Plain Wrong

I see the Gazunder's Plain Jane has waded into the murky world of Thanet blogging this week, with several of the top blogs given a mench. Yours truly gets a guernsey (of course) as does Bignews Tony and Bertie Biggles.

The old Eastcliff ego, already quite dangerously inflated in some people's eyes, swelled even further at being dubbed 'the local blogging king' and 'often the first with breaking news', and I was even contemplating a trip to Boredstares to plant a couple of 'mwahs' on PJ's cheeks. But then there was an audible POP! as the mincers copped the fact that she'd called me East Kent Richard, and given my web address as www.eastclifframsgate.blogspot.com, which as every blog fan knows is the address of Councillor Green's site. So much for culling a few readers from our local blue top!

Oh well, it's a good job I'm off to Mr Ceaucescu (no relation)'s dacha in South Ossetia for a little break next week. Hopefully the R&R will help soothe my bruised sleb pride. Fear not, though, as I'm leaving the big chair in the capable, clasped hands of my occasional correspondent Sister Assumpta. Now there's a woman who would give Plain Jane a foul-mouthed run for her money!

Strange that they chose a journalist who is obviously out of touch with the internet when they have Thom, who had a blog until it suddenly vanished for no apparent reason.

Blogging King!

Read it and weep Tone!

Eastcliff Richard said...

And Michael - feeling bitter and twisted because she didn't mention your blog, perchance?!?!

Michael Child said...

Richard I’m afraid I haven’t had a chance to get the paper yet and as the article online wasn’t complete I assumed I came later on. What I saw only has links to two active blogs so I sort of thought there would be more. I do however think it a good thing that more journalists are taking an interest in the blogs, I think we who blog a lot are inclined to forget that blogs are very new to most internet users, well anyway there are now some web addresses in the paper and as they have links to all of the other blogs we may see a bit more traffic.

Incidentally I was surprised to see a man of your usually impeccable breeding using more than one exclamation mark!

Eastcliff Richard said...

Touché MC! In fact I shan't be getting any more traffic as they buggered up my web address!

Michael Child said...

O well it has given you a new tag Richard Rex Flatus de Lyon

Eastcliff Richard said...

Richard the Lionfart eh? I like it!

For EC Richard - Sorry, sorry, sorry! Unforgiveable to get a blog address - and your name - wrong! My brain must have been more than usually scrambled that day. I do apologise!
And - for Michaal - nobody chooses me - I choose my topics myself.
Sorry anyway - and I'll put it right this week!

Eastcliff Richard said...

No, no, Jane, please, honestly, it's nothing. Well, nothing that an introduction to your agent wouldn't fix!

janewj said...

Any time - but be warned - she's terrifying! :-)

Sister Assumpta said...

Not as terrifying as me, yer bollox.

Michael Child said...

Janewj well your blog is now discovered to the rest of the Thanet blogging scene, so I was obviously wrong you do understand blogs.

And a mistake rectified, as you obviously intend is no mistake in my book.

janewj said...

"so I was obviously wrong you do understand blogs."

Oh dear - shame I didn't read this before I sent the copy for THIS week's column... :-) :-)
all best anyway!
