Thanks to Amy Hopkinson for drawing my attention yesterday to the G2 section of the Guardian. Stephen Moss has written about this blog. I’m not sure that the author quite knows what he is letting himself in for when he writes: ‘Lord Norton has grasped the key rule of successful blogging: write about yourself.’
I don’t win many awards, but some years ago, a local rag in Hull, the Hull Free Press (which no longer exists), kindly awarded me the title of ‘Self Publicist of the Year’. As I understood to be the practice on such occasions, I immediately issued a statement thanking all those who had made it possible.
