100 blogs in 100 days, day 27: Gone Away

Day 27 of 100 blogs in 100 days takes us to an Englishman living in a strange land…the United States, and in a state probably best known to the world due to one of my favorite Roger and Hammerstein musicals (well favorite after South Pacific), from Clive Allen.

Blog: Gone Away
About: I may live in Oklahoma now but I’m English. You don’t really expect me to announce that Gone Away is the best blog on the net, do you? Thousands claim that and I’m trained from birth not to bang my own drum. Let’s just say that, judging from the number and quality of comments, plenty of people seem to like what I do…

So drop on by where the corn is as high as an elephants eye at Gone Away and let Clive know what you think without signing the words “Oklahoma..OK!”

  • I make comments on Gone Away almost every day because Clive gives you something to get your teeth into. A writer of merit and talent ~ awaiting a shrewd publisher for his book ~ he spreads his wisdom and wry humour via his blog. It’s a bit like Laphroaig whisky though, you have to get used to it … then you’re hooked.

  • I, too, am a regular on Gone’s blog, although I don’t always comment. Mostly because sometimes things are beyond me…

    Be forewarned, once you visit, you’ll forever return :)

  • Regular reader here too, and I can only nod frantically and agree at this choice of a blog for the 100 blogs a day project. “Gone Away” presents really interesting and thought-provoking posts, and even if I don’t comment on all of them, they’re never short of a good discussion to read :)
