Diversion: (Welcome new followers)…

Greetings to anyone who has followed this blog in the last couple of weeks or so, it’s good to have you aboard.

The only trouble is, this is no longer an active site and, although I’m delighted that you chose to follow me, you really need to head on over to my lovely new home at Return of the Internet Nobody.

There you’ll find the same mix of regular features and random musings, all in a shiny new layout.

I knew the switchover to my new site, (combined with mapping my old domain name from here to there) would cause some initial confusion, so I’m not surprised a few of you missed the announcement, for which I apologise.

So please go ahead and use the link above to join me at my new location, where normal service has already resumed.

Thanks for you time and I hope to see you all over there soon.

A gentle reminder…

Hello again.

I have noticed there has been a certain amount of understandable confusion, surrounding the switchover from this blog to my new home, Return of the Internet Nobody, with some readers possibly being directed to the wrong site from e-mail notifications.

So this should clarify matters once and for all:

THIS BLOG HAS MOVED TO A NEW LOCATION, BUT HAS KEPT THE SAME DOMAIN NAME – diaryofaninternetnobody.com

All you need to do is to CLICK THIS LINK and re-follow me from over there.

I hope that has reduced the possibility of further misunderstandings and I look forward to seeing you all soon on my shiny new site.

Thank you for your attention and I apologise again for any unnecessary confusion.

The last post…

This is it, the time has finally come.

I’m making the Big Leap to a brand new blog, Return of the Internet Nobody, which now resides at the domain this one occupied until earlier today.

Yes, WordPress’ Happiness Engineers have just informed me that all the virtual juggling has been completed and this post is being published at my old dalecooper57.com address, so I will now be posting everything to my lovingly crafted new site, starting with this week’s SoCS post on Sunday.

I am going to add a static page to the front of this blog, to redirect anyone who comes here to join me over at Return of the Internet Nobody, but I hope you’ll make the switch with me today by quickly following the link and clicking that follow button when you arrive.

I’m massively grateful and hugely flattered that more than 850 of you have already chosen to follow me this deep into the blogosphere and it wouldn’t have been anywhere as much fun, without all the amazing people I’ve met on my five year voyage of discovery, so thank you for your support, you’re all awesome.

See you on the other side.

Love and peace,

dalecooper57

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Welcome to what I hope will be the final prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge in its current location, because I’m almost ready to make the move from Diary of an Internet Nobody and begin the next leg on my blogging journey.

Yes, next week’s prompt will hopefully be coming to you in its regular slot, but from over at Return of the Internet Nobody, which will by then be at the diaryofaninternetnobody domain that this one currently occupies.

I hope I’ve explained that clearly enough, because the lovely Happiness Engineers at WordPress assure me the changeover will be smooth and simple, you’ll just have to re-follow me on that site, I think.

Anyway, on to the business at hand, today’s prompt. I’ve decided to go for something fitting, given that I have a few days off work during an ordinary English summer; Rainy days.

However you choose to interpret that is up to you. It could be a straightforward shot of the rain, or something you do when it’s too horrible to go outside, it’s entirely up to you.

But whatever you pick, show it to us in Monday’s post and give us a wet start to the week.

*****

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.

Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Right, where was I?

Right, where was I?

It’s here!
My new blogging home is taking shape and I’d love you to go over there and check it out in situ, so you can give me your first impressions of my creative efforts.

It is still in the development stage at the moment, but it will be up and running very soon.

Just click where it says “Return of the Internet Nobody”…

RETURN OF THE INTERNET NOBODY

So here we are on a brand new blog, which I’ve decided to call Return of the Internet Nobody, because it didn’t appear to be broken, so I didn’t fix it. Well, I did give myself a definite article, by way of a promotion.

The Internet Nobody sounds a bit more important than just being any old nobody and I have been at this blogging lark for over five years now, so I figured I deserved some recognition, even if it was only from myself.

I’m still in the process of tinkering with the overall layout of this blog, so you’ll notice new pages and widgets being added over the next few weeks, because it’s always fun to play with new toys. In fact, the whole point of this post is so I can see what it looks like when I add new content over the top of my…

One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary…

I know that these alternative definitions aren’t always that clever, but once I get one in my head, I have to use it, otherwise I can’t think of anything else. So I’m aware this is rather obvious, but;

“Handicap” – Convenient headgear.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Another Monday dawns and another edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge arrives, to help you start your week with a warm domestic glow.

K’lee set us the theme of Home is where the heart is on Friday and, since we spend more time in the living/dining room of our small flat than anywhere else, I’d consider that the heart of our home. It’s also the place that reflects the various things that make us all happy.

You’ll see books by favourite authors, pieces of Audrey’s artwork, family photo albums, my personal copy of The Wrong Stuff, Audrey Hepburn memorabilia, my Golden Face Palm Award, CDs, DVDs, a giant “R” for Rhonda and a solar powered Thanksgiving turkey, obviously.

There’s Audrey, sporting the very first of the gorgeous Woolhouse Boys t-shirts, which I had printed for (and posted to) fellow geeks around the world this week, and there she is relaxing, playing Minecraft yesterday afternoon.

And it wouldn’t be the Cosmic Photo Challenge without a bit of digital fiddling, so I’m ending with a pair of googly eyes made from our living room ceiling lights.

You can get an insight into K’lee’s crib, HERE

Why not welcome us into your place first, though…
