A New Blog and a New Website!

Welcome to version 4 of my website! I’ve been wanting to make changes for a while and when I changed service providers this became possible. There are 3 major changes:

  1. Thanks to now having MySQL, I am able to use a third party, open source piece of software called Word Press, which is what you are looking at now. It means I am able to update my blog from any PC easily without having to edit XML files, which I had to previously, so I shall add to it more frequently.
  2. The Gallery has been simplified (Portfolio and Catalogue are gone). It is easier for me to add photos and I am currently in the process of going through my entire library and adding suitable photos.
  3. The buying section has gone too. This is being replaced with a simpler system, but is currently out of action.

Enough technical stuff! The weather has been the main focus of my activity recently with the snow and ice. I’ve spent a lot of time waiting in the car for it to stop snowing and a lot of time being snowed on. Here’s a photo from Rhossili, taken last week.

    I like your new site, it seems to work very well :-) I really like these sheep, too, grazing under the Welsh snow-laden sky!

    I like the way it all works now … although for some reason I managed to get a white page with a photo up on the top left hand side … but when I re-tried it it all worked perfectly? Not sure why this happened

    I like the flow of how it all works … very nice!

    I really like the new site … has a really good feel to it. Works well and quick … always good thing! I am hoping mine works as well when I’ve finally got it sorted.
