I hadn't realised how important Ivan's Blog has become in my life. When I started, it was the result of a challenge in a workshop on accountability when I rashly, I thought at the time, started it, with a colleague being entrusted with ensuring that I compiled with a promise to publish a blog every week.
It took three weeks or so for the group to collapsed (don't they all eventually?) but sheer bloody mindedness took over and I surprised myself by keeping going.
That was just over 10 years ago and the result has been in excess of 550 posts almost every Sunday (3 exceptions) a total in excess of 400,000 words and good del of hard thinking to make sure that I am not becoming too repetitive.
Sadly age is now taking over and apart from not wanting to stop, there is now a noticeable slow down in the generation of good ideas. Accordingly I have decided to call it a day.
Thank you to everyone who has been in touch, who has taken part in comments and discussions and has contributed to keeping the blog constantly alive.
While it won't be posted on a regular basis now don't be surprised to find Ivan's Blog popping up occasionally simply because I have had an idea that perhaps you may enjoy.
Bless you all.
