Church websites

This cartoon is now available in the latest updates section of CartoonChurch.com and can be republished by subscribers. It is an older drawing, hence the shading. I do not really do shading like that any more owing to the rising price of ink. Church websites I have been asked by someone to advise on making…

Things that I am not going to get involved with on the internet

I am telling you about these so that if you see me wasting time with them in the future you can point a finger at me and say “Aha!” Twitter Like blogging, but with single sentences. The idea is that you say what you are doing at this current moment, either via the internet or…

My Posada blog chain contribution

My Posada blog chain contribution

Today it is my turn to host the Posada chain blog / blog chain, originally started here by Andii Bowsher. I originally posted about it here if you remember. OK, here is what we are going to do. There will be the official Mary and Joseph picture, followed by a meditation done via some drawings,…

Blogging and the Church of England

David the Wannabepriest has written about his experience blogging from within one of the National Church Institutions: The staff handbook was silent on the matter. So I cc’d an email to certain overseers who I thought might be best to ask. They responded by asking me ‘what’s a blog?’. So I explained blogging to them…

Vote for JonnyB

Vote for JonnyB

JonnyB’s Private Secret Diary is up for an award in the 2006 Weblog Awards UK section. You can vote once a day up to a maximum of one time on any one day. Every vote for JonnyB is a vote for blogs about everyday goings on as opposed to all the political ones which are…

Walking the M62

John Davies has a new blog which will document the two month walk he is planning for his sabbatical in 2007. He will be walking along the approximate route of the M62, the motorway linking Hull with Leeds, Halifax, Manchester, and Liverpool. But why walk the M62? Many people given the chance for three or…

Bloggers for Martin Luther King

Bloggers for Martin Luther King

A number of bloggers have been dismayed to find that a white supremacist site site containing untruths shows up very highly (No 2 for me) when one does a Google Search for ‘Martin Luther King’. The site in question is martinlutherking dot org which I’m not going to link to and I’d ask you not…

The Rough Guide to dull blogging

The Rough Guide to dull blogging

I got a copy of The Rough Guide to Blogging (not an affilliate link as I have given up on Amazon) out of the library to see whether I have been missing the point all along. I was pleased to see that my dullest blog in the world is mentioned and in fact shown. It…

17th October 2006

I got up at 6.55am. This is earlier than normal as I had to finish a drawing. I am a cartoonist – I draw every week for the Church Times (the world’s leading Anglican newspaper founded in 1863) as well as selling my cartoons via the internet and doing some freelance cartoon work. During the…

The biggest blog in history

We want as many people as possible – tens of thousands of UK residents – to record a ‘blog’ diary of this one day to be by the British Library and others as a record of our national life. History Matters are organising the biggest blog in history tomorrow, the 17th of October. The idea…

AboutLife

Update (2015): The aboutlife.com domain has been taken over by someone else, so I have removed all links. I was pleased to discover that I have been made ‘blog of the week’ on this blog (link removed) on the AboutLife blogging system. AboutLife, if you have not come across it before, is connected to the…

The 50 most influential UK bloggers

The 50 most influential UK bloggers

PR Blogger.com has put together a list of the 50 most influential blogs in the UK. See prblogger.com » Tracking the conversation globally and locally. The list is only available as a excel file so I’ve copied it below. It is flattering to be included at No 31, but I think any such list must…

My Myspace space

My Myspace space

Myspace is the 6th most popular website in the world accoring to Alexa. It is No 3 in the USA, but only No 7 over here as we are partial to things like ebay and the BBC. For those who are unaware of it Myspace is a site that lets you set up a personalised…

The Daily Mail on blogging

Googlers and bloggers do not have an original thought between them. Their ruminations on tax reform, Europe, immigration, Iraq, security, education and the rest have already been googled ten times over by fellow bloggers copying their source material from some other blogger’s googling diatribe to the local newspaper. By the splendidly ignorant Daily Mail columnist…

Around the blogs this lunchtime

I am waiting for the opportunity to have lunch to arrive. In the meantime, various things I’ve read on blogs of a vaguely Christian persuasion over the last few days: Tractorgirl is coming around (in this post) to the view that the best blogs are not the “more oft read, better written ones”. She cites…

My 5 a day habit

My 5 a day habit

I posted 5 times on Tuesday. I don’t know why I do this. I think perhaps it is either because I have a lot to say or because I am unhappy. Blogging is the only therapy open to us cartoonists because we do not see a lot of other human beings and cutbacks mean that…

Cycling blogs

There are lots of cycling blogs of course, but these are three by people I know: Pedallingmythoughts Cycling blog by Ian, the brilliant but quirky youth adviser for the Oxford Diocese. His Youthblog is here and is called Youthblog, but it is his cycling blog we are interested in today. Lots of interesting and inspiring…

Blogging the Bible

What happens when an ignoramus reads the Good Book? David Plotz from Slate magazine is blogging the Bible. This introduction explains what looks like a very interesting project. Genesis chapter 1 starts here, whilst the latest entry (from Genesis chapter 25 at the time of writing) is here. My goal is pretty simple. I want…
