So over the weekend, 28th August, my ventures in the world of blogging turned 1 year old and it’s certainly been an interesting year.
On the 28th August I opened my blogger account and started with this post. It was a humble beginning and only really happened because I was bored. After coming across the wonders of Binary Bonsai I discovered WordPress and K2. Driven by wanting to use this theme I found a blogger template to match it and my blog was soon looking as K2 and wordpress as I could get it to look.
I was soon getting into this blogging business, posting was a bit sporadic and I didn’t really know what I was writing or doing, but I was enjoying it and I came up with posts like these in my moments of madness. As I got further into things I wanted more from my blogging experience. Really I wanted something that I could make my own. So I moved to a free domain at orgfree.com. It was somewhat turbulant. K2 didn’t work with the domain initially and I wasn’t able to do all that I wanted to. Blogging continued though. Sadly those posts are lost as, being the novice I am, I didn’t backup and import the posts when Electric Weekend was born.
Since then I have been on somewhat of a journey. The appearance of this here blog has changed greatly, but I now seem to have settled on a design. It’s not quite finished and we still need to do a few bits on it, but it’s pretty much there.
So onto the next year of my blog. What does it hold for me? Well, hopefully more of whats been and more of God. I am increasingly feeling that my blog can be a way of talking about Jesus and the impact he has had on my life. Not just on how he has impacted the way I live my life, but also the way he has impacted my work and my designs. I have a dissertation to write on the use of Christian symbols and ideas/concepts in advertising and I expect to use my blog to discuss some of this as I go through it all. It’s gonna be an exciting time, so please do keep reading and coming back. This blog is for me primarily, but it would be nice to hear of what you think about it. Please do leave a comment. Here’s to another year of Electric Weekend.
