Still Alive!

Howdy, readers!

It’s been a while. My apologies!

It’s not that I’ve disappeared – or even that I haven’t had stuff going on. I tend to write about stuff that interests me, and in recent months, the main thing that has held my interest is politics – both UK and world wide. Given how contentious these subjects can be, particularly online, I just didn’t feel compelled to write about it here. There are many political blogs out there, and I have no intention of this becoming another one of those! Love it or hate it, I’m pretty sure that these are the most interesting times politically that I will see in my life time.

That said, I have been up to rather boring adult shenanigans – I’ve started decorating my new house, and I’ve decided to start my adventure into being fit once again.

I’ve started doing the Insanity workout. I’m on day 2, and I hurt. I suspect that this is going to prompt a series of blog posts which will generally query why I thought putting myself through this kind of torture is necessary. After one bout of a fitness test and the plyometric cardio circuit, I think I hurt in my everything. With any luck, when I get to the end of the 60 days, I may actually be brave enough to post before and after pictures. With further luck, the after picture will actually look better than the before picture.

Reschedule!

So, this is a time of year when everything is maniacally busy, so I won’t be posting *quite* on schedule until the new year – after which, normal service will resume.

In between eating lots of food, watching lots of films, playing many computer games, drinking too much and spending time with family and friends, I doubt I’ll be making much time to blog over the holidays!

Fear not, though – no doubt I’ll be having plenty going on that I’ll probably have blog fodder until February.

Happy Christmas all!

Blogger Recognition Reward

Well, I got nominated by the awesome bobaandgames for a blogger recognition reward, which makes me feel all kinds of awesome. Thanks for that! I figured I needed to hold up my end of the whole thing and write up a Blogger Recognition reward myself. This is great, as it gives me the opportunity to share some of my current favourite blogs! Winnage all around!

So, here are da Rules:

  1. Write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips.
  2. Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.
  3. Comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

I started blogging mainly to have something to do. I was just coming out of a bout of depression, and was eager to keep myself busy.

I never settled on a topic for my blog, beyond ‘things that interest me’. I’m interested in many things, so I decided to not limit myself to just one thing. As a result, my blog is now something a bit like a diary. I write about the life lessons I learn, things I’ve done, the people who influence my life, and just any random thing that pops into my head. As it turns out, people seem to enjoy reading it, so I have no reason to stop!

In terms of blogging tips, my main one is this – write about what you are interested in. Don’t write a post for the sake of it. By all means, pick a topic, but don’t force it. Also, dip your foot into the waters of the blogger community pool a bit – you’ll find really interesting people!

This is getting wordy. Oops. So, without further ado, here are my blog nominations (you will probably spot a theme here)

tastingeverything – This blog will make you hungry.
