Monday 1 May 2017

Urgh. My site is so ugly. Why is my site so ugly? I should make it look better, make it so it matches the splendour of my original vision (figure 1).

I am going to get straight to work on this. There is nothing more important to me at this point in time.


Tuesday 2 May 2017

I got distracted. But a complete overhaul is clearly required. How long can it take - two, three days, max?

In the meantime I’ll take the site offline so no one is offended by how revolting it looks. Having no website at all will spur me to take immediate action.

Drank SIX APEROL SPRITZES TODAY and ate A KILO OF HALLOUMI oh how I love summer and not having ANYTHING TO DO yaaaaay.

On an unrelated note: I have the strangest feeling I'm forgetting something.


Saturday 1 July 2017

SHIT. My website's been down for TWO MONTHS.

I should make another aperol spritz to help my concentration, the heat has gone straight to my head.


Sunday 2 July 2017

Urrrrrghhhhh very hungover. Where was I. Ah yes. Make the site look better.

To do:

  • Delete ugliness - check

  • Spend money on new domain name - check

  • Create beauty - TBC

  • Write stuff - TBC

  • ‘Promotional’ ‘strategy’ - 2018


Tuesday 18 July 2017

Why has no one made the site look better for me yet? I thought I might get something as part of my CMS changeover, but I guess I’m going to have to make a series of minor but impactful CSS tweaks MYSELF.

You know, not one person seems to have noticed the site was down. I’ll spend a few hours dressing up the holding page, that’ll show them.


SUNDAY 30 July 2017

Productive day today. Designed a new line break.

Note to self: none of the navigation links work yet.


Monday 7 August 2017

This is getting silly now. I WILL have this ready to launch by the end of the week. The line breaks are looking FUCKING BRILLIANT, as is the new Things of the Week post I can picture in my head.

Once I get this Bullet Journal habit tracker sorted we’ll be GOOD TO GO.

Note to self: the domain redirect is broken.


saturday 12 August 2017

Brainwave: a ‘From the Archive’ feature. I have literally tens of posts in my 2010-2016 backcatalogue I can still bear to look at. They just need a new lick of paint and then they’ll be good to go.

First - I’ll motivate myself with six hours of YouTube documentaries about JK Rowling.

For fuck's sake Oprah, you couldn't squeeze in a single question about Dumblewald?


tuesday 15 August 2017

Shit. Forgot to list the archive thing in my Bullet Journal. One more aperol spritz for me today and then I’m off to dig out that Madonna 'Don’t Tell Me' polemic from 2013.


Wednesday 16 August 2017

While I'm at it I may as well exhume my 7 Previously Unsubtitled Lord of the Rings conversations.


Friday 25 August 2017

I think that Things of the Week format I had in my head a few months back looked something a little like this.


Tuesday 29 August 2017

Do people still tweet? I remembered about that Twitter account I set up three years ago and haven't used since. 


Wednesday 30 August 2017

I think this might be my favourite line break, you know.

Thursday 31 August 2017

Followed closely by this one.

Saturday 2 september 2017

Followed closely by... oh, right. Site. Launch it. Gotcha. 


SUNDAY 3 SEPTEMBER 2017

It's live! I can't believe it! Three days of work and three months of procrastination, and it all looks so—

SHIT HALF THE NAVIGATION LINKS STILL DON'T WORK ABORT ABORT ABORT
