So, in order to post a comment on my friend Tony Cocks' Web Log I have to create one myself do I? Well if I must. But why oh why must the community insist on calling it "Blogging"? It's such a silly, lazy and contrived verb. So on here I will be hosting a web log. And rather than "blogging" about topics, I will be "writing" about them. You may recall being taught about "writing" when you were at school. When you were about 4 years old. The Internet may be a relatively new medium but it's not a new language. And the supreme irony for me is that the spell checker on http://www.blogger.com/ where this web log is hosted doesn't understand "blogging" and suggests flogging as the correct spelling. Well if I was Robert Kilroy-Silk I would probably say that flogging isn't good enough for these bloggers. (please don't think I agree with anything that Kilroy says - it's a joke :-)
