Website Update

As you may have noticed, I decided to apply a new theme to the website last night. Simply put, I was bored and saw it and quite liked it. I’m still tweaking it and working out how to get everything just right (superfluous as that reads), but hopefully it’s not too shocking for anyone reading.

For anyone interested, there’s a good post on what I can do with the theme here, but one of the main things you’ll notice is that different post formats display in unique ways, often with colour.

Observations on Comments

I know this version of my blog is only new, but I’d like to share some observations on the comments system, just incase anyone is wondering. They are turned on, and they do require approval.

I’ve so far received a comment from someone called Lester who seems to write about snowboards in German and French. As such, I wasn’t sure if that comment was spam, but the comment seemed genuine. I’ve also had one spammy comment that was clearly not real, and that wasn’t approved.

I have a feeling I’ll receive more spammy comments in the future, it’s only natural in this world. However, if you’re a reader, family, friend, feel free to comment. My email also hasn’t changed, but I’m not sure it’s listed anywhere currently. I’d rather stop spam not encourage it.

Finally, if you want to leave a comment, but don’t want it to remain, just say so, I’ll get your message and will then delete it.

But bottom line, comments need to be approved and are available.

Welcome to WordPress

After being offline for many many months, my blog and website is finally functional again and will slowly be built up. Right now it’s a bit sparse, but WordPress should give me the ability to really customise this site in the future.

I hope to fill my readers in on the happenings in my life soon enough, and it’s not pretty, but I’d rather it was out of the way than left unanswered.
