Laughing at some of the tweets this morning since Facebook went offline for half an hour. It’s like the world doesn’t know what to do with itself.
Is it a bad habit to check your Facebook page first thing in the morning rather than, say, reading the news? I tend to have a quick look to see if anything interesting is happening locally and then go about my day.
Today though, I wasted an hour of my time looking at Twitter and Google and ITV and BBC and The Guardian to see what was going on with the Facebook outage. Ridiculous. I see a few people suggesting that productivity will go up when in fact it gets worse since everyone’s racing to Tweet about it instead.
I had forgotten that this blog existed! When I set it up way back when I had intended, of course, to keep regular posts going and no doubt got sidetracked with other things (studying, getting a job, running a part-time business and all that).
I’d never used WordPress when this started and now that I’ve been building fully-fledged websites with custom themes for a few years, it feels weird to figure out the limitations of wordpress.com as a simple blogging platform without any domain name attached to it.
Thinking back, I remember being frustrated that I couldn’t position an image properly or change the styles or anything else that involved CSS so it will be interesting to see what you can do now on the wordpress.com pages.
