Welcome to Musings while allatsea

Musings while allatsea was really an experiment to see whether I could move my other Musings Blog to the WordPress platform. There was no guarantee that anything would work here, although I am quite chuffed by the end result. It has become more like a journey of exploration as I visited (and blogged) about the places and things that I have seen here in the UK. Somebody said that I was taking the reader on a journey and looking back I find that it is a very good description of what is inside here.   The original iteration of this blog goes back to 10 January 2011 although I have snuck a number of posts behind that first post that were date relevant.

Many of the internal links still point to the original blog so you will end up heading out of here until I managed to correct the internal links (most have been corrected). The images were all migrated from Picasa by May 2016, but I am still finding internal links that point to the wrong place (most are now correct).  Unfortunately paragraph spacing is inconsistent throughout the blog. I have no idea how to solve it because there is no consistency as to how WordPress does things especially with  legacy posts. The themes do mess up table widths and image spacing and sometimes how items are placed. When I find these booboo’s I fix them up (same for typos). This is now my main waffling place because I actually enjoy doing it. 

Because this blog is chronological it all really comes down to the yearly index links at the top of the page (or on the right hand sidebar). I have not found out how to create those expanding menu items like I had on Blogger. This could be a product of the theme, or a peculiarity of Blogger. As time passed the top nav bar has grown in size as I added in the original posts from Musings. 

Out of curiosity, there are 487 posts here and  34 pages with over 5600 images in total.  In 09/2019 there were 717 posts and 50 pages. 


Towards the end of 2017 I finally deleted what was left of my blog at Blogger.
