Warning: This post was published more than 9 years ago.
I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!
But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:
- My views might have changed in the 9 years since I wrote this post.
- This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
- Factual information might be outdated.
- Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.
Many thanks for your understanding.
Today is my ‘blogging birthday’.
It’s four years since I started blogging with this post on The LBSC. And since then, I haven’t stopped.
To mark the occassion, thanks to the genorosity, confidence, and support of the team at Lulu Publishing, I’m launching a book containing over 100 of the ‘best’ political posts featured on the site.
I had hoped that the book would be published today, but unfortunately a hold-up at the distributor means that it’s not quite ready – but it will be available both online and through your local bookstore within the next few days.
It will also be available internationally, so my large cohort of US readers needn’t miss out. And if you are some kind of paper-shunning eco-warrior, there will be an ebook version published simultaneously. And readers of this site will exclusively be able to get their hands on copies before the book goes on general release. There’s a little bit more information for you here.
In the time sjhoward.co.uk has been around, it’s received more than six-and-a-half million hits – of which almost two-and-a-half million have occurred in 2007 alone. The site has won awards, been featured all over the place, and received over a thousand contributions from its readers.
So thank you for reading, thank you for contributing, and thank you for your ongoing support. As they say in the USA, here’s to “Four more years!”.
