Social networks come and go, and I really like posting social media. In this section (currently called ‘Social’), I’m trying to mirror the stuff I post to social networks. There’s also just a photos page or just a notes page. You can follow what I post here using my whole site RSS feed.

Done some website tweaks. Better grid (thanks to Rachel Andrew’s editorial patterns and Michelle Barker’s clarifying talk at SOTB), bigger type for bigger viewports (love me some fat fonts), reinstating the original nav colours, and some text here and there.

Continually insisting “Britain isn’t racist” is racist in itself because you’re dismissing and diminishing the lived experiences of non-white people as well as the history (and current policies!) of our incredibly racist country.

An incredibly detailed explanation of why it’s better to self-host Google fonts with a lot of useful advice.
Should you self-host Google Fonts?
Tl;dr Yes, better performance and better privacy.
Though I’d disagree that commercial web fonts are expensive. They take a lot of work, and if designed well are well-worth the impact. You’ve just got to treat them as an investment. If bought through Fontspring, you can also get “worry-free” licences without tracking.

Keep bookmarking Washington Post articles to read later, only then to be hit with a subscriber doorslam that redirects to their homepage. I do not care enough to find a way around this.
Not (broadly) got a problem with a site wanting subscribers, it’s the implementation. It only accommodates those who are signed up and perpetually logged in on the same browser.

My family is watching the Freddie Mercury tribute concert back to back with Live In Budapest. That’s the kind of Queen we like to watch on Christmas Day.

Hi trans friends. You deserve equality, recognition, respect and love. And there are loads of us cis British women whose feminism does not exist without you.
