This blog is dated, in fact it dates from exactly the time when blogging hit the headlines. Mostly because of the doocing (eg getting sacked for writing something on a blog) of Petite Anglaise now known as Catherine Sanderson.
Following on from that and her and other's (the Girl with a one track mind, Belle Du Jour) high profile media careers many people took up blogging with the hope of being discovered by the mainstream media. In fact I suspected most people who were bloggers in 2006 were secretly hoping their boss would sack them, which is why I decided to adopt the persona of someone who wanted to launch his media career through via a doocing would be slightly funny. Given that I was a priest and it's quite difficult to sack priest's who aren't 'naughty'.
I suppose the persona I wanted to adopt was that of a bored cynical person who does no work! Actually although I have lost count of the amount of blogs I start with 'Having done no work today' that's actually a lie.
I love my job, and I wouldn't give it up, even if there was media whoring at the end of it.
Sure I'd be tempted....but not for very long.
No I am where God has put me and God is good, and I thank him for that! Now more than ever I am happy to be here.
