Three years ago, when I started 'Liberal Bureaucracy', I thought that it might be a nice opportunity for my family to keep up with my progress. I was in the midst of divorce proceedings, although not much was happening there, and was packing for another epic journey (Argentina, Colombia and Ecuador).
Much has changed since then, of course. I am married (to the lovely Ros), I've moved house, I've exchanged Quito for Kirkwall and changed office. The blog, perhaps, is one of the few constants, an ever present reminder that life goes on.
Blogging has become more erratic, in accordance with my lifestyle, although I've probably become less tolerant of failure, and more willing to express myself freely. It's been fun though, and who knows what the next year has in store?
