Okay, so I haven’t blogged at all this year. Quite a hiatus. But there are some very good reasons for it!
First of all, in case you hadn’t noticed, I’ve got a new website! Hope you’re enjoying your visit. A lot of work has been going on getting the new site up and running, and porting the old blog across to it, and finally we’re here.
Secondly: there appears to be some kind of weird global pandemic on. I know, I almost missed it. The thing about the Rona is that it’s made finding blog content really quite tricky. There are no conventions to write about, and everyone’s heads have sorta turned to mush while going stir crazy. Understandable, but not an ideal creative environment. I joked at first that nothing had really changed for me – I work remotely all the time, don’t really see other people during the day, and like my peace and quiet. Unfortunately, with lots of companies placing staff on furlough, or sadly laying people off, it’s meant that my little remote network of colleagues isn’t what it was. Eventually it takes a toll, and output starts to slow down. Time, however, marches on relentlessly: it seems unbelievable that we’re halfway through Summer already.
