Autumn is here

After Eliza’s first highly successful summer on Air BnB  the manic rush has died down, but Dan and I are still welcoming visitors most weekends.

Due to the success and some lovely visitors I’ve added a second listing – still the same house but a listing that will sleep 4 people.  Search for up to 2 people and you’ll get one listing, search for 3 or 4 people and you’ll see the details of the second listing.

Lite-Bites and IT Matters

With the increase in Air BnB and the day-job, I’ve neglected the site throughout the summer.  Also, I’ve found that trying to write three blogs to a decent standard was extremely time-consuming, so I’m going to drop IT Matters and concentrate on Eliza and my writing,  The original blogs I wrote will still be there in the archives as will the documents linked to them including JargonBuster to refer to for tedious ‘techie terms’.  I may even write a new blog from time if something inspires me to do so but it will not be a regular thing.

So, I hope you enjoy your weekly free stories on the blog called Lite-bites and and stories of  ‘happenings’ in Eliza, in Looe or in Cornwall on the Eliza Cottage  blog.

What is a Blog, anyway?

A truncated expression from the word weblog.  But Wikipedia can tell you far more about blogs than I can, and anyway, why reinvent the wheel? Or you can sit back and listen to a YouTube video on blogging.  To answer the question in English, a blog is basically a web-based article.

Where are my ‘blogs’?

Look on the right of the screen.  Each section is listed, with the blogs underneath.  The current blog is shown in it’s own section and each blog is also archived by month it was written so, look down to the bottom of the right-hand panel to the Archives.   Click on the month and read away.


I hate it when, let’s say, you order a pair of boots for Aunt Sally on the internet and then get bombarded with ‘newsletters’ trying to flog more boots to you.  Sticking with the ‘boot theme’, don’t get me started on online shops where, when you’ve just bought a pair of black boots it displays a page screaming ‘Customers who bought black boots also bought…‘ with pictures of more black boots, some brown boots and sometimes even pink ones.  Why?  I’ve just BOUGHT boots, so go away and leave me alone.

OK, I’m off my soapbox.  The point is, I’d love to keep you personally updated on my writing, what’s been published, what my latest writing project is . So, scroll down to the bottom of this page and sign up for whatever part of the site you are interested in and I promise two things;

  • You can always unsubscribe – there is a link at the bottom of each newsletter to do this
  • I won’t ‘spam’ you, and unless I’ve got amazing news – like my book is being published – you will only get a newsletter once a quarter

Why pictures of Cornwall?

I live here and I love it  I want to share.  That’s it.

Comments and Questions

Any comments, any questions, please do share.  Each blog section has its own comments.  I will do my best to answer them all personally, but when enough people ask about a topic, especially IT, I’ll write a blog about it.
