Some blogs I know

    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...

    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.

    '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.

Oh, alright then, good luck.
I would be cautious about taking those good wishes from your current employers at face value. Your name isn't Fredo by any chance?


Of course it's brave to do what you're doing. The very fact that you're scared and still willing to jump into the unknown is a tremendously brave thing to do. Let's face it, it's what vast numbers of the working population would and SHOULD do if they only had the courage.
Go for it, man. Live dangerously and all that.


Eeeeeeee, you've done it! I have found that the best way to deal with fear of this type is to remind yourself that you can always go and work on an organic farm if all goes awry.

But there is no question that the best part of all is the feeling of being in between jobs -- so enjoy the next few weeks before you end up on the inside again!


Best thing I ever did when I jacked in my unfulfilling job for one which meant two years back studying and four years of pay cut. I wish you every success with the new job (and fewer years of pay cut than I endured). Definitely worth it.

Your new job isn't actually as part of Sam Allardyce's extensive background team is it? I always thought Kieron Dyer's flange looked in need of regular replacement.


I fear that even in Corporation X's extensive industrial catalogue there may be no flange up to the job of returning Kieron Dyer to factory condition for more than three consecutive matches. You might have more luck posting our sometime midfielder a horses' head or two to remind him of his contractual duties (and with Allardyce's famously cavalier approach to man-management, I wouldn't rule it out).

Your best wishes- and everyone's- are most gratefully received though... I'm starting to feel better already about 'The Outside'. Less than a month now...


Oh, well done!!
I second what Mutha said.


You fool!!! It's horrible out there! Stick to the devil you know!!! Tell them you've changed your mind and beg for your old job back, before it's too late!!!

Only kidding. Of course. I hope it really works out well for you. And yes, I think it is pretty brave. Good man.
