So last year!

In the episode of Ugly Betty that was broadcast on Sunday, on ITV, Mark said to Betty, after learning she was starting a blog, ‘Oh, welcome to six years ago... [PAUSE] That was uncalled for: welcome to two years ago.’ It got me thinking.

I haven’t posted for several months, but I always planned to resume writing at some point. However, blogging does seem rather passé, especially blogging about one’s misfortune. Although I have always tried to sound ‘angry’ rather than ‘crushed’ when relating unpleasant events, some of my posts must have sounded like annoying moans. I don’t want to read that kind of thing any longer – I find it tiresome and self-indulgent – and I’m pretty sure a lot of people don’t either. The only blogs that have lasted and are worth spending time on are those that provide useful information – or are amazingly beautiful to look at.

The number of visitors to Frag Name of the Day is increasing steadily and I will carry on posting there. As for Les Planches d’Outre-Manche, I don’t know yet...

Anyway, I would like to thank everyone who came here in the past few years. Hope you found Slap of the Day entertaining. Au revoir !


  1. Be well Bela J and keep us updated if you do write elsewhere

  2. Oh, sorry to see you go! But hey, if it's so last year, it's time to move on :-)

  3. Thanks, Elan. You know where to find me.

    Thanks, mm. :-)

    I thought it was, Robin. I was beginning to repeat myself. As you know, I'm still around. There's no chance of your website ever becoming obsolete.
