The dullest blog in the Economist

The dullest blog in the Economist

My dullest blog in the world appears in the latest issue of The Economist. From Analysing the web: Blog mining: “I NOTICED that the doormat was at a slightly crooked angle. I reached down and moved the mat back into its correct place.” Thus began a recent entry on The dullest blog in the world….

Any requests?

Any requests?

Top Episcopalian blogger Scott Gunn has noticed that I have not been drawing here much and has declared himself to be in a state of impaired blogmunion with me (See Denouncing Dave Walker), so I thought I’d post a cartoon. It is one I did months ago that has been sitting in a sizable ‘to…

Blogging from the G20

Blogging from the G20

Just to say (for those who aren’t fed up of me going on about it) that I’ll be blogging from the G20 meeting in London’s Docklands over the next few days. Details here. Barring technical malfunction (not out of the question by any means) I’ll be blogging in these two places: The Church Times blog…

Dullest blog on MSN

My ‘Dullest blog in the world‘ has received an unexpectedly large number of visitors today owing to an article that was on the front page of MSN for a while today. ‘The 11 lamest blogs on the Internet‘ originally appeared on a website called ‘PC World’ (not the shop we have in the UK) a…

I have been blocked from making Facebook notes

I have been blocked from making Facebook notes

I have written 7 ‘notes’ on Facebook during the last month, which the website owners consider ‘abuse’ as they have blocked me from posting any more. I had been using a facility whereby when you write blog posts they are imported into Facebook as notes, but it is obviously intended only for very occasional users….

My Spring Harvest diary

I’m at the Spring Harvest evangelical holiday camp for much of the coming week, and will be keeping a diary on my Church Times blog. In the meantime please forgive the lack of posts and delays in comment moderation on this site. Update: Spring Harvest: Day 2 Spring Harvest: Day 3 Spring Harvest: Day 4

BBC blogging guidelines

The BBC has issued a set of guidelines for its employees on blogging. The general message seems to be ‘talk to your line manager’. This guidance is part of a wider set of guidelines covering social networking and the internet and things like that. There are also editorial guidelines on the subject of religion, which…

Bishop Gene at Lambeth

I’ve posted a cartoon about Bishop Gene Robinson’s non-invitation to the Lambeth Conference on the Church Times blog. Also a brief observation on the fact that Wesley Owen are to be the official bookshop of the conference. Don’t worry – I’m not going to write something here every time I make a Church Times post….

Ask the Archbishops your question

Blogger Maggi Dawn will be interviewing the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in Cambridge this week and is asking for questions from bloggers (and, I’m sure, blog commenters). It looks as if lots of the events are ones you can attend too if you are in the area. See also: Website for the event, ‘A…

Methodist bloggers

Methodist bloggers

Some of the UK’s Methodist bloggers have been having a gathering this weekend. Note the dark brown cups as opposed to the pale green variety traditionally used by Anglicans. (Aside: If the Methodists and Anglicans ever join together the proposal is to have cups of a murky brown pale green colour.) The Methodists are way…

Blogging and suchlike

Blogging and suchlike

The ‘How to become a famous blogger‘ cartoon (excerpt above) which I was encouraged to draw last week as part of my ‘Cartoon Challenge Night’ has become an unexpected hit in a few segments of the internet. This is largely due to the fact that a genuine famous blogger, Darren Rouse, has posted it on…

The Christian Blog Awards videos

The Christian Blog Awards videos

Premier have kindly put various clips of the Christian Blog Award ceremony up on Premier.tv, their TV sort of site. The video of me receiving my award and giving my three sentence speech is here. You’ll need broadband I think. Dear me. I don’t think I come across very well, but then perhaps no-one thinks…
