I didn’t ever want to start making this a what-i-had-for-breakfast-blog, but a combination of a few things have driven me to this post.
1. A new camera – finally I’ve got one that I can carry around without needing a rucksack, hooray!
2. I’m liking bright cold mornings right now. This felt like a nice expression of that.
3. Setting up my blog to integrate with Flickr.
So, this is what I saw out of the office window when I arrived at work early the other day, shot on my new digital camera, posted on Flickr. (And I had peanut butter on toast for breakfast).
But I’m not sure about the value of Friends Reunited – sure it’s got a big database, but just from a personal perspective it really feels as if it’s a dead community. I’m guessing that the interactions of visitors are limited and the frequency of visits is tiny.
Whilst checking my lovely new easy-to-read stats package ‘Mint’, I noticed that an old friend and colleague had linked to me. A click later and hey-presto Kief Morris is alive and well. And he’s even said a nice thing or two about me and my wee blog! (But Kief, sorry mate, I ain’t no Design Director. Take a look around, does this site look like it’s been properly designed!) ;)
Thank you stats, thank you links, and thank goodness there’s only a few people visiting the site or I might never have spotted Kief passing through.
