Finally... after years of shall I shan't I? ...or more accurately how the bloody hell do you set this thing up?- I have dipped my toe into the blogging waters with this, my virgin post.
Don't expect too much yet- to be honest my prime motivation has been to just get rid of the irritating 'Welcome to the World' message which sits silently goading you into filling the blank screen with text.
I have spent the past two days setting up my first writer's website which I am about to unleash on the world. I am sure my efforts could have been replicated by a 10 year old in half an hour, but I have learned now by trial and error how to set up a website on the somewhat unsteady-sounding but excellent (and free) Weebly platform.
Although I have no idea what to do yet with metadata, keywords and other SEO guff, I do have some half-decent content on something which passes for a website. I have also learned how to create a hyperlink as I think this link to Weebly's page proves. Impressive huh?
If you have received this post then you are one of the chosen few to whom I have entrusted an advance peek at the website. Have a look round and see what you think and drop me a line with any comments, no matter how rude or offensive. I'm not easily insulted I was a cop for 30 years (see picture above).
OK Now I've broken the ice, I'll get back sharpening up the website ( is that the right verb?)and populating it with some more stuff which I hope will interest you.
In anticipation of seeing you here again soon, when I will be writing a proper blog..but in the meantime ...Welcome to my World. Grrrrrr!
