Miscellany

Hello all

There are just a few things that I wanted to post about, so I thought I’d resort to a Miscellany post for now. I am trying to gather lots of things together so that I can start posting on a much more regular basis, but it’s slow going and I haven’t been all that inspired lately. Thanks to all you readers who stick around and seem to enjoy reading what I have written.

In blog name news, I think I may have come up with a few options. I am umming and ahing about the idea of running a poll and letting you guys give me some feedback, but the thing with that is that I will probably end up going with the one I want regardless of the results of said poll. So I am going to make a final decision in the next few days, and will probably end up just changing the name of the blog one day, and that is all the notice you will get! The options that I have are all currently available as a WordPress URL, so it’s just a case of picking my favourite. Once the name is picked, I am also going to have to work on a new header for my blog, and, as you can probably see, I am not the world’s greatest artist/graphic designer (or whatever you want to call it). I would love some help in that area, but as I have no funds, I can’t afford to commission someone to do it for me. If you know of anyone that would be willing to help on a completely free basis (aside from advertising, I can of course promote said person all over the blog), please let me know! In the meantime, the header will probably be something fairly rudimentary that I can knock up myself on Photoshop.

By this time tomorrow I am hoping to have made a start on my 30 Before 30 list, by having baked a cake. It might count as a bit of a cheat, because I am going to bake one that I have baked before. However, it is one that I made at Christmas and gave away (four times, actually), and so technically my baking it on that occasion actually counts towards my ‘Ten Unique Cakes’ goal. However, I didn’t photograph the process or the cake, and nor did I actually get a chance to taste it, so I am doing it again for the purposes of the blog. It’s about time I actually made a start on this list, as we’re into February already, and I have nothing checked off.

Finally, I want to tell you about a competition that I have entered over at Mozzypop. It’s a fairly fabulous giveaway, to celebrate Dayner reaching 1000 followers (a figure I can only dream about and envy), and it’s running right now right over here. It’s really easy to enter, and in the time-honoured tradition of most blog giveaways, there are plenty of ways to gain extra entries (five, in fact). So hotfoot it over there now for your chance to win a Burgundy Satchel as the first prize (with loads of other stuff), or one of three runner-up prizes. Go on, do it now!

Oh, and actually finally, I am thinking about running another giveaway on here, maybe to coincide with the new name. The first giveaway I ran was fairly successful, and I had a lot of fun doing it. If anyone reading this is a creator/crafter of any kind, and would interested in teaming up with me for said giveaway, please contact me! You can do so using this form, or on Twitter.

Until next time
