Breathe a little

I’m starting to run out of pictures from our Hatfield Moor trip, so we’ll have to go out again and get some more. Fortunately, we have the last of our long weekends for the year coming up. If the weather is as sunny as it is today, the poet might finally get the autumn colours…

Technical issues

Here is another view from Hatfield Moor. The peat moors are quite ancient and this is part of what they call the Neolithic Way.  These little paths wind all over the moors in a circular pattern, with varying walks of different lengths. Because of the nature of the site – it is after all peat…

Hatfield Moor

WordPress was having a bit of a hissy fit today. First of all, it wouldn’t let me create or edit a post in Edge, and then it wouldn’t let me preview a post in Opera or Edge.  However, as I pay for the personal plan, I was able to contact support and they seem to…

This week, Matthew, I’m going to be a novelist …

This 3D picture of Mr Punch has been on many of my phones for a very long time. I found him on an artist’s website, and I remember being very impressed with her work – and I’m sure the artist was a she.  He first appeared on my blog when it was over on Blogger….

One job at a time

I don’t have any pictures to hand today, and I don’t have time to sort one out. So here’s one courtesy of Pixabay.  Today I am not a happy bunny as WordPress have finally taken the classic editor off the WP admin posts page. Perhaps it’s an October thing. It’s not all bad, as there’s…

Lockdown easing

For more than 3 months, this country has allegedly been on lockdown. Although, if you see how many people have been walking past our remote bungalow and how they walk right at you when you’re out, it’s understandably difficult to believe that anything changed. My work didn’t change. If anything, I became more busy. But…

Thursday 14 November 2019

Hmm. Not only is the old classic WordPress interface much easier and quicker to use, it also posts when I schedule it to. The new editor isn’t exactly on a winning streak at the moment … Yesterday was a good working day. I got up on time, was at my desk on time, and I…

Thursday 12 September 2019

I’ve finally taken the leap and moved over to the WordPress *new* block editor. I resisted for such a long time because, well, I know where everything is on the classic editor, and every time I looked at the block editor, the first thing I wanted to do required extensive research, and I never seem…

Week 1 didn’t go well

I started the year with great plans to catch up with the backlog and crack on with new stuff. (Wow, I got a dropped capital.) (Hmm, not sure if I like it or not.) It hasn’t gone well so far … I’ve checked the job boards every day, but nothing has taken my fancy –…

Just messin’

Today was supposed to be the start of the new regime. I was going to have a good long look at the work I already have in and the work I already have planned and then I was going to put it into some sort of order. So far, I’ve updated the diary for the…

Technobabble

I’m not great technically. I get by. I can learn how to do many things, and I even learned computer programming once upon a time. But these technical giants, they don’t exactly make things any easier, do they? The past few days I’ve been working on the blog. I’m transferring my domain name over to…

The alphabet adventurers

The time is near for my lifestyle blog, Tales From Baggins Bottom, to pack itself away. It has served me well, since 2005, across Blogger and WordPress. But things change, move on. And so have we. I have two new blogs that will probably cover everything that Baggins Bottom used to. One of these is…
