Star of wander...

I've drifted away from my blog the last few months; wandering off in other directions to see what else is possible in terms of having a voice and sharing thoughts across the blogosphere. Looking back I really regret not continuing this blog at the same time, because I feel like I've abandoned it – left Comfort Blanket lying in a muddy puddle by the side of the bloggy highway. And I also feel I've let you down – my loyal followers – by not commenting so much on your wonderful blogs, where you have continued to inform, entertain and generally shine, week in and week out.
The thing is, I decided several months ago that I wanted to start blogging as myself, rather than behind the name Comfort Blanket. And once I made that decision I put my energies into trying to get that up and running, attaching it to my website, which I'd get re-designed. Unfortunately, in an effort to save pennies, I'm getting it done by a friend of a friend who has to work on it in his spare time. So it's taking a while. But, finger's crossed, it will be ready by January. And once it is, I'll post the link on here so you can find me – if you still want to that is!
As we hurtle towards Christmas, I just wanted to step off the merry-go-round for a moment and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy, Joyful New Year. And thank you for taking the time to read, and comment, on anything I've posted here the last 12 months. Here's to 2012!


  1. I shall be among the first to join the migration, CB. Yes, here's to 2012 and the relaunch. Your voice adds a great deal. It's hard work, blogging regularly. But blogging is definitely a Higher Discourse - and a lot more satisfying than Facebook. Happy Christmas! Happy New Year!

  2. Thank you Charles! Yes, blogging regularly is hard work – as you would certainly know. But I agree, it is worthwhile, satisfying and extremely useful. Not three words that spring to mind with Facebook; those three words are probably 'Look At Me!'
    Anyway, all the best to you and yours this festive season. And thank YOU for such a brilliant blog. Your efforts are never unappreciated. x

  3. Dear CB (as we shall call you for now..) thanks for the update, pleased to know you're still hanging on to the blogging business. My own blog has been a bit quiet of late. These things come and go depending on tides, phases of the moon and general life rhythms!
    Anyway, till next time, Merry Christmas and HNY to you and yours.
    Gloria in excelsis (at this time of year only) x

  4. Thank you, Gloria, for your words and wishes. Beautifully put, as always... And I wish you a smashing, sparkly Christmas, and a happy New Year. With bells on. x

  5. Happy New Year CB! It's great to hear your exciting plans for 2012 and I will also be following you wherever you go. S x

  6. Thanks Lady Ric of Rac. Hoping to be up and running before the end of January. Happy New Year to you too! x
