Meta Blog

It’s been quite some time since I’ve made an entry here. The drought is finally at an end; I’m back, by popular demand.

The record will show that, after 24 successive entries over the course of a year, (an average of a blog posting every fortnight or so), this blog experienced something of a hiatus. Fully two months have elapsed since my entry bemoaning the evils of white ants and their voracious appetite for all things wooden (not least of which is my house).

The white ants are at least in part to blame for the cessation of my scribbling. Or rather the effort to expunge the imprint of their munchings has consumed my free time to the point that generating missives for recreational purposes has taken something of a back seat.

It would appear that the long, dark teatime of this blog has not gone unnoticed. The initial, lone voice of disquiet has been joined and lately risen to something of a chorus. Many of you are demanding 'the return of the blog' (sounds like a bad B movie).

It is gratifying indeed to hear you express this interest. I might have been forgiven for believing that this forum amounted to little more than me talking to myself. (A practise I reserve for my solo trips to crowded cinemas). But here you are in your thousands demanding fresh entries.

And have them you shall.

Blogging about blogging?

How are we in the Cold North Winter supposed to live vicariously in the summer of the southern hemisphere if you don't regale us with real life.

We may be forced to watch reality tv.

Or to paraphrase Dave:

Yea sure we all love hearing you talk (seeing you publish, whatever), but it's better when you actually say (write) something.

10 out of 10 for stylistic content. 1/10 for actual content, mate.


(This whine brought to you by an active non-blogger. So, like, I haven't a clue what I'm talking about.)
