❓ Why a new blog?
Well first of all, my friend Pete Jones wafted Bear Blog under my nose and I was quite taken with it's simplicity and ease-of-use (I'm generally okay with most technical things, but I spend all day dealing with tech-issues in my job and don't want to do it at home as well); I'd also been considering pruning my old blog for a while to clean it up a little bit and remove some of the bloat on it.
What finally clinched it though was when I sent through a cancel request to my old blog provider due to lack of tech support, I later worked out the issue and asked them to ignore/cancel the request only for them to suddenly cancel my account after weeks of doing nothing. I could rant and rave about it, but I decided that I'd instead see it as an opportunity to redo the blog and make it a bit more simple. I've not worked out how to transfer my old domain yet, but I'm sure I'll figure it out in time.
📆 Update 1st October 2022
I've now managed to transfer the domain http://www.reddicediaries.com to re-direct to this blog, it's not a perfect solution but it does mean that I can now just focus on this blog (without worrying about Wordpress or any of that stuff) knowing that both http://www.reddicediaries.co.uk and http://www.reddicediaries.com will redirect to this site 👍
