This is my blog, a creative outlet to mess around and play with as well as a place that logs my thoughts and inspirations.

1 Year on

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.

  1. Inter­est­ing. I’ve been blog­ging for about a year as well and I start­ed out on blogspot too. Fun­ny how far we’ve come in a year, isn’t it?

  2. It is. Although I do say you have come a lot fur­ther than I have. But I’m get­ting there slow­ly, I just need a more reg­u­lar post­ing pat­tern I feel. Thanks for the help on my design by the way!! 😀
