Pinch Punch

I really made a rod for my own back, with this, didn’t I?

Twelve years ago -when I set myself the challenge of writing a daily post for a whole month – I really did think that would be it: do it once, just to prove you can do it.

Only an idiot would try to do it again the following year.

And the one after that.

And the one after… well, you get the idea.

As with previous years, I approach this blog-a-thon challenge with trepidation. Because, every year, I think I’m not going to be able to complete it. And yet, somehow, I always do.

Of course, it helps when you have a two-week cruising holiday in the middle of the month, because that gives you something to write about.

But, I haven’t got one of those to fall back on this year. So it’ll probably just be endless posts about what I had for lunch and how the M25 is the worst motorway in the universe.

In recent years, I’ve been fortunate enough to be joined in my quest by our Midlands correspondent with a Welsh lilt: Brennig and also by our French correspondent with a decidedly (not quite Cockney) London accent: Dave. I don’t know if they will be joining me this month, but if so, I fear they may well be setting the standard.

    At least that is day 1 dealt with.

    • Masher

      Yep. Clever, eh? 🙂

  2. David Sheriton

    I will be joining you. (I will be girding my keyboard loins later today). But as for setting the standard I suspect we are both looking Brennig-ward.

    • Masher

      Good man!
      No pressure on Bren, then!

  3. Toffeeapple

    Hello again!

    • Masher

      Hi TA… been away?

  4. Brennig

    I am with you, but annoyingly last night’s post didn’t actually post last night. I shan’t be setting the standard. But I might read it. Now and then.

    • Masher

      Ahh, good man.
      “Eeeening Stanit!”

  5. Jules

    I think your day to day shenanigans will be enough for us to cope with, Masher.

    • Masher

      Ever the optimist, eh Jules?
