My homepage (at its www. address anyway) is temporarily down as I move it behind a CDN (which will hopefully mean way faster loading times for all visitors outside North America, where my host’s servers are – and maybe even faster load times within North America as CDN speeds are better than shared hosting I’m sure). For some reason I did not realise before I started that this was a change that could take hours to propagate, and now I’m just bubbling with the anxiety that I did something wrong and won’t know it for days 🙈 At any rate, if there’s some post of mine that you’re burning to see right now and it can’t wait ‘til tomorrow, you can see it on the CDN’s own subdomain at jayeless-net.b-cdn.net.
FYI: I’m in the process of bringing my blog “in-house” at my root domain. I still haven’t finished setting things up there, but even once I have I see myself staying very active in the Micro.blog community ☺️ It’s a great thing about MB – you can host wherever you like, but by adding your RSS feed to your MB account you can participate on the site as an equal citizen.
If you want to read more about my reasoning, I’ve posted that on the “new” blog already. Otherwise, the experience of anyone following me on Micro.blog should remain pretty much exactly the same? But I have a lot of work yet to do to bring my “new” blog up to scratch. So, bear with me as I get things up and running! 🚧🔨🏗
📚 It’s been so long since I’ve actually read a whole book at this point, I think because I started one I’m not really into, and I keep casting about for things to do that are not reading it. Time to start reading Becky Chambers’ A Closed and Common Orbit to break the cycle. 🚀
📷 For today’s photoblogging challenge, the day 6 prompt is sport. Viv and I go for different AFL teams, and nearly every year (until last year, for obvious reasons…) we try to go to the Sydney Swans vs Essendon Bombers game. This is us at the SCG one freezing night in May 2019.
📷 Day 5 of the photoblogging challenge has the easiest prompt… pets! 🤣 For this one, have an old photo of my cat Gidget and my parents’ dog Gizmo. They may be different species but they’re still BFFs, and have been since Gidget was about 14 weeks old. 🐱🐶
📷 Day 4’s prompt is layers, which I found a tricky one 🤔 Melburnians are known for our prodigious wearing of layers in the winter, so I went and found a selfie from July. Under this coat I’d have had a jumper or vest and a proper shirt on! Not to mention my multilayered mask 😷
📷 Day 3 of Micro.blog’s photoblogging challenge! Today’s prompt is comfort. For this, I thought I’d share a photo of Gidget, very comfortable snoozing by my side on the couch 😸
