Where did everybody go?

I know it’s the silly season – Dog Days even – but so many cherished charioteers seem to have evaporated into cyberspace. OZ, Bravo and Nym to name but a few former stalwarts.

If you have personal contact with them, please give them a bell or a rocket – whichever appeals…….

    It would seem as this blogging lark has a died a bit of a death, how long has it been? 5/6 years?

  2. Bit of a shame really.
    It appears that most do this unless you have a clear leader that blogs regularly or the site is dedicated to a specific subject.

    Just to let you know I’m leaving this evening from Vancouver for Wales/England and will be rather spotty in attendance until September! Some of the places I’m going to only just have electricity! Wots wifi???

  3. Have a safe and happy one, Christina.

    Yes, I remember now that OZ is on leave.

    Soutie, g’morgen. Yes, I concur. 😦

    It looks as if many of us were fascinated by the possibilities offered by blog-sites and got enormous pleasure from the sheer diversity of opinions and the cut-and-thrust of written debate. But we’re a fickle lot, aren’t we? Today’s hobby is tomorrow’s sad obsession.

  4. I only came here for the Battleships but to everyone’s chagrin I’ve stuck around. What is needed is a Charioteers wiki page or App. Failing that, the regulars will just have to write about more interesting subjects to attract new viewers/authors. With that in mind I have a few tractor blogs in the pipeline.

  5. OK, JW, let’s play battleships, if we must. By coincidence I’m doing a piece on my excellent ride-on machine. That’ll draw the crowds.

    I’m sorry but my Doctor has warned me against indulging in the seat-edge, butt-clenching, roller-coaster ride of sheer thrill and excitement that is ‘Battleships’,

    Janus, good evening. It’s a worry but it’s also interesting that, despite the lack of posts and comments, the ‘hits’ are climbing on upwards and onwards at an undiminished rate. Excelsior!

    So, it would seem that there are still plenty of people out there who are happy to visit Boadicea’s site but don’t feel the need to comment. Their choice and their right, of course. A shame, in my opinion. There are worse places to be,

  7. After more than five years or so, Janus, I must admit that this blogging lark, enjoyable though it is, does take up rather a lot of time.

    Nym has faded out for just this reason. She has taken on some more paid employment and has suspended her own WordPress site for now.

    I’m rather tied up with Other Things but hope to have more time in the Autumn, after THE Wedding (daughter No.1) which is at the end of September. There are just many distractions at the moment, but thank you and the others for continuing to post. I am trying to keep up, but I need things to quieten down before I can give cyber-space my full attention.

  8. I’ve also grown busier. Over the past few months I’ve been spending time with a few old friends and acquaintances in California, people who after next month I will rarely — if ever — see again. I’m also preparing for two international moves next year and the completion of my master’s programme over the next two terms. I am starting to prepare for a permanent career as well.

  9. This summer we are not driving across Europe to Bratislava, so I am unable to contribute any photographic accounts of places visited. Sitting quietly at home, taking the pills at the appointed times, means that I am a consumer rather than a contributor to the Chariot just now. I can entertain myself wondering how Wales is coping with Christina or how John Mackie is coping with the Open almost on his doorstep and the second Test happening at the same time. Perhaps our visit to the Pompeï and Herculaneum exhibition at the British Museum next week will provide some material.

  10. Dahlinks!
    At least I bloody got here, just! 23 hours solid travelling, far too much for this old fart!
    More later.

  11. Look out West Britain and Birmingham! CO is about. 🙂

    Sheona, sorry to hear you’re chair-bound at home (unless that’s your preference, of course) but the summer certainly offers some good teleprogs sportswise.

  12. Not totally chair-bound, but under instructions to “potter” and not move heavy furniture, which is not something I would ever do. I can visit garden centres and sniff the few fragrant roses there are. Why breed roses with no scent?

    Well worth a visit, although a bit crowded. We have been recently. Super Turkish restaurant 100 yards down the road from the Museum as well.

    There are some good lighting effects, Hint, Hint…….

  15. Thanks for the tip, FEEG, but we have a dinner engagement elsewhere in London so won’t be looking for a hearty lunch.
