Seven Year Hitch

This month, April 2019, sees seven years of the Calmgrove blog since I hitched it to WordPress (although I’ve since reposted revisions of some of those early posts and deleted others).

Now, it was a score or so of years ago that I started hearing more and more about weblogs appearing online. My first instinct had been to think it ridiculous for people to put out personal diaries into the ether: whoever would want to read about the lives of random strangers?

As I warned readers nearly three months ago, that hiatic moment in blogging is imminent, the lacuna in posting is nearly at hand, the break in calmgrove continuity is virtually upon us — so here is the advice given on August 30th to help you avoid feeling bereft. Meanwhile, sister blogs MyNewShy and Zenrinji will be reverting to that good old television standby — repeats — until such time as the promised normal service resumes. Which will be as soon as possible! Remember: keep calm and carry on reading…

At some time in the imminent future — but not immediately — we shall be moving house, resulting in a hiatus in blog posting. DON’T PANIC!

(Yes, I realise that you won’t necessarily be thinking that the end of the world, or the end of your world, has come, but the thought helps inflate my already tiny ego.)

When this moment arrives you can assuage your anxiety by following these simple guidelines:

1. Reread this post. It’ll help calm your nerves (the clue, by the way, is in the title of this blog).

2. Read the other pages on calmgrove if you haven’t already. Some good stuff here — Holy Grails, Arthuriana, Exploring…

3. Click on Random Post this can usually be accessed via the calmgrove icon top left corner of your screen. Warning: don’t mix this up with Report this content just because they both begin with the letter R. And don’t be confused when the drop-down includes fewer and different choices.

4. Find your favourite recent post, scroll down and click on Related which — by the magic of the WordPress backroom androids — should lead you to posts you may have missed on the same or a similar topic.

5. Above all, during this period of uncertainty DON’T PANIC! Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible. Just remember, keep peeking at calmgrove. And carry on reading.
