First post on my new blog

So here it is, my first post on a new blog. There’s a bit of pressure!

I’ve put in a bit more of an effort on this blog already compared to what I ever did with my old one. My “About Me” page actually has a photo of me, and isn’t just filled with bad jokes. I made my own custom header, which actually was taken from a site offering free ones, then downloaded a font and added my blog address – woo look at me all technical like!

This is going to be my home for many years to come, so it’s about time I actually started personalising the thing.

So what’s the plan?

There will be a lot of things that have carried over from the new site. I’m still doing my 52 in 52 lists, which I will be finalising and publishing today. I’ve also started back on the photo a day for 2013, so there will be tons of imagery getting around as well.

I’m also focused on making this place a lot more personal. I very much lost my soul searching posts that I used to write, and I loved that about my old blog. I always had somewhere to really speak my mind, and put myself out there to promote discussion with others. Previous years saw me lose touch with who I am, and I stopped exploring and exposing my mind. I want to get that back, so personal development will also be a major part of this blog.

In short, my blog is going to be about the fun times, the contemplative times, and a heck of a lot of stories along the way.

I hope you will join me, it’s going to be one heck of a ride.
