I’m on Bloglovin’, so come love my blog

Follow my blog with Bloglovin. I had to post that link to prove to the Bloglovin’ robot overlords that this was indeed my blog. Well it is, thank you very much, good sir.

But, since the link says ‘Follow my blog on Bloglovin”, you might as well do that very thing. Here are some reasons why this is a good idea:

  1. It’s totally an easy way of keeping up to date with my posts. I think the people who followed my blog on WordPress were cast adrift when I transferred to a self-hosted site. I miss those people and often spend days staring out of the window waiting for them to return, like an 18th century fisherman’s wife staring at the horizon for signs of her husband returning. Or Keira Knightly at the end of the third Pirates of the Caribbean film.
  2. There is many a blogger on there just waiting to be discovered. If you’re the kind of person who likes quality blogs – and you totally are, because you’re here, obviously – you’ll find a veritable smorgasbord of written wonders. Just don’t abandon me entirely in favour of other people, or I will have to get vengeance on those superior bloggers. There have been television crime dramas with more ludicrous plots.
  3. It’ll do wonders for my self-esteem. I’d like to look at a number on a screen and know that it in some way correlates to my popularity. Having a number (I’ve only just got onto Bloglovin’, so even just 10 would be a good number to start with) on the screen that corresponds with the number of people who regularly want to keep in touch with whatever it is this blog is about will make me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Like a camel who has just swallowed a pair of microwaveable slippers.
  4. There are other reasons. But I don’t want to give away all the goodies right now. No, sir. So instead, go to the car park of your nearest supermarket at 3am tomorrow. I shall send further instructions.

Farewell for now. See you on Bloglovin’.


Hello everyone. In order to create the best possible experience for everyone using my site and reading my blog, I’m transferring from a WordPress blog to a privately hosted WordPress site. For you, this means you’ll be visiting the same URL, but having a much better time of doing so – a nicer website to navigate, more content, and all arranged in a nice, easy way to explore.

HOWEVER, due to the transfer process, if you follow me using the WordPress Follow option, then you will no longer receive posts from me in your WordPress Reader.

TO KEEP RECEIVING POSTS FROM ME, you need to sign up with your email in the widget to the right of my blog posts. If you already follow me via email, sit back and relax, as you don’t have to lift a finger.

Please take a few seconds to enter your email address – I really like having you read my blog and talking to me, and I’d hate to lose your follow. Plus, you’ll miss out on great things in the future, such as the release of my novel, Fallen on Good Times, some other projects I hope to be working on in the near future, and no doubt a prize or two.

See you soon on my snazzy new site!
