Will I EVER stop going on about my blog...?

Okay, everyone, before you flame me for going on about my blog AGAIN, there is a valid reason for this post.
I've been told that my blog was set up incorrectly, so rather than each new entry being part of the same blog, I was setting up a whole NEW blog for each entry. In the words of Homer Simpson: D'oh!
So, I've just spent this morning redesigning the site with the blog and you can see it by clicking the link below.
I promise I won't mention my blog again (unless absolutely necessary).
Okay, let the flaming begin.

Ashley, in what circumstances do you think it would be 'absolutely necessary' to mention your blog?

As if we would give a toss about your blog? Why does everyone feel they have the self important right to tell everyone everything their thinking, stop it. The world does not need blogs!
Their may be irony involved in this posting!

Piece together the first letters of each post for a clue to the treasure.

All very well to have a blog, though if no-one is interested in you or what you say they are petty pointless exercises in self promotion written to boost ones own ego in the fantasy that people do listen and read.
As to creating a new blog each time you post, I call you on that.
I do not believe that you setup a new database, create a new theme, add widgets etc each time you post.
Utter balls.
You either have no clue as how the software or terminology works or just do not have a clue and want more readers to read your utterings of your attempted organ.
Seems like you are wasting time and money, trust the tax payer is not paying you to self promote your own admitted mistakes, real or not.

@Rickshaweddie - A Town Councillor is paid a maximum of £330 per year - before tax - for additional phone calls, stationery, etc., that they will use in carrying out councillor duties. My blog is on a free site, so NO cost to the tax payer.
For the blog, I am using weebly.com, which allows anyone to set up a website and blog, from their templates. It turned out what I was doing was clicking "add a blog" each time rather than "new post".
I completely agree I don't know how the software works, that's why I'm using a free site to make it a lot easier for me - but I still managed to get it wrong.
Since correcting it, the blog has had two comments.

@Mr Forks - Glad you're as impressed as I am about the two comments on my blog.
I have had other blogs that never got a single comment, so this is a 200% increase.

Just been on your blog, it's rubbish! Not only that but what the hell is 'Fireworks Night'?! It's bonfire night you self publicising fool!
On 10 Jan 2012 at 8:18am Cllr Ashley Price wrote:
@Mr Forks - Sorry, I guess because I never go to the bonfire part of it, I forget that. I've always called it "fireworks night" since I was little (and I only moved to Lewes when I was 20 - so Lewes Bonfire Night is not in my blood as it were).

Cliffe Tableau 2015 Lewes

I was one of their unfortunate suppliers ( we got paid!) more
I like the walk along the ouse to Hamsey church, the view from the top of the Castle, Pells pool, the antique shops and boot fair, the lion in the window of the 15c bookshop, keere street
