Chris Trotter started blogging just a couple of months ago, and, predictably, was an overnight sensation.
The winning way with words, the sometimes deeply insightful, sometimes downright provocative, commentary won him legions of fans and enemies and a big slice of the blogging action in our corner of cyberspace. Some of his posts, such as the review of the ill-fated City Vision administartion in Auckland City, were sublime.
Then, after the election, he swore off blogging.
Now he’s back! Here. The new blog is named after the North Otago road that leads to the farm where he spent much of his childhood. (Homepaddock seems to be familiar with the area.) In keeping with the arcadian theme, the blog is intended as “an outlet for his more ruminative and eligaic impulses.” Reflective, in a word.
Welcome back, Chris. I look forward to being variously entertained, challenged, enlightened, inspired and appalled.
