Story Blog

Codine's off for the moment, but if you haven't read 'Turning Stones' it's still up there - free read!

How tedious is the pixel punch-up invariably involved in setting up a new blog. As a protest to the Google Chrome blackmail Blogger’s waging (wielding power over comments posting), I set up a Wordpress blog instead for my new story-bites site. But they just assume everyone in the world is absolutely fine with html programming, PLUS to alter the font size of a template you have to purchase additional stuff! (Someone please correct me if they know I’m wrong.) I seem to have hit the proverbial brick wall. So it’s probably going to be another Blogspot one, and we’ll see how it goes.

Went to Neve’s today, and the kids played while I spent most of my time drooling over their nice house. They probably had to go round with a mop afterwards. Neve is due to come for her usual Monday playdate tomorrow but it’s looking slightly dubious – Lara’s gone downhill again for the evening and now has a temp again. The two of them haven’t been top form. Plus it’s pissing it down.

Did I mention I got another shortlister? Short story this time. They haven’t finished selecting yet so it could even go further. May’s subs are turning out to be quite productive. No story link unless it gets picked for the top spot but hey, it's a name in the list.

    Congrats on the shortlisting, and vibes again to the mites! Guess this won't come through again though ...

    So - here's the feedback: after a refusal to accept a Google account profile, there came an unexpected acceptance of an anonymous comment ... ah, these cyber critters have a mind of their own, cannot be helped.

    Hm, interesting. I'm trying this one in Internet Explorer 9, Anonymous.... see what happens...

  4. OK so IE9 with a profile didn't work (just took me round the usual), now trying with 'name' and url.

  5. That one worked like a dream! No rigmarole at all, straight to it. I'd recommend that, the option at the bottom of the list just above 'Anon'. Mind you the W&W use Firefox and I think they're OK posting, so perhaps that's OK too. Of course if you already use Google Chrome you won't have any hassle.
