Can you pack your suitcase? We’re about to move house.
These past few weeks I’ve been working on my new site EG | Social. I’ve been having all sorts of fun with hosting and migration and modifying WordPress themes and technical stuff. I’m almost ready to launch (you can see the work-in-progress at EG | Social – and your feedback is very welcome).
I’ve been learning loads about how to modify WordPress themes, using plugins and even tweaking css (!), but there are a few things that haven’t worked the way they are supposed to. As with a lot of learning experiences, sometimes you have to press save, see what happens and then fix it.
One thing I haven’t been able to test is whether I can migrate subscribers and followers. In theory if you have subscribed to my feed, you should notice nothing, but the support forums of WordPress suggest that this is often not the case. I’d like you all to join me on the move – the blog posts will continue as usual – so I’ll ask you to be patient while I work everything out.
As a sweetener and early Christmas present, here’s a mixtape of winter songs for you. Right click on the image above and download Scarves & Gloves Part 7 – 45 mins of HappySad music for your winter walks. If you want more of that sot of thing, you can fill your Christmas stockings with parts 1-6 of the Scarves & Gloves series.
The next time you hear from me, it should be coming from EG | Social.
Well, that zipped past pretty quickly…
As some in London woke up to a light dusting of snow this morning, it is truly time for scarves and gloves and Scarves and Gloves Part 6.
While the year isn’t quite done with yet, I’d like to thank you for your support and hope you have einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr as our German pals say.

It’s almost Christmas and it actually snowed today. What better time to indulge in a little (oxymoron alert!) festive melancholy.
Here’s part 3 of my seasonal Scarves & Gloves series. The first two parts came out in 2007, and it takes a good two years for decent Christmas music to find its way onto my iPod.
So, put on the fire, your most ridiculous socks and bed down for some bittersweet Xmas vibes.
And I hope you have a wonderful holiday!
