Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Mission accomplished.

I’m going to cheat slightly for this week’s SoCS post, putting The Accumulator on hold (again, I know) to use Linda G Hill’s prompt to check that my new home is visible to y’all one last time, now that I’m properly ensconced on Return of the Internet Nobody. (I’d like to know, for instance, if your e-mail notification for this post brought you straight here, or if you were redirected by the sticky post on my old blog)

The instruction Linda gave us was;

” “pant.” Use the word “pant” as is, or find a word with “pant” in it and base your post on it. “

Ooookaay, let’s see…

Mission accomplished.

I’ve been a willing participant in SoCS for quite a while and now I’m the new occupant of this lovely new blog, I am panting with excitement at the thought of showing you all round.

It might seem a minor thing, set against the vast pantheon of blogging greats, (and no, I’m not being flippant) and I don’t want to make a big pantomime out of it, (it’s not like it took a fleet of pantechnicons for me to make the move) nor do I want you to think my ego is running rampant, but I’m very pleased with how it’s turned out.

I’m a bit like a baker who, having baked a beautiful cake, goes to admire it occasionally in their pantry, just to remind themselves how good it actually is, maybe adding a few more sprinkles here and there; I’ve been tinkering and tweaking and adding bits and bobs, trying to cram in as much as I can to make it look interesting.

So I hope that (a) you are reading this in the first place, and (b) you like the new surroundings in which you are reading it.

Oh bugger, I forgot all about the prompt…well, there’s no need to be a pantywaist about it, I’m big enough to admit when I’m beaten.

Right, where was I?

So here we are on a brand new blog, which I’ve decided to call Return of the Internet Nobody, because it didn’t appear to be broken, so I didn’t fix it. Well, I did give myself a definite article, by way of a promotion.

The Internet Nobody sounds a bit more important than just being any old nobody and I have been at this blogging lark for over five years now, so I figured I deserved some recognition, even if it was only from myself.

I’m still in the process of tinkering with the overall layout of this blog, so you’ll notice new pages and widgets being added over the next few weeks, because it’s always fun to play with new toys. In fact, the whole point of this post is so I can see what it looks like when I add new content over the top of my bespoke, hand drawn, Twin Peaks-inspired homepage background.

The question of swapping domain names still remains, which I think I shall do when I switch over to this site completely and that blog will revert to its status.

Diary of an Internet Nobody will stay active, albeit at its old address, meaning all the lovely blog posts, photos, short stories, music and video contained therein will still be available for anyone who wants to browse the 900 posts which I published in the last five years or so. I will of course add a permanent link for that blog to this one, when the Big Switchover occurs in the not too distant future.

And I shall be carrying on pretty much as usual here, so you can expect the same regular features, the same rambling posts and improvised experiments in creative writing, photography, video, animation and whatever else I can persuade my phone to let me do.

Oh yes, you can also still expect me to be doing it all in my smartphone.

I have even remembered to optimise the media upload thingies, which is one of those technical terms you learn when you’re a veteran blogger like me. Hopefully I shouldn’t find myself running out of space quite so soon this time round.

Whether I am going to manage to lure all of my 856 followers over here remains to be seen (I’m guessing not) but I hope that, despite my abysmal record at keeping up with other blogs lately, some of you will join me on the next stage of my adventure in cyberspace.

I’m off work until Tuesday now, so I will have plenty of time to fine tune and fiddle with my new playground, meaning you can expect the changeover to come sooner rather than later. I will keep everyone updated over on Diary of an Internet Nobody, so stay tuned.
