Leila pointed out that part of one of Rob's posts got picked up and included in the letters' blogs page of the Guardian. Hello, person from the Guardian! Thanks for that!
If you've come here from the Guardian letters page, to avoid you having to scroll through posts about My Friends the Birds, Demands for Votes and suchlike, here is the post.
The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.
Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
