Bit On The Side

Other Bits

First Post. Take Two.

Hi guys and welcome to my first post!

Except that this isn’t my first post.

I’ll try to explain.

One of my new years resolutions was to start and publish my first blog post before the end of January 2017. In order to make this happen I had a lot of set-up work to complete.
The first thing I had to do was buy a laptop. I’ll leave the story about the “joy” of attempting to partake in Black Friday sales for another time…
After finally buying a laptop I had a whole lot of technical issues -what fun it was to spend hours on the phone with Currys and Microsoft! From here I have A LOT to learn about this whole hosting/domains/publishing/editing/site design thing so this hasn’t been a speedy process.

I did write my first post and when I went to publish it I had some issues with my domain hosting. As in I lost I my blog! I know, how embarrassing. I’m sure most people are tech-savvy enough that this wouldn’t happen to them. But it did and obviously my reaction was one of panic.
This was all the night before we were flying to Bulgaria so I reached out for tech help but wasn’t around to check when they got back to me. Which is why I’m doing my first post, take two.

I have a lot of plans for this blog, and what I want it to be like, but it’s really not the end of the world that so far it’s not exactly going to plan.

Side note: the weekend in Sofia gave me some food for thought and I plan to try some Bulgarian recipes soon…food and lots of other bits coming soon!
