Following an extensive and thoroughgoing review with my image consultant, we decided that “johnm55” as a brand name was very 2014 darling. Actually it was probably more 2010. We made what we hope will be major game-changing paradigm-shifting decision and renamed the blog “A Scotsman in Suburbia” however the tag line remains the same; “Random Thoughts, Ramblings and Rants.” because changing the name doesn’t mean that a suburban Scotsman, will be anymore coherent than johnm55.
We do feel that this could drive the page views up into the low teens (per month). We also hope that this Blogging 101 course might improve the content,

Edit 17/01/15 as you can see the header and a few other aspects have now been tarted up.
*The GIMP is a very powerful free image editing program, which has only one disadvantage, a fairly steep learning curve.
