So here we go again as I try to re-invent my daily blog. So let's get the football out of the way first. The wonderful Norwich City are top of the Championship and looking a really good bet for promotion to the Premiership. I'm the first to admit that at the beginning of the season I didn't hold out much hope of Norwich's chances and a poor start seemed to bear this out. Then things began to happen and the march up the division took them to the summit. Ane, hopefully that's where they will stay.
Got thoroughly wet on Friday night watching them win 1-0 at home to Swansea - but the dousing was well worth it.
Much of my days at the moment are spent writing, editing and designing my e-magazine Hethersett Herald which, in many ways, seems to have taken over my life.
It started as a 12-page publication over three years ago and is now (hopefully) a major part of village life. It regularly runs to over 80 pages of news, features and photographs. I think that it fills the void left by print media which seems to be going down the drain at a rapid rate.
Circulation figures for the Eastern Daily Press newspaper have dropped to something around the 25,000 mark according to a friend who knows about these things. At its height the EDP sold over 90,000 copies a day. Sadly the days of innovative print journalism are over. Hethersett gets scant coverage in the Wymondham Mercury free newspaper which is now stuffed full of pieces from Diss and Eye etc - places that nobody living in Hethersett have any interest in reading about.
So that's where the Herald comes in. It is full of "Hethersett stuff" and absolutely no paid advertising. I'm sure I will be writing more about this in the days and weeks to come.
Last night thoroughly enjoyed an evening at Hethersett Methodist Church which saw Jan and John Halford talk about their experiences of British waterways, travelling in their narrow boat. The full story will appear in the April edition of Hethersett Herald and the picture with this blog show Jan and John in action. See you tomorrow.
