I will surrender.
There’s just too much to scream about when reading or watching the news every day, and with the elections for the Major of London coming… A man needs to vent off somewhere, and what better place than a blog, where my own silly thoughts can be expressed freely, and the world is free to ignore them?
Besides, the good wife makes far too many good photographs for them to hide away on a hard drive in the cupboard somewhere.
Recent experiments with Google+ show that it is no viable alternative. It’s interesting and I encourage anyone to try it out (ask me for an invite if you need one), but it is not the right way forward as a blog replacement tool: Too little control over format, design and content, and no easy access for non-contributing visitors who do not wish to deal with the overhead of managing circles and sharing options. Strikes me that a blog is a blog, and a social networking site is a social networking site.
So, I shall continue posting for the foreseeable future, with one change: Regular posts will only appear Monday, Wednesday and Friday, in order to keep my blog-posting stress levels at bay. Irregular posts may appear at any odd time.
So, welcome back. I had heard more people commenting, in person, about the termination of this blog than I knew were reading it while it was alive. Now that it is back alive, here’s your chance to help keep it going. Simply leave a comment every once in a while.
