Why The Bloggers Bash Is Like Bathing In Chocolate

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    If I were in the UK, I’d come to the bash. People here get together too, but not in such a large group that I know of. What a great idea.

    Well that was all very well until the second Bash and I turned up. An over excitable ABB enthusiast! I love the Bash, do come and join us we don’t bite. Well not as long as Geoff and Ritu bring enough cakes!😉💜💜💜💜

  3. If only I lived in England (and was born there, and had a believable accent, and could stomach steak-and-kidney pie…).

      You’re named after one of the poshest trendiest parts of London… you’ll fit right in. And steak and kidney pie is only compulsory on every third Thursday after cringkemass

      • I know my name fits. As to the accent, perhaps not so much.

        Ugh. Is all British food a result of turning inedible parts into bland dishes?

        Fighting talk, kiddo. British food is the best in the world, period. End of. Don’t try and argue or I’ll be there, armed with a Suet crust and blancmange and force feed you boys on neeps and tatties, mushy peas and junket….

      • I’ll see your Suet and raise you a pâte brisée or even a cruller any day. 😀

        Before you get so incensed you wag a finger and scowl, I’m fine eating the less-intestines-derived English foods.

        I suppose the thin skin comes from our noisy (noisome?) neighbours across the Channel suggesting they are better cooks. Tosh! Twaddle! Bunkum! If they could look after and cook meat properly they wouldn’t have to slather it in sauce! But thank you for the pate…

      • I’ll admit that all that slathering has made the French a bit soft…

  4. We enjoyed meeting you Geoff, and we were also fortunate to meet a few more people that I have “met” during my time as a blogger. I must admit to a huge amount of apprehension and social awkwardness on a first meeting. With thoughts of “Why did I say that!”.
    It’s worth making an effort to meet up with fellow bloggers in real life, makes the blogging experience so much more rewarding. I have heard good reports about the bash, hopefully, the stars, moon etc. will align and I get to have a chance to go.

  5. What a great idea! I wish there was something like that in the Pacific Northwest! I did attend a WordCamp in Seattle last year and though I enjoyed it, it seemed mostly focused on the business side of WordPress rather than blogging.
