The BristolBlogger site has been pulled by Wordpress without explanation
You can post and ask Wordpress's man for "user engagement and retention" about it here: http://blog.numenity.org/
But they're not saying much. Apparently Mr Kim "channels his love for the Internet and the world into the growth of the hardest-working community in blogging". Ho hum.
In the meantime, the last story posted on the Blogger's site was this:
Election 2010: Tory wonderweb joy!
January 4, 2010 · 20 Comments
Just been reading Eugene Byrne’s political predictions for 2010 in Venue. A stonking good read mainly because the The Bristol Blogger is in it. Although another highlight is Helen Holland cracking a decentish joke while KRS will be on the naughty step for the forseeable.
Most of the article is general election predictions and observations. Dawn’s gonna hold Bristol South; Paul Smith might win Bristol West (ha, ha, ha!); Jacob Rees-Mogg is tosser etc. etc …
Unfortunately Eugene didn’t mention Bristol East where the – so far – invisible Tory candidate, the fragrant Ms Adeela Shafi of leafy Westbury-on-Trym in, er, Bristol West, has reinvented herself over Christmas as one of the country’s “most web-savvy politicians”!
And ‘Web wonder Shafi‘ – as we now have to call her – will have an anonymous pro-Tory internet campaign – featuring “cutting edge Tory bloggers” – kicking off in the Bristol East constituency today with the Twitter-friendly title #kerryout.
Despite the rather obvious fact – regardless of how many “cutting edge” Tory public schoolboy bloggers form a circle jerk – that Bristol’s political blogosphere doesn’t have the reach to turn over a 7,200 Labour majority in Bristol East – and lazy-arsed Tory horse Shafi will have to get off her backside and knock on doors to make an impact – this soppy little campaign has obviously rattled Kerry who is already issuing daft legal threats!
Now we find Channel 4 News are taking an interest …
Pull up a chair. The election’s underway folks and I’m off to design my ‘Election 2010′ logo …
