Welcome to the new look Gidday from the UK .
After more than six years of tap-tap-tapping away, I’ve finally decided to relocate my witterings to a brand new home. Six years is about the longest time I’ve lived in any particular place of abode so with hindsight, one might see the inevitability of this move as a result of some subconscious alarm clock. Or not.
Anyway, here we are – courtesy of WordPress – with a new url: giddayfromtheuk.com.
As with all new chapters, it’s an opportunity to take the best of the familiar and to explore some new horizons. The most obvious change is to Gidday’s look and feel. The masthead photo – of Trafalgar Square – was taken on my daily commute: standing on the corner of Northumberland Avenue waiting for the pedestrian lights to change on a brilliantly blue-sky summer morning. I love its unusual perspective, of seeing the possibilities of the world – it seems – from Admiral Nelson’s point of view.
It’s also a chance to rethink, reshape and recraft based on what the last six years have taught me inside and outside the blogosphere.
There’ll be a myriad of reflections on the world – opinions, musings, questions about the things I see, hear, read on my way through life.
You can also expect more of those everyday ‘nows’ that remind me that life is filled with millions of these tiny, poignant moments and is all the better and richer for it.
And you can still expect a healthy dose of Aussie irreverence. After all, it wouldn’t be Gidday from the UK without it.
So thanks in advance to my Gidday-ers: those of you who’ve supported my blog in the past and may migrate from the old to the new digs with me. And a big Gidday welcome if you are new to Gidday from the UK.
I hope you enjoy this next chapter and as always, I’d love to hear from you.
