Last July I decided to close down my Picture Post Blog and move all my blogging activity over to News From Nowhere. A couple of weeks ago, on a whim, I started posting to it again and I must confess I am rather enjoying myself. But if Alan Burnett's Picture Post blog is going to live on, it is going to do so as a "Lite Blog" (you may not have heard of such things as I have just invented the term). AB's Picture Post will be an airy affair, trivial as a tabloid, digestible as a McVite's biscuit and as insubstantial as candy floss. You can scan it quickly without too much thought and move on to something else without feeling any obligation to comment, follow or interact in any way. It will be a tempting combination of junk-food and comfort food, perfect for the modern Facebook world of quick likes and easy smiles.
As in the past, it will feature my photographs old and new with a minimum of words. And just in case you want something lighter still all you need do is to glance at the latest pictures as they appear in the sidebar on this blog. This is blogging for the twenty-first century, blogging for the busy, active, multi-tasking generation. And just in case you have a strange attraction to over-long, turgid, word-rich exercises in self-centred contemplation, my "Heavy Blog", News From Nowhere, will continue on exactly as before.
