Graffiti Wall Art 2 - Photo by Joshua Jaikens

Art on the Walls or Graffiti – You choose

Joshua has many interesting tastes in art which has done him well for his art and design studies at college. He’s going back to college next week but at a higher level then he expected. His results were very good. Well done Joshua. Before he goes back he has a project to do which involves graffiti and the use of words. So he got me to take him to a particular spot were there are some very good examples. Here are a few of the photos he took. Some of these show real talent and are even done by people Joshua knows.

These are no small canvas’s. The pictures show designs at least 12 foot long. Next to them is one of the busiest roads in Halifax, so they get noticed by a lot of people travelling in and out of Halifax. The amount of work on these can be seen by the number of empty spray paint cans on the ground around them. You have to be careful what you’re standing on.

Change of Hosting – A Good Move

I enjoyed my fling with WordPress.com but that affair came to a quick end. Don’t get me wrong it really has it advantages. Being completely free, it proved itself to be a great introduction to WordPress by the people who know the most about it.

Setting up my site was fun but I came to wondering a couple of things. Firstly how do I get the domain I currently own to work with it and, secondly how do I use all those plugins people talk about that can make your WordPress site into something special with little effort?

As it turns out the answer to the first question is a simple “that will be £9 please”. In an effort to make a little money out of people using WordPress.com for free, is to charge for the little things of course. They actually stop you from redirecting to your site with domain forwarding unless you pony up for the extra domain mapping option. All the extra options are available in the shop section that sits in the dashboard of site created in WordPress.com. I was tempted but the second question I had, was the one point that made me look elsewhere.

My First Post – How Will You Do Yours?

Everybody has a hard time thinking of what to put for their first blog entry. For those of us with a Facebook account, you may have a hard time remembering what your first post was. What has Facebook got to do with blogging? Because Facebook is Facebook right? Well it seems to have grown that way and in comparison to other blog sites, Facebook is head and shoulders above them and another type of platform again with application servers (games, etc.) and a whole lot more besides.
