Blog Update

Wednesday, 15 July 2009

Just a quick note to thank all of the members of this blog for what has been a fairly successful trial period.

When I had the initial spark of inspiration that caused me to start this up, I had no idea others would join and contribute in the manner that you have. It's good to see such a wide range of centre-right and Libertarian views in one place.

As for changes to the blog, I have removed the 'labels' list as it was growing increasingly long and was starting to become pointless. Instead, I have now put in a blogroll and would like to invite other contributors to recommend their favourite blogs that should be must-reads. I have added a few of the big names to start with, but would appreciate some more for the list so please let me know what you would like to see featured.

Other than that, thangyaverymuch. Ah-huh.

Congratulations, your Elvisness - this has rapidly become a daily 'must read'!

As for blogs worthy of recommendation, I'd suggest EU referendum, and the valiant Biased BBC.

I can't agree with you about the awful Ian Dale, however. He strikes me as the worst sort of wet Tory, forever sniping at UKIP in a most childish way and puffed out of all proportion to his importance and originality by the MSM.

His desperation to grease his way into the Commons so he can have David Cameron's hand up his backside while he chants 'gottalgeer' is a wonder to behold.

I too have been watching how this group 'blog has fared, and I have to agree that it is doing a very good job.

I was right to treat it as a "Top Site" in my own blogroll, and the excellent contributions that continue to be posted here bear out my initial confidence. Sometimes one just knows when something is special…

I have this evening suggested to Prodicus that it might be worth joining in here:

His latest post in particular is a corker, and would fit in well with this 'blogs aims.
