A few updates about the blog…
Those who rely on the email updates for new posts won’t have got any updates for the last two or three days. Those reading the RSS feed won’t have had any updates either. There was a glitch that stopped the feed and emails going out. I have no idea where it came from and it took the website equivalent of lying underneath the car wielding a hammer to sort out. It now has been fixed, but I have no idea if the email update will include all the missed posts. And there were quite a few.
Just in case, the posts missing from the emails were:
Those posts include the first post by one of our new writers. We had a marvellous response to our request for volunteers. I’d like to thank everybody who replied. If we’d taken on all the skilled and experienced people who put themselves forward, I’d probably be running a blog with the staff level of a national newspaper. As a result, there was a large part of ‘first come…’ about it.
I’m delighted to welcome four excellent new writers: FT, Kit Molloy, S and SJM. Not only is that four new pseudonyms for some to try to work out (and I know there are some who do…), but our ‘out of London’ contingent is happily increased. I think the future of the blog is looking good.
