Looking back & Looking forward
I know when I first started this blog I was very excited. As I progressed and learnt about using Word Press, I joined a Word Press meet up group them formed a meet up group, I learned about different host providers, & about all the aspects of publishing on-line. It has since become a part of my life. Finding a walk, going out taking pictures- then writing about it & publishing it.
Any feedback is appreciated. At the moment though I need to get off the treadmill, take a step back and see what’s next. Continue reading
Meet up Groups
I have been to a couple of Meet Up groups lately.
* WordPress *
Without WordPress I would not have this Blog. I joined their User Group in New Zealand House Haymarket, where they have hired rooms The group Westminster Hub,is provided by sponsors WP Engine.
I had suggested we do a sort of speed dating session, with the aim to find out what people want to get from the group. Eugene was hosting his final night, so this was a good as time as any. It went very well and I felt I had made a contribution to the group. I made my pitch which is that I’m at a crossroads regarding where I’m going with the blog/writing Web Design ideas. I learned a lot about my aims as well as WordPress and Web Developing than I have in a very long time. A good session was had by all, but where now?
I do still want to go out on walks but the writing about walking can sometimes feel like a bit of a chore and I have other ambitions to pursue. It is a personal choice as to how to migrate my blog to a free platform and have little control over the layout or to continue paying for a hosting service. After a lot of churning and thinking I settled at keeping my site hosted by SITE GROUND It’s convenient. A good outcome from that group.
Black White background or White Background ?
Thinking about design
At the WordPress Meet Up group I had some constructive criticism from one of the Web Developers who seemed to think the black background wasn’t good! I have since changed my theme so that is no longer an issue. I chose a design that wasn’t black or white.!
Back to my walking, my latest trip was with the Explorer Uk Group.
