America: It's like Britain, only with buttons
- Ringo Starr
Ok so after only half a day of footling about with domain names and html, I managed to not only bag the domain www.mygrumbles.com (which, I feel, is a pretty cool domain) but more importantly create a button for my blog!
The domain thing was actually pretty easy, I just bought it from Google, biggest surprise was that noone had already bagged it!
The button thing was a LOT harder. Back when I was last writing code, java was an island in Southeast Asia, and the web was that thing stretched across the door of my garden shed.
Fortunately however, in one of my more enlightened moments, sometime back in October 1988, I started a process that resulted in me today having access to my own blogging and html technical support guru. How far sighted of me was that?
So a big thank-you goes out to Laura Jane at Needles Pins and Baking Tins for providing me with the button code (as well as numerous quilts, cushions, mug rugs and delicious and no doubt nourishing puddings). Some investments really do pay off!
Here's a pic.
I think she was just working out where to put the href tags.
