It’s been a long, long time since I blogged for proper and getting hooked on Twitter has spurred me on to get blogging again – 140 characters just isn’t enough…

Previously I’ve used for my blogging needs but publishing it on my own server – this really annoyed me as there were not only more chances for things to go wrong while Blogger was FTP-ing the files to my site but also Blogger had this wonderful policy that if you used your own hosting you couldn’t use any of the (then) new fancy features that were added around 2004. I carried on using it simply because I’d got used to it… Shear laziness I know!

My last blog ran from February 2005 until February 2008  and spanned 4 jobs (Leeds Uni, Nektar Therapeutics, Dole Dosser, – feel free to read it here: It’s been almost 18 months since I last officially blogged. Now I’ve opted to use the mighty WordPress which I’m more than happy with after fiddling for just over an hour. So, expect some changes over the next week or so while I experiment with new plugins, widgets and themes and also get my head around what categories, sub categories and tags to use!
