Read that heading above - and then email me to reassure me that it is an obvious mistake. Maybe it is supposed to say 32 days to go...or 28...23?
It is certainly true that time has flown by since my last blog about the redesign of the Birmingham Post, so i thought I should do the decent thing and produce an update.
Coming towards the end of an 11-hour day working through the 1001 things I need to do before The Post relaunches as a compact on Monday October 20. Sometimes the days pass quickly and much is achieved and sometimes I seem to work flat out and still only clip a few things off the list.
Today has been quite productive
Having just started blogging yesterday, I had committed myself to keeping a regular dialogue about how I am involved in redesigning the Birmingham Post. But I am just about to break that rule on day two. And it is all Andris Nelson's fault.
You may not realise it, but this is an important moment.
Not only is this my first blog, it is also the start of a guided tour - hopefully lasting a few weeks and led by me - through the redesign of the Birmingham Post.
Led by my editor, Marc Reeves, designer Terry Watson and me - the Executive Editor of the paper - have now produced a 24-page dummy of how the Post looks in its historic change from broadsheet to compact (I don't like the word 'tabloid').
