About this blog
I started this blog in 2011 to report back on shows I have attended, mainly theatre but also some concerts and sporting events.
It has also become a vehicle for some film, television (current and archive), book reviews, and some more personal pieces.
On a professional level I worked for twenty-five years as a librarian, and also am a published writer – academic articles, poetry, popular culture – and spent five years editing a journal for a major publisher. If you would like to know more, see my LinkedIn profile.
As of 2019 writing and editing has become my main job, and I am very keen to engage with productions, outlets, and arts organisations to expand my coverage and my reviews.

I decided to join in the madness that is daily blog posting for NaBloPoMo and have gained over 100 followers on my blog because of it (hello there) but not a great deal of interaction. And I do like interaction, so …
In December I will go back to blogging fairly regularly, probably once a week. I don’t want to use up all my topics at once. I have enjoyed the discipline of getting something out there day after day and will probably participate again next year – very likely with my professional blog, more work-related, which you can look through, should you wish to, at http://eresourceful.wordpress.com.
I’ve dropped out of my film forums over the past few months and haven’t really missed the Doctor Who-related banter which seems to have taken them over. I don’t mind Dr Who but I am not a ‘fan’ and even on archive TV forums, all people ever seem to talk about is this one series and it gets B O R I N G.
So along with blogging daily here, playing Criminal Case and Candy Crush on Facebook, and adding stuff to Letterboxd, I’ve cut my internet time-wasting right down, although November has also marked the time when I have become a regular
