Just a very brief note to welcome Ian as a follower of this blog.
You can find the link to his blog in the usual place – as you can for a number of my fellow bloggers who are always worth reading. Please do take the time, if you can, to look at their blogs too – they're all interesting and not-quite-mainstream.
At this point in time, I've chosen not to 'monetise' (ie, make money through advertising) my blog. I'd rather people come to it for the content and have no desire to put them off with commercialism. Besides, it'd probably fairly be argued that that would be rather hypocritical of me. So just occasionally – bear with me – I'll promote something myself.
I'm sure that you all understand.
And this is also an ideal opportunity to thank all of you for your loyalty in coming back here and reading, time and again.
Without you, this would be a totally empty exercise!
