    Cuppa’s Blog

    Drum Roll...................

    Please have a look the new blog & let me know if it works ok at your end & on what platform. It should format differently on pc’s, tablets & phones (fingers crossed).
    It’s taken a huge amount of learning, head scratching & cursing to get to this early stage, but I *think* I’ve just about sussed the basic concepts. The ’self hosted’ blog is very different to the online versions in how it is all put together, but I wanted to be able to write & format offline during periods whilst out of range of the net, plus not have to rely on some third party company who might one day decide to pull the plug on their service.

    Not a huge amount in the way of content there yet, what is there has been more about creating something just to get the thing up & running. Hopefully it will grow regularly once we leave home. Might be worth you bookmarking it?

    Gentle suggestions welcome, but no promises that I’ll know how to implement them!

    A great read Cuppa even before you start your journey.
    I look forward to following this, I got a lot out of your Big Trip blog and your Paradise Found entry was the reason I included Dampier Peninsula to our Kimberley trip and it was a big highlight.
    I am sure I will again follow in your footsteps as you uncover some more marvelous places this country has to offer.

    I had a look on my laptop, Samsung S5 phone and Samsung Tablet and shows up good on all, like the format.

    Well done Cuppa, have bookmarked your site & look forward to following your travels.

    If you can it might be worthwhile adding a follow button on your blog so other Wordpress users will get your posts in their feed as I`m sure others will be interested in your adventure. I have a follow via email button on my blog as well for those who don`t use Wordpress, you get an email link for new posts.

    Site looks good on my laptop using Google Chrome.

    Looks Good Cuppa and appears fine on a Surface pro 4 Tablet using Chrome. I am very envious and would love to undertake a similar change in life, perhaps in a few more years for the missus and myself.

    Unless you own and run a server yourself which I doubt, your still relying on a third party company

    Looks great on my Samsung tablet Cuppa. Far out to say I'm jealous is an understatement! Best wishes to you and Mrs Tea mate.
