Time for a Revamp. And another milestone for someone

It’s been a semi-busy day,

I have two days left at work (well one and a halfish now) and I have been hard at it as you can expect. I have taken the opportunity today to completely revamp the look of my blog.

I was getting bored with the same old look and have decided it is time for a change.

So after about an hour of playing with it, here it is my brand new look. What do you think?


The next step on this is that I am looking into changing the name of my blog, I know that more than a few of you have said you like the name Scottish Legend and that is who I am and who I always shall be but again I feel it’s time for a change.

I have gone by the name Scottish Legend since I was Sixteen and I set it up as my first email address and it has stuck since then.

But now that I am getting serious about trying to be a writer, and I am hopefully on the precipice of my dream becoming a reality, I think it’s time to change.

As I said the other day I have branched out into the big bad world of Twitter under the name @ColTrysToWrite. And I was wondering if this could be a good name for my blog from now on?

I will be changing the URL for my page, I know I don’t lose any of my loyal and regular readers by doing this, but I will give plenty of notice before I do.

I am unsure if that is the name I want to go with but it’s a what I’m thinking at the moment.

I am open to suggestions on other names I could possibly use.

Today seems to be a day for Revamps for me.


Today is also another big day,

People who have been reading about my exploits for a while now may be shocked to realise that today (17th of May) my daughter is Five months old today.

Where the hell has the time gone?

It is a weird kind of paradox I seem to live in now, on the one hand, I can’t believe that it has gone this fast and it seems like only a few weeks ago I was completely freaking out over the prospect of being a dad and now I hate being away from her.

On the flip side of that it feels like she has always been here and now I can’t remember what life was like before she was in my life.

It is such a paradox in my head that thinking about it too much gives me a headache.

I can’t really explain it any other way but yeah she is now Five months old, time goes so quickly, she’s getting big and is almost on the move. I am convinced that she is going to completely bypass the crawling stage and will be running about after me in a few months, she is a strong girl and takes after her dad.

About a week ago I measured her and she is already two foot tall. I have never heard of that in a baby that is (at the time) four months old. But then I haven’t spent much time with other babies.

Anyway, that’s pretty much all I wanted to say.


I am open to name suggestions for my blog and here is a picture of the little angel

  1. First off, I must say your little girl has eyes that would make an angel jealous! Dang she is cute☺
    Secondly, I feel that colintryswriting in your email name is a little under confident for something that is going to be linked to a book you actually wrote. I mean you’re not trying any more, your DOING, right? So maybe Colinwrites, or ColinPutsWritingInAFullNelson!, ColinwroteItYouShouldReadIt, Hahaha just some suggestions…

    1. Well that is true she does have huge beautiful eyes.
      I tried that for the Colinwrites but it was already taken on twitter.
      I do have one that is my full name that I set up many years ago that, if I get published, I will use for the connection to the book.
      Also it’s meant to be a little self deprecating and funny that name. That’s why I went for it.
      I don’t think I’m making much sense. But it is time for a change of name on here so you wouldn’t say I go for that one?

  2. Got bad news for you- the growing old fast doesn’t get any slower! My babies turn 20 this year and in a time worn cliche it only seems like yesterday they were 5 months old! Funny how days and nights that can seem so incredibly long when they are tiny can pass by in the blink of an eye! Good luck with your book – I agree with Kira that you shouldn’t make the new blog name anything try – it sounds unprofessional. I really like Scottish Legend so would keep that as part of it – Maybe something like The Scottish Legend Speaks!
    Your daughter is gorgeous!
