We promise we will try to make sure it won’t go to our heads.
But before our first full day of publishing notes, thoughts and comments on Inside Croydon, a fellow hyperlocal blogger, Jason Cobb (or @Jason_Cobb, as we have come to know him), posted this message about us on Twitter:
Jason_Cobb OK, so 3rd linkage of the day – but has there been a better start to a #hyperlocal blog? More of the same, please http://bit.ly/dbZvZe
Now Jason, as our regular reader will know, is an old hand at these things, having been doing his Onionbagblog, based in and around SW8, and tackling the vagaries of local council politics in Lambeth since 2003.
So we very much appreciate his kind words, and we’ll probably be calling upon his help and advice on a regular basis, too.
Anyway, the point of this post, beyond a bit of a self-congratulatory w*nk, is to inform you all that you can now follow Inside Croydon’s regular updates, both via an RSS feed on the site (down there towards the bottom of your browser screen somewhere) and on Twitter, where you can find us at the imaginatively named @InsideCroydon.
