It completely slipped my mind on the actual anniversary a fortnight ago, but anyway… January 7th, 2005 was when my first ever blog-post appeared. A further 5,647 posts later I’m still here. That first month, I covered such weighty topics as the (…)

In an interview with […]

Death of the amateur blogger? A reply to the replies

by Stephen Tall on October 28, 2013

Liberal Conspiracy is dead – and so too’s the amateur blogger (more or less)

by Stephen Tall on October 27, 2013

Sunny Hundal announced on Friday that left-of-centre blog Liberal Conspiracy is coming to an end: I no longer have the time to maintain Liberal Conspiracy as a daily-updated news and opinion blog, so as of today I’m going to stop.

by Stephen Tall on April 20, 2013

A week ago I posed (and answered) the question, After Leveson: which blogs are to be regulated? Answer: no-one yet knows. Well, we do now know. The Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) yesterday announced a ‘refinement’ of the Leveson legislation included within the Crime and Courts Bill. And it confirms that small-blogs are […]
