As of January 7th, this blog is one year old. Which is rather impressive given when I started it, I didn't really think I had that much to say. Actually, who am I trying to kid... I've always had lots to say, I just didn't think anyone would listen. So thanks, dear reader, for listening (reading) what comes into my head, and I hope you will permit me to take a moment to navel-gaze...
317 posts in one year... not bad going I suppose (though nothing like the excellent but slightly blog-crazy Jeff's total of 678!), interupted by an ill-health enforced absence during the summer. And it has been an interesting year.
My year in blogposts:
- January: The beginning, American primaries and Labour scandal
- February: The Budget, more American primaries... and more Labour scandal
- March: Obama impresses me, Wendy Alexander doesn't
- April: Supporting Tibet and supporting the right to give blood
- May/ June: off sick
- July: Glasgow East - prediction and my reaction
- August: Foulkes on trains, Iain Dale's Top 40 Scottish Blogs and Sarah Palin
- September: STB retires... then changes his mind, Tom Harris rallies against democracy, Scottish football... well, isnae very good and I left Parliament
- October: The Economist tells it like it is, US election heats up and I predict a Labour hold in Glenrothes
- November: US Presidential liveblogs, Obama elected, Glenrothes liveblog, Damian Green arrested
- December: A very Canadian mess, and defending Christmas
So that was my year, a staggering 23,000 hits. I hope this year is as entertaining (blog-wise!).
