About the Blog.

In what can only be described as a very self-indulgent post, I thought I would share a few facts about this little site of mine.

I wrote this after blogging for a little over 12 months, and I still wonder where the hell I am going.

Anyway, lets have a look at a few facts. This is my 1384th post. There have been 11,377 comments. I have blogging full time for a little over 12 months and it is thanks to you, and these guys who have supported the site.

And of course Lorraine Murphy, my ever-ready bunny agent. And the chicks in the office who look after the day to day stuff. That would be whip-crackers Rosalie and Emily, who I like to call Pocahontas.

Pocahontas, Lorraine and Rosalie.

How do I keep the content coming?

Well, I am an avid consumer of the media, so I get ideas there. Press releases from PR companies often provide good data of which a discussion can come from. I listen to the radio, read everything, watch people and observe life constantly. I write about my feelings and those of others. I dip my toe into politics now and again and get an absolute CANING for it. And I make notes.

I never schedule a post. I would not know how to if I tried. I just get the urge and go at it, hammer and tong. You should see the years I have added to the Editorial Team at The Hoopla’s lives!

My notes are written anywhere. Here are some notes that gave me some sort of inspiration, but alas never saw the light of day.

  • “The More Plastic surgery you have, the more detached you become from reality” – Patricia Cromwell
  • “To never have been morn is the greatest boon of all” – Socrates
  • “I don’t believe in luck. I believe in hard work. Dispair is the path of least resistance” Line from the film Match Point
  • At 4pm, 60% of people have no idea what they are going to have for dinner that night.
  • Why it is ok to be bored.
  • Why I have decided to be an asshole to my cat for 24 hours because he is an asshole all of the time.

So that may give you a little insight into running WoogsWorld. All of that…. and my secret weapon.

Kelly Exeter is the keeper of codes, the guru of all things website, designer legend and mistake fixer upper-er. Many times over the year, Kelly has bought the bl0g back to life as it teetered on the edge of death after I have decided to get brace and get into what is called THE BACK END. Laugh, I do.

“Kelly is in my back end….”

She never says no. She is always there. I adore her.

Anyway, I just thought it might be time to say thanks to them all. I could not do it without all the people on this page.

What do you want to see more of in 2014?

Food? Mundane? Parenting? Ranting? Farshin? Beeyootay? Travel?
