Some people think that blogging is a waste of time. However, excellence in blogging can be very prestigious - attracting national or even international recognition.
Here's just one example.
Over in The Cayman Islands, the governors of a new secondary school were mulling over possible names for their institution. They had already rejected "The Rod Hull and Emu Memorial School", "Tax Haven Academy" and "Dreams Can Come True Grammar School" when the Chair of Governors looked over at Winston Brathwaite who was chuckling about something on his laptop.
"What ya doin' Winston?"
"Why? Me looking at a blog site from dat lil place dey call Wales."
"Not dat Goin' Gently one? Me lovin that too!"
Anyway, one thing led to another and the upshot is that by the end of the governors' special meeting they had agreed unanimously that the name of the new secondary should be "John Gray High School" in honour of the greatest Welsh contributor to the blogosphere. If you don't believe me please look at the accompanying pictures. The camera never lies.
