Part of my approach to using the Apple Watch again was trying to do something different. I didn't want to just pull it on again as if nothing had happened.

It may seem basic but changing watch face was a good way to do that.

I used to use the Modular face as I originally thought "why try to recreate an analogue experience on a rectangular, digital device." It also seemed to offer the most amount of information on screen at one time.

But thinking about it, this isn't all that important to me.

As the Watch is normally used for quick glances I wanted just the basics so moved to the Simple face (variant III) as I like the... well, simplicity.

Having the battery indicator on your primary face may be a bit of a waste of a complication slot but, at present, I've not got anything else that I need to have there. I still have a reworked Modular face available that I can swipe to (but I never do) so the battery complication could move in future.

One thing I haven't explored yet is using Workflow on the Watch - that's something I will need to investigate to see if it offers me any utility.

I finally ditched the old SEO plugin I'd installed years ago when I actually cared about precisely formatted page descriptions, Twitter Cards and the like.

I'm over all that now!

The only reason I'd kept it this long is because, for a supposedly "non invasive" plugin, it altered post layouts and everything had been styled based on this.

So, biting the bullet, I deactivated the plugin and sorted the layout issues that caused.

It also meant that certain sections of the page header (such as the Twitter Cards and Open Graph markup) were now missing data so I've just decided to remove them. It's left the page header much cleaner and I just don't worry about those sorts of things any more.
