About this Blog
This is exactly the sort of page that I should spend more time contributing to…
A few things specifically about this “blog”.. Firstly, it hasn’t been here since 2000, it used to be hosted on LiveJournal, but I got supremely bored of that, and wrote an application to pull off all my content and comments and move them here. Tada.
I’m particularly (and inexplicably) interested in the local history of the village in which I grew up, in spite of having gone through several years of resenting it. I have since managed to get over that, and have spent a fair bit of time documenting the ways in which it has changed, since the turn of the last century but also since its expansion in the ’60s and ’70s. I couldn’t explain why this is of interest, except perhaps the fact that to the best of my knowledge, nobody else is doing this sort of thing right now, and I kind of feel like it needs to be done.
In between articles about local history, there’s a lot of political type rambling. Being thoroughly untrained in actual politics, I make a lot of it up as I go along, but it all kind of seems to fit. I’d go on to explain my views, as would befit an “About” section, but I think that on balance it’s probably very obvious to anybody who bothers to read this blog what I feel about politics in general, so any additional content here would be entirely redundant.
