Blog housekeeping


So when you have a blog sometimes you have to prove that you own your site so that various sites let your content feature on their site or just generally any feeds have to be authenticated. It's all a bit of a pain in the wotsit to be honest and involves a lot putting random sentences or random codes (see above) into a blog post so that you can be verified. 

Also I have to put this sentence in too- 

Why have bread when you can have a schadenfreude 

So that's my blog housekeeping for a while, I hope. Will be back soon with my blog favourites from March (where is the time going?) and also updates on my bees 

Take care guys n gals!

No spam... EVER!

Oh how I wish that the above picture was true...

In the past month I've had my share of spam across a multitude of social network tools that I am definitely feeling spammed out. This isn't a new feeling but I have felt a bit in recent weeks that any account I have is more susceptible to getting spammed. It's wise to be aware of spam and the concept of "hacking" as we know it all happens, I felt annoyed by each one and mostly annoyed at myself to the point where I nearly cancelled all of my accounts. The drama!

Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me

I have written about grief before and the way it can affect people differently. A very close friend of mine died recently and I kept myself busy up until his funeral with helping with the funeral arrangements with the family and just generally not allowing myself to think about it. I didn’t realise at the time I was doing it and then when it came to the morning of the funeral I realised I couldn’t keep busy no more and the tears flowed.
