Numbers and I have never got on very well together, I’m much more of a word person. That’s probably why I was under the impression that I started blogging on 6th February, 2009 when it was actually 2nd February, 2009. So I’ve missed it.
Not to worry, I just wanted to say that I really enjoy blogging and communicating with people that it would never have been possible for me to ‘meet’ otherwise. Visiting other people’s blogs expands my world which otherwise would be a fairly narrow one as I don’t often get out and about to meet folks, whether they’re in Anstruther or far flung Arizona.
I hope I bring a bit of interest and pleasure to people. I’m the first to admit that my book meanderings are very far from academic dissertations, that would be too much like hard work, I hope just to give a flavour of books which I’ve read.
I can’t help thinking that ‘Pining’ must have been a grave disappointment to the 663 people (youngsters I imagine) who got here one day, looking for my thoughts on John Buchan’s Greenmantle. That has been my busiest day for some time – by far. The poor wee scones won’t have found much that they could copy into their homework I fear – unless they were in very dire straits indeed!
Anyway, I’m looking forward to another year of blogging. I hope you all continue to hop by from time to time. I’m still not doing as much hopping as I would like to do because of our internet connection being fiddled with. I hope they sort it out soon!
