Some blogs I know

  • Freckles and Doubt
    Considering her mastery of narrative structure etc. (insert narrative structure here.....)
  • Trailer Park Refugee | just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight….
    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...
  • Exile on Pain Street | Straddling the Hudson River. One foot in NYC, the other in suburban New Jersey.
    One man's story, etc.....
  • Fat Man on a Keyboard
    'At first they came for the smokers but I did not speak out as I did not smoke. Then they came for the binge drinkers but I said nothing as I did not binge. Now they have an obesity strategy...'
  • New York Bike Blog
  • Belgian Waffle
    Prolific? Bien sur. Waffle? Not a bit of it. The best thing to come out of Belgium since Leffe Blonde, and that is saying something.
  • Non-working monkey
    'Why taking work seriously turns you into a cock', among other lifesavingly important career advice.
  • Razorblade of life
    'Not so much cutting-edge as half-cut and still sliding'...
  • blue cat
    This blue cat fellow (he writes for the telly you know) issues forth an apparently effortless stream of grade-A funniness that has me overcome in turns by helpless laughter and shameful, powerful envy. There I've said it.
  • Joella
    Joella in Oxfordshire. Working for The Man while training to be a plumber (I think!). Loves gherkins, hates aubergines... and Fascists.
  • Bushra
    Bushra's blog/ homepage/ call it what you want
  • Dubsteps (formerly Hobo Tread)
    Thoughts of Skif, a Havant and Waterlooville fan exiled in Liverpool- possibly the most engaging non-league football writing to be found on the web- and with a little bit of politics, and plenty more beside!
  • Tired Dad
    The Man Who Very Nearly Fell Asleep
  • troubled diva.
    Mike, the self-styled 'Fairy Godmother of British Blogging'. He got us all published in a book, you know...
  • Private Secret Diary
    Dispatches from deepest Norfolk. Not that private and not that secret. Just consistently hilarious.
  • The man who fell asleep; Sadness and ecstasy in unequal measures
    The book inspired by this veteran site (A Year in the life of The Man Who Fell Asleep) features the 'sarcastic polar bears of north London' among other oddities that the author manages somehow to render absolutely plausible.
  • Pete Ashton's Internet Presence
    Birmingham's finest. Writing with enviable clarity on every subject under the sun since 2000 (a very long time indeed!). Now with added nice pictures of canals and stuff...
  • Looby
    'An awkward, clumsy fellow; a lubber; a novice'....a venerated (if refreshingly irreverent) blogging institution. Lancaster's very finest!
  • RichardHerring.com
    The comedian Richard Herring's kind of online diary thing. Always worth a visit.

Eeeeeeee, Jonathan, this is bleeding great stuff. I hope you will soon have time to tell your life story as:

- steam irons and their sartorial benefits

- national express coach journeys (and the Clipper too, when they used to have them lasses who sold stotties)

- things hurled by next door neighbours

That's all I can think of for now like but I'll be checking back to read more of your fine prose as soon as I have found myself a job.


I'm laughung out loud as i read this sorry tale of tellies. Hilarious !!


Hello there! I have just been telling the story of Pie Club, as per your recent suggestion (see most recent post...)

Abby- I am sure some of our Newcastle neighbours will have thrown stottie cakes at each other on countless occasions. possibly even while travelling on the Clipper (you know who I am talking about...) Meanwhile here in Manchester I have neighbours who write threatening notes to each other on Post-it notes which they then attach to each other's front doors- but that story may be libellious, and also gives a bad name to our beloved Post-it Notes (although I have to say the threats perfomed very well, retaining their sticky- but not-too-stickiness under challenging mid-winter conditions, and detaching themselves just seconds before the arrival of the constabulary). Good luck with the job thing now you are back!- and by the way I have put on a link on Crinklybee to the magnificent Bonkworld, now that it appears to be working again...

Oh what a long comment (and on my own website as well, this is probably a breach of some kind of unspoken etiquette). So I wil be off.
