A Word from the Editor

It’s been a long, long road, getting this website live. It began life as an idea after I had seen this blog in 2011:


Some of the code, and the initial layout with the easySlider, was lifted from that tutorial.

In the interim, I’ve learned a lot of code, but I’ve never had the time required to properly unpick this site and re-write from scratch, which is what I’d really like to have done. Sophie and I have worked on it in dribs and drabs, and we just needed to get it out there. A lot of the CSS, although validated, is ugly and unwieldy. And somewhere along the line, Twitter changed their widget so that’s still giving validation errors for XHTML 1.0 Transitional, even though it all appears to work just fine... One day it will be coded better. Just not today.
