When you post a blog entry every day it becomes part of your life, and like your life it has bits that are OK, bits that are fantastic and bits that are bloody awful.
Sometimes I really look forward to posting something, particularly if I’ve been thinking about it during the day and formulating thoughts for it, I love sitting down and turning those spurious thoughts into something which satisfies me on the screen and then pressing the ‘Publish’ button.
Other times I dread it. Usually those are the days when I just haven’t got a clue what I’m going to post. I usually write and post late in the evening and it gets posted around midnight.
In a few days’ time I’ll have posted something every single day, wind, rain or shine, Christmas and bank holidays, whether I’m at home or away, during periods of joy and deep sorrow for four years of the six years’ life of this blog. There can’t be many blogs that achieve this, let alone police blogs.
It’s getting more difficult. I probably won’t make 5 years.
