Make Sure Someone Else Pays

"Shhhh! Don't let the boss find out"When I started blogging after the 2006 local elections it wasn't long before I realised that this can be a time-consuming activity. Well, to be more honest, it wasn't long before Linda pointed out to me how much time blogging was taking away from her and Augustus. The worst bit is bank holidays, when you want to hit the keyboard but the family wants to go to Legoland, or visit the in-laws or get out in the sun. At first this was a problem, until I suddenly realised that whereas blogging in general hits peaks during holidays - with maximum contributions and readerships - political blogging hits a trough at these times. How could this be? And then, of course, it dawned on me. Politicos don't blog in their own time. They don't even read other peoples' blogs in their own time. They read and write during the boss's time! Once I'd caught on, life became so much easier. Cheers, Colin.

P.S. Before any smart-arse makes a comment, I'm posting this during my own time today because I've got other personal stuff that needs urgent attention at work tomorrow morning.

Nonsense. Just carry on blogging. It's all great PR for The Juggernaut. Just keep sending in the visitor stats on a Friday afternoon.
