Like nearly everyone else on WordPress, I would like to write a book. Sorry. That’s just a lie. I’ll start again.

Like nearly everyone else on WordPress, I would like to have written a book. In July last year, I decided to start writing a blog, called 23thorns.com, in order to force myself to start writing and keep writing.

Like nearly everyone else on WordPress, I didn’t finish the book. I hardly even started it. But I did blog. A lot. About anything that came to mind.

It turned out that what came to mind, more often than not, was wildlife. The wildlife of South Africa’s Lowveld. 23thorns.com has become a bit of a juggernaut, with a little bit of everything thrown in. I’ve decided that it’s time to set up a separate blog that focuses on my wildlife writing, ostensibly because it will be easier for people who enjoy wildlife to navigate around, but mostly because it will let me set up a whole new blog without having to write anything for months.

To start off with, I will just be reposting wildlife articles from my other blog to here, with minor changes here and there to make sure they make sense. Once I catch up with myself, I will post any wildlife articles both here and at 23thorns.com

Note that almost none of the photo’s on the blog are mine; I’m no photographer. Should you find a picture of your own here, and want it removed, let me know and I will do so immediately. Should you wish to sue me, bear in mind that I don’t have any money and will have to sell one of my children.

That’s already far too long for an about page, so I’ll stop. Read on. And enjoy.

    I’ve kept on reading, and kept on snorting with laughter and enjoying the photos. So my revenge is to nominate you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award (they don’t have one for Makes Me Snort with Laughter…). You obviously don’t have to do anything about it, but if you’d like to, go to the following link for instructions: http://talltalesfromchiconia.wordpress.com/2013/12/14/inspiration-has-struck-2/

    Thank you for visiting Chiconia. I’m not sure what can have appealed to you, but I appreciate the Like. I enjoyed your Furry Animals 2 post. I laughed a lot! I love the way blogging lets you talk to complete strangers on the other side of the globe… keep writing, you’re good at it.

    Well I actually do like 23 Thorns. It sounded interesting and compelling and to my thinking at first I thought it had to do with thorny nature or maybe had some prickly aspects of life in general. Or maybe the number 23 had some Biblical significance. But, I just really did like it. It is good and it sands out and it is not forgettable. So you did well with that!

    I keep looking at the blog title. I do like simple but just wild life seems not to hit entirely. Maybe it could be On Wildlife, a lighthearted look….. putting the On hints at essays to come I think. I do enjoy your humorous take on the creatures around you. The fact that you live in a place with such interesting and to most of us alien ones just makes it compelling.
