Jeremy Keith was last on in the Insites Tour at the Lighthouse in Brighton on Monday and apart for his slight error in assuming he was the oldest in the room (I beat him by nine years - that’s a lot of kids programmes that only I remember…) he said a few things about blogging that made me think hard. In a world where blogging is being declared dead and people turn to social media his message was that he was proud of his blogging (just coming up to 10 years worth and at an average of 1.75 posts per day I think) and that we should blog anything we think of saying rather than holding back because we think that everyone knows it. He mentioned that those who have advanced knowledge of things tend not to blog about them because the assumption is that everyone else knows what you do. Actually they don’t.
And this resonated with me a lot. I need to blog a lot more - I have this shorts channel for short length pieces rather then long articles (this is turning into an article!) but my articles are supposed to be more thought out and need images with them whereas I designed this channel (literally if you know #eecms) as a thought capture area or as a note area where I can write down stuff I want to read later - the audience is me but you are more than welcome to read.
So that’s it - more output from me like the old days - hopefully less inane than way back then.
Moving a site to new hosting can be fraught with issues. Here is one technique that I find useful when moving to a website to a new hosting server.
