To go with the new home, design, PRESIDENT (sorry, couldn’t resist), and various other bits and bobs, there’s going to be a slightly new approach to how The Blog ticks along. Some of you won’t like it, I know, so I’m putting this explanation out there nice and early.
I’d like more posts.
In the absence of enough real, hard news to keep us to task, i.e., talking about David Gilmour, which is obviously the sole reason for your being here (and mine), there will be some random musings thrown into the mix. About important issues, such as the environment. The odd video. Reaction to what’s happening in the world. Polls of all notions. Links to interesting articles. I want to know what you’re reading (Attenborough reveals creationist hate mail for not crediting God?!) and who you’re next going to see in concert. That sort of thing.
So the same as before, then. Just more often.
There will still be plenty of space reserved for reaction to all relevant news, and there’ll still be regular doses of Random Nonsense, as well as, of course, Photo of the Month (both of which you can catch up on easily, now that they’re plainly categorised). But, to fill the void, and hopefully to keep boredom at bay, I’ll be adding a smattering of other things which, naturally, you’re free to either ignore or embrace.
Certainly, a blog is supposed to consist of the observations and reflections of the blogger. Being genuinely interested in what you have to say, I’ve always been extremely content with lighting the touch paper, standing well back and letting you fizzle. I usually react to it and invite others to do likewise, and I think that’s always worked rather well; there have been some good discussions, let’s hope for more.
I guess I’m trying to apologise for the fact that there won’t be something new and fresh to discuss in relation to David each week. Certainly not each day, possibly not even from one month to the next. There just won’t be, sorry.
So, I hope that’s OK with you, and that you can dip in and out according to your mood.
Thank you for all the kind words upon my return. I appreciate them very much.
The chatroom will be opening in a few minutes, don’t forget.
