In accordance with the law of New Year’s Eve (albeit a little early), I bring to you the grand announcement of changes to what’s fondly become known as… erm… Oli’s blog. I say “fondly”, but it’s more just because that’s really what makes the most sense.
Obviously, the cosmetics are the most obvious part, but the content is changing, too.
Since the controversy of “the deleted post” – well, not really controversy, but more of a disagreement with certain readers of the blog – I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching about what this blog is all about and where’s it’s been going for the last few months.
I was sincerely toying with dispensing with it all together, before I realised that what this actually started out as was a place for me to keep track of the on-going changes in my life as I waited for – then received – a life-saving double-lung transplant. It was never really intended to be read by as many people as have stuck around from week-to-week and I’ve found myself slowing starting to write these posts for my readers and not for myself, which occurred to me as being totally against the idea of the blog in the first place and doubtless a part of the reason for trying to spice it up a little.
So I offer you all fair warning that from this moment on the blog will, once again, become boring. I will simply be keeping a record for myself of the head-spinning acceleration of changes my life is going through almost constantly now I’m over a year into my new life and am rapidly realising that I need to start doing something productive with myself.
New Year, new start (it was ever thus), so I will return to the good, but dull, old days of simply blogging about my life and goings on in my day-to-day life.
