My regular reader will know that the A Bit About Britain website has received a little makeover. Some things were not working as they should before, but they should do now. The site also looks a bit different, though it still contains most of the original rubbish. The Home Page, in particular, has been changed a great deal. I hope it showcases the range of drivel and information available, and that the way it is organised facilitates easy navigation.
Amazingly, the change (or ‘refurbishment’ as I like to call it) went relatively smoothly. All the trades were coordinated well and, despite some nervousness, there was minimal downtime. Of course, no plan survives contact with the enemy so, inevitably, some things don’t look quite right yet. I will work my way round those. The intention is to make further changes to the site in the months ahead.
Once I’ve completed the post-project snag list, I’ll get on with some new material. You’re not holding your breath, are you? Don’t.
Meanwhile, if you have 5 minutes, or need help getting to sleep, please have a bit of a digital rummage through the website. If you think something doesn’t work, please drop me an email via the contact page. Please do not put it in a public comment! Similarly, if you think something could be more betterer, let me know – yes, you’ve got it, via the contact page.
While I’m about it, apologies to any of the many excellent bloggers I follow, and who happen to be reading this, for not visiting their sites as often as I’d like to. It doesn’t mean you’re not loved.
Finally, some people previously got in touch to say that their comments had not appeared after they clicked ‘publish’. It is not necessary to follow A Bit About Britain to leave a comment after an article (though I really think people should, don’t you?). However, aside from technical reasons way above my paygrade, there are only 3 reasons why a comment will not show up:
- You are commenting for the first time using a particular IP address which hasn’t yet been approved;
- You have included a link in your comment;
- The comment is considered offensive, inappropriate, senseless, or is obviously some kind of spam.
In the case of 1 or 2, your comment is held until approval and should appear eventually. Links deemed inappropriate are removed. In the case of 3, please don’t do it again.
Thanks for reading and following.
All the best
