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.

Jonathan - I so wish I could be there. Matt & Phred's alone would be worth it (!), but you seriously deserve to win, so I'd love to come and support you. Sadly, I've not long been back in the UK, and I don't think I'm going to make it to Mancland by Wednesday. I'll be rooting for you though.


Due to an almost last minute change of plan it looks like we'll be there after all, even though the words 'jazz club' fill me with dread.

(but not as much as the the words 'poetry reading')


Sorry to hear you can't make it MQ- you can of course be sure of an in-depth report on the night's proceedings arriving on these pages almost instantaneously at their conclusion. Well OK, definitely within a month.

And Beth- be great to see yous down there, something told me you wouldn't be able to keep away. I've got an occasional comment-box visitor coming along... I'll ask him to try and keep the poetry to a minimum when in your presence...


Get in! That is tremendous and thoroughly deserved. I hope you win. Incidentally, I wonder if it would be possible to track down the original model for the 'generic footballer caught in the execution of a swivelling volley'...?


Fab, well done. Would love to be there tonight with you all. Have a great night - will be with you, Beth and JT in spirit anyway.


Eeeeee, this is very exciting -- congratulations, wor Jonathan for being on the shortlist and maybe perhaps even winning! You could put the award next to your "1 Width" ribbon, which I think our mam and dad still have tucked away somewhere.


...it was a travesty....as I may have said once or twice already....


I take it from Beth's comment above that you missed out? Sorry to hear that - just think of Crinklybee as the Keegan-era Newcastle side of 1993-1996 - always hugely entertaining and so, so close to silverware...
