I was talked into first twitter and then blogging by my good friend MalBrown2, convener for the Greens on the Mornington Peninsula, and for all that a wonderful guy.
In the early days with WordPress every blog was a milestone, they gave you every encouragement with messages like “Well done, lad, another one like that and you will have written two, just four more and you’ll have made it to five”. This is accompanied by little quotes such as “I’m writing a book. I’ve got the page numbers done. Steven Wright”.
After a while the celebration of every fifth post subsides but the score continues to tick over and at last we reach post number 666.
Which reminds me of Mrs Satan who once complained “Six, six , six, that’s all you ever think about”.
