Back on the blogging scene



Yes, that's right. I am officially BACK. For those of you who may not have noticed, I haven't really managed to do any proper blogging in a while, or videos for that matter. This was because my ever so broken and ropey (but trusty and long lived - to some extent) Dell laptop, finally decided enough was enough. Once I started introducing it to DSLR images and HD video, it refused to co-operate, but tried it's damned hardest to soldier on through, until the day it turned off, and never turned back on again. Poor Dell (note to self - never buy another Dell, fell to absolute pieces towards the end).

I knew for a while, that once my laptop was dead and buried, I would convert to a Mac. I always hear so many good things about them, and know an awful lot of people who use them and absolutely love them. As a fair few people have said to me "Once you go Mac, you never go back". So today, after trying to rally up the last of the "new laptop" funds, I popped my MacBook cherry. I'm still getting to grips with it all, but I'm absolutely loving it so far. Expect to be reading and seeing a lot more of me here on my blog and on my YouTube from now on :)

  79. Welcome back. Would you do an overview of how your finding the MAC. I've always had Windows but like you have heard people rave about MACs but others saying they are trouble. Your newly converted thoughts would be helpful!

  104. I'm still a bit Macphobic, but I love having a play around on my boyfriend's one (sounds dodge). But I always whine 'Where's word' or even (shamefully) 'where's the internet on this thing'. They also look oh so cool.

    Great blog by the way, glad you are back. I never say this, but it'd be great to hear back from you :) xx

  108. my dell lappy is on it's last legs at the minute, i think it needs a new battery since it doesn't charge and if unplugged switches off, but i'd rather not buy one, especially cause i bought a new charger thinking it was that but it wasn't. i loved the laptop at the time, i think my brother pushed me into choosing it though. i shall definitely get a macbook as my second laptop they're beautiful.
    i look forward to your new blog posts and youtube videos sweetie.

  116. Yayy, it's good to see that you're back! I came across your blog sometime last year & I love reading your posts & ever since I read your post about pod camping in Cornwall, I've been wanting to go so badly! I never realised you had a YouTube channel until I came across it today, I was watching your videos & noticed you complained about your laptop a lot haha. I've used macs before but I got my own macbook last October & I LOVE it, hopefully you will too! :)

    ReplyDelete

  120. hey Zoe

    I was just wondering whitch Macbook pro you have? is it 13" or 15" and is it i5 or i7?
    -I am considering investing in a Macbook pro, so it would be nice to know what you use, and if you are happy with it :-) (a review would be great as well)

    Love Lotta

    ReplyDelete
  121. The Million Dollar iPhone or gold iPhone to more convenient is the fact that it is small and still able to perform many functions. Therefore when you go out to buy a gold iMac or gold Macbook Pro get the latest up to date version. It may cost more but you would not end up with a new but outdated iPhone.
