Freshly Pressed – Welcome to all you new folk and a quick question

Freshly Pressed page screengrab

A big hello and welcome to everyone who has come across this site after seeing my recent post on the WordPress Freshly Pressed page. I hope some of you consider following this blog or subscribing to the RSS feed or just pop back at some point or other in the future. A huge thank you to everyone who has followed/commented/liked already. If you really can’t get enough of my waffling, I’m on Twitter and Tumblr too. Blogging is a huge amount of fun no matter who is reading, but it would be wonderful if some of you great folk could stick around. Read the rest of this entry »

Maybe it had yet to hardwire itself into my routine. What I wrote was dull, or self-absorbed, or embarrassing. Who would want to read it? Who would read it? Was I just going to leave my diary hanging around, or was I planning on there being some sort of posthumous release after a long and yet-to-be-decided career? Read the rest of this entry »

Prompted into action

Person waiting to type

WordPress offers bloggers regular ideas or starting points for new posts, with the Daily Prompt feature. I can certainly see the value of it but have always been a little wary. I’d like to write stuff from my own ideas, not from the prompts of others. But with a short period of blogging-time becoming available, and no posts lined up in my head that I could just bash out without any real work, I figured I’d take a look at the suggestions and see if I was inspired. And I was. Kind of. I thought I’d try to respond to the last five prompts posted here in this very post. Read the rest of this entry »
