See Spot. See Spot blog. Blog, Spot, blog!
Originally, I had planned to leave the subject matter fairly broad and eclectic, covering all my many (many, many) interests, from cooking to politics to languages to film, and so on. However, the success of my first series of posts on the "cartoon row" has left me convinced that the way to go with this particular blog, Random Platitudes, is to concentrate on the political / historical / current affairs / opinion piece style of blogging that I've begun with.
Which leaves me with nowhere to put all the other stuff that I'm interested in and want to blog about.
Therefore, I've been thinking of the best way to handle this, and I've decided to create new "sister" blogs to Random Platitudes, to handle the various groups of subjects that I want to blog about. The first of these, soon to be born, will be a blog on reviews (of film, television, animation, computer games, books, comics, whatever takes my fancy).
As I add more blogs, they will appear in the sidebar, under "RP's other blogs" (or a similar title). I hope you'll be so kind as to grace them with an occasional visit, and to give me your honest feedback.
As always, I am grateful to you all for taking the time to read my meandering and wordy posts.
