Goal Achieved. What Next?


I was going to do another in my series of Comic Book Artists, where I post some great images sourced from the web from artists whose work I admire and talk about their career and try to discuss what I like about their work. However, Blogger is having some issues with Image Uploads today, so that shall have to wait.…

Illness Means No Blogging


I think I’ve come to terms with the fact that I’m not going to ever do an entire year of posting daily, although it doesn’t mean I’m entirely happy about it. The first two unexpected sabbaticals in this year of attempted daily blogging had specific reasons, which I thought would be the limit of my absences. I was wrong, and…

Pausing For Reflection


I’m taking a moment in my daily blogging schedule to step back from my goal (of discussing all the various entertainments I’ve consumed and getting up to date on them) and think about my blogging, so feel free to ignore this self-indulgence on my part. I’m getting close to aim of being able to talk about comic books and films…

A Lost Weekend


It looks like I lasted 4 months this time before I broke my pledge to post something daily on this blog this year. I’m angry with myself that I didn’t post for the past three days, especially as I had already interrupted my run back in April, but I’m also angry with the manner in which it happened. Note: I…

Writing Every Day Is Hard. Who Knew?


This is one of those posts whingeing about maintaining a blog, so please feel free to skip this post and move on to something more interesting instead. I’m not having a problem with finding material to write about – I’ve decided to catalogue all of my entertainment consumption, which means I’m still catching up on the films I’ve seen in…

New Year, New (Old) Resolutions


I’m sure there are many other posts of a similar nature to this one – resolving to blog more frequently and talking about why the previous timeframe was devoid of regular posting – but that doesn’t stop me from doing it as well. One tries to be an innovator, but one can’t help being an imitator. I obviously don’t have…

Buffy Brings Me Back


No, I’m not dead. I’ve felt like it sometimes, but that’s just work for you. So, with a mix of serious work overload, fatigue and a few days off for a break, no blogging for some time now. This regular blogging mularkey is tough. Enough with the angsting, and get with the writing. Another reason for lack of blogging inclination…

Running On Empty


I got nothing today. I feel bad about it. I didn’t know what to write about. I think it’s because I’m more a reviewer than anything else. I love talking about things I have seen or read; it’s something I’ve always done. When I was younger, I wanted to be Barry Norman (no relation) doing the Film programme on BBC1.…

Pondering your opinions…


I didn’t post yesterday because I was thinking about what I did in asking for people’s opinions and thinking about the comments that were left in response. I’d like to thank everyone who took the time to leave a comment; I really appreciate it and read what you said with interest. The evening after publishing the post, I started to…

Now, I want YOUR opinions…


Having accepted the Blogaround challenge (in this post) and then reading that Evan very kindly said nice things about me in this post, after I emailed & blogged some constructive criticism of his site after he asked for opinion of his site, and saw that he got some good criticism from other kindly comic bloggers, it got me thinking –…
