This week I have made the big decision to move from Blogger to WordPress.
Dear Husband has purchased the domain name magentawrites.co.uk for me and helped to install the WordPress script onto it, and for the next few days the appearance of Magenta Writes… may change, often I am going to be looking at different themes and so on, and at ways to incorporate some of the many hats that I wear on a day to day basis into the blog.
I’m looking forward to the challenge of making this a great space to come and chat and write. It could take a while, so please be patient with me. If you have been a follower on the Blogger version of this blog, I thank you for coming here to have a look too.
Now, it’s rapidly approaching ‘stupid-o’clock’ so I am going to hit the ‘send’ button, quickly followed by the ‘Shut Down’ one, for now.
Catch ya on the flip side folks x
Anyone starting to follow this blog during the month of July 2011, will have their names added to a draw for a Celtic Cross (10 cards) Tarot Reading, via email.

A little more rumination on Magenta as an entity… I stumbled upon an article which tells me that Magenta does not, in fact exist! I kid you not. My right index finger went immediately into overdrive, clicking on every imaginable link to find out more about this travesty. The perpetrator of this alarming claim is one Liz Elliot of www.biotele .com (The Neurostimulation Portal) HERE
. Do take a look at this article as it has some excellent optical trickery for you to play with.
This colour wheel from Blue Lobster
shows Magenta very clearly!!
Needless to say, Ms Elliot’s claims are variously debunked by other writers, scientists and bloggers. I particularly liked the article HERE.
Which explains in layman’s terms why Magenta does exist and why it does not.
So, do I now begin to doubt my own existence? Am I purely a figment in the imaginations of folk who are trying to bridge the gap between Red and Violet? I have often pondered on the status of my visibility in the minds of others, particularly those of my children on occasions when dividing up the day’s chores between them etc.
Perhaps then, there is synchronicity in play in my choosing Magenta as the name under which I will work! I want to find a place in the imaginations of my readers with what I write, and if Magenta truly does exist in the imagination, then I hope that this is a good omen and I am off to a good start. No doubt time will tell.
