Funky Friday – One Year Souled

I’m nipping off next week, (back to sunny Stow – again) but while I’m away – on August 15th – this piece of ol’ puffery completes it’s first year of orbit in the blogosphere (I’m discounting, but not deleting the first three directionless posts) – so to celebrate breaking the one year barrier, I’ve made a pick ‘n’ mix buffet of tasty treats and groovy goodies gathered from all around my hat.. err, blogroll.

So, a tip of the titfter and a ‘thank you for the music’ is due to all those on the ‘1YS’ tracklist for the tip top tunes, and to anyone who’s ever contributed or commented on this ol’ blog, as well as a ton of cyberchums for chit chat, chippings in, inspiration and ideas like …

Pre blogging mates

Heroes and hitmakers who’ve appeared here.

And finally a special mention for all those silent peepers, prowlers and binge bloggers that arrive via and spend around 12 hours necking down every page and piece without a whisper.

So my funky friends tuck in, fill your boots, raise a glass, shake a leg and here’s to another fab year .

    Awww thanks for your kind comments everyone – S’enough to make an old blogger blush.

    The track that got me blogging (when it span in via ‘random play’) was Soft Cell ‘A Man Could Get Lost’ – how appropriate is that? Since I seem to have become completely lost and swallowed by the blog hole of cyberspace (isn’t that a Human League tune?)

  11. Congratulations, and thanks for the mix — that will be the soundtrack to me sweating it up on the treadmill today.
