The AJ launches a blog.

Astragal starts blogging

For the first time in the 111-year history of the AJ, the magazine’s most famous contributor has gone virtual. Indeed, in a move that will astonish some of his longest serving readers, Astragal has started his very own blog.

Some of the highlights of his first effort at e-scribbling include tales of welding dwarves, a collection of Mackintosh look-alikes, why architects are big in the movies and Seb Coe attempting a pun.

But decides to keep it behind their subscription site. Doh!

If anybody can tell me why this shouldn’t be out front and accessible to everyone as a way of generating interest in the magazine and taking part in the blogging scene, please get in touch and illuminate me.
