Hello World!

Welcome to, my new domain, both in name and nature.

This site will be a work in progress as I go along, building it up as I go, so get ready for a (hopefully not too bumpy) journey with me as I go through setting up a new blog, talk about anything and everything, and get to be more myself than I have before.

What is about?

Truth me told, I'm not entirely sure what direction this blog will take yet.

I have been blogging at A Little Space for Me for almost two years now, documenting what's been going on in my life, and that of my family. The thing is, it no longer feels like a little space for ME. I have been censoring myself a lot recently, and it's time for that to stop.

You won't get so much of the "Mum" me here, as that will stay on the other blog. Here you'll get pure unadulterated Softthistle, whether I want to talk about blogging, flylady, photography or World of Warcraft.

I've had Darren's 31 Days to Build a Better Blog in my possession for a while, so I will be using it to help me get my butt in gear, something I'll no doubt share as time goes on. As it stands, the blog is in its bare-bones thesis theme, and I will attempt to pretty it up over the coming weeks, hopefully with some input from any readers who may come on by (please give me comments - I'll send you cookies!).

So... first question...

What plugins should I be using?

I'll make a post of any tips given later.
