It occurs to me that when I look back at my travels and the things I have done, that it hasn’t always been the destination that stood out, but the journey to get there. That is not to say I haven’t enjoyed the destinations like Dublin, Manchester, New Zealand etc, or that I don’t have stories to tell about them, but it has been the journey to those places that I remember odd things happening.
I am sure I will have stories to tell about those places and trips but I have always wanted to write about the journeys themselves. So as I sit here and contemplate what posts I can make up over the next few weeks I have decided that I will try to do a series of travel stories that cover the journeys I have made.
On another note, I have a friend of mine working on some graphics that are personalised to me so that I can get rid of the generic Theme Title Header. I can’t stand it, but for now it works. Keep an eye out for a new look, change is in the wind.
I set myself a goal to do something on the Blog every day. So far I do, even if it’s a little behind the scenes research. My next mission is to get my head around ‘Tags’ so that I can get this site easier to find in search engines. At the moment it’s not that easy and although I love that you come to visit me and see what I have been up to, I would like to grow this site and that means more followers.
Lastly I realised it might pay to add a ‘Home’ Button. Someway that is obvious to get back to the blog page once you have left it. There is a way currently by clicking on the ‘Dan’s Odyssey’ Title, but this is not very obvious, so I think a Home button would be beneficial.
Remember, I want this site to be interactive, feel free to make comments and give suggestions. Is there something you would like to see in my blog? Is there a story you would like to hear? Do you have a query about somewhere I live near or have been? I would be happy to answer all your questions and even post about some of them.
Stay tuned for upcoming changes. I hope to see you soon.
