Dave Farmer – Writer, Blogger, Noobcake! I’ve taken the plunge and changed my blog from Noobcake to Dave Farmer, my real name! Actually it’s David but I’ve never felt all that comfortable with the way it rolled off my tongue, and besides I wanted a new domain name and davidfarmer.co.uk was taken. The title and tag line thingy have changed too, but the noobcake is still there!
Noobcake.wordpress.com will now be redirected to the slightly more wordy davefarmersblog.wordpress.com, although I actually wanted the much neater davefarmer.wordpress.com but that was taken. Sigh. Hey-ho. Don’t worry, it all looks pretty much the same as it was, it better or there will be some fuming and banging of heads against keyboards! If you see anything wrong or stuff doesn’t work please let me know with a quick rant.
WordPress have an excellent library of help files and tutorials but moving one blog to another or renaming one isn’t as easy as they make out. I’m still a bit confused about my actual username because when I log into WP it doesn’t seem to understand “davefarmersblog” so I try “noobcake” and hey-presto! I’m in. I’ve made the new blog the primary one but it still wants the old noobcake. Weird.
For now I’ll keep things as they are, colours, theme, etc, but I want a fresh look with my photo at the top, you know, a bit more professional looking. I took some photos earlier but they made me look like a serial killer! Baby steps though. I’ll find a pic of me that doesn’t give folks the heebie-jeebies!
Quick question about the actual title – what do you think is better: Dave Farmer or Dave Farmer’s Blog?
