I started this blog back at the start of 2010 because I was doing a charity LEJOG ride. It made sense because a lot of people were supporting me and I was continually looking for sponsorship. Once that was complete I carried it on as I took on a couple of other charity challenges. Then I carried it on because it was an easy way to log the audaxes that I’d started to do. Since then it’s sort of morphed into a record of what I’ve been doing in amateur time-trialling. I imagine it’s a pretty tedious read and as it only gets 20 to 50 visitors that would seem to be the case – nobody is forced to read it obviously. In the main I’ve been using it as my own personal record given that my memory is so bad. However, I’ve got other software for that as well so I’m not sure that is even a reason now. There’s also an amusing (if quite unkind) thread on one of the Facebook forums about amateur blogs which made me think about why I do this and what is the point of it.
So, I’m three-quarters of the way through my July post – it may be the last one. Or, if my OCD kicks in, I may do it up to the end of the season. But the likelihood is that I will probably let this fade away. There’s possibly 20 to 50 of you who may notice 😂
