Dear the Plashing Vole
Firstly, I love your blog. It amuses me, and brings my attention to various leftwing things I did not previously know about. Sometimes it even provides genuine insight. So thank you.
Secondly, out of interest, with what proportion of your readership are you on first-name terms? I always imagined your blog to be read by people like me who haven't met you in real life..

Hi Tim. If you're amused and occasionally enlightened, then I'm getting it right.

I think that I'm personal friends or acquaintances with about half of my readers - my friends and colleagues check in quite frequently, family less often. I've acquired some readers fairly randomly (in Utah, Wellington and Ontario), others through publicity: appearing in the Guardian Higher Ed and the Times Higher Ed got me a lot more readers, some of whom have stuck around. Most of these are academics whom I might come across in the course of work some day, but mostly not.

Anyway, welcome aboard.

Are you the Tim Deamer from the Youth Parliament?

Tim Deamer said...

Gosh, yes. As far as I know there aren't any others..
But I'm no longer involved with Youth Parliament as my term came to an end and I didn't stand again.
How did you know?
