Brothers and Sisters in Arms

The Welsh blogosphere is reasonably small when you compare and consider the size and number of blogs in England and Scotland. We seem to dwindle in numbers from time to time. Some disappear for a while, and some for good. Other blogs seem to take their place, and with mixed success.

You could say that we are a 'family', even to the point of looking out for one another, as it seems from the content of some emails that I've been receiving in recent weeks. It looks as though other family members have also received similar communication having written the following:

...we have already been informed that this blog is being monitored hourly by a large Cardiff legal firm on behalf of the Welsh Assembly Government.
It seems I have also been missed by my brother and sister while offline sorting out problems with this blog. Your concern has not gone unnoticed my siblings, and it appears there are several of us undergoing personal attacks for being anonymous at this time - Hen Ferchetan and Matt Wardman have written excellent posts on the subject.

This blog is going nowhere for the time being, and besides, it took me ages to sort out the new template and alterations. Do you honestly expect me to leave the room once I've redecorated it?

Anonymous complaints received will be passed on. At least I won't be phoning x8298 again [private joke]

Keep on blogging, and happy blogging!

[Look out for comments that I take myself too seriously again - laugh]

Update: Revealing update from Matt Wardman of the Wardman Wire.

Having only just sorted out a proper statistic counter Im learning all kinds of things about who's visiting Amlwch to Magor. Thankfully it seems that it's so boring and inoffensive large legal firms are not amongs them!

There's more to Welsh blogs than just Welsh political blogs (thank goodness!). Are you aware of It's an aggregator of English language blogs about Wales - and you're listed there, that's where I read this post from.

As you already have a link to britblog and Blogpower on your sidebar (nice new templarte BTW), maybe you could add one to BlogCymru as well?

Hello Rhys,

There's a link to Blog Cymru in my Eclectic Blogroll. Have now added the button too.

Best wishes,

The Wardman Wire is now officially supported by the Welsh Assembly Government out of public funds.

How do we know if we are being graced by this big boy from Cardiff then?
I thought spying was illegal.
How much is this costing and who in eth Assembly has sanctioned this and why - I think some questions need to be asked of our political servants

VM - spying isnt illegal if all they do is read the blogs - we are the ones who make our blogs public.
