let me be your first…

i meant the first (sorry!) to welcome you to my brand new spangly blog. after nearly 3 years of blogging and finally getting enough people to justify it, i decided it was time to give the love and attention it deserved. much thanks to andrew at for the gorgeous and perfectly random site!

so – a new era…. still plenty of randomness, but maybe a little more tech too (and videos but hey that goes without saying!).

the site’s about you as much as it is about me, so make it your own, comment away and let’s have fun πŸ™‚

much love, mel x

    This design as almost as lovely as you!

  2. Matt says:

    very cool site – love the header and the little RSS guy on the bench – might even convince me to occasionally leave Google Reader to read a post..

  3. Dave Kinsella says:

    It looks amazing, congrats.

  4. Mel says:

    thanks guys – so glad that you like it.

    matt – glad that you like the little rss guy – someone said to me that he looked like he was reading a newspaper on the loo, but you obviously didn’t spot that. having now brought it to your attention, that’s all you’ll see πŸ˜€

  5. Luc says:

    I like it! Although the RSS man sitting down looked like he was on the loo when I first glanced…

  6. Erik Kastner says:

    Really awesome!

    Does this mean videos are gonna have sound now?

  7. Matt says:

    @Mel actually I did notice that but didn’t want to lower the tone in the comments on your shiny new blog

  8. kassy4 says:

    Beautiful design!!! I like the loo reader too.

  9. Clint says:

    Looks great!! It is totally you!! Beautiful!

  10. Mel says:

    yes yes i love the loo man… everyone knows that the best stuff is always read on the loo right? (kidding, i’m a girl… i never go to the loo!).

    @Erik Kastner – now why would i go and ruin a perfectly good video with my voice? did you not see the drunken video a few weeks back? lol

  17. Stoo says:

    happy birthday Mel xx

  18. Mel says:

    I’m so lucky to have such an amazing network of interweb friends and contacts. Sending much love x

    Happy Birthday Mel!

    What a way to break in the next year of your life with such a nifty and sweet redesign. It oozes personality (much like yourself) with a subtle whiff of class (much like yourself, again).

    I particularly like the little guy sitting on the RSS icon (although, at first, I thought he was sitting on the lavatory reading the paper).

    Fantastic work from Andrew though. I’m sure he’ll be finding more work coming his way after this treat.

  20. Mel says:

    Thanks Si, I’m really pleased with the way that it’s turned out and hope that Andrew will have people knocking at his door – good karma and all that!

    Have a great weekend x
