A tentative blog to test the temperature.
Ten years ago I was writing several blogs on various subjects - F1 motor racing, Music, Classic Cars, Great Romances and, most crushingly, a personal journal that included my thoughts on America, memories of England and Africa, opinion, humour, writing and anything else that occurred. It all became too much (I was attempting to update the journal every day) and I collapsed, exhausted and thoroughly disillusioned in the end.|
So this blog is indeed a Toe in the Water, a place to document my thoughts in and on WdC but with a determination not to get sucked into the blog whirlpool ever again. Here's hoping.
|At some epic moment in the last few days, this blog passed the milestone of a thousand views. Not only does that surprise me, it also reminds me of a favourite moment in the television series, Detectorists. After a day's expedition detecting for metal in the fields, Lance admits to his detecting friend, Andy, that his haul that day had been nothing but pull tops from soda cans to add to his collection. When Andy asks him why he keeps such trash, Lance replies, "You can sell 'em on eBay. People buy this sh*t."
Here's to the next thousand, oh, blog o' mine.
