I was reading Skint Writer's blog today and I see that he has been blogging for exactly six months. Well done, Skint, so little time and so much achieved.
Made me wonder how long I've been blogging for. Well, blow me, I've checked my old posts and it's exactly a year today since I started! Isn't that amazing. Here's my first ever post:
On an impulse that has been building up for years I decided to create this blog. What I'm going to try and do is create a platform that will allow me to publish my latest novel, some short stories, some rants and some thoughts on the state of the world. To share myself with some like-minded people. So this is day one. I hope you enjoy the journey with me."
Well, it's certainly been an enjoyable journey, and one which I hope still has some way to go. I'm amazed I've kept it going for so long - despite the intermittent silences when I've felt like I had nothing to say.
And like any good journey I've met some really fascinating people on the way. And made some good friends too. Connected, in fact, with people like you. My heartfelt thanks for keeping me company.
