My short sabbatical from blogging is over! Thank you all for keeping my readership figures up in the meantime.
I’ve spent the last few weeks completing a couple of projects (more about them soon) and tying up a personal loose-end. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing for the blog, too, so coming up from next Monday I have these delights for you…
Ad Reviews: Ikea Dollheads, The Famous Grouse, Spitfire and Bombardier, VO5 Express yourself, Rubicon Mango…
I kicked off this blog on the 13th May with pretty modest ambitions. I’m not trying to change the world, just to write a few things a week to entertain myself, you and to publish a few extracts from the upcoming Social Media Guidebook.
I thought I’d see if I could get a daily 10 viewers and 20 views. Instead the blog has far surpassed my hopes, with a regular 40-60 views and a one day peak of 157 views.
So I’m giving myself the day off, and offering you my top posts for your enjoyment:
Since I was a boy, Walkers salt and vinegar flavour have been my favourite crisps. Now I am, alas, no longer a boy and worse still, no longer able to shove all manner of goodies into my face safe in the knowledge I would gain not a single ounce. I have to be discerning about my snack foods. I can’t waste my, erm, waist on unsatisfying sweeties.
The key is don’t eat them often but make them good when I do. a proper treat.
So it’s even more of an imposition when, quite apart from not being as flavoursome as my inner child reminds me they were, the crisps simply aren’t crispy. It’s a failure on their most basic level. I’m going to have to go for a run to get rid of the impact of a packet of uncrispy crisps that I didn’t enjoy.
However, there is light at the end of the green packet lined tunnel: A Deep Ridged light. These fantastic new additions burst with flavour so strong you can barely finish a whole packet. That’s a win/win as far as I can tell.
Although it does mean that after you roll down the packet to save what’s left, they are, like their flat cousins, invariably uncrispy when you come back to them.
