Blogging Up The Works

And Finally....

So, that concludes the month of news posts. What have we found out other than I've become an old curmudgeonly blogger. (As oppose to a younger curmudgeonly blogger). One thing it confirms is that the majority of "news" is just bad news. Even looking at the top 5 stories each day there was very little to celebrate. Even the positive stories had a pessimistic twist in the tail. Certainly teachers seem to be under attack more than anyone else at the moment but maybe that is because I am more attuned to stories relating to the teaching profession.

When I used to be involved in the "self-improvement" movement one of the things they always preached was to avoid listening to the news, it will only bring you down. And I would say, looking at this months news, they were pretty right.

So tomorrow we have a new month. I've always thought Desert Island Discs would be fun but 8 records is way too few, so you're going to be getting 30 of them starting tomorrow.


  • Well done for doing a second whole month!

    And now you're going for a third?
    Are you mad?

    Stop it, man. For the love of God, stop it.

  • I can't, it's taken me over like an alien ship has descended and whisked me aboard, performed a horrific operation where an alien egg has been put in my body, hatched, and now controls my every thought, word and deed!

    Or indeed I might just be mad.

    I've been meaning to do this series for years so now's a good time but after this I might give everyone some time off to recover. That's assuming the alien life force lets me!

  • I'm glad that you are giving up the news, it really is just too depressing.

    Looking forward to your new venture, I wonder how much of your choice I will know.
