Sailing close to the wind
A couple of my recent posts surprised me by their relevance.
I wrote a post giving five reasons I am voting “No” in the referendum. I then got a stat spike and discovered the post had been picked up by a national newspaper as part of their referendum debate. I felt a bit sick. Then it disappeared from their site, and I was disappointed. Then it reappeared, and I was happy to see it back and stopped feeling sick.
I felt that the fact that my post was picked up does prove a little bit of a point about Scotland and its tiny population.
The second post that jumped out to surprise me was “The English Channel?” where I linked to a YouTube of James “Gideon Mack” Robertson. Then the very next week I went to a conference – and at questions, I thought, “My, that voice sounds familiar”! Here’s me listening to him on repeat for a few days and – ta-da – there he is! So I went to say hi. Managed to avoid the line “Love your work” but it came close. Luckily I wasn’t 100% sold on Gideon Mack, or I might have said it…
So, after a phase of teetering on a precipice of relevance, I fell into a contemplative lull.
Hoping to shake myself back to regular posting without ending up back in the national press…
