Sorry, I don't do requests

Today at work one of my colleagues asked something along the lines of "So will you be mentioning me in your blog now?". The answer was a resounding "No"...

While it would be easy to turn this blog into an online journal detailing every facet of my life, I am reticent to do that. While I could recount my daily doings in great detail, the minutiae of my life really isn't that exciting. Ask anyone who knows me, and they will be recount the sinking feeling they get every time I start an anecdote with "Well,..."

This isn't to say that friends and colleagues will never make an appearance - just that these will be the exception rather than the rule. And because "them that asks, don't get", I'll not be doing requests.

This policy does, however, make blog writing harder. Rather than reportage, I find myself looking for things to hang blog entries on. In the course of an average day, several ideas present themselves and get discarded, parked or forgotten! Hence the reason my blog entries have not been as frequent as I originally intended, for which I apologise.

That said, I think things are going reasonably well. Your comments are always appreciated. I'm keen to keep things varied and suggested titles or themes would also be welcomed. In addition, I also have some ideas for interaction in mind, once (if) my readership increases.

Minutiae is a good word - minutiae belongs to twitter. You know, where people say dull things in 140 words...
