New Theme – Spring/Summer time with photos

I felt like a change, the previous theme was more of an Autumn theme and although I liked it, enjoyed playing around with it and it took blooming ages to get it just right (still never as perfect as I’d have liked), I always felt it was a bit too “artsy” for me and rather busy. Artur agreed. There was a lot going on with the previous theme. This one on the other hand is quieter and has elements of the previous theme – I’ve developed a thing for polaroid style photos in headers (or in this case near headers Read More…

New Beginnings – Hello 2013

I had intended on writing this entry a lot sooner – it was drafted in January (2013) but I didn’t get around to finishing it. The purpose of this entry is to tell you my goals and plans for myself both offline and online – this is more of a reminder for me. Website Goals: Finish transferring my old Fan update posts to WordPress or at least go through my old Fan Update posts and add those that had an impact on my life or those that I particularly enjoyed writing about to WordPress. Add the following pages back: Articles, Read More…

Marking Old Posts

So, I decided to import my previous Fanupdate posts to WordPress – due to a number of reasons, the main one being I like having a record of my blogging history. It’s like keeping old journals, something to look back on and read how you’ve grown and changed. ๐Ÿ™‚ While going through my pages, I’ve been reading some of them – it’s funny some of the random things I used to write about. I also noticed while going through Fanupdate that it had learnt a bunch of my regular commenter’s as spam! :/ I’ve now un-marked them as spam and Read More…

Hello WordPress!

Yep, after years of debating, procrastinating etc – I finally switched to WordPress! ๐Ÿ˜› I’ve been using it a lot recently at work – our website (that I maintain) runs on WordPress and I’ve been loving it! Been trying to decide whether I want to convert my old FanUpdate posts to WP, or if I want a clean fresh start (?). For now it’s time to add some plugins, take down old pages and generally have a bit of spring cleaning. Quick question: Does anyone use the WP phone app? Any good? I have no internet connection at the moment, Read More…

Life catch up – Merry Belated Christmas!

Merry Belated Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a good Christmas and are having great post Christmas holidays – I’m off work for 10 days myself and have been crazy busy this week. It’s mostly been a week of sale shopping and seeing family members. I’ve also been doing some work behind the scenes of my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been working on a couple of new header images which you can see below. Both the above headers are for a purple theme that I’m working on. Sales shopping has resulted in buying some more ‘suitable for work tops’, a Read More…

Life catch up – New Laptop

On Sunday I went shopping with my friend Rob and bought myself a new laptop. I needed one after a drink was accidently split in my old one, frying it. The hard drive is severely corrupted and I’ve lost all my data. ๐Ÿ™ My new laptop is a HP Pavilion dm4, with a Dual-core Intelยฎ Coreโ„ข i5-430M (2.26 GHz), 3GB memory (RAM) and 320GB (hard-drive). It has a 14″ screen (read more specs? ๐Ÿ˜‰) and runs Windows 7 operating system (as standard). It also has finger print recognition that I can log in to applications with! Love that feature, it Read More…
