Loving @keirwhitaker‘s great wordpress plugin – – brilliant way to add custom content without faffing with custom fields.

This blog is pretty new and I have had the occasional spike in traffic but to say it headed north yesterday is an understatement.

The Boag Effect

I have mixed feelings on the currency of social media in general but the numbers don’t lie, in this world one tweet might be worth a thousand words.


… and that would explain your downtime …

Haha, I wish :) The traffic had died down by that point, it was an issue with nginx that caused the recent downtime. I am still learning all about the joys or virtual servers!

:) Cool. Pretty much the same here, just got a VPS with myHosting and still unsure whether I’m meant to be managing security.
