A month is a long time…

9 03 2008

So The Cowfield is one month old. Lots has happened in that one month, both in my life, and in the wider world. I’m not sure I’m the same naive, foolhardy person I was a month ago. I am sure that as a person I fall somewhere between the ‘realist’ and the ‘idealist’ category, more probably landing on the latter side.

In terms of a blog output I have been writing more than I ever used to, just to make sure the field stays fresh with opinion on local and national topics for those of you who actually still read this. I have added certain things to the site, including the ‘quote of the day’ and ’causes’ pages, the latter being things which are important to me. This list will, I’m sure, keep growing as things cycle in and out of my recognised conciousness.

There are, as with many things, still things I want to sort out (small things that I only notice when I re-read the blogs- spelling, grammar etc) in order to make this as good as possible.

And there are plans in the pipeline too, I am considering inviting some people to ‘guest’ blog at some point, but that is just a hope at this stage. I am also thinking of developing a further page of the blog to look at things which interest me outside of sport and politics. As those ‘avid’ readers will know I am fond of Robert Frost’s poetry, and am considering starting a page with some form of comment upon various works from various poets. But only when the time allows. It might not even be poetry, a discussion of books and authors too could be an interesting thing to pursue, an online book-club if you will. These are still being considered at the moment though.

The important thing to consider from all this is the readers. A small but growing readership was an inevitable consequence of branching out into the world of blogging by myself, and I hope that this will continue to grow over the coming months. If you like what I write, or even if you don’t, I encourage you to link to my blog so I can read what you are saying about various things. In essence, spread the word of The Cowfield.

But the one thing I would love to see more of is debate. I hope that through my writing I say some things which may be controversial to some people. I would love to be a stimulus for a topical debate on any given subject, and I would love to see more interaction on a wide range of topics, from sport, to politics, to the monarchy to poetry.

This first month has been good. But there is much more to come I hope!
