self imposed blogging embargo fails :o

I meant to blog about the fact that I am changing hosts (again). I say again because I actually started the process to change hosts 3-4 months ago for some of my other domains but the provider I went with has not really worked out (Bluehost). I went ahead and exported the WordPress database and imported it into the new host, copied the files over, changed the config settings for the database (wp-config.php) and amazingly everything worked just fine.

That was the problem!! I was fully expecting to have to do multiple imports/exports of this blog to get it working.. didn’t happen so I was waiting till this weekend to transfer the domains over as I still have some work to do on other domains I look after. I look after more than I thought 🙁

Anyhow I have a few posts to complete now so lets hope doing these posts doesn’t delay the move this weekend.

stupid mouse back button

I am far behind on completing posts lately (I have about 8 near completion) and now hate the back button on my mouse as I just lost a post I completed on push email for gmail using the iphone. I’ll try and remember it and write it up later now.


(you would have thought WordPress could have cached it somewhere)


new blog design

I got bored with the old design which happens once in a while.. so I have a new design courtesy of Vladimir Prelovac – obviously with some minor edits by me 🙂

There is still a little work to do, the first of which is to figure out why I have started disappearing from Google again – I have obviously done somethign wrong!

Anyhow, most of my readerbase is via RSS which will never see the design so a gentle nudge to those users to come on over and take a look 🙂
