8 months silence

That people are still finding and coming to the rediscovering Ripleyville blog is both  gratifying and at the same time embarrassing, since I haven’t posted anything to it in 8 months. To me the layout now looks tired, the way the blog operates clunky and a lot of the content on the Victorian industrial village of Ripley Ville needs up-dating.

I also have a duty to those leaving comments which I have not been fulfilling – apart from approving them so they can be seen by visitors.

I wish that I could say that all this is going to change. The long silence has been because I couldn’t see how exactly I was going to get back on top of things. Since October last year (2016) a slight worsening of a chronic heart condition means that I have had to curb some activities and go at some others more slowly. For a number of months I did little rRV work.

Stabilisation of my condition means that I am, now, continuing to research both the history Ripley Ville and what came before – in early Victorian Bowling and Bradford. I am pursuing much of the finer details of the story of the industrial model village itself and of this earlier story. I have begun again to write about these topics off-line, off-blog.

That, I’m afraid, is what will be happening into the foreseeable future.

I will still approve comments you leave. There is no intention, as things stand, to make changes to the blog as it stands.
