A New Adventure

With a pretty full diary in the coming weeks and things at home to sort out, what have I decided to do? Move my blog! Well, it's a rainy Saturday and the washing machine doesn't need me to interfere too much, I hope.

Anyway, in the last few weeks, as I've posted photographs and stories of our travels, I've become aware of the slight flakiness of Blogger. Don't get me wrong - I still think it's a great tool for simple blogging and will continue to use it. But as I've got three years worth of valuable (to me) blog sitting there with no easy way of backup, I thought I'd explore an alternative and signed up with Squarespace for a free trial.

Very impressed so far. Lots to tweak, much to learn. But quite straightforward, the "create" interface is remarkably familiar and the ease of use comes as a relief. I've managed to import the whole of my blogger blog across in seconds and I think I'm committed enough to sign up for a paid account pretty soon.

It's a powerful beast though and I can see it being a great new toy to fiddle with.

I'm going to play around with it for a little while abd do a bit of "double posting" before switching over completely, so don't worry, I won't leave you behind when I move on! I'll signpost you to the new place before long and invite you to tell me what you think.

But also...

...just in case you think I've got the life of Riley here, other commitments in the coming weeks include

a number of meetings,, most of which will have a distinct focus, likely to be...

...the imminent OFSTED inspection

planning, prepping and facilitating several training sessions

three other workshops to plan, prep and deliver

a serious, professional training programme to complete

finish some samples for display

three speaking engagements

a report to write

two competitions to judge

and all the fun of the fair here at home, where I'm trying to have a bit of a sort out.

Life is never dull - and that's just the way I love it!
