It’s my birthday today, and to celebrate, I thought I’d post a blog about this very website, MJRyder.net, which turned 10 earlier this year. I can’t believe that a whole decade has passed since I started the project, and it’s certainly had its highs and lows, however, I’m glad to say it’s going as strong as ever, and I’m really happy with the way it’s been taking shape. Here’s to another 10 years!
It’s been a trying few months.
I’ve spent much of the last few weeks working to rebuild websites that were lost when my business partner committed suicide, leaving me with an awful lot to do, and very little time to do it in. Thankfully I have now (I hope) finished the bulk of the work on this project, which has consumed most of my free time.
In terms of this particular site, MJRyder.net, I am frustrated that I have lost an awful lot of content that was not saved in the backup process, but on the plus side, this has forced me to take a good long look at the site, and the way that I use it as my career takes new twists and turns.

Hello, and welcome to my brand-new website! With the new year comes a new start, and as you can see, I’ve made quite a few changes! One of the biggest changes you will notice is the redesign. This has been done partly because my old template was looking very old, but also because I’ve switched over to WordPress CMS, which has given me a bit more flexibility to design the website just how I want it.
In the spirit of the ‘new start’ the other major change to MJRyder.net, is that I’ve wiped the slate clean content-wise, and have started afresh from the ground up. With the exception of a few reviews I thought I’d save to provide some content for the Book Reviews section, everything else has been re-written and focussed more towards providing a portfolio describing some of the projects I’ve been involved with, and showcasing my work.
But this isn’t to say that I’m going to stop blogging – far from it! One of my big resolutions for this year, as well as re-writing this site, is to continue blogging, and indeed blog on all the sorts of things that interest me. This will include (I hope) MotoGP, video games, books, current affairs, philosophy, writing and much, much more!

Until next time,
