Merry Christmas. I know it is a time for rest, but for me the Christmas vacation is a time for catching up on work. It is also an occasion when I have more time to think about topics I wish to write about on the blog. The result is that you may see several posts from me over the next few days. One could look upon them as the equivalent of Christmas presents, though I appreciate they may be treated as the blogging version of carpet slippers or aftershave.
This last point does lead to a serious observation. The blog is designed to be interactive. Readers are very good at posting comments and we do our best to respond. However, we write about things that interest us and topics we think will interest you. We may not always get it right and we may not be commenting on issues you think are relevant and on which you would like to have our views. Given that, please feel free to respond to this post with topics you would like us to address in 2009. I cannot guarantee we will be able to cover all of them but it will be interesting to see what concerns you. I will be particularly interested in subjects not already covered in posts and comments.
Thanks especially to all those who have commented during the first nine months of Lords of the Blog. I think we are now getting into our stride. Do keep the comments coming.
