Ascetica or Publish?

After having spent few hours going through the free themes available for WordPress users I shortlisted Able, Ascetica, Publish and Runo Lite. At present I’m not sure if to use Ascetica or Publish but I think I’ll try Ascetica and if not fully satisfied I’ll change again in the next few days.

What do you think?

A year ago

Esattamente un anno fa’ ho iniziato questo Blog. Come scritto in questo post ho iniziato principalmente come esperimento, volevo imparare le basi ed ero curioso di capire se tenere un Blog era qualche cosa che potessi fare a lungo termine. Le cose fino a questo momento sono andate abbastanza bene anche se devo ancora imparare molto. Vi lascio con alcune statistiche relative al primo anno.

Exactly a year ago I started this Blog. As mentioned in this post, only written in Italian, I started  this Blog as an experiment, I wanted to learn the basic skills for keeping and writing a blog and I wanted to find out if having a blog was something I really wanted to do on a long term. After the first year I can say: I enjoy writing on this Blog and I’ve learnt few things I didn’t know when I started even if few more are needed. I’m including in this post some statistics for the last year.

At the time of writing:

Views all-time  38,127

Views on busiest day 288

Views on busiest week 1,412

Views on busiest month 5,700

A new theme?

E’ da un po’ di tempo che ci sto pensando, forse e’ arrivato il momento di cambiare aspetto a questo Blog. Durante questo fine settimana decidero’ cosa fare. Il theme ‘Enterprise’ mi piace pero’, dopo quasi un anno, forse e’ arrivato il momento di dare un aspetto un po’ diverso a questo Blog. Al momento i due themes che preferisco sono ‘Skeptical‘ e ‘ITheme2‘; vediamo quale dei due si adatta meglio a questo Blog. Qualche consiglio?

Ps: mi sono reso conto che e’ passato tanto tempo dal mio ultimo post scritto in Italiano, nelle prossime settimane cerchero’ di usare la mia lingua madre piu’ spesso.

I think that its about time to give this Blog a new and refreshed appearance even if the theme ‘Enterprise’ has been used for less than a year and fits well with the needs of this Blog. As I’m not very familiar with blogs, to decide which theme to use has been a difficult task and at the present I’m thinking to use either the theme ‘Skeptical‘ or the newest ‘ITheme2‘; over this weekend I’ll decide. Any advise?

Flags, flags and flags

If I’d known…. Now, I think, it is too late. I only  started the flag counter few days ago but I’m already obsessed. I think about flags every second and I check for new flags every minute. I hope there is a cure… If I don’t get a new flag in the next 10 minutes I’ll have an epileptic fit. It’s coming… I can feel it.
