Blogging

Time for a spring clean

It’s been far too long since I last looked at this blog but I decided it’s about time for a quick facelift and a bit of TLC. If you’re reading this via a feed reader then head over to the blog and take a look at the new theme.

The theme is PixelPower and makes nice use of both HTML5 and CSS3 to produce a responsive design that works well on mobile devices (so I’ve been able to do away with WPTouch) and still have an accessible site on mobile devices.

Giving the blog a facelift was the easy part. Now I need to actually get some time to write some posts!

Twitter

twitter_logo_headerI’ve decided that it’s time to get back on to Twitter. I used to use it about a year ago, and had the username ‘jb’ but decided to give it up as I wasn’t using my account. I’ve just added my twitter posts to the sidebar of the site, but if you use twitter then feel free to follow me, and drop me a message every now and again…

WordPress 2.7 Beta

I’ve been playing around with WordPress 2.7 over the past few weeks, and I have to say it’s excellent! I seem to be in the minority of people who weren’t too keen on the previous version, and the changes they made to the interface, but the new admin panel is superb! Everything, from the fonts used, through to the structure of the menus, works brilliantly and there’s some excellent new features. Most notibly the upgrade feature that saves having to have FTP access to be able to upadte your install.

If you’re brave enough I would definately reccommend installing the 2.7 Beta 3 and giving it a try…

An expirement in photography

Over the past month I’ve been out a few times and taken some pictures. Each time I’ve realised how much I love photography and been determined to get out more often. However, me being me, in a few months I’ll be bored and will sit down in front of the TV and waste time, rather than getting out the camera and doing something creative.

Waiting for the tide

So with that in mind I’ve set up a photoblog, as an experiment to see if it can encourage me to take more images, post some regular pictures. You can visit the blog at http://photos.version7.co.uk and subscribe to the RSS feed, comment on images etc. The design will be updated slighlty over the next week or so.

So head over and let me know what you think – http://photos.version7.co.uk

I know what you’re thinking… My fourth blog post this week ‘he must be bored’. We’ll that’s not true, kind of!

I just clicked a random link in my WordPress News dashboard and found Photo Matt, I haven’t really had chance to read any of the content but the design of the header really stood out as an excellent piece of design.

 It makes me want to do some actual design work on this blog, I guess I’ll tag it under ‘inspiration’
