The suspense is over

I’ve made my decision and I’m here to stay: for the foreseeable  future anyway.

I’ll have to post some interesting content of course and that is another challenge.

You’ve probably noticed that I’ve changed templates and I will be doing so again I’m afraid. I realized that just showing photos was only interesting for a time and that more varied content would be better. I find the current template better but the left margin takes up too much space. I’m off to research a better one.

I do intend to write more. It was fun writing microfiction and flash ficition and I’ll be attempting to write regularly over the coming months.

I think I’m a good listener and I love listening to what people have to say rather than express my opinions.

Ideally I would love my readers to ask me questions that I hope I would struggle to reply to but having that kind of interactions seems to be rarity.

I’ve had more friends ask me to continue blogging on Twitter and Facebook and in real life than comments made on this blog which is a shame. It’s really hard to build a community.

My aim is to enjoy what I post more than anything else.

I’ve illustrated this post with a detail from a silk embroidery in Nha Trang, Vietnam.


  1. I’m glad you’ve decided to stay Graham.
    I think most bloggers do so for their own benefit rather than for others’. It is good, though, to have a small group of regular readers who contribute to discussions, and to know that you have at least Mabel, Joe, and Betty reading most, if not all, is a nicety.
    Looking forward to your new look blogging.

  2. Glad you stayed 🙂 Quirky and different is always good in my book! We have entirely too much “cookie cutter” going on in this world today. Welcome back!

    Believe you me, I completely understand what you mean by, “it’s hard to build a community.” People have to be willing to engage, share content, etc and that’s not always the easiest thing to find. Keep going! You’re bringing a lot of people joy.
