Me Is Has Was 5


April 1st 2013 can only mean one thing: this blog is now five years old.

As one of the eight people worldwide still blogging, I count this as something of an achievement (and far superior to sporting an all-body tattoo of a dangerous looking rat).

I’m away from my desk today so this one goes out as an automated possible car crash.

Thanks to everyone who has joined in the excitement and thrills over the years.  Unless Google sells off Blogger some time soon, I fully intend to continue as a conduit for the best in reasoned commentary — and knob jokes.

Must run now to pack for a weekend away mingling with kookaburras and meerkats.  Srsly.

You have a remarkable amount of verbage. I tend to run out, which means if I blog too much, I tend not to get any "real" writing done...
I'm a bad, bad blogger (one of the 2,789,667,342 who are no longer blogging) and I admire your sticktuitude. Someday I hope to have the energy and brain power to rcommit, but alas...

Blogging is a weird thing at the moment. What made it work in the past is that everyone was onboard. Now people are Tweeting and booking their Faces, it's left the blogging community a little depleted. Fewer people read, fewer people comment, and as a result, fewer people blog. I'll stick around for a little while longer — it was all only intended as a diversion from 'real' writing anyway...

I miss the whole blogging thing- I used to have trolling through all your blogs as a friday morning treat, along with a healthy dose of EE. These days there just doesn't seem to be time for it. I keep trying to make time, but my kids plot against me, little time sponges that they are...
Plus, it's been so long, I can't remember my login, which is why you've all become motherless mongrels.

Weren't the Motherless Mongrels a 60s psychedelia band?

Their gigs went on for days — till they discovered a bunch of time sponge kids and cut it all down to a few hours...
