All Caught Up…


This post is a catch up of sorts and also kind of a pseudo re-launch of this website / portfolio / blog of mine. I’ve been a little bit confused and a rather busy little bee of late, my own fault in both cases ๐Ÿ˜œ

OK so what have I been up to, well I had an idea of what I wanted to do with my online presences but was unsure of the best way to go about it for me. I had given myself a brief, I wanted to be able to get my photos and art out there on the web for plenty of people to see, but at the same time keep my personal friendly socialising kind of thing going and I wanted it to be fairly straight forward and not too complicated ๐Ÿ˜โ€ผ๏ธ

So like the proverbial bull in a china shop ๐Ÿฎ I started playing with all kinds of platforms designed for photography and art, I also created both a page and a group on Facebook connected to my personal profile. Of course I let this all get out of hand and found myself with sites / platforms coming out of my ears, it was far from simple, it was a mess and utterly confusing ๐Ÿคฏ

I needed to make things simple again, then I thought about having my own website, if I hosted this on then I could have a website that could host a portfolio for my photos and art, I could easily have a blog as well, I could simply share stuff to my fave social medias with ease and there would be space for expanding it in most anyway I wished later, thus this Website / Portfolio / Blog was born ๐Ÿฅณ Of course being me I was in too much of a rush and I published the site before I had it as I wanted it and before the portfolio section was up to date. So I’ve been busy sorting the site out to be just as I want and I’ve been populating the profile with albums (which up to this point I have mistakenly called portfolios, but new ones will be albums from this point forward). So this site is now ready, just how I want it, and I am ready to move forward with it from this point onward ๐Ÿ˜

As for the mass of social media sites and photo / art sites I’ve gathered, well I’m keeping them all โ“โ“ but I’m only really moving forward with my Twitter, Instagram, this site and Facebook (but just my FB profile, the page and group are deceased). The others are just in the background, they exist, I have them, I’m just not really using them much (or in some cases at all) I just feel I may, at some point in the future regret deleting them ๐Ÿค”โ€ผ๏ธโ‰๏ธ

So there we have it, all up to date, I have my favourite social medias, I have a platform for getting my photos and art out to folk, and it’s all pretty simple and straightforward, just as I had originally wanted before having an enormous brain fart.

If any of you have any suggestions or ideas for improving this site then please let me know in the comments, there may well be things I haven’t thought about, also if you spot any problems with the site or how it works also please inform me in the comments.

Pop’s Pic’s Website…


I’ve been a little bit absent from my various platforms (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) the last couple of days because I’ve been working on this website, well actually it’s a website, portfolio and blog and I’ve been getting it ready for the big wide world, hi big wide world ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

I think it’s pretty easy to get around, check out the menu toward the top of the page, the “HOME” button takes you to the home or landing page of the website, the “BLOG” button will take you to all the blog posts that I’ve published, and the “PORTFOLIO” button will take you to my Art and Photography portfolios (the portfolios are still being populated but there’s already a fair bit there to see). Following those buttons you will also see buttons to take you to my social media pages ๐Ÿ˜Š

I would be interested in any comments, feedback or thought’s you may have, thank you…

Anyway, thanks for visiting and pleaseย โ€œBe Well, Be Safe, Be Happyโ€ย  ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–

Ulverston Canal walk

Journal, Photography

Went for a walk earlier today with Jonathan along the side of #UlverstonCanal, plenty of folk walking and fishing ๐Ÿ˜€

This was following a visit to #LittleBeasties pet shop in #Ulverston to get a new lamp and some substrata for my #tortoisetable which requires a clean this week.

The staff in Little Beasties were pleasant, friendly and very helpful and of course all Covid safety protocols were in place ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’–
