A Lightbulb Moment!

I think WordPress had a little too much alcohol last night, because it doesn’t seem to be firing on all cylinders today. I’ve been catching up on my reading, but on most of the posts I read I was unable to ‘Like’ as the button constantly sat at loading. I’ve also noticed that likes and pictures numbers do not tally, so obviously something internally is a little askew. I am sure it will sort itself out.

followed-blog-200-1xThe first good news of the year happened last night at 3am when I went to bed, steady on you with the dirty mind, I meant I finally got my little 200 Likes badge from WordPress. See, for all those who doubted me it just proves that if you whinge, moan, beg and bride, you can get what you want! Thank you to all those who helped make it happen.

The second piece of news is that in just 105 more views I will have reached 20, 000. That’s quite a milestone and I would love to say that it’s all to do with my scintillating charm wit and personality. Sadly I think it’s more to do with the worlds shameless addiction to the game Candy Crush and the fact that I chose to write about it. None the less, I am still as happy as a big happy thing :)

The New Year and a chance conversation got me thinking about the things I want to achieve in 2014. Parts of the conversation centered around the fact that many of us wished things had been different in 2013 and in some cases that we had a life other than the one we were living. That one I could emphasise with.

Although I may not have the most exciting life, which in turn means I don’t have many exciting and wondrous tales to blog about, one thing I have been blessed with is a fairly active imagination. This last year, through various challenges I was drawn into the world of fiction, and I discovered I liked it. There is a certain freedom about being able to write exactly what you want under the guise of fiction and imagination. So I’ve had an idea, in fact I did so much thinking today my brain hurts.

My intention is to introduce another character to my blog, through whom I can vicariously live a life less ordinary. It will hopefully be humorous and entertaining. I did briefly toy with the idea of creating a second blog to undertake this adventure but I love you guys and know that you will all help and critique me if required. It’s only an idea at present, whether I can actually make it work is one thing, and how I integrate it with my blog is another.

So what do you think, good idea or bad? and have you any ideas of a name for my character, I am open to suggestions, in fact I would welcome them after my idea of Fanny Fictitious got shot down in flames.

Over to you…………

  1. Fictitious Franz? ;)

    Sounds like fun. I actually would recommend not starting a new blog until you’re a bit comfortable with the character. Juggling blogs can be difficult….


  2. I’ve not been completely happy with WordPress either lately . . . I know they’ve been working on their next major release and a lot of my problems stem from the apparent changes they’re making, like you can’t approve your pings from the notification menu anymore. They need to shake out all those bugs!


    • I’m not going to complain to much, it’s a free service and for that we get rather a lot. But still, yes, it is annoying when all cylinders are not firing. They need to feed the furnaces a few more brussel sprouts lol


      • Ha ha, right? At least you’d get more out of it (oh my god I love brussels sprouts)! But yeah, you’re right – for a free service we do get quite a bit; but if we were to pay that $100 a year for their premium whatsit with the domain and the custom themes and whatnot, the tools don’t change for mobile . . . and so then we’re paying for something that just isn’t cutting the mustard, because every other blogging platform has a ton of apps that work with it, and WordPress has a paltry few – none that are free except for its own, and the whole reason I’m really picky about it is this: the last app had a crap-ton of good reviews – people who raved over it; then somebody bought it and removed it from the app store. I’ll give you three guesses as to who that was, and the first two don’t count – so they took that away from us. What’s more, is they took away our ability to approve pingbacks from the notification stream and made it necessary to go to the admin page via Safari to do that. Then we have to actually approve them before we can see them, because nowhere I have ever clicked recently has taken me to the actual page to look it over before I approved the pingback. That’s an issue if you’re paying, but you’re right to say that a free service leaves little to disparage.


      • We’ve been all moved since the 3rd, and unpacking as we are able since I’m back to work now. Had cable and Internet installed yesterday but the Internet is not really acting right. This morning I can’t get the router to connect!


      • I consider it when that happens – it seems the Internet has a bad habit of going out in the early morning, which I suspect means they’re either working on it somewhere or my router isn’t a morning person.

        And this is me confused, because now it’s just peachy.
