But, don’t despair. Non Illegitimi Carborundum as they say in Mario’s Pie Shop. I have a plan.
Let me wind back a touch. Everyone in the Blogosphere will know by now how a self proclaimed Gang of Four – Ali ‘bog diver’ Isaac, Hugh ‘The Welsh’ Roberts, The Geoffle and their Supreme Commander de Blog, Sacha ‘Eyebrows’ Black – nearly subverted everything we spiritually pure bloggers hold dear: anonymity, absence of human contact, a safe space to write what we like without
Yes, THEY HELD A MEETING. Last August. A bleak day. Well, quiet sunny actually but still…
