I’m not entirely sure, if I’m honest, what this blog is for. I enjoy writing here, however infrequently it happens these days – something I’m forever pushing to fix. Sometimes I write about politics, sometimes even coherently! Other times I write about some new television show, or something equally as transient. Now and again I talk about myself and my life and where I am with it all. Mostly, I’m sure, you’re here for the bi-monthly posts just like this one, where I promise to write more frequently and more interestingly.
By now you’ve either zoned out or you’re on board for another attempt to get this blog back on the road. I’m promising only this: one post, about something-or-other, per week. That’s my minimum. Juggling the care of a toddler, a day job, family time and other things is something that was always going to eat into my writing; I wouldn’t have it any other way. But I like writing here. I’m always up late so that’s when I’ll write. You have my word (again).
If you want to spur me on in a 21st-Century way, you can try this new thing I’ve just found out about where you buy me a coffee or something? I’ve added a button up there at the top of that column on the right. There’s obviously no obligation, I’m not expecting anyone at all to be so generous. But there it is. I think the Millenials call it “monetising”. I’m trying to kick-start a career in magical entertainment. I’m a fairly proficient close-up magician (card tricks and the like) so it’s about time I tried to do something with it! A “Kofi” from a stranger would go a long way to helping me make that dream come true.
Now, I’m off to watch James Acaster’s Netflix specials. Chances are you’ll have a review of those on here soon. Also, I’m going to break down my magic obsession for you. I promise it’s not going to be as dull as it sounds. So, let’s get cracking!
