As Murray Walker might say: “I make no apologies for my absence… but I’m sorry I’ve not been here”.In case the world missed it – which, of course, it didn’t, as nobody reads blogs now – I’ve been away for a bit.
It wasn’t really a conscious decision. I just found myself busy with other things to do and afflicted with a serious disinterest in both law and blogging. That’s something of a handicap when it comes to producing content for a legal-themed blog.I’ve thought about returning before now and I’ve even had a flick through some of my old posts a couple of times. But despite doing this, I couldn’t quite bring myself to start blogging again. The mere thought of blogging just felt a bit, well, tired and old, frankly. I’ve only come back today to have a cathartic whinge.
Aside from all that, Blogger seems to have thrown a wobbly interacting with Windows Live Writer and the freshly-released Open Live Writer. Trying to post to Blogger using the web interface makes blogging even more of a ballache. And my life’s full of enough ballaches at the moment.Tradition dictates that I should be putting together this year’s festive-themed header for Law Actually, but I’m not sure I can stomach it. You’ve all seen enough bells, Christmas trees, and frigging Santa for another 12 months I’m sure. I know I have.
