It’s occurred to me that I should be posting here every time I add a new review to the review section. As well as being better for anyone who happens to frequent the site it’s also better for search engines, which will help me in my quest to make this site the top result for a search for “Christopher Downing”. So anyway, yesterday I added a review for Skate 3, which you can see here. Check it out. Or don’t, I’m not bothered.
I’ve added a new section to the site where I review games. Well, review might be a bit over the top, I share some of my thoughts about various games. You can get to it via the menu at the top of the site, where it says “Reviews”, shockingly. The three that are there at the moment I wrote a while ago, probably early to mid September. I’ll have to get around to writing some more, I’ve been playing Skate 3 recently, so I might write about that.
Earlier today I purchased the domain name christopherdowning.eu and set it up to redirect here, to christopherdowning.co.uk. So now I have two domain names, but still only one site. It was a bit of an impulse buy, but it didn’t cost me much. The .eu domain isn’t really very popular, which is why it was so cheap I suppose.
Tomorrow I’m off to the Eurogamer Expo, so I won’t have much time to mess around with this site. I’ll probably be able to upload some pics and write a bit about the stuff there though, add some actual content to this site. Today I made a couple of small changes by adding my Twitter and Last.fm feeds to the sidebar. I’ve also changed to background colour a few times, as I can’t settle on one I like. I’ll probably change the theme at some point though, but there’s loads to choose from, it’s hard to pick one.
I’ve always wanted to get my own website. A proper one with a domain name and everything, not one of those rubbish free things like my old Google Pages thing. Well, I finally got around to getting one, a domain name, a host, everything. But, because I really don’t have the time to make a proper site from scratch, I’ve just used WordPress. I don’t doubt that I could make one, but I’d have to learn a lot more HTML than I already know to get anything half decent, and it would never look as good as this. I’ve only just started with it though, I’ll probably change the theme and some of the other options quite a bit. I already changed the header image!
