That's Better, Tommy!

Ever since my debut on the blogosphere, I have had in mind that my pitch here should look a little more like a newspaper, the better to reflect my past life as a journalist and commentator in the press.

Of course, as I have absolutely no technical proficiency, and rely very much on my kind friend, Thomas Hamburger Jnr to host this blog, I am also, by default, reliant on his decisions when it comes to layout.

Anyway, I am pleased to report that, over a couple of pints last night I was able to outline to Thomas how I thought my blog should look. After all, if I'm getting all these visitors dropping in to read about mp3 players, prostitution in Oldham and Walthamstow Dogs, they deserve to think they've found someone of some substance - something my previous (rather washed-out) blog struggled to portray.

This is much better, Tommy - well done! I wonder what my reader thinks, though?

A 'RED TOP' I knew it! Quality always shows Mr. Blunt. Indeed, your friend's in need. Anyway, it appears impossible to comment on your item below [still] and I was v.interested in Oldham and all it has to offer.

your reader approves!

Bill Blunt said...

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry about the Google post: someone else has similarly had difficulties, and I'm bu**ered if Thomas or I can work out why.

Thomas Hamburger Jnr said...

daddy papersurfer: I have discovered that during a particularly heated discussion with Mrs Blunt, Bill accidentally hit the 'disable comments' button in the earlyhours of today.

I have reset the thing, so any comments you might want to make about Greater Manchester towns should now be recorded.

all looks splendid Bill... Your friend Mr THJr surely is a technical whizz.

Bill Blunt said...

Thank you penfold. I know THJnr will be pleased to know you like it, as he is a great admirer of your blog. I probably owe him another drink now.

Very nice, Bill.

The red matches the colour of your eyes.

Red top? I thought that was milk that tastes like chalk in water.

Very attractive Bill you have obviously taken the trouble to have your 'colours 'done and this colour definately suits you sir!

Bill Blunt said...

julian: thank you so much - I can't wait for Hove (oh, what a giveaway)!

70's Teen: That's a damn fine blog you have there, madam. I wonder whether you would be interested in meeting my son, Jasper? He's of your generation, and we simply can't get him to leave home just now. He shares your love of Donny, if that's any help.

I should say that the revamp of Bill's site was only made possible thanks to the wonderful information to be found at

It's a marvellous site, with easy to understand explanations.

Kind Regards
