When I started the Poor Mouth last year I didn't really know how long I would last before I got tired and gave up - It seems I've been going on a bit longer than I expected.
But there probably would not have been a blog were it not for Redwine who encouraged me to start blogging in the first place. I am grateful to Elasticwaistbandlady for her support, injections of humour and her frequent comments, Steve Bates , Roland Dodds at But I am a Liberal who was the second blogger to link to the Poor Mouth.
I might have given up after a couple of months but for the visitors and links that came through Bloggers4Labour, Renegade Eye and Sonia-Belle (the last two prove that opposites attract).
Thanks to Siv, Bryan, Beakerin, Tyger , Snowflake, Gert of MadMusingsofMe, who knows what I look like and where I work! Peteris who is a highly talented guy and geat to chat with, Siani , who I've known almost as long as I've had internet access, The Fotis (one of whom knows what I look like and where I live), Roger whose nature photgraphs are wonderful (and make me green with envy at his talent!).
Sorry if I have missed anyone out. I am grateful to everyone who has linked to the Poor Mouth and to everyone who has left (nice) comments over the last year.
