Just like…starting over

There's something about fresh starts that just appeals to me. Whether it be shredding old documents, donating old clothes to charity or even the first day of a new month. I like it. And so, this fresh start. Ironically, I'm writing while feeling far from fresh. After essentially traveling between London, Dublin and Edinburgh for ...

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...

Returning to Wordpress…?

After a 6 month stint over at Postach.io, I'm thinking of moving back to WordPress full time. I've been blogging just as much as before - maybe even a little more - but I'm finding the limitations where it comes to look and feel more and more annoying. On the upside, I did learn a ...

I really have a ...

There are some fantastic interest groups / forums and ...

Once bitten: backing up with Evernote

After my recent blog melt-down and apparent loss of (about) two year's worth of writing, I've decided to adopt a "safety first" approach and ensure this never happens again. Aside from scheduling regular back-ups of the WordPress blog itself, I'm also using the very excellent "If This, Then That" (IFTTT) service to send all new ...

A bit of a mess

So…umm. I appear to have lost the last five years of this blog's content.  I shit you not.  I went to post something this morning, only to be faced with a less than helpful error message. Cue several hours of faffing about with technology I'm less than comfortable with using and a combination of curses ...
