Happy Birthday Daily (Maybe)

Four years of blogging with an average of over four hundred posts a year it was on this very day that I started blogging. My aim was to blog for one month, but I wasn't so sure I'd be able to keep it up - hence the maybe in the title.

I've changed a fair bit as a blogger since I started out. I learned not to care about site stats and, although it probably doesn't look like it, I'm more relaxed if I haven't posted for a couple of days. I just let it come. I've also come to realise that this blog doesn't have to be 'for' anything - it's just something I do.

Now, I was going to book St Paul's Cathedral for the celebration party, but it turns out they don't allow pyrotechnics or foam machines so I had to scratch that idea. So Plan B is that over the next few days I'll lay on what passes for a treat, at this blog anyway.

That means I'll be hosting some guest posts from a hand picked elite of people I know, I'll also be going back into the archives and recovering some long forgotten gems and giving them a dust off. Add to this a couple of interviews and the regular mix of World Cup round up and huffing and puffing about the Tory Coalition and we're talking about a real blogging blitz.

Hope you don't find it too much to take. I've also started work on a mini-series of posts on the direction of the Green Party in very changed circumstances, I might leave that until the celebrations are over though, as they're reasonably serious.
