A new theme.

Whilst writing “The first post (Part 2)…” this morning, I tried a few different themes for the Tumblr blog, eventually settling on this, from Bill Israel. I love the elegance and simplicity of his designs and colour schemes. Looking through some of the themes for Wordpress, I’ve not found anything that I like yet. Maybe I’ll have to open up Photoshop and create some custom graphics, then brush up on my HTML. Maybe, just maybe, my Tumblr blog will continue.

The first post (Part 2)...

After only three posts - two of which were only photographs, I am seriously looking at migrating the Disjointed Reality blog to Wordpress.

Tumblr is fine, for what it is, but I feel that my needs in the longer term may be best served by Wordpress. I have, therefore, set up an account, and will play with the design and creation tools prior to transferring my content there.

I will keep the Tumblr blog as a place to quickly post scraps of things that interest me, so please keep the URL, and check in regularly to see my updates.

I'll post a link to the new Wordpress blog within the next few days.

The first post

After some time, following a range of blogs, podcasts, Twitter and RSS feeds - contributing to forums, chatting to people all over the world in a variety of ways, the time has come to create a visible online presence.

The first move was to set up a free account with Google Apps; a service which allows the hosting of a web domain, and provides basic web page creation tools. Some of the other features within Google Apps, such as docs and calendar, I will probably not use so much, as they are duplicated in my virtual life by other applications. I’m pleased with the domain I have managed to acquire - indeed I was quite surprised that it was available. At the very least, Google Apps gives me a safe place to park the domain whilst I decide what format it will eventually take. For the time being, I will keep the domain name private, until there is sufficient content to make it worthwhile to go “live”.

I heard of Tumblr a few years ago on the Net@Nite podcast, hosted by Leo Laporte and Amber MacArthur. Of course there are more well known blogging tools available, and maybe I will experiment with a selection of them over time and post my findings. For now, however, Tumblr meets my needs as it is incredibly simple and also has an iPhone app for on-the-go posts.

So, this is the first post. Hopefully there will be many more to come, as I find my way in this disjointed reality. I hope you, the reader will come back and read more of what I find to say.

Thank you for taking the time to make this first visit.
