Tartan Ferret
Test

Kicking & screaming

"You need to have a blog!" our friends in Scottish Enterprise told us. "Please don't say that!" I shouted from under the desk. "I have enough to do and who the hell's interested in what I had for breakfast?"
My rather old-fashioned ideas were based on watching teenagers - having just parted from their friends - immediately embarking on hour-long texting sessions with those same friends about lipsticks, hairstyles, boys and no doubt what they'd had for breakfast on some new diet.
So frenzied has been the finger-blurring messaging that I swear they'd rather wear incontinence pads than interrupt a session by attending to a call of nature. Now I know that's not blogging, but to someone who's used to writing with a feather quill, it's in the same technical neck of the woods.

But I've undergone counselling and have managed to stop the uncontrolled weeping whenever a cell phone bleeps and am now able to discern the difference between tweeting, texting and blogging - or  should I say  twtng, txtng & blgn?

This blogging might be fun however and it's a good way of chatting to members, friends and transient strangers about what we get up to at the Scottish Tartans Authority and what's happening in our world of tartan and Highland dress and all its offshoots.

The suggestion to start blogging really arose because we've spend over 18 months awaiting an upgrade to our creaking website that was falling into disrepair because our last web contractors ceased trading. Well the day has arrived and the new site is up and running and a-blogging we will go.

We wanted to call this the MacBlog but discovered that  some new boys on the computer block have already coined the word  so we'll just hang about until they go out of business and make it our own. There will doubtless be the odd snag here and there so please do let us know if you come across anything that isn't quite working as expected.
