One of the joyful by-products of blogging is getting to know other bloggers and their wonderful blogs. As is the case in all walks of life, some bloggers are more comfortable at blogging than others - they write well, come up with fresh thoughts, and package it all in a most inclusive and accessible way. I could name several who fit this category, but forgive me if I ‘big’ up just the one at this moment in time.
Gavin Haig (Not Quite Scilly) has been a purveyor of fine blog posts for many a year, although he had become an infrequent blogger of late, with just six posts between January - September of this year. I don’t know what happened to him at the start of October, but whatever it was it has injected him with the manic fervour of a born-again blogger. He has posted 25 times in the past seven weeks, and not just any old filler but really well-crafted prose.
He has recently written a fine series of posts analysing the subject of ‘Dodgy Birders’. This thread has taken on a life of its own, culminating in a surprising and enlightening communication... you can read the denouement by clicking here but I strongly urge you to read Gav’s whole input.
It would be nice to think that the NQS blog is back with us on a regular basis, although if we are just witnessing a brief but wonderful blossoming of wordsmithery then will will just have to be grateful for that, and wait patiently for more. If nothing else, it’s a timely reminder to the rest of us bloggers to up our game...
