Grrr, That blonde lady from Tonbridge Daily!!!!
In which town will you find this?
For the past four or five years Tonbridge Blog has been steadily providing you with daily information, entertainment and general rantings almost always with a Tonbridge focus. I do it unpaid, largely unthanked and out of the goodness of my own heart. So imagine my horror at seeing the face of that blond lady, Suzannah Niklaus staring smugly at me from the page when I opened up this weekend's Courier newspaper! They've only gone and given her nicey, nicey Tonbridge Daily blog a half page feature. Blumin cheek I say. There she is looking all over enthusiastic, with her historical snippets about the tops of buildings and daily observations about the town. She struts around with her Nikon SLR taking abstract photos, at weird angles of obscure bits of buildings, as if she's Mrs. Tonbridge or something. What's she got that Tonbridge Blog hasn't?! What about doing the same for Tonbridge Blog Mr. Frankham. Whenever I get the odd mention in the Courier the name of the blog, miraculously, is not to be seen anywhere. Not so much as a bit of a small print tacked on the end of the piece. I promise you my little efforts really aren't a threat to the might of Northcliffe Newspapers, owners of the Daily Mail and other national rags. By the way Suzannah also writes the Tonbridge Community column for the Courier, which I wrote before her. Is there a pattern developing here? Will her next move be to open a bookshop? Perhaps if I were slimmer better looking, female and blonde I'd also get to appear on page 3 of the local paper!...
