…my, my, Master Gallacher… we seem to have travelled a long way in such a short time…

…I cannot escape the great feeling of ‘belonging’ in the Blogosphere… and it seems to have been with me for almost an eternity now… imagine my astonishment, therefore, to realise my FIRST EVER blog post was in May 2012… less than four years ago… wow, me!… and wow, me again!... for the consumption of any relative newbies on this glorious wonderment of the ‘Internet Authoring For Dummies’... and p’raps for the enlightenment of some of yeez who’ve been around these virtual parts a lot longer that that, here’s what the early blog post content from Master Gallacher looked like … enjoy:

‘ A whole new world… an endangered species pleads for patience…

I am an endangered species, trying to make myself a tad less endangered. Computers and Web-by things and I are fundamentally incompatible. Without a safety net or a plethora of shrinks, I am plunging into the deep end here in cyberspace. By all accounts, Web Jurassics like me should have vanished off the face of the earth eons ago. But, hell, I look in the mirror, and I’m still here. Evolve or be damned they say. Keep up with the times they say. Embrace this world of Twitter, and Facebook, and LinkedIn and Godknowswhatelsesocialnetworks you can find, they say. Well there’s a misnomer if ever there was one . ‘Social’ networks. It’s basically non-instinctive for any human being to press buttons on a piece of electronic hardware and be ‘communicating’ anywhere. Yes, yes, I know we’ve had telephones and televisions and going back a wee bit, tons of radios and such for quite a while now. But I bet they were the cause of untold anguish to our forebears when they first encountered them. Well that’s how I am.  I wanted you to know that, so that when I press whatever button (or is that ‘key’) to send this virgin, maiden missive into the depths of ‘out there’, and all the town and city lights suddenly go out, you’ll know who to blame. I’m a new author. New, not in the physical bodily sense, for that was quite a while ago, but new to the family of fellow suffering scribes who sit staring at computer screens until their heads twirl backwards and their eyeballs fall out from plot and character development fatigue. And right here it’s appropriate to sneak in a confession…I’m loving it. The whole Twittery, Kindle-y, eBooks versus printed books debate-y, blog-gy, beautiful nine yards of it. I’m hooked, and don’t wish to be un-hooked any time soon. Thanks for being out there lovely people. talk to you in a while, I’ve got to go and discuss a little Point of View (POV to the author-y cognoscenti) with the writing committee in my head…’

…see yeez later… LUV YEEZ!

  1. Seumas, I’m still and always in awe reading your blogposts. I’m a tiny bit less jurassic, non-native english speaker; Would so love to be able to write blogposts like you do.
    In admiration, Markus

  2. You could have been describing me today, Seumas but like you, I love what I’m doing. Not quite so much when my brain refuses to ‘get’ something, or even co-operate on a pretty basic level. But then, I have days when I can’t seem to boil a kettle! Good to know I’m in such good company though…

  3. Seumas, your first blog wasn’t that much different from those you write now except you have more of a Scottish accent now which you seem to have picked up in the Middle East somehow. 😀 — Suzanne
