After many years using the Windows Live Spaces tool as my blogging homeland, MSN have sold their souls and turfed me, and doubtless thousands of other bloggers out into the big bad world of blogging… I now have Finbar On Tour hosted on WordPress.
The practical reality of this means that whilst my blogging has been saved, my lists have not… so I’m going to have to generate new solutions to track my NI attendance, 92 Club, and English Matches attendance lists as well as working out new ways to track my reading and review posts. Fortunately though my photos & videos have been saved on Windows Sky Drive, but I now need to work out how I get that linked properly so that it’s easy to find and use.
I guess this new change offers me an opportunity to work out new tricks and techniques, and obviously a chance to do bit of a refresh & clear out. Over the course of the next few weeks, hopefully I’ll take the time to work out the best way to use WordPress blogging and make Finbar On Tour a better, more homely place – like working out how to make the picture at the top more ‘me’.
I’ve also noted in the past few weeks how some of my long time friends & contacts have been blogging too, so I’ll try to take a chance to update my list of blog buddies so that you’ve got an opportunity to read and browse their online offerings as well.
So, here’s to the future; but Finbar is still on tour and still online.
