OK – this is random.  I am well now so what is the excuse this time for not posting more blog posts?

That is a great question even though I posed it myself.  There is no answer really though except I haven’t.

So well done those who set a daily target and just do it.

One such person is Robin Ince who clearly has much more discipline than me – AND – I find his blog posts amusing and he is a great observer of the absurd.

I have just been reading a few blog posts by Robin who is an author and broadcaster (I first heard of him presenting a science radio programme with Professor Brian Cox)  I found the posts very amusing.  One post was about insomnia and as well as clicking that I liked it I saw a link at the top of the page that I had never seen before marked reblog.  Now I am familiar with retweeting so I thought go for it!

Mistake,

How many times have I told Tom (son) Zoe (daughter) Babs (the one who is to be obeyed – the missus) not to just click things to see what happens.

What I expected to happen and what transpired – you’ve guessed it – were totally different.

I expected to be asked to login to my blog – this one you are reading now – and for it to just land on my site with all the references back from where it came.

Wrong.

After a lot of clicking about I found it on one of my clients blogs (well I did and didn’t) – it turned out that for some reason I was still logged into one of my client’s websites which I finished setting up for him about two years ago – and that is where the blog was reblogged.  Huh!   Sorry Shaan.  Except the page was headed up with the insomnia title etc but with also a 404 message that the page couldn’t be found.

If you have just found that last paragraph confusing so did I.  What is it all about – we are losing control of where our data goes.

The web has certainly turned strange since social media has developed.  Now everything is linked up to each other – a whisper in Poole Dorset can end up on a Pinterest- -Instagram-Facebook-Twitter retweet on a Japanese website.  It’s all out there now but not necessarily where you want it or expect it.

Maybe I am beginning to show my age.

Bah Humbug.

Yes!  I’ve posted a message – NOW can I do the same tomorrow?  You’ll have to come back then to find out.

Oh and that post by Robin Ince can be found at:
