I'VE HAD many very sincere good wishes since I put my email address on my profile. I have thanked you all personally and privately.
My colleagues especially make me feel ashamed for being such an unsociable bugger over the years! I'm humbled and extremely grateful.
The goodwill of strangers I don't deserve. But I thank you nontheless.
As of now, the total readership of the dozen blogs has reached 5,996.
For the past few minutes, I've been waiting for it to teeter over the 6,000 mark to make a really sensational splash headline. But all to no avail alas as you have all fallen asleep with boredom.
Don't you realise I've now got as many readers as the Isle of Arran Shoemakers' Monthly? Show some respect, perlease!
I will try to be relevant and failing that, at least interesting. If I fail in either respect, I'm sure I will be hearing from you!
Judging by the Twitter followers, many of you are London based media types. So to broaden this blog a little, I will be doing some theatre reviews at the Rose Theatre, Kingston-upon-Thames which is a dynamic little venue set up by Sir Peter Hall.
I will extend this to include the Wimbledon Theatre, Richmond Theatre and the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford, Surrey. Another of my favourite venues is the Soho Theatre in the West End and I am currently in touch with them too about reviewing their productions.
Back to media matters. I'll do a follow-up tomorrow on my 'Scoops and Sales' blog and give you an insight on the story that proved to be the exception to the rule - The David Beckham Secret Affair investigation.
Thanks for following me and my ramblings. Adieu for now.
