You’ve got to pretend you’re David Bowie singing that all famous line.
You will (hopefully) have noticed some changes to the blog. As much as I enjoyed the old theme, it was feeling more and more outdated and cramped and I needed a change. Things have stalled a little with my writing with at most one post a month. I have no idea how I churned out so much and still had more to talk about when I first started the blog. I’m probably doing more now than ever before, yet as a consequence of that I have less time to dedicate to the craft. I also picked up the dreadful habit of starting a piece of writing and leaving it part way through, losing whatever flow I had and making it next to impossible to finish when I finally sat down at the computer again.
The Ordinary Decent Refresh
I’ve picked a relatively simple theme to try and focus on the writing. My homepage was reasonably crowded in the last iteration of the blog and this time I wanted cleaner lines and less to distract attention away from the core content. Insert some more internet buzzwords here. I’m sure I could talk about SEO and keywords, although that would lead to a sharp decline in my already limited readership. Any who, enjoy this picture of a loaf I made.
In a sort of pretentious way, I’d like the site to be more like this home-baked farmhouse white cob loaf. Simple lines, with a certain unique flair, with delicious fresh content. Now slice that content and spread it with some fresh butter and you’ve got yourself a website…I think? I may be getting lost in this baking metaphor, but at the crux of it I just want to make the site a bit more accessible and nicer looking.
Speaking of nice looking, check out these square croissant-donuts (not technically cronuts as that’s still trademarked as far as I’m aware) that we picked up in the Rise Bakery in Plymouth.
What was I talking about? Oh yes, maybe I should focus my efforts on opening a bakery rather than writing. It would certainly be a delicious way to spent a lot of time and lose a lot of money, but perhaps not the most practical idea. I’ll stick to baking bread for now, and writing vague and incomprehensible posts about stylistic choices.
I promise I’ll go back to talking about less insane things….unless you prefer this.
