Apologies for the long periods of silence. I’ve only written sporadically since last summer. Real life intervened. Work became stressful for multiple reasons, then some different reasons. Glad that’s all sorted. At about the same time, and more excitingly, I bought a house. Yay for me. Now all of those stresses are over I can relax and get back to what I enjoy.
August represents the 6th anniversary of this blog and it seems the turn of the month is a good time of the year to start it again.
For those who follow me on Twitter I never really went away. In fact I rarely shut up or stop retweeting. I aim to reduce frequency there and channel more thoughts here, sometimes a 5-tweet string is more appropriately hosted on a blog. And I miss blogs. Nobody blogs any more.
A refreshed blog theme (this one is even mobile-friendly), a different way of doing things compared to recent times and get back to the way it was in 2008 and 2009. No schedules. No weekly commitments. Occasionally long form, mostly shorter, snappier, more frequent. Finding and sharing things. Yes, I know, everyone else is doing the sharing thing now but many are just content aggregators and a few have a problem with source attribution. Tut, tut. I was doing this stuff years ago. Time to stick those elbows out like Marc Marquez and claim some space back.
In the meantime my eyes are going square (or should that be racetrack-shaped) from all the racing I’m watching, magazines and websites and blogs I’m reading, podcasts I’m hearing.
I’m watching too much racing, again
