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.
  • 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.

It's quite inspiring in a way to hear how you've been getting on, as bumpy a ride as it has been. I'm in a terribly pointless job that utterly fails to engage me or to use what few talents I have. So hearing about you taking the plunge is making me think about doinig something about my own job situation.


Admirable to hear about someone who actually changes their career. I spent years in 'umble, boring, dead end clerical jobs and am married to someone who has been in the same 'umble, boring accounts-related job since 1986. We are both looking forward to "early retirement" (i.e., will both be shelf stacking in Asda in our eighties).

If you've got the guts to change - go for it.


I don't think you'll need reminding in the time to come that you've done the right thing. And a brave thing too.

Incidentally, Joella is very lovely, and a smashing person to get drunk with. We should have a get together some time.


Sounds like my idea of an afternoon/evening out Tim, we should definitely do that...

Nexus John

Wonderful. You can now look back on the flange desk and see the notice, "Jonathan was here."
Suggested music to go with this step into the unknown is the theme from "Paint your Wagon" I've been singing it merrily all my life.
