An Important announcement

Writing this post on my new computer!!!!!

To mark the occasion I have an announcement,

As of the 4th of December I will be working full time as a photographer.

If you are a long term reader of this blog, or a friend of mine reading this on face book, you will know I have been working towards this moment for some years and now it has arrived. My appeal against the decision over my job was successful and I have been offered redundancy starting when the call centre closes.

All this would not have been possible if it was not for the support and encouragement give to me by Carolyn over many many years, I only hope that now I can make her proud.

As often happens when I sit down to write a blog post, I end up spending my time reading other peoples blogs, I log on to Blogger and right there on my dashboard are posts from my favourite blogs, its too much of a temptation for me to resist.

So instead of an interesting and insightful blog post on the meaning of life, the universe and everything, which I was going to write, here is a list of links to the posts that took up all my time, it’s their fault not mine.

First off the most inspiring story i have read in years.

Green shoots

Another post along the same lines, well close at least.

A life in the day of me

This is not just one post but a link to the blog, still waiting for an update in the on going saga, makes you realise how good your life really is.

Life in Windermere

And finally the return of one of my favourite bloggers.

Ramsay daily photos

Looking back maybe i have written an interesting and insightful blog post on the meaning of life, the universe and everything.

Photos part of a set i did on the Norfolk coast last weekend.

The rules of how to be a great Blogger.

Blogging, I’ve been doing this for over 2 1/2 years, that puts me in the top 5% of blogs (lots start and finish after just a few weeks) so I know all the rules of how to be a great Blogger.

1. Blog frequently

2. Stick to a theme

3. Interact with your visitors

4. Visit loads of blogs and leave comments

5. Link like mad to other blogs on your chosen subject.

But do I follow them, well at first I did and success did follow, but now as other parts of my life take up more of my time I find that all my blogs are suffering from neglect. The obvious answer is to stop blogging on at least some of the blogs and that does have a bit of an appeal, but it has taken so long to build them up I would hate to waste all that effort. So I’m going to keep plodding along, posting infrequently, hardly visiting any blogs, commenting on even fewer blog and keeping my interaction and linking to a minimum. I know it’s not the best way to keep the blogs going, but I also know that when I have more time it will be easier to get them up to full speed if they are already moving, even if they are just creeping along.
