The Blog That Nobody Reads

I mean, seriously, it's Christmas Day. I could say absolutley anything in here and there'd be no one around to read it. Who in their right minds is going to be online at all? Well, me, obviously. Except....

Well, seeing as it's Christmas and there's nobody looking, I'll make a slight confession.

Come closer.

Closer still.

I'm not online at all right now. And, also, I haven't technically written a blog every day. I know, I know. Sometimes I've written a couple at once if I've known I'm not going to be near a computer much and then have set them to publish at the right time. For example, as I type at this very minute, it's still the afternoon of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is very much in the dim and distant future. The likelihood of me finding the time to write and publish a blog on the day itself is slim to none and I don't want to break my record...

Is that really cheating, though? I've still written an individual blog entry for each day and they've been posted on a daily basis. It's just that, a couple of times, I've got ahead of myself.

Maybe this is the kind of scandal that could shake the world of live blogging and lead to increased regulation. Pre-written blogs will now carry warnings before, during and after so as not to give readers any false impressions.

And, on that bombshell, I think I'll leave it.

Festive holiday greetings to you all. Eat, drink and be merry and remember to wear the elasticated trousers to accommodate post-dinner spreading.

Peace, out.

I'm gonna have to say yes - there's only so much disillusionment you can do in one week
