A few more tweaks

I’m in the process of writing the next post in my series about music and the internet, but it’s proving to be a bit of an epic. It is probably better to spread the posts out anyway. I doubt many people want to read my ranting and raving about the music industry between Christmas and […]

A new look

Yes, I’ve decided to give the blog a new look again. I couldn’t wait to get this up, but it’s not quite finished. I still need to do a few tweaks here and there. (Surprise surprise, it looks a bit guff in Internet Exploder.) But it’s quite late now and I can’t bring myself to […]

Hats off to The Daily Mail

I don’t say this often, but I have to hand it to the Daily Mail. And I’m not being sarcastic! Because their website is really rather good. Last week some journalists got all excited because the latest ABCe figures came out, telling them just how many people are reading their words. Marcus Warren from The […]

Watch out — I have begun tinkering

After an astonishingly tinker-free summer, I have made a few changes on the blog. Perhaps the most important is the reintroduction of the Best of page, which I hinted at a couple of months ago. This is just to attract attention to some of the notable posts I have written in the past. There is […]

I am a prude

Actually, I’m not. But I had forgotten about CSS Naked Day, and it would be a bit silly just to take part for half of the day. Anyway, I think (hopefully) this blog works fairly well without the CSS. If you want a look at this blog naked, I know at least that in Firefox […]

vee8: Formula 1 liveblogging / Twittering

Contrary to the post I wrote yesterday morning, this week is actually a very good week for me and new web-ventures! Yesterday I moved Scottish Roundup to its new home. Now I have gone ahead and created that Twitter account for Formula 1 liveblogging. This kind of kills two birds with one stone. The obvious […]

Guardian oldie

My nosy self spotted somebody reading the Guardian Weekly in the train today. I noticed that it hasn’t been updated to the current design of The Guardian which must be well over a year old now. How come?

Look what I gave the blog for Christmas

Some new clothes! They still need to be ironed a bit though. I’ll sort out all the little niggles over the coming days. What do you think? Update: Finally getting round to updating this post, which I meant to do yesterday. It’s crazy. It’s Christmas and I’m still running all over the place with no […]

Over and over

James Higham, in his latest Blogfocus, has written probably the best testimonial this blog has had: One of the Scotsblog Battalion, Edinburgh Coy, Doctor Vee has one of the best laid out blogs in the sphere and his comments system is so pleasant to use – in fact his whole blog invites you back over […]

The structure of blogs

I recently read a few interesting articles about the way blogs are structured, all via Weblog Tools Collection. The articles made me think a bit about the conventional layout of a blog. Is it always best to have posts displayed in reverse chronological order? The suggestion made by some is that it is a bit […]
