This is the last set of pages from Notebook Ethel. Now they’re all up I’ll have to update it’s homepage.

Notebook Ethel, Spread Thirty-Six. Website planning. During the last few years I have been “gardening”(?) my blog, more building a record of thoughts, art, work, notes and personal history than for actual self promotion. I have been doing this using WordPress with the intention that I can go self hosted at some point when I have the spare energy and resources to make that happen.  This mind map is a plan of this process from a few years ago. I still work on this as many time in a week as I can manage. Hopefully it can become something that will survive the too and fro of Sofia media silos. It’s still a work in progress. It’s not finished and it’s not perfect, but it’s very much mine and become more mine the more time I have a chance to put in.  #isleofblogging #linkinbio ✍️🕷🗺

The Blog Garden

“In some ways this would be a return to what I did a few years ago with my Gospel of the Trees site, which arose because what I wanted to say about trees just couldn’t be made to fit into a book, in part because it refused to become a linear narrative or argument and in part because it was so image-dependent and book publishers don’t like the cost of that. But the advantage of a tag over a standalone site is that each post can have other tags as well, which lead down other paths of reflection and information, in a Zettelkasten sort of way.”

Re-sort

I have been reorganising my site a bit. I decided to use the WordPress Portfolio system, which allows you to build a network of pages showcasing work. I thought it might free up some time and energy as there is so much built in functionality there.
It’s early days yet, but I have changed some of the menu above to reflect the changes. You can see the full portfolio pages here.
As well as giving each project it’s own page the system provides specific pages for tags and types so as I add more things the possibilities of how things can be viewed and juxtaposed increases, which I find very interesting.
Here’s a few different groupings below to give you an idea:

Animation

 

Comics

 

Pictures

Notebooks


Like I said it’s early days. As I ass more things hopefully it’ll fill out more.

Also I am toying of upgrading my WordPress so I can sell stuff directly from here instead of Big Cartel and that should enable more to do some more CSS modification of the site.

 

Bloglovin

Follow my blog with Bloglovin if you like that sort of thing.

Since the very sad and untimely demise of Google Reader I have been using Feedly to read and sort the large amount of blog and RSS feeds I follow.

But still I missed the hive mind collaborative and interactive nature of Reader, being able to leave comments on posts and see what other people were reading. I am aware thereis a payment level on Feedly that allows one to do something similar,  but I am in the early stages of making my work profitable in some form so such expenditure is out of the question at this stage and by its nature one would be only interacting with a small, exclusive commmunity.

Bloglovin seem to be, at this stage, to have the potential of having a simile sharing platform to Reader. You can follow, comment and collate blog posts into collections of particular subjects which echoes the nature of Flipboard. And it all links to your profile and your own blog. Theref providing a potential for a great network of blogs, people, connections and recommendations to those of a similar mind and compulsions.

I recommend giving it a try and please follow me there to see what I get up to.

Horticultural Fudge on the Website

I have now uploaded a newly scanned and cleaned up version of my webcomic, Horticultural Fudge to this website. It’s all layed out nicely on one page for ease of reading.
It’s a simple wordless story of gardening, flowers and retribution.

A version of this story will be available to buy as a print at the Bristol South Bank Arts Trail next weekend, and in due course, they’ll be available here too.

If you enjoy this comic you might also like to try Fudge and The Garden Of Eartly Delights also available to read on this website.
