It has been coming for more than a year now. The end of 'Mud in the Blood' began more than eighteen months ago when the reasons for starting the blog became irrelevant. I was, at the time, working as a freelance copywriter and publisher, it was something that I enjoyed and was proving to be quite lucrative. However, something was missing. I wrote several times on the blog that I missed the simpler days when I just got up in the morning and went to work, grabbing keys, cigarettes and lighter, my wallet. In those days work meant going out and earning some money whether it be full- time, part-time, employed or self employed, on the books or otherwise. I didn't care, I had the freedom to live my live as I chose and had to suffer the consequences or reap the benefits. I wanted that life again, so I went and took it back.
That made the the blog, in the main, irrelevant and pointless, it no longer reflected the life I was living. So, I deleted all the posts with a view to a fresh start. That didn't happen! I had changed, I had become what, in all honesty, I had always been.
A peasant, a redneck, a yokel, white trash, day rate labourer whatever you want to call it. I have to say it is refreshing to lose your pretencions. So it is time for 'Mud in the Blood' to end.
I will be back blogging with a new blog but the same screen name, I am not going to link to it as it is not actually live now, and this blog will be deleted soon. I must thank all the past readers of this blog, for the comments, links, emails and support and to all the other bloggers out there who provide so much inspiration and information. See you on the new blog.
