The Blog That Cannot Fail

There are so many blogs around that start off with an enthusiastic first post telling the reader how they will regularly write articles about this, that or the other, and are followed up by an article or two.  And then nothing for months.  Then either more nothing or a ‘sorry I’ve been lazy’ post  and then nothing.  These bloggers have clearly failed.  They made promises that they couldn’t keep or else they were just far too overambitious.  Or maybe they died, who knows.

My blog, however, will not be like that.

I am going to start off by saying that I won’t update this regularly.  It might not be very good.  It probably will be updated in fits and starts, or possibly never at all.  Sure, I would like to think that twice a week I will be able to produce witty or interesting articles and then build and nurture a  growing readership that hangs on my every word.  But I am realistic, and aware of my shortcomings.

I am not even going to say what articles will appear here.  I suspect it will contain stuff about unicycling,  geeky IT stuff, my YouTube videos, deep insights into life, and maybe cute photos of my cats.  But that is not a promise.  If any or all of those do not appear you cannot sue me.  But if they are, and you enjoy them then that’s a bonus.

So, I hear you ask, with all of that vagueness and lack of commitment, why do I even want a blog at all?  Well, I had a website here for 8 years which kind of filled the role of a blog, but it wasn’t quite as simple and easy to update as I would have wanted.  It didn’t integrate well with other media, and the self-imposed categories meant that a lot of what I would have put there didn’t quite fit so was never done.  Consequently, it hasn’t been updated for, well, lets just say its a long time.  Not that it was a bad site.  In fact, I loved it.  And with 40,000 hits a year, I think others loved it too.  So, I’ve not killed it off totally, and you can still see it here.  I do suspect, however, that I will be raiding some of the better parts of that site, giving them a dust off and re-blogging them on here, so don’t be surprised if there is some repetition.

If there is anything in particular you would like to see on here, don’t be afraid to ask.  I’m making no promises, but if I can help to cheer up your trip around t’interwebs then I will.
