I just blindly retweeted the above image. I can't claim I've read the actual article, or have some advanced knowledge or insight into the situation, but I thought it was worth doing a brief post on why libraries are so important to me. Neil Gaiman has done a test at his readings, where he asks... Continue Reading →

Blogging in 2014

A post summarising what blogging means in 2014, and where I'm taking mine. I've had a blog a while now, since mid-March 2012 (which is a while in Internet-time), so I've been asked a couple of times by people looking to get into blogging how on earth you do it. (I've given various garbled guidance... Continue Reading →

Blogging will be a thing again, and some reviews

Blogging has again become sporadic and erratic. Fear not¬†Putting on a Show¬†will return, as will #fridayflash, but travelling and other factors have caused some skip weeks.

Also, DSMing Curve Young Company's The Tempest turns full-on on Monday, as tech/show... Continue Reading →

Submitted various things I had hanging around to various places, will be on the... Continue Reading →

Firsts and adaptation

Firsts are always hard. This isn't the first time I've done a first post on some blogging platform or another, but I'm hoping this one will stick. I intend to check in here every week with some words on something I've done worth sharing, which will hopefully mean I will make myself have interesting weeks... Continue Reading →
