Welcome to my blog

That's good. I've just tried printing out one of the poems from the Poems page and it came out fine. I also tried copying and pasting a poem from the Poems page to my microsoft word and that also worked well. So it should be easy for anyone now to print out or copy poems they like for their own (non-profitmaking) purposes. Any commercial use will need permission, of course. You'll find reference to that elsewhere on this site. But putting a poem on display or in an album, real or virtual, should be fine, provided my name is on it.

That's good. The site seems fit for purpose now. Very best, Tony

The new look site is up and running now. It's easier on the eye and should be easier to access from devices other than standard computers and laptops. It shouldn't be a problem for those standard devices either. I haven't finished checking it over and trying things out yet so I hope to be doing that over the next week or so. Once that's done I really do intend to be working more on some of my adult poems and maybe putting a few more up here. If my calculations are right the poems themselves will now be standard black print on white background, so for those of you who want to print them out for your own purposes the process should be easier and bring a clearer, better result.

This is my first post from home, using the new system, so I'll publish now and see if it comes up as expected. Here we go . . .

I've made a date with my very good webdesigner, Kate Macrae, to get together to update this website at last. It has been dormant for too long. I think she intends to convert it to an HTML version that will adapt better to the various devices that people now use to browse the internet. Also, I'll refresh my memory as to how to put new material on it from time to time. Most especially new poems and thoughts about poems and the writing of poetry. Our date is set for November so it may yet take a while. Meanwhile I may tinker a little, using my notes to help me. So a few new poems may go up over the next couple of months if I can still work the site adequately for that. If you don't do these things regularly, the knowledge just slips away, at least in my case, being 65 and having grown up in a non-digital world.

Let's see if I can at least post this blog so that it reads. ;)

I haven't been adding new poems even though I've written quite a few since last posting up. I'll go and look at my file of poems written since my last posting and choose one to put in. I may do a couple more over the next week too. I've been sorting my adult poems into files with a view to selecting a sample for a pamphlet which I'll self-publish with a local printer. I may then work out how to make this available by post via this website for a small fee to cover costs and postage.

Till soon, best wishes, Tony Mitton 26th August 2014 11.50am
