For the last few months, Edward has been hard at work collating and restoring old Jammy Toast posts. He finished most of this work last week and we are now in the process of restoring these posts to Jammy Toast. If you look on the Archives list to the right of this post (it may be down at the bottom of your screen if you are using a phone) you will notice that the archive list now stretches back to June 2006 when we first started blogging. You might also notice that in the Categories list there is a category called “Archive Post”, these old posts will also be available here if you click on it.
Some of you may have noticed from yesterday’s post that Davidd was awarded an OBE *cough* in the New Year’s Honours list. Well, we are not normally readers of the Daily Star but this morning when we went for our regular newspaper we couldn’t believe our eyes. There gazing back at us from the Star’s front page was our very own Davidd Bearkeeper OBE. He has only gone and made front page news – and not for the reasons we would have originally thought. We were astonished. So-much-so that we thought we would reproduce it for you here…
Some of you may have noticed that we haven’t heard much from Edward lately. He hasn’t written anything for his column for some time and there has been nothing much new in the way of innovation around Jammy Toast. “Has he left home?” I was asked last night. Well, to put everyone out of their misery, he has started wading through all our old posts going back to 2006 when we first started a blog off with a view to starting up an archive of old posts.
Edward came to us with an idea today. He maintains that some people have been missing the archive posts from Jammy Toast of old. As most of you will know, we started blogging back in 2006 making this year our tenth anniversary. Edward says we should restore all the old posts (which he has safely backed up) to Jammy Toast for people to read and celebrate. We originally started on “The Queen’s Blog” before moving to our own “Renault Bears” blog and then creating “Jammy Toast”. We do have all the old posts from all the old blogs safely stored away. Does anyone fancy we restore them so you can read them?
Edward has completed importing all the archive posts onto Jammy Toast and they are now fully compatible, and even viewable, with our current WordPress theme. All the graphics files we have used over the years have also been imported and re-sized by hand to fit our current theme. This has proven to be a time-consuming job with nearly 1600 posts to go through, so we would like to offer a big hearty slap on the back to Edward.
The more observant amongst you will notice that Edward has started work on importing the old posts from all our old blogs. The bears started on Blogger in 2007 before moving to Save The Renault Bears then to Renault Bears and now finally we are here on Jammy Toast. All the posts from Blogger, Save The Renault Bears and Renault Bears will end up forming part of the current Jammy Toast site once Edward has finished all his work.
