I’m going to start blogging again.
There. I’ve said it. Out loud. On here. So it’s public, even if it’s not going viral.
Amongst other things, I plan to write about sharing, listening, making time, paying attention, noticing, designing systems, and information architecture.
First up, I’ve updated to using the WordPress 2017 Theme – it plays nicely on all screen sizes. And it looks okay from an accessibility point of view – though the blog title and description may not pass the legibility and/or contrast test, depending on which image appears in the site header.
I’ll probably tweak the theme a little as time goes by.
Despite my neglecting it, the site still gets traffic.
In 2016, according to analytics, three of the most popular posts – arrived at via organic (i.e. Google) search – were:
- William Henry Pratt alias Boris Karloff, 1887-1969 – a photo of his blue plaque in East Dulwich, with over 100 comments from people who believe they might be related to him, and his biographer (from 2005)
- One card-reader fits all for online banking – TL;DR yes, you can use any bank card reader with any bank card (from 2008)
- Traffic lights and inclusive design – a post about not relying on colour alone to denote meaning (from 2010)
