I’ve been thinking about something this past week since hitting my brief moment of internet stardom. This is only of relevance to my really long term readers so if this isn’t you, stop reading now.
This is a secret that I’m only letting long term readers in on. If you’re a recent reader you won’t even be affected by this secret so don’t worry about it. “Recent” would be if you only started reading in the last week but this is probably relevant if you’ve been reading for about three months or less. Stop reading now if this is you. Go read another post.
I mean it. Don’t make me fuck you up. You will only have to have read a couple of posts to know I’ll do it. So for your own sake, only keep reading if you’re a long term reader.
OK, so here’s the secret: I’m going to start recycling posts. I’ll still be writing new material (most of the time, in fact) but there is so much good stuff that I’ve written over the past 15 months that only a tiny number of people have seen, it seems a waste to let it rot. Now that my genius has been more widely appreciated, I can share some of these hidden gems.
So maybe a couple of times a week I will be republishing something that might seem vaguely familiar. I imagine in most cases there will be at least some re-writing involved so it won’t simply be carbon copies of previous material. Maybe you even have a favourite of your own from the past that you think deserves a wider audience. If that’s the case, let me know. In any case, as time goes by you may get a feeling of deja-vu when reading this blog that isn’t totally unfounded.
Or you might be crazy. It’s so hard to be sure sometimes.
