Thinking allowed — 31 July 2018

Recently one of East-Anglia’s most prolific bloggers was good enough to publish an extract from Pootling around London.

BeetleyPete started blogging only 6 years ago, but in that short time has developed a strong following, many of who are prepared to spend their time writing comments.

My contribution to Pete’s site has 19 comments alone.

A HUGE NUMBER, at CabbieBlog getting that number of comments in a month would be remarkable. Check out BeetleyPete for his output of thoughts, opinions and general interest posts. Also, next month on CabbieBlog Pete is subjected to a London Grill.

. . . And Angst

For nearly 10 years, twice a week I’ve written about London. Come rain or shine these nuggets have appeared on Tuesdays and Fridays. Unfortunately recently I have sustained an injury making it difficult to write. With the NHS in crisis, I cannot in all confidence anticipate when I’ll be able to write over 1,000 words a week.

Much as I dislike discussing health problems, we men are always reluctant to talk of such matters, I feel that I owe it to you, dear reader, to keep you informed.

For the foreseeable future, some posts will be regurgitated material from past years. Newer followers will have the advantage of perusing these posts for the first time. For more seasoned devotees of CabbieBlog, a small reminder will appear signifying the original date of publication.

Those of you who have generously committed to supporting CabbieBlog via Patreon, I’m hoping still to publish Pootling around London twice a month.

Thank you all for taking time out of your day to support CabbieBlog and hopefully, we’ll be back on road in the not too distant future.
