I've never written a diary, but in less than a week, it will be a year since I wrote my first blog. Over the subsequent twelve months, I have added articles that have varied from the random "on this day" style stories, to intensely personal pieces. The blogs have charted the ups and downs that most people will go through in a year, but obviously in a far more public forum that a traditional diary.
I have decided to take all the blogs, along with the comments that readers have been kind enough to add, and turn them into a book. My request is this... please will you leave a comment after this blog... my "record" is seven comments but who could deny themselves the chance to be preserved in print for all of posterity?
Feel free to say something nice about me... or tell the truth if you have to. Just a reaction to the idea of a book of blogs... anything really. Just please take a couple of minutes to add a few words and by the end of next week, the book will be finished...
By the way, 199 people visited my site yesterday - the second highest number ever! Hopefully, a similar number will read this blog and then be desperate to order the book (and yes I know you could just click through all the articles, but it's not really the same... is it.. is it?!!!). So this is just a quick thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read what I've had to say... here's to another twelve months... and maybe even a volume 2!
All my own work... almost.
