Somthing weird is going on with this blog.  A pattern is gradually emerging, and I can’t understand it.  Everything is going along O.K. in the week, yet at the weekend, I have very few views.  I can’t work out why this is though.  Answers on a postcard please (preferably at weekend lol!)

Anyway, what I’ve decided to do is just do small updating posts for the weekend, and perhaps add links to longer ones that I did in the week.  It seems the best idea, as large pieces of writing are hardly being seen at all.

My good intentions

 

 

My good intentions

Well so far I have managed to keep to all my resolutions……. well, apart from 5 and 6.  I am still concerned though about my archive as a lot of work has gone into them and it would be a bit tragic if no one read those posts.  Do people actually trail though archives though?  I quite like the automatic feature on wordpress though.  I always try to schedule my post to come online about 15 minutes past midnight, which is handy when I have to be in work, hence a short one tonight.

Help! I’m disappearing up my own archive!

 As the old year disappears and the New Year, once a distant shadow looms closer and closer: becoming more of a reality or possibility, it begins to occur to me that all the words I’ve wrote so far will ‘disappear’ into that seemingly invisible file called ‘Archive’.  That got me wondering if anyone actually reads what has gone before, or if this archive is actually a black hole that words disappear into.  Or even if this whole blog is a black hole!

 Maybe I am wasting my time: maybe I need to be more patient.  Or maybe it’s like ‘Sparks’ said; –
