|...It is now!|
Hello folks and to the very occasional regular readers of this blog. I just wanted to let you all know that this is going to be my last regular blog on here. I have been writing this travesty of the English language on and off for the past nine years and to be honest the actual reach I am getting from it is hardly worth it. It seems the only time I ever get feedback from people these days is when they contact me to complain about something I have written! The effort I put in writing it is not reciprocated by the number of people reading it, so rather than struggle on trying to regularly be funny and Tudor-ish, which is all I ever wanted this blog to be, I have decided to knock it on the head and just carry on making occasional comments on Facebook and Twitter.
To all the wonderful friends I have made through this page over the years, thank you for your companionship and reading all the crap - even that infamous blog that I managed to post whilst almost paralytically drunk which actually didn't make any sense what so ever. One of my regular readers even "liked" it on Facebook. That impressed me greatly. To my family, again, thanks for the blind faith and encouragement. To the wonderful Michelle Coda, thanks for everything bird. To Ian Weston and Sue English, for getting me into this mad world in the first place, many thanks! Who needs financial security! To the long suffering and very patient Amanda and James, thanks for understanding and encouraging me. To all my lovely Tudor ladies - Sarah Morris, Zarrina Bull, Diane Collings, Justine Cotterill, Tudor Lou, Katherine Miller and anyone I've forgotten, you are all beautiful ladies and an honour to rule with. To the Knights of Royal England - thanks for the fun, the companionship, the opportunities and forgiving my regular "strikes". To the wonderful Matthew Applegate, for his friendship beyond the call of duty. And to anyone I've forgotten - TA.
Good King Hal is now entering a very busy part of the summer. I shall try and blog from time to time, but it won't be anything regular, but if something special happens, it will be mentioned. And what with possible work in California, with a brand new massive Shakespearian database, and even teaming up with David Tennant shortly, I might be blogging more than usual!
Oh and can someone use a bit of weed killer on certain parts of Chatham and do everyone in the Tudor world a favour.
