Job searching with social media – Day 1

For the past few months I have been looking for a new job, as well as working on updating my CV and all the other things that come with it. Up until yesterday I was unable to utilise social media in my job search, as I was on a contract pending renewal and I didn’t […]

A worrying event for a blogger

In all the years I’ve been online I’ve had some bad reactions from people that disagreed with me online or simply wanted to annoy me on Xbox Live. Luckily, with having taken so much of my online identity ‘offline’ to Reading Tweetups and the like, I’ve not experienced anything bad so far. There were a few […]

Online identity

It somehow came up in a conversation tonight on how long I’ve been on some sites and realisation kind of hit. will be five years old in September with currently about 560 posts and at least one post a month in that time. cat on tumblr will be three years old in April with […]

So it’s been a bit quiet on here.

This is the first time in eleven days that I’m using my laptop. It’s not even been switched on once in the meantime. There are several reasons for it: I’m still quite busy both with work and socially. For example this week’s Reading Tweetup. I haven’t got the internet at home. Which doesn’t bother me. […]

About the CSS upgrade

For the next few days or weeks this blog might look a little different, or rather theme-less, as one of the paid upgrades I’m using is about to expire. As I don’t currently have a PayPal account for reasons I will not go into as it will just make me too angry, I was unable […]

Post revisited

I wrote a blog post in November last year which summed up a few reasons on how my usage of online media has changed over the years due to necessity rather than by my own wishes [which was also linked to with a great post!]. It received several comments which I didn’t reply to at […]

To boldly go where no one else is [yet]?

I’ve been blogging on and off since 2003 when I moved to the UK for good. That blog didn’t survive very long and I’ve deleted its content in 2004 when I realised I wasn’t all that comfortable with it any more. Having had a very bad experience with a colleague who proceeded to almost stalking […]

This blog is now three years old!

Just realised that I missed the third birthday of this blog which was on September 4th. Come to think of it, I believe I may have missed the 1st and 2nd birthdays, too.. I’m not around on here as much as I’d like to be these days, but I will definitely carry on using it […]

@Xelis is awesome, just look at this awesome #TwitLight banner!

I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve told @Xelis how awesome he is. He is one of the most talented graphic designers I’ve come across, he’s made me many signatures for forums and headers so far, including the one that’s currently on my blog. Oh and he also came up with a brilliant […]

#TwitLight, Handwriting and other things

It’s been about a month since I’ve started temping at the cafe and I really like it so far. I have never met as many crazy people in one place before, but this is made up by some of the amazing staff, one of which I have met several times outside of work. The early […]

New look, again.

It’s that time of year again where I feel that it’s time for a new blog theme, after all the last change was in October! has added many themes in the last years, but seeing that I’ve got the CSS upgrade I want to make the most of it. I’ve spent a lot of […]

Happy Birthday to ‘cat on tumblr’!

My tumblr blog, ‘cat on tumblr’ is now exactly one year old! Go me!

Sites that I visit on a daily basis

Lately I have been looking at changing my online experience and more so consolidating more things into fewer sites which really just makes it sound like I’m talking about a loan on daytime TV! In order to look at where I spend my time online I’ve monitored my online activity over a week with Google’s […]

Procrastination at it’s finest!

That’s a list of things I wanted to get done on this blog today ranging from sorting out some pages, clearing up the sidebar, transferring more content from cat on tumblr and creating new pages. How many of the things listed on that piece of paper have I actually done? That’s right, none of them. […]

Apologies to all RSS readers

I’m currently in the process of importing posts from other places to this blog so you will most likely see them come up in the RSS. Sorry!

Coincidentally.. [and something about laziness]

None of the people that were the cause of the last two blog posts have reacted to it, but I’ve managed to have a whole lot of other people apologise to me for some reason. It’s also not, as Ian‘s suggested, related to Twitter at all and can outright say it’s no one that follows […]

Happy Nikolaus 2008!

This is pretty much the perfect time to get a blog post in as I can’t just ignore my tradition of the last years by not posting something today. Last year’s post and the post from 2006 are still on the internet, the others long since deleted with my previous attempts to blog. I’m finding […]
