Is there life after blogging?

I have always felt that as a hobby the internal bickering and general comings and goings of Leninist grouplets was marginally less interesting than brass rubbing. I'm sure that most people feel the same way about anarchist blogs, so I'll make this brief. My techno-probs continue. BT seem to have left me with no Hotmail, YouTube or Google Analytics. I can no longer comment on other blogs and Blogger is now without all the bells and whistles (spell check. hyperlink, italics, all that stuff). This seems like a good time to take a break from blogging and perhaps have a look at the real world. Talk to real people. If you see me in the pub come and say hello while I still have the power of speech. This blog may return, or not.
( Edit: It turned out that none of this was down to BT at all. It was actually a problem with my computer )

There is life after blogging, as living proof I am no longer snookcocker the blogger, I am now snookcocker the twitterer. Less thought and no research needed for twittering.

yeah, I maybe know what you mean, 18months is all I could do before I realized I was just looking for stuff to blog about or looking for excuses not to blog.
I'm sure it's just your original settings that got screwed in the chageover, ask someone to sort it for a cuppa and cake, sure to be someone who'd be willing.
Don't delete the blog, it's a good interesting read - I enjoyed it - and when you sort out the PC madness you may want to rant about something that gets your goat... who knows, never say never (and other cliches).
And snookcocker is right about twitter, but maybe harder work to get people reading/bothering. It's more like a busy pub conversation than a personal magazine.
Cheers, Ray, I shall check back (as I have done since end of '08).

Don't do it Ray.

I don't mind being purely selfish.

Kick the computer, have a cup or glass of something, sleep on it, and then get blogging.

See you back soon.
