I’ll do my best to have it waiting for you each Saturday morning, but there may be some teething problems as I get my head round a new deadline, the time difference and – most crucially – remembering to put the post up after I’ve written it.
I’ve had a legendary team of subs (hi Ros! hi Cindy!) to do that part of it for me for the past twelve years, so I’ll have to get on top to the extra discipline.
And, over time, as that becomes a reflex in my working life, I’m hoping you will be able to make reading this online part of the delicious weekend routines and rituals that so many of you have told me about on my other blog, when you heard the column wasn’t going to be in the paper anymore.
Ah, yes, the other blog. I am going to keep that one going, as the reading record it started off as . I also have plans for a third platform, on more general topics (it’s a full life…) and the idea is to bring it all together in one website, which should be ready to fly in the New Year.
I’m rather excited about properly engaging with the brave new world of blogging I find myself thrust into. I’ve wanted to do get more active on line for a couple of years, but held back for fear it would stop people buying the paper.
Now I am free of such trifling concerns (so last century…) and hope that you will hop aboard the flume ride with me.
