What’s wrong?! What’s wrong?!
“Nothing, just wanted to capture your attention.”
(Ducks to avoid flying saucepan to the FACE).
Now that I have it, I wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who has read this blog so far. I know I added a small postscript at the end of the last post but that didn’t do it justice.
Been soul-searching a bit over the last couple of days as to the why, the how, the what, the who, the where, the what now… what am I saying… oh yeah that’s right, been soul searching for what’s truly important to me. You know it’s like in the great stories, Mr Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger, they were. And sometimes you didn’t want to know the end. “Sniff” (pulls out an over-sized, well worn, plaited handkerchief and looks into it with sad, forlorn eyes).
Samwise is so cool, he’s a one man/hobbit, spider stabbing, Gollum punching, barmaid fucking badass motherfucker. If Sam can have a moment accompanied by a symphony ensemble, then fuck it so can I.
Just like how Mr Frodo really matters to Sam, one of those items which really matters to me, I have come to realize, is this blog.
That’s it though ain’t it? I’ve stumbled into something which has ignited my passion and work on this project every single day.
However after watching Lord of the Rings, I realized you can’t accomplish tasks alone – you need a prancing Elf, an alcoholic dwarf and an emo named Strider. For those of us who don’t have these 3 to call on we can just make do with feedback. Other people giving you their opinions and thoughts. Whether you listen is up to you, whether you implement it is up to you, but be grateful someone took the time out of their life to give you a moment’s notice to praise, criticize, laugh, curse and read your work. They didn’t have to do that.
I’ve received lots of praise and private messages of support (thanking you again) however I need more feedback guys! What do you really think!
How do I improve? How do I make it even better for you guys? Give me as much feedback as I can handle and then some.
Please comment, subscribe, message, share, reach out and let me know!

Hey mate – I like how you keep it short, quirky and personable. Mixing it up with the pics is good too. Maybe you can add some gifs too. Is there a way you can include tags upfront so we know what the story relates to? Means we can search up historical articles based on tags.

thank you for the feedback – much appreciated! Yes, will definitely consider gifs (damn why didn’t I think of it!) and investigate the tagging aspect also, “whew” glad to hear you enjoy it as well
