Well I have finally hit the 15,000th visit to my blog, and things are picking up so fast I’m astounded. Lord Kelvin, Heroquest, Futurism and the discussion about Science and Religion make up most hits, with a few people who know me reading it for the general wittering about my dismal life, parapsychology and I suspect the odd person who is looking for something completely different and gets very disappointed on arriving here!
I have not had much time recently to post, I have been incredibly busy with cats, friends, and psychical research. I did return briefly home to East Anglia to see my parents and have been as usual immersed in working on books, planning events and running roleplaying games – Geist, the New World of Darkness game, Ars Magica, Call of Cthulhu and Unknown Armies if anyone is interested!
My life is changing quite fast at the moment, and despite many set backs and disappointments I feel confident that being forty is not as bad as many folks imagine. I’m actually quite happy, and desperately trying to sort out a postgrad, but as always funding still seems incredibly remote. Still I have found one possibility which excites me, and hey, I’m trying. What is clear to me is that I need money, and fast, and that I am profoundly psychologically ill suited to trying to make money — I simply don’t like charging people, I find it embarrassing, always have. I expect one day I’ll overcome this, which might reflect a deep seated lack of confidence in my own abilities, that what I can offer is actually worth anything, but hell I’ll have to get past it if I am going to have a future. I’m just not sure where my talents if any lay, outside of working in a university.
Well as always with these updates let’s end with a quick look at the latest search terms used by those who find my blog —
“invisible woman loitering” — an all time favourite, I have no idea! Great though!
“norfolk (uk) geology” – er, boulder clay as I recall, over chalk and sandstone outcrops? The Breck, Fens and North Norfolk coast are all fascinating. But why this blog?
“demolition puts nuns on the run” – I’m speechless!
“easter fart” – looking for a South Park episode maybe?
“massage mediums” – there could be a gap in the market. Which is more reputable? 🙂
Jokes aside, I think things are going OK. Hopefully I’ll have more time to update the blog soon. Take care everyone, and thanks for reading!
