So as you will be able to tell from the previous posts, last year I tried to get back into the habit of blogging.
I failed spectacularly.
Now that the new year has rolled in I have decided to start again. This attempt should go better, as I have arranged a few things to work in my favour and force me to keep this updated.
Firstly I have after many years purchased my own domain, this is the first time I have personally owned one in over 5 years, But why you may ask will this make me update more often? Well the reason for this is simple, I do not like to waste money. Having a domain and then not using it would irritate me at the waste of hard earned cash.
Secondly I realised recently that I didn’t have any form of personal web presence in which I could really go off on a ramble about things that get on my nerves, or ideas that I have. Sure I have the usual Facebook, Twitter and various other social network, but they have their limitations. There is also the magazine, Thirteen1 which is all well and good for my gaming related ramblings, but as much as I love gaming sometimes I go off on one about other things and that wouldnt be the right outlet either.
The Final reason is podcasting, over recent months I have realy been getting back into the podcast world, Now subscribed to a whole raft of different casts on various subjects. This has revitalised in me a long term urge to create a podcast of my own. Now I’ve found a very useful plugin for wordpress that allows me to stremline the creating and distibution, so this weekend I have been playing with tools for recording & editing – deciding wheter it should be simply audio or video etc. I will put up some of my experiments later this week.
So thats about it, obviously this design that your seeing now is a work in progress – I will be making many changes to the visual style here over the coming days/weeks but i thought it was more important to get back to the task of actually blogging.
