Blog List

 

Blog articles:  2017     2016      2015      2014      2013      2012

One web page per month's blogs. The articles are minimally vocalised.

Items for shorthand revision are in RED*
Items with specific vocabulary are in GREEN**

The blogs here are now entirely up to date and new ones will be posted here. Only the past 2 months (the previous month and the current month in progress) will be duplicated on the Blogger site http://long-live-pitmans-shorthand.blogspot.co.uk.

The shorthand for most of the 2012 year blogs is due to be rewritten more clearly at a later date.
