I am honoured to receive a Conservative Home nomination for the best Conservative newcomer blog of 2006. I'm short-listed alongside a friend of mine who runs the erudite Croydonian blog, so I won't try to influence voting which will be done by internet polling.
Now seems as good a time as any to outline my blogging plans for the coming months. I have always said that the best thing about political blogging has been the network of like-minded friends I have accumulated along the way. Indeed, in a week's time a new collobarative political blog will be launched of which I will be a part. In itself this project may impinge on how many political posts I post here. But to be honest that is an excuse of sorts.
After nine months of fairly prolific blogging, you can expect less frequent posting for a time from me. Call it keeping powder dry/pacing myself or whatever you like, but the big prize is kicking Labour out and I don't expect that fight to heat up for some time yet. That's when I'll be back firing on all cylinders.
