Rip it up and start again

Well hello there. Nice to see you. Yes, it has been rather a long time hasn’t it?

I was going to write a long, detailed, explanation of what’s been going on – but then I remembered how dull that would be for you.

So here, have a picture of some kittens instead.

Cute, right?


Let’s see, what else do I need to tell you… ah yes, the theme.

I’m faffing around with a new theme behind the scenes. But if I wait until I’m really happy with it before doing anything, this blog might lie languishing and unloved until the end of time. So I’m sticking with the default WordPress TwentySixteen theme for now.

Have I forgotten anything? I suppose I should say something about content. If you ever read the blog before, you should expect more of the same. Quite literally the same in some cases, as I’m going to be republishing a load of stuff that used to be here (after giving it a bit of a spit and polish).

And if this is the first time you’ve read anything I’ve written… Hi! Welcome! Where have you been all my life? Anyway, now that you’re here, let me introduce myself. I’m Lydia, and I’m a communication junky. I’m a professional word nerd, and this here blog thing is where I get to write about writing.

I also get to write about talking, and thinking, and feeling, and doing, and learning, and trying, and failing, and anything else I fancy – because it’s my blog so I get to make up the rules.

Ok, now that’s done, let’s get this lexicographal show on the metaphorical road.
