A blog using wordpress as a platformA WordPress weblog based on WordPress

Years ago my wife, Breezy, and I bought a place in the Pyrenees. It’s completely off grid and a big renovation project. So that we could keep family and friends “up to date” with progress we started a blog.

At the time my brother suggested using WordPress and uploaded a copy to a URL that I had kicking about. Hence we ended up with a site at www.radicalfish.eu

At the time it was a bit clunky and it has been through many permutations since. The thing that I love about WordPress is that it is a living site. It evolves both in terms of content and in terms of potential and capability.

As more people are using WordPress so more developments appear and so progress is made. Radicalfish has had many different looks and layouts with exactly the same content.
