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...

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 ...
