It is very simple and it is this.
Please stop reading my blog.
If you read it because you know me personally, and you feel obliged to, then stop*.
If you read it because I once commented on your blog and you feel some sort of reciprocal duty, then stop*.
If you read it because there was one post ages ago that you enjoyed, but since then it’s really not spoken to you, then stop*.
If you read it because you feel somehow that you ought to, then stop*.
If you read it for any reason other than enjoyment, then please stop*.
Because I am not writing this blog to become rich, and I am not writing this blog to become famous, and I do not care if it is read by one person or many.
I am writing this blog because I want to, and if my parkrun reviews inform you or my struggles with motivation reassure you, or my attempt at ultra training amuses you, then that’s great. But life is short, and time is precious, and there is very little that you will read on here that will transform your life. So go, with my good wishes, and discover a blog that you can’t wait to read*. Like Cake of Good Hope. Or Something about Rowing. Or College at Thirty. Or Not Much of a Runner. Or Bad Science.
*Unless you are Abradysis. In which case, I’m sorry, but tough. Reading my blog is a requirement. And there will be a quiz.
