Closed for business

I started keeping a blog in 2006. It seemed to be a good way of sharing things that interested me with the wider world. And, for the past eight years I've kept adding to it. But the blog has been overtaken by more immediate forms of social media now, and the various Vines, PInterests, Flickrs, Snapchats, Twitters, Facebooks etc. are what people visit these days. I don't get many visitors any more. It's a lot of work to keep this blog open when no one is reading it.

I've therefore decided to close up shop, maybe permanently, but certainly for the immediate future. It's been a fun thing to keep and, of course, the archive will remain.

You can find my original blog pages from 2006 to mid-2011 here.

And this blog carries it on up to the present day.

Thanks for visiting over the years.

Maybe I'll see you on some other social media platform soon.



  1. Perhaps 'not many people are reading it' might be less hurtful that 'no one' to those that visit every day to see if you've written something.

  2. Sorry Sleepy - no slight intended. :) It's people like you who made the blog such a joy to write. Thank you xx

  3. Thanks for everything, as well as making me giggle you've pointed me in the direction of some really interesting art over the years...

  4. I'll really miss this blog. Sincerest thanks for all the work you've put into it over the years.
