I've started up a blog, just for something to do, something to write. I'm not too happy with the colours, and the header is a work in progress but here it is:

http://retrogameretrospective.wordpress.com/

On another point, Wordpress charge $14.95 a year for the privilege of letting you edit the CSS, so I'm stuck with a theme and a crappy choice of how I use colours. Anyone know of any better blog sites I could perhaps use, or any other bright ideas?

They also charge you about a tenner for domain name redirection, which is why my stuff is still on blogger. Which is a shame, as I like wordpresses tabbed approach :(

Wordpress is crappy...I dunno why people insist on using it.

The missus has a new mum and baby (and dad) walker's blog at:

http://caniwalkmummy.blogspot.com

Not much there yet but we'll be using it as a sort of "good walking guide" for baby-friendly walks around the countryside.

BTW liking the blog DD...one of the things I don't think we do enough of here at AATG is retro gaming retrospectives so if you ever do feel like a bit of cross pollination between your blog and the main page here, that'd be cool.

One of these days, one of these days I'll find some time to do a proper Bioforge Retrospective.

I quite like Wordpress to be honest. The amount you can do with it compared to Blogger is fantastic. Shame the stuff I really want to do costs money, which I don't have right now with this lack of job and all.

If I thought I could make enough money out of it to at least pay for the custom stuff, and the domain redirect I would definitely make a go of it.

I wrote about Splat! today. I'm not entirely happy with it, but I do have a sick, pregnant wife to look after. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Hello.

I've just used iWeb to create a site. Check out the awesomeness of my site name: web.me.com/peteabbey .

Any thoughts on cheap domain names and where to get them?

You can, via the wonders of google apps, set up a free @yourdomain.co.uk email addy too.

You don't care but...
I decided not to subscribe to mobileme after my trial lapsed (resulting in my losing all my contacts and calendar items from my iphone for a day -ha) so have taken the opportunity to refresh my bloggage and stuck my url thingy on there.

It's here if you care to look or subscribe or whatever. Sometimes I say things that are good. Sometimes I don't.
