I'm not very good at keeping this thing on the go. There's plenty of reasons for this, but really it just comes down to the fact that if I want to blog (sort of) anonymously I can't write about all the interesting things I get up to without someone catching up with me, but if I blog out in the open I can't write truthfully about all the things I get up to (ie I can't be rude in case I get caught in the act). So I'm left with blogging about dull things that are best left for a personal diary or blogging about professional things (and there are already plenty of journo bloggers writing (mainly dull and/or catty) blogs about blogging and other journo bloggers and RSS feed issues and the politics of outbound linking). Or I could blog only nice things (ie. lies) about how I met the editor of so-and-so magazine and wasn't she just super. I could steer clear of my own life and pick another topic to blog on (TV, film, Porn, etc etc) . But I already do enough topic blogging for my day job. So until I think of some way round this leetle problem, I will mainly be here, here or here, but very rarely here.

Thanks for that
Well done to all the bombers. You made your point eloquently and persuasively. There's not a soul out there now who's not willing to listen to your views and opinions after this - because, after all, it's a tactic that's worked so well in the past, isn't it now. Yes, what better way to get what you want by attacking innocent people and causing mayhem and chaos? After all, the UK is renowned for buckling under pressure from terrorists and generally getting all hysterical about the threat of bombs. Yes, yes, we're not at all used to dealing with maniacal egoists who indulge in their violent tendencies under the guise of a righteous cause. We Brits can't help but go to pieces as soon as any violence occurs, and we're famed throughout the ages for wimping out at the slightest little thing. Yep, there's no doubt about it, we're going to take this one lying down and you terrorists have certainly shown us a thing or to. Well done you.
