Speaking early, speaking often

So the title of this post is based on the old gag 'vote early, vote often'. Which is related in a way to the  old adage 'it's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease' - or whatever it was. And for bloggers, if you want to be read, you have to update regularly and often. But it's time-consuming.

I guess you can link to a particular news article and express your views on that, which many bloggers do, but that's never seemed enough to me. On the other hand, it's time-consuming to create a blog post from scratch. I could put my tweets here, and try to add enough context to make a narrative? Maybe. So here's copies of  recent tweets and I'll try to add the context - later?

- I mean, this is serious!

I haven't updated Twitter on my iPad so you can't see the whole tweets. I have updated Twitter on my phone, but have also exceeded my cloud allowance, so they're not updating to each other, so ... uuuurgh - slow process. Will try to fix.

QandA has just come on. As a general principle, I don't watch it. So ... early night
