I’ve been aware for the past few weeks that I’ve come crashing into the blogosphere like I’m the first person ever to write and publish my thoughts on the internet, laying claim to an audience I don’t necessarily deserve, while other people have been conscientiously a-blogging away for years without making a great big fuss about it. It feels a bit like being one of those people who get into a band slightly after everyone else, and then buy twice as many T-shirts and name-drop B-sides to make up for lost ground. So today, in keeping with the ‘taking a bit of a break’ theme of my weekend blogs, I’m going to recommend some other blogs that you could profitably read. While you do this, I’m off to watch the rugby and be wee-d on by my son. A lot of people are far more familiar than I with the Kingdom Of Blogs, so if you know a good one, do leave a comment recommending it. Feel free to use this shamelessly to promote your own. I’m always using the internet for shameless promotion. I think I’m probably the first person to think of it.
tombasden.blogspot.com/ Witty, good-looking chap out of Cowards, and the second series of my radio show. Funny pictures, songs, and so on.
lloydwoolf.blogspot.com/ Witty, rake-thin chap out of Cowards. Amusing, low-key observation.
annawaits.blogspot.com/ Perceptive stuff about TV and other artforms by a thoroughly nice, and clever, TYSIC participant.
michaelleggesblog.blogspot.com/ One of comedy’s most celebrated blogs, foul-mouthed, misanthropic, bitter and funny.
tiernandouieb.blogspot.com/ An extraordinarily long-sustained blog by an amiable comic colleague of mine.
backofthenet.markwatsonthecomedian.com/category/soccermen/ Something a bit different here. My brother decided to become the world’s youngest international football coach. Now he is. This blog charts his odd story.
Enjoy these, and keep going with the challenge. I’ll be watching you. I have many eyes. Well, two.
