Often I get writers block, sometimes it last for days, othertimes weeks. When I emerge with new inspiring ideas they fall in one of three categories.
- Something useful often techical - these sorts of posts often end up as articles like my recent 10 useful mac tips article. If I'm lucky these sorts of posts go all around the net getting me a few hundred thousand new visitors.
- Rants - these posts not unsimilar to this one are highly sarcastic, humorous fast paced and often hard to follow. Phrases such as 'much love' are used and more recently photos of Gordan Ramsay saying 'Done' (like he does in the fword).
- Unfinished posts - I often start writing top X lists only to write the first three or four and run out of good ideas. Either I fill it with a few lame entries or give up for another day.
I guess what I'm trying to find out is how does your writing style change depending on your mood and inspiration? In this sense is writing a blog different to say writing for a newspaper or magazine?
I've been using Twitter for a couple of months now, it's a mostly pointless service that I keep going back to. Some days I can think of lots to write but most days I can't think of anything. I think I'm trying too hard to post something useful or interesting rather than just something random.
I'm following a number of people now, some of them post generally interesting stuff thats happening others post crap.
I'm happy to announce that the Drupal port of Comment Luv is now available for Drupal 6.
Comment Luv for Drupal 5x has also been updated fixing a number of issues from the initial release.
Many thanks to Lomz for his hard work in updating the module.
When someone posts a comment on your site Comment Luv attempts to find their latest blog post and add the title and link to the bottom of their comment. Comment Luv is great for attracting people to comment on your blogs and a great way to build back links to your site.
Today I'm pleased to announce the all new ImAFish theme - ImAFish 10.3 - Kipper. We decided it was time for a change from the plain white and red so we have gone for an underwater look.
Kipper has been in development for the past two months and features a new blue theme with rounded boxes.
About a month ago we spent the weekend redoing my garden. It was my first step into gardening but with the help of a few friends we achieved a lot!
The garden before with the bike shed, smaller patio and side plants.
Laura takes a break from making tea.

Many thanks for everyone that helped including Wayne, Benjie and Brantford.
