The more astute of you will notice that I occasionally “repeat” a post. I do this because I receive emails from less frequent readers who feel that I am posting material faster than they can read it, as such. As a result, I repost posts that I feel are worth reposting because a) I liked them(!) and b) so many events in Irish politics are so repetitive (How we deal with scandals, for example) that I almost have a universal one-size-fits-all opinion for them.
I will continue to attempt to post new stuff at least during the week, and occasionally at weekends.
Finally, let me just say how appreciative I am of the people who do read and comment and email me about stuff on the blog, even those who disagree with nearly everything I say, from their eurosceptic lair (You know who you are). I try to accomodate people’s requests, post suitable guest blogs (Always open to suggestions) and to the best of my knowledge I have only ever refused to post one reader comment, from a chap who wanted to post what can only be described as a tract. I have edited some comments, in the interests of libel, but aside from that everything goes up.
When I started it, it was mostly as an outlet for mates of mine to read my regular rants, and when it supassed 100 readers, I remember thinking “Do I actually know 100 people?”. Now it’s in the thousands, which is still very modest for a blog but far, far more than I ever expected.
