I’m Hybernating for the Weekend

Just a quick post to say that I’ll be scarce here over the weekend for a number of reasons. It’s partly that I have more weddings this weekend than you can poke a stick at and partly that I’ve been advised from people that are helping me work through a ‘situation’ to have a few quieter posting days. That will sound very vague but unfortunately it needs to be. Hopefully one day I’ll be able to share the story with you – a story of the underbelly of blogging.

Thanks to the many people who’ve sent kind emails over the past day or two and to those contacted me to alert me to some comments that needed dealing with here. All I’ll say is that they were deleted and that despite their nature they were very helpful comments.

Anyway – enough vagueness. While I’m not here this weekend I’m going to be running some blog tips that some of the bloggers over at b5media have kindly written for me. It’s a series I’m calling ‘the b5media’s 12 days of Christmas’. I’ll explain it in the next post.

Have a good weekend.

    As one of your “minions” I can only say God Bless you, Darren…hope you have a lovely and quiet weekend :D

  4. Jaro says:

    Thanks for all the hard work you do Darren, you help many people out there including myself. Enjoy your weekend!

  5. Andy Merrett says:

    Great to see posts from you today – I was thinking of you yesterday after the stuff that was going on here. Know that you have many friends and powerful people on your side than could ever detract from you.

    All the best from a foggy London. Have a great weekend mate.

  6. Dave says:

    Yes, enjoy the break, ignore the loonies.

    See you again shortly….

    I am one of those recent and grateful audience members. It doesn’t sound like you need the encouragement, but I will give it anyway: top drawer content and one of the key feeds I look forward to digesting when I fire up my newsreader every AM.

    Best to you.

  8. Luv ya mate. Enjoy the “joy” of the weddings!

    I used to run an active Forum around a trading game for four years, and you wouldn’t believe the nutjobs that are out there. Unfortunately the Net attracts the weirdos quite a lot and coupled with an impression of anonymity leads to a lot of stuff going down that wouldn’t happen in real life.
    Most of us regulars know what a splendid chap Darren is. And how he helps us make a bit of dosh on the web. So any help you need mate, just ask.

    But I am sure your support network has already kicked into place.

    Until that day, carry on.
