My Diary For 2023

Every year I write a blog post about which diary system or set up I am going to use for the following twelve months. In recent years, I have moved away from a Filofax (I trialled something earlier this year - more of that in a minute) and fallen in love with the Hobonichi printed diaries. For the last two years I have used a Hobonichi Weeks as my personal planner and I won't be deviating from that this year. I have tried a Hobonichi Techo A6 a couple of times but have never managed to feel comfortable with it size-wise.  I have always lusted after the Hobonichi Cousin A5 as a main work planner so, this year, I have bitten the bullet at launch time and invested in my very first one.

Jan Moir of the Daily Mail - GUILTY OF SLOPPY & HOMOPHOBIC JOURNALISM!!

For part-time bloggers like myself, it really grates when an established journalist, such as Jan Moir, allows personal opinion (almost ALL of it unresearched and totally untrue) and homophobia to get in the way of reporting interesting, unbiased articles.

So, from this "article" we are to believe that gay couples should not have friends over to stay over after a night out? That 33-year old men cannot die from natural causes? That every death (suspicious or natural) of gay men should now be questioned because it's most likely to be suspicious? That Stephen Gatley was chosen to appear in Andrew Lloyd Webber's West End version of Joseph because he was famous, not because he could sing in tune?

My message to Jan Moir is plain and simple. Donate whatever fee you were paid for this shoddy journalism to charity, conduct adequate research in future and reassess your privilaged position in the world of media because I think you've just abused it to the highest level.



EDITED TO ADD:

The Daily Mail has tried to soften the blow by adjusting the headline of the article but has failed to change the scrolling bar at the side. What can't speak, can't lie!!

But also, I think that the editorial team behind this
furore have some explaining to do too. Whilst Jan Moir wrote the words, someone has to own up to the
responsibility of clearing this article for
publishing!!!
