Result for Free Blogs

Another post about the WP changes to keep you updated. Thanks to pensitivity101


This has just come into my email and whilst the name is a little suspect, I am relieved.

Hi @pensitivity101 happy to clarify that existing free sites created before March 31 2022 are unchanged. 
I see your site is about 9 years old (which is awesome!) and can confirm that it still retains the 3GB limit on media storage, and no limits on traffic. 
To further clarify, the new limits would apply if you created a new (second) site under your account.  The new limits would also apply if you upgrade your existing site, but as long as you keep a free site there is no change whatsoever, as mentioned above. 
Hope that helps.  Please let us know if you have any more questions.

Hope this is of help to bloggers in a similar position to myself.

Keeping An Eye On Windows 11

Not wanting to miss the free update, and perhaps have to pay for the new version of Windows, I have been checking the situation.

Today, I discovered this in my Settings.

Great news—your PC meets the minimum system requirements for Windows 11. Specific timing for when it will be offered can vary as we get it ready for you.

As you can see, it is still pending, but at least I now know I have a compatible PC.

Treading Carefully

This morning, it seems that the Block Editor is really catching up with me.

I was able to compose the previous post using the Admin system, and it published as normal. However, I noticed a couple of typos, so clicked ‘Edit’ at the top of the post to correct them.

The Edit screen looked different, and was accompanied by a message that read “Welcome to the new Block Editor”. I made the corrections, and clicked ‘Update’ as normal. But then I could find no way of getting back to view the post. So I cancelled out of that screen, went back through the Admin page to view the post, and the corrections had appeared.

Now I am going to read my drafts more carefully, and try to correct any errors before publishing.

Updated: Films and Cinema

This is a short post to let everyone know that my Films and Cinema category is being updated. At the time I started this blog, I was unsure how to transfer clips and links, or even if it was permitted to do so. Having now looked into this, I have begun to update all the posts in this category of my blog. Wherever possible, I have added at least a trailer for the film reviewed, to give some idea of what I was on about! In some cases, I have found complete scenes, or a montage of clips, all helping to give a better feel, of what are often little-known, or unusual films.

For a fair number of those films reviewed, I have even been able to find the complete film. This gives the reader the opportunity to see the whole film, free of charge, from the comfort of their own sofa, on a tablet, laptop, or streamed to an internet-connected TV. How good is that? Progress sometimes has its benefits. To the best of my knowledge, this is completely legal, and infringes no copyrights. The films are usually in the ‘Public Domain’, or have been put there by parties who want you to watch them. I do apologise in advance, for some of the advertisements that precede the clips. they are easily skipped, or very short.

I have managed to update all the relevant posts over this weekend. It has taken a long time to do this, with over forty posts, and around two hundred films to source, and update in editing.  This will hopefully improve your reading and viewing experience, and give you a sense of some of the more obscure choices and suggestions.

So, if you have previously looked at posts in this category, please visit them again, for an enhanced experience. If you are new to this blog, or have never bothered to read anything in this category, please give it a try. Regards, Pete.
