Yes, themes, again. I like this one (‘Steira’) but find the idiotically placed quotation marks on my blog’s pithy (yes; I am being sarcastic) subtitle irritating. It’s possible this one won’t last long. I see wordpress is now offering ‘premium themes’ with one-off costs associated with them, advertising them as a point of difference for the discerning blogger. I could never: I switch themes far to often.
Yikes, I’ve been away too long – this is reading like a personal diary entry rather than something that other people might see.
I have been away; and to be honest I wasn’t sure if I would return to the blog. As it is I’m painfully aware of the copious amount of work that needs to be done to get even a rough version completed of the online version of my grandpa’s war diary. It’s hard going though, with the scanner. I just need to get my arse in gear.
I have been busy though: two part time jobs, from which I’ve only recently had a significant break of any kind. Getting up early in the morning to try and rekindle my fiction writing joy (at this stage it’s play; and I like it that way). I’ve been writing a lot of game reviews as well – and just realised yesterday that I’ve now written over one hundred reviews for NZGamer.com, the first of which was written on the 6th of April, 2006, and was an Animal Crossing review I quickly scrapped up to show them I could conceivably write a review. Odd to think I’ve been doing it for five years now.
(Edit: I’m knocking this theme on the head. It does irritating things with links and italics as well.)
