With the internet now an established reality in our every day lives, and with this macro development of the internet in to lives both public and private, not to mention business and entertainment. We have also seen the growth of a new on-line phenomenon, the rise and rise of social media. Social media is undeniably ubiquitous and it dominates our social and private lives in the same way the internet does, indeed arguably it has become a necessary addition to the way we live our lives. But it is also self-evident to the point of being a tautology to say that the internet and social media in having brought many positives to our lives and a big plus in its favour, has also tagged in with it certain negatives, its dark underbelly as it were.

Since I’d been away from blogging for over a year upon my return to blogging I’d noticed some irritating changes to WordPress, changes which I didn’t like. That change was Zemanta no longer being a part of the features, a feature which I’d used a lot in the past. Why Zemanta, simply because I like it as a feature, because it is easy to use and provides a useful tool to the kind of blogging that I do. Anyway if you liked and you miss those Zemanta features here is the download link, you’re welcome :)
Please note I am an employee of Zemanta nor am I a paid up promoter. Zemanta just works for me :)

Well it’s been over a year since my last post on here and if I still have followers all I can say is that I apologise sincerely. The reason for my absence and lack of posting has been quite simply that thing called life, without going in to detail the last has been pretty much not a very good time. And in that time since my last post much has happened and continues to happen, things globally are not looking too good. So it is my intention to get back blogging.
So regards and my apologies for long term enforced absence.
