With lots of activities going on throughout the year, digital photography courses, pamper days and spa treatments, etc. UTLT needed an easy to use blog where the owners Nikki and Sean could post regular news of upcoming events, workshops and courses.
I am a real boxer fanatic and as my beloved Poppy is getting rather old now, I recently decided to get her a companion. We ended up with Zeus who we found through Boxer Amis, a rescue association dedicated especially to boxer dogs in France. Of course this is a very large national association with its many members loving to share photographs and antics of their beloved canines.
Naturally, instead of going through the time consuming process of uploading photographs through their forum I decided to create their own WordPress blog, L’Histoire de Belle Poppy, and by doing this I can also share their adventures and photos with other french friends.
What I would refer to as one of my “Hobby Blogs” it is simple, quick and easy to use as for me it is not a development project or a business site but one I just like to update when I have time in between research, development and writing code. But, unprofessional as this one is, the french love it!!
Of course, I then decide I wish to share the same photos and antics with my english family and friends so the next time filler was to start another blog for them in english, The Adventures of Poppy and Zeus. I had all good intentions to write up all the history of the old girl, Poppy and commence the history of Zeus on their own pages with their daily antics on the “Home” (Blog) page. I totally forgot the huge number of adventures my darling old squishy face has had during her 8 years and just how many thousands of photos I hve taken of her. Feel free to take a look but bear in mind that my own history will probably be near its end by the time I come to finish writing Poppys.
Up and running for over a year, the owners of La Maison Ancienne Chambres d’Hotes, Rhona and Mark, have decided to add a “blog page” to their main website www.limousinchambresdhotes.com. We agreed that it would be an excellent idea to keep in touch with guests and an easy way to receive feedback, experiences and ideas. Rhona admits she doesn’t have a great deal of spare time or patience for the computer but wanted an easy way to keep in touch ahd let people know of special offers and local events, etc.
Therefore, I set-up a very simple add-on blog using WordPress 2010 theme that Rhona can easily use to share information with the minimum of effort and without spending too much time at the computer. As part of the main website package Rhona also has the reassurance that I am always on hand if she needs any help or has any teething problems with her new blog.
