“An amateur doing a very bad job.”

“This blogger has no clue what history entails”

What planet does he think he is on?”

“Does he really have any sense of photography?”

That was just a selection from some of the excellent reviews on my blog.

Now its time for some facts:

The blog has a hyper local focus on London. It’s about the city’s history, transport, happenings and other bizarre curiosities, perhaps sometimes even some posts featuring somewhere outside of the capital.

The domain 1LondonBlog is just a name and as there’s no real essence to such, ‘1st’ could be last, somewhere in the middle, at the beginning, or not anywhere at all – or as is usually the case with most human constructs.

A London Blog is a purely descriptive title and locates the website within the vast matrix known as the Internet. A ‘proper’ name is needed otherwise the Internet wouldn’t know where to look!

The blog definitely exists in an extremely small time frame within the entire continuum of the whole universe. Things have been going for billions of years thus the blog is just one tiny piece of garbage, lasting no more than a few nano seconds in that huge vastness of that time.

By the way the whole blog’s just made up. There isnt a single verifiable fact to be seen anywhere on its pages. All the subjects covered are make-believe. I spend hours and days devising more fictional accounts on London’s history just to impress others…

Lastly… I am somehow managing to complete a successful orbit of the Sun each annum. Those who wish I would just disappear from existence continue to hate me because I happen to constantly violate the prescribed conditions necessary for life. Yes there are people who hate the likes of me because ability is powerful – and to them disability is an abhorrence – even in this so called day of equality. (You’d be surprised at how much slight people, even those running other blogs, You Tube, even official organisations such as TfL and the likes throw at me… of course to be a successful blogger one must be able bodied and be able to communicate normally. Well isnt that a fantastic set of parametersthat everyone should abide by – apparently.)

Technical: A London Blog is written on an old Toshiba P200-140 dating from 2007. Outdated technology still on the go!

  4. 1st London Blog
    Greatly appreciate your enlightening work
    Grove Rd power station, recalled well: actually owned by Central Electricity Supply Co, not METESCO. Both used Peachey & Reilly, architects, hence the misunderstanding?

      Thanks for the comments. St Johns Wood had two power stations hence the confusion. Have amended the offending article 🙂
