Greetings, gentle reader, and welcome to my humble blog. The gentle rambles of a man arriving at his middle years. It seems to me there are various questions you may have of a blogger if you are to spend your precious time dipping your toe in their thoughts.
1) Who am I?
A British Man, married with a young son. The wrong side of 40. We live in a humble house in a small town in the east of England. I spend far too much time thinking, when alone on buses, walking to work or staring into space and this blog seems the best way to let that madness out and to stop inflicting my half-baked notions on the long-suffering Mrs Bloke. (Names have been changed to protect the indifferent.)
2) What am I going to talk about?
Right now I want to talk about Microsoft Word and the way it indents and messes about if it suspects you’re making a list. But mainly I’ll be talking about whatever is on what passes for my mind. I like Podcasts, movies, video games and flouncing around on stage being an amateur (very amateur) dramatic. So I will probably spend some time on quasi reviews of games, films or Podcasts that you have probably already bought, played, watched or listened too ages ago. Other times I’ll talk about bigger issues that have bothered me or that I think I may have an interesting observation to share.
3) What are the Rules?
I’d like this to be a place of gentle good humour, thoughtful debate and sharing of opinions and ideas. Abusive and hateful comments will not be tolerated. Disagree with me if you will, in fact I encourage it, but please be constructive. Hey, my mother might read this, so let’s all play nice, gentle reader. Likewise please don’t leave posts just to advertise your own website/ service etc.
Well that’s about all I have to say on me. I dare say more will leak out in my musings but we’ll just have to see where it takes us all. If you like what I do, tell me. If you don’t, well tell me that too, but nicely. I have a very fragile ego.
My warmest best wishes.
