Thanks so much to everyone for the comments and the emails. I feel so much better about things knowing that the blog is actually enjoyed and that the concesus is that it is worth maintaining. That's the first decision made.
I have printed off everything that you have all said. There are so many excellent suggestions. I am now going away for a couple of weeks but when I get back I will have read all your ideas properly and will have come up with a strategy. I'll email and post when I'm back home.
It just goes to show that banging one's head against a brick wall is such a daft thing to do when there are so many wise heads and great people out there who are willing to take time to offer ideas and suggestions!
Many, many thanks
