Lord of the blogs (not the bath) August 16, 2006

Posted by grhomeboy in Blogging.

Stanley McHale started keeping a blog to stop himself spending all day in the bath.

But 12 months to the day after he wrote his first internet log, the ECHO blogger – as internet diary-writers are known – has clocked up more than 1,000 fans.

“As a comic, you work half an hour a day and it’s easy to be lazy,” he says.

“But to be successful you have to put ideas forward and if you can write a thousand words a day it shows you are not just lying in the bath.”

Since starting his online diary, Stanley, who lives in the city centre, has already totted up hundreds of thousands of words.

And the 29-year-old has not missed a day since he started, which has become the basis for an hour-long show.

He says: “I’ve done 420,000 words and Lord of the Rings was 410,000 words.

“That took him 14 years and this has taken me a year.

“Who’s the winner there? Obviously it’s him – I’ve made no money or fame.”
