I’ve been quiet for a month, blogging-wise at least.
It isn’t because I’ve failed to be stirred by various events or stories or experiences, as my wife will testify I’m never really short of an opinion or two.
It isn’t because I’ve run out of things to say.
I’ve been quiet because I’ve spent the last month reading…a lot.
I’ve been reading other people’s thoughts, opinions, attitudes and it has been enlightening, enraging and entertaining.
It isn’t as if I haven’t been writing. I’ve been doing a lot over the last month for various clients, as well as a few little features.
My month of blogging silence is not, however, about to be broken by a flurry of activity.
I’m hopefully about to whisk the wife away to a nice cottage in Norfolk – flooding threats permitting. As I was one of the thousands stuck miles from home by the flooding that affected parts of the Midlands a few months ago – forced to abandon my drive from South Wales I found refuge in what was possibly the last available hotel room in Ross-on-Wye – I’ll be keeping a careful watch on weather forecasts and driving conditions over the next 48 hours.
In the meantime, sites that caught my eye for a whole multitude of reasons include Joanna Geary’s blog, the esteemed gentlemen of MySpace Dinsmore & Mostyn, the creative but worrying model-making adventures of Derek Belm, the thoughts of the owner of the Blue Coffee Mug, the pondering of Puglet and the complexities of one chap’s life and opinions.
There’s plenty more – and I’ve also been suckered in by Facebook, like so many others
So much writing.
So much inspiration for so many different reasons.
