About this blog

Partially inspired by this Cracked article, and partially inspired by Uri Geller (long story, see the first blog post for details), this blog was where my New Year’s Resolution to write something (anything) every single day of 2013 was documented. Once the year ended, I kind of kept going.

Follow me on Twitter for updates. I also have a weekly column at Headstuff.org.

About the scribbler

My name is Ciaran Conliffe, and I’ve been writing, on and off, since I was five years old. I’ve been shortlisted for and won awards, and I’ve both completed and failed NaNoWriMo. I also rant on Twitter way more than is healthy. In my spare time I do software engineering and get paid for it.

    About the article on Lola Montez : “she wound up dancing at a reception of the Czar of Russia by Friedrich the Great.” : heavy stuff ! : Prussian king Friedrich I der Grosse died in 1786. Lola Montez was born on 17th of February 1821 in Grange (Ireland). She danced for Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm IV and his guest Russian czar Nicolas I in Berlin in September 1843.
    Kind regards from the Flanders, Belgium

    Hi, Ciaran,
    My father’s family originated in Inishowen a very long time ago, O’Muirgheasain, and I was delighted to read your article about The Poitin Republic of Urris, thank you. Best, – Doug
