Added a fair bit of ‘stuff’ to the website this weekend but all behind the scenes. The Archives are now a bit more funky and you should now see some Gravatar links if you post a comment. I’ve also been tweaking quite a bit of the php that drives the site – there should be context sensitive sidebars and also the times are a bit more friendly although I keep on missing dates as they are peppered throughout the code. I’ve also added in a Plugins page so you can see what’s been added to the default WordPress engine.
Most importantly I’ve added in lots of interesting content. Ok – I’ve added a couple of drab posts but what do you expect?
Joking aside – I tidied up some old posts with images that weren’t displaying properly. I also removed some work posts that while I thought they were innocent enough with hindsight they were better off deleted – you never know who might read it.
So that’s it – I’m ready to add more dreary posts about the films Iâ€™ve been to see and games that I’ve played. Which makes you wonder why I and others blog…this quote summed it up for me.
â€œBlogging in itself is stupid, really, and self indulgent (or perhaps thatâ€™s just my approach to it). But itâ€™s a hobby, and we are a nation who love our pointless little hobbies. Itâ€™s no more corrosive than other hobbies. Or rather, it shouldnâ€™t be.â€?
Thanks for the quote Gordon – shame about the snide piece in The Sunday Times.
