Updated October 2013
This will be my last posting for some time, most probably until into next year. While my blog "hits" have slowly risen my regular readership has remained relatively static. And while some blogs have been very successful others have been spectacular failures. Based on the time and effort to do justice to maintaining a reasonable standard of blogging I shall therefore be taking a break for the time being. I really have enjoyed putting my personal "stamp" on the subjects I have written about and these very much reflect my own interests.
Meanwhile I am finishing off researching and writing a very large family history then will be enjoying the Southern Hemisphere spring and following summer season and holidays. I will, as usual, also be indulging in my favourite recreational summer past-time of cycling. I do however hope to be back blogging with at least one new series about February or March 2014. This series will feature many more of my personal treasures but remaining with a Scottish historical theme.
Engaging in blogging has brought me into contact with some amazingly diverse and truly fascinating people with many common interests, some of whom I would count it an honour to one day meet in person. Thank you especially to Tom, René-Michel and Cyril. You know who you are. Meanwhile I shall of course be more than pleased to respond to any queries or feedback posted on any of my blogs.
I will also continue to read daily those updated blogs on "My Blog Roll". The most recently updated blogs are always at the top of the list. These blogs also very much reflect my own diverse interests and I thank those bloggers for their own very hard work.
Again, thank you for your interest and support thus far, it has been appreciated.
Adieu, until we meet again next year,
