I’m in the middle of updating my websites, not least so that they work on tablets and mobile telephones so that you can read them on buses and in the bath*. I’ve done this site, and have now completed my cycling cartoons site too. I have to say that I’m finding it quite an enjoyable exercise. Next on the list is CartoonChurch.com, a rather larger undertaking owing to the tinkering that has happened over the last 8 years. Updates are also needed to all these sites for security reasons, as I have learnt the hard way that one needs to keep on top of these things to avoid all manner of perils.

I’ve been receiving a bit of help on how to run a business on the internet, and so this seemed like a good first step. Hopefully other improvements will follow.

As I’m using WordPress is is fairly straightforward to change the theme of the site to change how it looks. The image above is one of the themes I have been playing around with – I used that one on the cycling cartoons site in the end. If you like the look of these WordPress themes they are based on the Genesis framework** by Studiopress. The particular themes are from the ‘community’ section, but there are lots of great ones to choose from.

*Don’t read websites in the bath

**This link makes me money if you buy anything using it – just to be upfront about such things.

  1. Perhaps you could devise a contraption to safely suspend a tablet above the bath such that it is not in danger of falling into the said bath. And with a mechanism to retract it automatically when you pull the plug out?

  2. Richard – That does sound like a good idea. It would have to come with lots of disclaimers saying I was not responsible for anything.

    Liz – I wouldn’t want to encourage such things really. I have heard it is terribly addictive, which could lead to wrinkled toes, etc.

  3. It is very very addictive Dave. I downloaded when I was told I would have to rest for 3 months, a week later when they decided I didnt have a fractured pelvis after all, I was addicted. I need to delete it really. 🙁
