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…

Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m super excited today because I’ve been nominated for ‘The Adequate Blogger Award’ by James over at James Proclaims. I just want to take a moment to thank James for nominating me. He has a super awesome blog which has poetry and haiku and limericks and poems and also some really brilliant…

10 Unbelievable Epic Fails Caught On Camera

Hello, I’m James and this is my blog, ‘James Proclaims’. Recently I started writing posts with ‘click-bait’ titles. It was sort of an experiment to see if it got more people to visit my blog, but also a bit of fun that I thought that people who already visited my blog would find amusing. Insofar…

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…

Most Melancholic Monday

Today is Blue Monday and therefore officially the most depressing day of the year. This is based on actual scientific fact and not a slap in the face to those people who are actively campaigning to raise the profile and reduce the stigma of mental health. I actually wasn’t feeling that bad when I woke…

Don’t Call It A Comeback

It is the 18th November, which quite possibly means that Christmas is nearly upon us. It also means that I haven’t troubled the blogosphere for a good four months. At least I imagine it’s been a good four months if you really don’t like my writing. But then I would hypothesise that you wouldn’t be…

It’s All Kicking Off

It’s been a while since I last blogged. Possibly that is due to a certain amount of blogging fatigue accrued during the ‘200 posts in 200 days’ marathon of blogging that preceded this latest hiatus. Or possibly I had nothing to say. Then again, having nothing to say has never been a particular barrier before.…

Multiple Milestones

This post, the one you’re currently reading (if indeed you are reading this) is the 524th post to appear on James Proclaims. Which is not hugely significant in and of itself, but back on October 30th 2017, I had only written a measly 324 posts. On October 31st, I wrote a post about Halloween. Little…

A Triennium Of Proclamations

Today is my third blogiversary. That’s right, I’ve been doing this blogging malarkey for three whole years now. Which seems like a respectable amount of time to have maintained a blog. It’s probably worthy of some kind of recognition. I should at least get a certificate. Maybe even a laminated certificate. I’d like to say…

Thawed For The Day

I was struggling to think of what to write today, and almost didn’t bother posting. But I’m on such a hot blogging streak at the moment (this being my 133rd post in 133 consecutive days) that I was reluctant to not write anything. I feel the run is likely to come to an end soon,…

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…
