Metroblog

A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

I'm Blogging More, and Enjoying It Less


Well not really. But I think if I'm going to keep addressing the topics I pick, I've got to slow down. Plus it's probably easier for both my Avid Fans if I'm not scrawling 500-word missives that sound like everyone else's rants.

So I'm going to try and haul back for a bit and reduce the verbiage. Please keep your cheering to a minimum.

All I'm promising is to try.

That might be a wise call, MetroBoy

There truly is a lot of verbal diarrhea getting flung out into cyberspace. One must write judiciously if one is to be taken seriously.
As the brilliant Franz Kafka once opined, write as if each word comes from a bank. How many words can you afford to borrow?
In some cases, parsimony can be a virtue.

Say hi to the Mme for me.

Hey sweetie, how goes it?
I've just caught up on my blog a bit (couple of new posts but nothing steaming). I'm finding that as my youngest has gone to school I have NO EXCUSE for blogging whilst simultaneously cooking/ playing with playdough. My DIY skills can be delayed no longer - there's a list.

Did a lovely job of putting a blind up though, it's been a week and it's still there. Result! Just the rest of the house, car and caravan, garden and our combined wardrobes to go then..

Real life is about the mundane.

The "Read more" button is a useful device: does Blogger have such a thing? It lets you post long missives, up your pageviews, and not intimidate your readers or wear out their PageDown key.

Unlike the unfortunates who hang around your blog waiting for the monkeys to create Bacon, my Avid Fans (both of them) are unintimidated by length.

I'm trying to improve the quality of my blog; you should try it on your own sometime.

Still, thanks for the suggestion.

Metro - I am indeed unintimidated by length, but delivery of the goods does require a certain.. style.

And imagination.

I think there's no doubt you have both.

More pictures would be good though.

I thought pigs created bacon.
