I’ve Finally Achieved My Dream

Last week I disappeared from the blogosphere for a few days. You may not have noticed. Why would you? I’m not a blogger of any particular consequence. Besides, even though I wasn’t really around, my writing still was, as I made use of the rather helpful ‘scheduling’ feature on WordPress and my posts appeared everyday,…

You’ll Never Get More Readers Without Doing This

Hello, I’m James and this is my blog, ‘James Proclaims’. Every Wednesday, for the last few months, I have been writing disingenuous posts with click-bait titles. While my motivation has always been fairly tongue-in-cheek, I did start doing this partly to see if it made any difference to my overall stats. I don’t massively care…

Exclusive! An Interview With James Proclaims

For the last five years, little has been known about the mysterious figure behind the multi-award nominated blog, ‘James Proclaims’. Apart from the blog posts of course. But what can you really tell about a person from a blog post? Well, possibly quite a lot. Or maybe nothing at all. Have the utterings of the…

All Blog And No Blog Makes Blog A Blog Blog

Happy September everyone! It’s not actually September as I write this, but I am planning on posting this on the first day of September. Because, without wishing to ruin the magic for anyone, sometimes I write my posts ahead of time. Anyway, although I’m writing this on the 29th August 2020, it will be September…

James Explains How To Blog

Hello bloggers and bots, it’s James here, off of the multi-award nominated blog, ‘James Proclaims’. I’ve been at this blogging malarkey for over five years now (if we ignore all the blogs I started and then abandoned in the preceding years. Of which there were a few) so I’m something of an expert. Indeed after…

James Explains How To Comment

Hello fellow bloggers, bots and the unlikely but still plausible person who reads this and is neither a blogger nor a bot. Today I’d like to talk about commenting on blogs. Because I’ve noticed that some people are prone to do so on this blog and, to put it bluntly, not everyone is getting it…

James Blogs About His Own Blog

Though unintentionally, I appear to have started the previous two months with a kind of ‘blog update’. I suppose it’s an inevitable consequence of posting something everyday that occasionally my muse will lead me to ponder my own blog and indeed the concept of blogging as a whole. And frankly I’m not alone in this. …

A Bad Poem About A Different Bad Poem

Once I wrote a poem and it wasn’t very good I put it on this blog though I wasn’t sure I should It was quite well-received even though it was so bad It got more ‘likes’ than better posts and this made me sad I wondered if it was worth putting much effort in If …

Que Sera Sera

Having been largely dormant for much of 2019, my blog has enjoyed something of a resurgence of late. This may be a natural consequence of all that is going on in the world. Then again, although it is abundantly clear, even to an introvert like me, that social norms appear to have changed for most…

Fin de Saucisson

We’re now in the last week of February 2020 and I have clearly missed my goal of making sure I post something on this blog every Monday. By failing to write anything at all this month. Until today. Then again, the ‘posting every Monday pledge’ was when I was still subject to EU regulations, whereas…

Ninety-One

Do bloggers blog about the very act of blogging when they can’t think what else to blog about? Perhaps so. I know I’ve been guilty of that before. And perhaps I’m guilty of that today. I’ve got loads of things I want to blog about though, so this post is not entirely about a lack…

A Taxonomy of Chocolate Bars

If you’ve clicked on this expecting a well-thought out classification of all the different chocolate bars available in the UK then you’ll be sadly disappointed. Also, what is wrong with you? Seriously, who needs to know about chocolate bars to that extent? I mean I am reasonably well-versed in chocolate. I’m certainly no expert, but…

Less Is More. More Or Less.

Sometimes, when I can’t think of anything to write about, I write about the fact that I can’t think of anything to write about. It’s a little self-contradictory but it solves a problem. Equally, when I don’t really have time to write anything, I occasionally write about the fact that I haven’t got time to…

Introducing ‘Artist’s Corner’

Last week I was lamenting the fact that I actively got worse at blogging in 2016 when compared to 2015. And although I rather churlishly claimed in that post that I was going to endeavour to be even worse in 2017, in actual fact I’d like to be a bit better. Or, you know, more…
