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.

Admitting that i am not among the cognoscenti, i do find it fascinating that in my small town, in the midwestern united states, there is a local tavern that hosts Premiere League football - and the bar is open at 10am during matches. Seems a bit early to me, but bless them for being committed fans!


DF -- it's very easy to get a drink seven days a week here at am.

For the first time ever, Jonathan, I skim-read this one :)


9am even :)


DF- God bless them indeed and God bless you also for taking the trouble to comment despite not being part of the cognoscenti..

Looby- don't blame you my friend! To be honest I hesitated a little to press 'publish' on that one... very much part of an experiment in just banging something out there in enforced real time, as part of the wider current exercise into just getting back into the swing of writing.... but you are right to judge it on the long, and not-very-quality-assured side, even for such a loyal reader as yourself. I'm hoping you'll find today's post a little more to your liking! (it's certainly shorter..)

Oh and - belated Yuletide/New Year greetings to all readers/commenters/lurkers! (I do fondly imagine I still have lurkers).


It's a worthwhile experiment Jonathan -- one would hesitate to complain about the problem down the local Working Men's Club, but I know how frustrating writer's block is. I once attentped to break out of it by trying to writing in the style of Joy of Bex, who writes in a vaguely similar real time, conversational way, close to speech.

I did enjoy the presence of Jesus though.
