My 50th

Phew, a small milestone has been reached. If I keep going at this rate, I'll should reach 100 posts by February next year.

Those of you interested in the news and the way it is presented may like to know that the BBC have pushed some of their programme editors into the blogosphere. I get the impression this is an attempt at accountability and transparency, but you might see it akin to the internet equivalent of a good old fashioned pillorying. I say make the most of this opportunity, especially if you feel the need to rant, and let them have it with both barrels (metaphorically speaking of course). I've just made a couple of comments on the newsnight editors blog concerning their ill-advised experiment to drive a car bedecked with the English flag around parts of Scotland in the hope that it would get trashed. Tsk. Usual watershed etiquette applies, so anyone with the language skills of El B won't get on there unless they go in disguise and minds their p's and q's.

For those of you who missed the first few episodes of this blog, you can read about my last disastrous experience on the BBC breakfast news show here.

I saw the one about Kirsty Wark and Jeremy Paxman. I found it so hilarious I checked out your blog as a result :)

Welcome Hettie. I hope you enjoy reading the blog. I clicked on your link and found myself in a foreign land. Where was it?

Congrats on your 50th blog, Dr Jo. A glass of champagne to the next 50!

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

Make that a bottle Shebah. Hurrah for the blogosphere for allowing to bring myself to a wider audience. I'd especially like to thank Gorilla Bananas for making first contact.

The Blunt Coggers go mainstream!

Why don't we all start commenting on BBC blogs. Perhaps we'll get a mention on the Today programme eventually.

Congratulations on the first 50th.

Dr Joe,

I've eagerly been awaiting your next installment.

Could you ask Dolores if she would releast you for a bit so that you may post please?

I will be happy to send fake monopoly money as a bribe.

Dr Joseph McCrumble said...

Jude - Welcome Back and thanks

Beki - thanks to you too

Footy - Mainstream maybe. Let's all join in, eh.

Kim - Thanks. Hopefully I've got the stamina for another 50

Nikki - apologies for tardiness. I'll get the next bit up as soon as possible. Dolores has indeed been keeping me busy, as have various matters aluded to in recent blogs. Police involvement has prevented me from releasing details, but should be OK now. Watch this space
