At last! I’m back in the world of blogging. It’s a long story, with a happy ending.
For a few months now, my blog has been creaking and straining under the weight of posts, photographs and almost any other virtual thing that I could cram on here. I had trouble logging in and then it would crash and photos started disappearing from posts and pages. In the end, I had no choice but to download the whole lot and go through it with a fine toothcomb.
It’s a little like tidying out the garden shed or garage. Everything is neat and tidy when you first build it and you take great pride in placing tools and items exactly where you want them. Next thing you know, you’re filling the place up with old bags and damp cardboard boxes with a thought that you’ll go through them in a day or two, when you’re less busy.
Even after spending a lot of time going through the blog, it was still a nightmare sorting out what photos were missing and what photos remained went with which post. A lesser man would have given up, I tell you, says I with a wife looking on with eyes rolling around her head. She doesn’t understand that these things need maintenance, just like the car. ‘Oh you switch it on and away you go!’ Now my eyes are rolling around my head.
I even took to complaining to my website hosts, who, to be fair have always been very good and understanding with me. The frustration can show in an email sometimes and they know it. They were so kind as to even extend my database by an extra 50 Mb as that was part of the problem with my blog refusing to even let me at times. I’ve since updated and fingers crossed, like a brand new shed, it will all go well.
Apart from a little more tidying up with the photographs here and there, I should be back to blogging a little more regularly. Oh, I was busy too making a community website for our village. If you would like a quick look at it, here it is: Llangunllo Community Website
