It’s been nearly a week since I last posted, and I feel obliged to write something. Unfortunately there’s not much to report, other than a comical incident on Thursday night when I sat down slightly too quickly in a low chair and split my trousers. Luckily (for me and everyone else present) I wasn’t going commando.

I’m not sure about the blog generally now. Should this be a diary-type blog where I talk about things that happen in my life, however uninteresting they may be to everyone else? Or should I be giving my own take on issues of earth-shattering importance, even though no-one really cares about my opinions? Or should I just take a break from blogging altogether for a while?

Each of the above options is tempting in its own way.

    Do it all! Use tags to separate things, set up separate RSS feeds for each tag, done.

    Hello Robert

    You raise an interesting issue. Whether to write about your everyday life on your blog or confine it to things you think people will find interesting.

    For mine, I went for the latter, figuring that my life would have to be quite radically different from that of my readers, and that leading such an interesting life to entice people back regularly over three years may be slightly unrealistic.

    My editorial policy now is simply to record anything I think people will find interesting (be that books, photography, media, tv, whatever). It seems to be working, I’ve had reasonable feedback on work to date.

    Hope this is useful and keep up the blog!
