blog, I think. Very bored with the look and feel. WordPress theme shopping later tonight...

Catching up on life

As I'm "home alone" this weekend for the first time in a while, I restarted the long-held tradition of staying up far too late watching crap TV, having made poor meal choices. I fended off the strong urge to order take-away and instead enjoyed some pulled pork in a baguette, made at home. Stunning. I ...
