Blogging…an end


Occasional comments via blogging is a great idea and I thought having it open for responses would be OK too. However, I was simply spammed by bots or whatever wanting me to buy or access their products or services. So I turned off the responses. There weren’t many but the whole experience was depressing.

On reflection the year has, for the most part, been that essential mix of the interesting and the unexpected. It’s what contributes to an excitement about the next year. The past year was that combination of sustainable, sad, inspiring and fulfilling that is necessary¬† to look forward with a very positive outlook.

I haven’t progressed as far as I would have liked with the site this week.¬†I can see it will be an ongoing exercise just getting it looking right. There is still a lot to learn and refine as far as layout goes. It’s far from intuitive at the moment, unfortunately. Interesting experience though.

OK, I think I’m getting a handle on this. Very different and feature rich compared to the dark old days of page hacking. Looking forward to seeing what I can contribute here.
