Welcome to IRL and 2008

Posted on January 1st, 2008 in Changelog by Andy

Welcome to 2008 and my new blog, Absoblogginlutely! – IRL, which stands for In Real Life. I have had several people mention that my normal blog, Absoblogginlutely!, often gets too technical which makes them less interested in the blog but they still want to know what is going on in my life. Also, I don’t really want to clutter up Absoblogginlutely! with “frivolous” content such as funny Youtube videos or cat pictures. I am making this a new blog as Absoblogginlutely! has good Google juice and will still be my main blogging focus. No old content will be migrated across from the original blog as most of you will have already read it already. The design of this blog will also change, especially in the first couple of months as I find new WordPress widgets and fiddle with the layout. Hopefully most of you will be using a RSS reader so will not be affected by the layout changes – however take the time to checkout the website occasionally to see what is new.

For those of you who wish to read both blogs I intend to create a couple of various feeds that merge both of the blogs and some of my other content such as Flickr, YouTube etc.

Incidentally – how many of you read this on the website as opposed to a feedreader? Would a post on how to read this in a feedreader be useful? Do you know what a feedreader is?
