No, not Countdown with Ian “Molly” Meldrum, I’m talking about the fact that I only have 2 hours until the end of September and I haven’t posted this month yet.  I have been racking my brains out all week, trying to think of something to blog about, and I have come up with nothing (which isn’t surprising considering the condition of my brain).  So I might as well tell you what I have done today.

Today, I went to the Chemist to get the next month’s worth of drugs to keep me alive.  Then I went shopping to get some food to keep me alive.  While getting the groceries out of the car, I had a phone call from a good friend, drinking partner and my boss as far as Cricket Umpiring is concerned.  He wished me well for the season, which starts tomorrow and gave me encouragement, which is always welcome at the beginning of the season.

After putting away the groceries I got my Cricket Kit out and checked that I had all the necessary accessories; Panadol, elastic plaster, safety pins, sun cream, umbrella, spare bails, bowlers markers, counter, etc.  I cleaned my shoes, checked my hat (that I shoved in the washing machine last week and promptly forgot – yeah, not too bad).

So, am I ready for the new season?  I hope so.

I’m not going to comment on Cricket this season as I had too much flak from those who took exception to last season’s commentsRant, so you can stick it Up Yours

Oh dear, only one hour left in which to post this in September.

I notice that my blog has been going for just over one year now. I have attracted some hard-core bloggers, but nobody that wants to part with their money (unsurprisingly), and thanks to those who have clicked on my advertisements and earned me a grand total of 1 cent each and every month. I’m not complaining and don’t take it the wrong way. I didn’t expect my blog to earn anything, but I was hopeful that my linked sites may have earned something in the last 12 months. Times are tough, nobody is spending in the current economic climate, which is evident by the number of emails from Internet Marketers that last year were telling me not to bombard users with too many emails.WTF

Somehow, Countdown with Ian “Molly” Meldrum seems to send me back to a much simpler time.

  1. Well done Don, you managed to get your September post in, despite not having a clear idea what you wanted to write about. I don’t follow cricket so I won’t miss your cricketing posts, though I still think you should write about your hobby if something unusual happens…….31 days left for your October post…..

  2. Well done on the 1st anniversary of your blog Don. I think most people can aquaint with the lack of revenue from their blogs.

    I don’t get any ‘sales pitch’ emails anymore, that unsubscribe option has been well and truly used.

  3. Thanks John and Bill.

    And, yes, my emails are much more manageable since I used the “unsubscribe” option.
