    Somewhere new to spend your evenings

    Fit-Pig-Logo-200pxI have been away from here for some time while I’ve been concentrating on another website I’ve been working on. I decided it was time to brush off the cobwebs, or whatever web pages accumulate over time (perhaps instead of finding dead flies on an unvisited website you’d come across tiny dead google bots?) .

    Fit Pig Recipes is the name of the site and can be found at the eponymous dot com address (or the link at the start of this sentence). The idea is it’s a place to go and find recipes for dinner, snacks etc. The recipes are user submitted so if you have one you like then you can submit it on the site and it will be posted along with all the others for people all over the world to enjoy. Traffic is going to take a long time to build up, so far I got quite a few visitors from stumbleupon.com and a few from the recent announcement on Facebook. Thanks to Paul for his inspiration in getting into the blogging (outside of this one) game. It took some time but I got there!

    I’m going to be trying a few more sites, still considering which topic to go with next – I have a few I’m considering but will be updating here more often too. Something that has been said far too many times already on this site but this time will be different….

    Facebook

    I’ve been trying a lot of the new Web 2.0 sites recently – this one, lastfm, flickr and now I’ve added twitter, Jaiku and Facebook. Twitter & Jaiku are mini blogs with text message size entries – the twitter one appears on the right here, I’m still trying out Jaiku but it seems cool in that it brings together feeds of the blog, photos, twitter and any other feed you have to get it all in one place. There’s not much on that yet except the first and last posts in the feeds I added.

    I was quite shocked to see that half of the people from my year at school are on Facebook. Even Steve has retracted his 13 year old girl comment to join. No sign of Paul the anti-internet web designer yet though – too busy with his new recipes site. I still need to give some of those a go but my cooking has been put on the back burner, so to speak, as with all the travel time to work I don’t really have a chance. All the more to look forward to with the new home, hopefully not too far away.
