Herrock Hill

There’s always been a lag between me doing a walk, and then getting the write up for it published. I have to write the text, type it all up, edit it and make it read nicely. Then I have to sort out all the photographs, and then choose the ones I want to use. It can take ages. But it’s generally been possible to sort out in a three months. Maybe six.

Well, that was the case. Because it’s almost a year since I did the first section of the Offa’s Dyke Path, and am only now getting to the end of publishing the pieces about it. Hmm. Yeah, that’s quite a delay. I don’t quite know how it got that bad. Well, okay, I do. Life got in the way. Also I wrote quite a lot for the Offa’s Dyke Path. I try to make pieces around 1,500 words if I can, and I wrote far more than that. So I ended up splitting several days into two. And as I only tend to publish once a week, that increases the backlog even more.

In fact, such is my backlog now that I’ve got a weekly post lined up (but not 100% complete) that will take me all the way to the end of October. And that’s just catching up with what I walked in 2023.

Maybe I could reduce the backlog a little by not including photos like this as one offs. But whilst there may have been clouds in the sky, but the views put a spring in the step. And I wanted to share it with you.

But basically it means don’t expect to read much about 2024 until 2025…

Have your say
