You may or may not have noticed that things have been rather quiet on this blog lately. Well, it hasn't been because there hasn't been anything to write about!
I have been very busy and have found it difficult to find the time to update it, even when inspiration has struck, or more accurately when something has wound me up. However, more recently it has been because a few weeks ago I made the decision to close Process Guy down.
When I started blogging in September 2006, inspired by the success of the bloggers at that year's autumn conference, it was really just an experiment. My aim was to have a platform to sound off about things that interested or outraged me and to see if I could improve my writing skills. I didn't set out with the ambition to achieve a significant readership.
I am pleased to say I have managed to achieve all three aims!
As things developed, through leadership crises and presidential elections, I began to use the blog more consciously to attempt to influence opinion. Although, only within the online membership of the Liberal Democrats and with some, if limited, success.
However, the erratic nature of my blogging and the lack of focus in my choice of topics may have limited my ability to make a real impact. Also, let's be honest, many people have found the name confusing or off putting.
I have learnt a huge amount from writing this blog over the last two and half years but I have reached the limit of what I can do with it. It is time to say good bye to Process Guy.
However, this isn't the end of the story. I am not done with this blogging lark just yet. I intend to return with a new domain, a new blog, a move to WordPress, and a new approach.
Until then, good bye and thanks for reading!
