July 25th 2017

Today I updated the design of this blog a little bit. It’s been a while and I thought that it needed a refresh. The changes I made were more in the navigation than the design. You’ll perhaps notice that there’s now a new menu across the top of every page. This menu is linked to various categories that I write about often (sport, travel, film, music, food, family & books). I’ll be honest, I was tempted to give ‘Halloumi’ it’s own category.

The aim of adding the categories is to make it easier for a reader to access content that they’re interested in, as I respect that some of my readers like it when I talk about travel, but aren’t so interested in what I had for dinner. I appreciate that sometimes these blog posts can be quite dry, because sometimes nothing new or interesting happens in a day (like today, hence why I’m writing about this). So the categories make it easier for people to find interesting stuff.

The second bit of navigation I added is a calendar down the bottom.Screen Shot 2017-07-25 at 21.42.29.png

Mainly, this calendar is for my use. Although getting views on these posts from other people is nice, the primary purpose of this blog has always been as a way of documenting my life. Having these daily blog posts allows me to look back on periods of my life to see where I was, who I was, and what I was doing. Adding the calendar makes it a little bit easier and a little bit quicker for me to do that.

For example, I can easily flick back and view all the posts from February 2016 to see what I was doing that month. I can see that I was working a lot, playing golf, going to the gym, and editing my novel.

Until tomorrow, not much has changed, it seems.
