|The cleaning staff can be quite brutal in their approach to tidying up the blog|
I was honoured this morning to discover that my HeroPress anniversary has been declared an official "beautiful thing" on Clare's internationally-renowned blog of daily positivity, Three Beautiful Things.
In the hope that all the good word-of-mouth publicity yesterday's celebrations garnered will draw some fresh eyes to HeroPress I've given the ol' blog a quick "spring clean".
As I still strongly believe that HeroPress can only really be fully appreciated if viewed on a laptop or other PC, I've deleted all the third-party widgets.
These were - thankfully only very occasionally - spoiling the experience of visiting the site for a minority of visitors.
This way I can focus on using "official" Blogger widgets to create the network of 'rabbit holes' for which HeroPress is rightfully famous, down which your curiosity can lead you to nuggets of geeky trivia you never knew were missing from your life.
|Out of Context No More!|
A number of my image-heavy, picture parade-style, features - including the Sunday cosplay posts and Comics Without Context - have been dropped, but don't worry: Wonder Woman Wednesday isn't going anywhere!
Meanwhile some old features - such as the Torn From The Headlines collections of inspirational links and Throwback Thursdays (when I can dig up something new to write about) - are returning to join new features like Who Loves, which takes a look at various elements of the Doctor Who formula that appeal to me.
Although the RPG and comic book content might not be as voluminous as it has been in the past, it will still be here. I haven't abandoned these areas of my geekdom, just reprioritised them.
Pithy film and television reviews will, of course, continue to pop up as well as the usual sharing of news on things coming down the pike that catch my eye, so that means movie trailers, key comic book announcements, Big Finish audio drama reveals etc
Not everything, mind you, just items that speak to me personally that I think might be of interest to others.
I, of course, always welcome constructive feedback on my nonsense: that's what the 'comments' box below is for.
Its use helps perpetuate the sense of community that I believe blogging is all about.
