And so here we are. Well done, everyone. We have been collectively writing this computerised record of events and impressions for an entire year now. I don’t want to sound too much like an Oscar winner because it’s a dubious achievement to have rattled on about myself for 365 days straight. But thanks to all of you who have left comments, right from the outset when I was surprised by the response to the very first entry, a year ago today. Perhaps it is a bit pathetic to be so uplifted by the responses of complete- or near-strangers to some largely underwhelming thoughts, but hey, we all like to feel important. And on that note, especial thanks to the people who have become unwisely fixated on the continued unbrokenness of this blog, and in some cases staked unwise amounts of their mental health on the successful outcome of the (quite frequent) 11.30-midnight blogwatches. And yes, I do mean ‘especial’. It’s a word. This blog’s always been about learning something rather than just having fun, eh kids?
Rather than ending on this self-and-generally-congratulatory note, I’d like to let you know that if you’re not able to come to the live Radio 4 show next week, or not willing to for that matter, you can nevertheless pitch in by going to this link:
The theme of the show is Ambition and we’re asking for your stories of successful, or massively misguided, ambitions. Have you done anything really impressive or really awful as a result of ambition? Etc. There’s also a youtube clip asking for contributions along the same lines, but by now the page will have filled up with personal abuse, I expect.
But let’s not end on that note. It’s been a lovely year. May the remaining nine be equally satisfying all round. Thanks for reading.
