No, don't panic, Noreen and I are not about to up sticks and decamp of the wilds for Nether St Nowhere.
This weblog is going to be on the move.
I've been toying with the idea for some time and have resisted it because I didn't want to move yet again. But the time has now come to move onto Wordpress hosted on my own, already existing, domain — to integrate the blog and my personal website more closely.
Yes, that means I have to do everything for myself, which in some ways is a pain. But in other ways it gives me far more control. And means I am not beholden to Blogger's, Google's or "central" Wordpress's ever more restrictive T&Cs.
I don't yet know exactly how soon I'll make the switch over as I'm still refining and testing the new blog. I hope it will be sometime in the next week or two. But you can already set up your access to the new site if you wish. The new weblog will be at
There's not much there yet except a few test posts, but that means you can also have a play and try to break it. And you should be able to set up your new subscriptions etc. — I hope not to have to change anything more in that area.
When I do the switch I hope to be able to import all the posts from here onto the new site. And I will post a notice here, with a dynamic redirection if such works on Blogger (I think it does). The look and feel (aka. branding) of the new weblog should be very similar to this.
Meanwhile normal service continues here.
Watch this space for updates.
And thank you all for your support so far.
