Blogging is a funny hobby. Some time ago, well over a year, I wrote a post on a television show. It addressed a question a number of people had about the series. And every Friday, when the show is on, the blog gets flooded with folks looking for answers. Sometimes, they stay and poke around, sometimes not. Either way, my pageviews go through the roof. Does this matter? Probably not, as the vast majority do not return. But it is neat from a statistics viewpoint. The miracles of search engines never cease to amaze me. And the same wave repeats itself as the show is exported overseas.
Cordellia Amethyste Rose is one such individual. She really should become a writer and put her vivid, fantastical imagination to work. Or perhaps, she could launch a navel-gazing blog. For the record, everything I’ve posted in this blog has been real, except for the tiny joke, every now and then. Daydreaming has no place in the dodgy and dangerous world of naval blogging.
Somehow, I have stumbled to 2000 posts. If you immediately shut your computer down and never, ever, again come to this site (that means all of you), I may stop blogging. In a couple of months. But you’all show up. So I keep on, blogging on, ’til the break of dawn. (Hmm, I stole that break’o'dawn hook from an R&B slow-jam. One of those dim-the-lights, break out the Barry White lines. It does not quite work. But I am a blogger with 2000 posts under my greedy belt. It will work if I say it works!)
An hour after accusing a nine-year-old girl of causing distress with her “inaccurate” lunch blog, the Argyll and Bute council has overturned its cameras-in-the-canteen ban and once again allowed school children the option of photographing their lunch.
“There is no place for censorship in this council and never will be whilst I am leader,” said Argyll and Bute council leader Roddy McCuish, in a statement just issued.
