Ten Bob Note – Where have you gone

by John on June 16, 2009

I had been wondering for a while why whenever I tried looking at Ten Bob Note’s website it returned a 404 page.

 I found this when I was reading the Canal World Forum.

Well, what an unexpected reaction. Many thanks to all of you for your kind comments re my web site.

Why did I take it down?? Well, probably the main reason was the amount of time it required to update and maintain it. My only form of internet access is my mobile phone and on occasions, the link can be worse than useless.

Also, I did feel that I was ‘under scrutiny’ in everything I did, I started to feel a bit ‘uncomfortable’ with it all in recent months.

I never ever expected the blog to become as popular is it became. As Cotswoldman thought, I started it initially so that friends and family could keep up with my adventures and whereabouts.

I have to say it will be a great loss to the canal blogging world as Ernies website was one of the best, It was the first that I would click on when I went online, the photographs were like being there with Ernie .

Blogging should be a pleasure and not a chore, so please Ernie still post but only when you want to, I won’t remove the link to your site just incase you change your mind

This is a good site and the photographs over there are very good to learn more about London. Thanks this site is working well know. Please add a feature of London canal routs to make it comfortable for travelers.

I agree, I always enjoyed his web site, particularly his photographs. These provided a fix for a once a year boater.
