Blog Life

My impression, having been 'blogging' for over a year now, is that this activity almost necessarily follows the patterns of real life, whatever they are. Unless, of course, you are a 'professional' blogger, a strange breed, like the redtop Guido or the broadshite - I mean 'broadsheet', (of course) - Dale. They are professionals - they do it, very professionally, for money.

The sad thing is that for amateur bloggers, like me, who choose to write about the central weighty issues of the day, according to their proclivities and their lights, naturally, (and of which they are fully aware and to which they are relatively well-adjusted) - real life is just so time-consuming.

Being busy is clearly the scurge of amateur (political) bloggers.

Anyway, point is I am quite busy just now in real life. But that does not mean I've stopped bloggin, in spite of the fact I recently managed (typically for me) to upset some of the nicest Scottish nationalists anywhere on the internet, and blew any semblance of credibility I might have had out of the water in the process.

I am so very, very sad about that. Of course.

Update about how sad I am and how you can deal with my sadness to follow, quite soon.. Watch this space!


  1. Thanks for blogging! I hope you continue if you have time. Andy JS.

  2. I know what you mean D, I havent blogged for two months such has been my unrelenting schedule. I will resume, I just don't know when.

  3. Cheers chaps.

    UB: I do hope so!

  4. It'll come eventually but I've been a busy boy and not just in the office. Have largely spent my weekends 'on manouvres'. Tonight's the first Saturday I've spent at home since god knows when but hell, I have to keep the young ladies of the Rhondda entertained!


Any thoughts?
