Hello all.

thinking about making a off and on miniatures blog of sorts.


I see many of this forums denizens maintain miniatures blogs, and I was just wondering if anybody here might like to share some insights into which blog-service-provider are any good? And also maybe which are best avoided?


Like Jon Snow, I know nothing.


Thanks in advance for any input.

I use blogspot.com, free and relatively easy. I have had some frustrations trying to get the layout the way I want it but it does allow you to modify the html code if that's something you are used to working with. A lot of gamers use this site and a couple of the bigger paint blogs can be found there as well so its easy to follow the work on other blogs.

      So every so often I think about wanting to create a blog, but never get around to it mostly because don't know what to choose.  Do the fine folk out there that have blogs utilize free blogs, do they pay for them, or what goes on in the world of blogdom out there?

      During that spurt of effort from roughly November through February it became frustrating for me to work with my blog.  Part of it was the software behind Blogspot.  Part of it was the software I installed onto sidebars and such.
      So, quite some time ago, I purchased the domain name for my blog and started migrating my blog to a WordPress blog hosted by my business.  It's what I do for a living and the reason I am currently not working my elf off on miniature related projects as we've hit our busy season and we're understaffed and in the process of moving our offices and as they say the buck stops here.
      BUT, what I can sneak in was work on a website.  So, I present the redesigned version of my blog at it's new home, https://thrymstable.com.

      Unlike a miniature, technically a website is a never ending work in progress.  I do have some other features I plan to institute in the future but the important part is that everything that was on the old blog at BlogSpot is now on the new site.  It is relatively streamlined and fast.   I would have had it live sooner if not for some odd glitch in the way BlogSpot handles photos that occurred about 3 months ago.  So I had to spend some time manually rebuilding some posts with photos, etc.  But no website migration ever goes smoothly in this business.
      I hope you like the new look.
      I know I already announced this change over in the Off-topic post I necro'd but I felt the effort warranted a Show-Off Post.
      That necro'd post was the one about my effort to catalog the personal Websites and Blogs of Reaper Forumites.  Please head on over to add yours to the mix or check out the musings off our community.

      I just started my miniatures painting blog a few days. There still isn't a ton of content but I did post about my first miniature painting contest.
      If anyone feels so inclined drop by and give it a read: http://dethstruck.com

      I have been a Doctor Who fan for a while, starting as a kid with Tom Baker on PBS, and I recently began watching more of the Classic Who than I had ever seen - until about two months ago, in fact, I had never seen a single Hartnell or Torughton era show. But now that I'm going back and watching everything - and I do mean everything - I thought I'd make myself useful and make sure the whole world knew my thoughts on each Serial I watched.
      I've been going for 10 Episodes now, Beginning at Serial ONE (Back in the Hartnell Era), and I'm having a good time with it.
      If you care to follow along, I hope to post a Serial a day for a while, and then slow to 2-3 Serials a week during busy times.
      anyway, without further ado - My Blog - the Weak Unclear Force!

      Right im not entirely sure if I should post this here or in Painting Tips & Advice, but since its about the kickstarter models i'll put it here.
      Anyway I wanted to ask if any of you experienced painters might consider doing some sort of video or blog journal of how you go about painting some of these new models? I realize there are already a tone of tutorials out there but as a complete newbie (and I can't stress that word enough) sifting through all those different tutorials and finding a complete and easily to understand one is a bit difficult.
      So I was thinking it would be quite nice if there was a small collection of helpful sources, going into a bit of detail of each step of painting these new miniatures that all the newbies like me could start of at and then expand from.
      Anyway its just a suggestion.
