Sunday, April 1st – which I believe is March Fool’s Day, here in England – will be the day when a small minority of people following me wonder whether the end of the world has actually come, because I’m going to be taking a break from blogging for a long while and that also means the automated tweets will be stopping.
This isn’t even an advanced March Fool’s Day joke, so those of you who look forward to the bliss of browsing Twitter without seeing my moody, black and white face popping up in their timeline every 3.24 seconds can actually start the countdown to your celebrations with confidence.
I would really like to pass on my appreciation to everyone for their patience over the past couple of months, while the auto-tweeting was cranked into full effect again. I know it must have been a little painful at times, but a lot of good stuff was achieved since the start of February.
The blog had over 130,000 views during that period and, as much as my writing can help, it seemed to reach a lot of people who really needed it, and at just the right time… albeit, the tactics I used made that ‘right time’ about once every twelve hours for older blogs and between 30 minutes and an hour for the newly posted ones.
But anyway… thank you all. Without you, nobody except Keira Knightley and the police would read anything I wrote.
There will be a few more blogs coming before the end of the month – and perhaps a few ‘specials’ now and again - but the blogging is going on the backburner, at least until the Autumn.
This all said, I’m likely to be on Twitter much more when the blogging stops, and actually interacting with people again, rather than chasing my replies and trying to get the schedules loaded before I get to sleeps.
From April onwards, though, I’m going to be concentrating on making some money and dragging myself out of poverty, and there may well be an e-book guide to social networking excellence coming along very soon… that I hope I can plagiarise and pass off as my own.
Also, definitely going to be cracking on with The Wise Boy at last! At least 8 people have promised to buy the finished book, and that’s a cash-cow right there that will see me cool for rice stocks for the next year.
So… that’s my news!
