If the Nibbles and Bytes website ( Ms Nibbs) were a person, sour judgemental types might tell her sternly that she needed to find some stability in her life and for goodness sake stick to one damned thing for a while!
But, Ms Nibbs is a tad willful and she always goes her own way. Right now, she loves WordPress and she won’t let her hapless writers discuss anything else. But, who knows, that could change. Ms Nibs has changed direction multiple times. She’s often spent months left to her own devices while the people who pay her bills and keep her online followed other paths.
Don’t tell her, but her managers have, on several occasions, considered terminating her once and for all. But, they can’t bring themselves to do it. They love her too much!
Ms Nibbs was born over at Blogger.com back in April 2004. She later moved to her own domain and got a WordPress makeover. Since then, she’s changed direction – and themes – several times.
Brett Christensen from Queensland, Australia does most of the writing for Ms Nibbs and tries his best to keep her in hand. Others contribute from time to time.
Why the name “Nibbles and Bytes”? Well, a “byte” is a collection of 8 binary digits (bits) and is the unit that computers use to represent a character such as a letter or a number. So, it seems fitting for a tech blog. And a “nibble” is half a byte.
But, “Ms Nibbs” rolls off the tongue a little easier than “Nibbles and Bytes”.
