Welcome to ‘James Proclaims’!

I’ve called this blog ‘James Proclaims’ because my name is James and ‘Proclaims’ rhymes with James. It’s a clever name for a blog when you think about it. Long ago I used to write a column for my university newsletter. I called it ‘James Explains’. But ‘Explains’ doesn’t rhyme with James, so it wasn’t really as good as ‘James Proclaims’. Personally I think that’s real evidence of growth on my part.

The main point of ‘James Proclaims’ is…

…well I don’t really know the point is. I hope one day to take over the world, but I’m not sure how this blog will help me to achieve that. It can’t hurt though…

I think it’s probably wise not to take anything you read here too seriously. Except the taking over the world thing. I’m definitely going to do that.

If you’re a first time visitor, you might need a little help finding your way around, so I’ve created this handy guide to help.

Every Sunday I will be complaining about

Every Tuesday I will write something

Friday’s ‘Story Time’ is my weekly attempt

Every Sunday I will be complaining about (1)

Every Sunday I will be complaining about (2)



You can’t label everything, but I have difficulty

Hope that’s all clear enough!

  1. Hi James, your writing is humourous and fun to read.
    I like your reviews on just about any product, even the dictionary!
    I started off my blog too focusing on reviews because I want to be helpful by providing more information.

  2. James, I am delighted to have you follow my blog as opposed to following me—which by the way would leave you totally lost as I have been told I never leave loaves, much less crumbs to follow. And your desire to not be taken seriously, suggest that your decision to follow my blog was probably no more than a momentary lapse in your normally good judgement. Therefore, I shall resist any temptation to write dramatic material in the near future, as I could use every follower I can get. Thank you very much for following, James. :@)

  3. Hopping over from L on Skill Up Skillet. Congratulations on your nomination!

    Explains to Proclaims definitely shows a world of growth. Your writing is so good it makes someone like me (who believes exercise is Lucifer’s way of giving us a taste of Hell) want to run out and buy a 16kg kettle ball. It is portable after all.

    Proclaim away James!

  4. Found you through Prei, and yup, you seem like you’re funny, idk. You made me laugh, so here you go, you’re getting one step closer to world domination.

  5. Crystal clear and I very much hope that you will take over the world – and laughter will be the one and only killer disease 😀 Off to read what James likes to Complain about

  6. I might like it here or hear I might like it; either way, and there are either or ways clearly I’ll give things a whirl. And you followed me first (which should be as creepy as all hell but is apparently a thing; and I suppose you have to be allowed to acknowledge your own bloguality in a post truth world, or a truth post world) so, now I’m here… you’re it! And thanks but I prefer my personal space

  7. The goals and aims of James Proclaims are obvious to me
    I haven’t read a post yet so just how can that be
    I think I’m going to like your blog but only time will tell
    Can I join in to rule the world and give ol’ Trumpy hell?

    With poetry, I must agree, it’s difficult I think
    Some verses worse, and some are yuk, and others simply stink
    I wish to thank you for the like, invite you to read more
    and now I’ll stop, before I start to soon become a bore!
