Hi to all my blog friends. Season’s Greetings !
This time last year there were 863 subscribers; this week there are 2056 subscribers. That’s a wonderful growth of over 238% over the year and I’d like to thank you all for reading and sharing the blog around. Keep it up and let’s keep growing.
There’s been 21 blogs this year including this one and of course my 486 page book 2 of my Fantasy trilogy story – Agents of Chaos. You’ve all helped to make this a special year. You can see my blogs shown in the various areas on my Des Pensable Graphiti web site.
A couple of hundred of you accepted the offer to the free copy of the ebook. I hope you enjoyed it. Expect book 3 mid next year. With luck you might also see the trilogy available by a major book retailer next year as a boxed set. I will also be doing a lot more book promotion next year.
I’ve also continued with the performance poetry in Sydney venues with several new poems and thank those of you who have come along to one of the poetry sessions and said a few kind words.
The blogs this year reflected the feeling of many people that the two most serious threats to Australia and many other countries was the TPP and of course Global Warming which we’ve all seen get worse while action to stop it has at best been mediocre.
We’ve been plagued with bad sociopathic politicians this year in Australia, our democracy has become more consolidated as a corporate oligarch, with more authoritarian laws and more privatization. Even worse, what has happened in the UK and USA is simply frightening.
Next year my partner Joanne and I will be doing more travelling, more activism and you can expect more stories about how people are reacting to Global warming, about their fears and hopes for their families. There will be more stories about our global warming denier politicians and the mining lobby.
All of my stories are researched and come with links to current literature so that you can follow my arguments and read what others think about the same issues. NONE of my stories have been sponsored in any way by commercial, financial, political or government interests.
Share the articles with others and suggest they join the blog so they too can join the discussion. Join me on Facebook.
Above all send comments on the articles so that I can gauge your reaction to the stories. I’ve had many people tell they liked various stories when they talked to me personally but too few respond in writing so others can benefit from their thoughts.
Thanks to all of you out there in blog land. I hope you’ve enjoyed my stories and you can expect even more next year.
Season’s greetings- have a nice Christmas season and an exciting new year. Above all become more active in fighting for our future.
