>I keep this blog mostly to keep in touch with my friends and family since I moved away from Birmingham. I also use it as an online journal. But the one use that really comes into its own is as a networking/marketing device.
I gave up with the website and may point that here at some stage or change hosts when I have the time to faff – or when I have a pet webmaster that can do it standing on his head. Until that day, if it ever happens, I’m trying to keep this blog a teeny bit professional while trying not to lose my personality nor any of the personal stuff that many of you have said you enjoy reading about.
In the past week I’ve had 3 people contact me, all blasts from the past, including an editor I once interviewed when I worked for Writers’ News. We hit it off so well he asked if I’d like to write for the magazine he was currently editing, and of course I jumped at that because at the time, it was a lovely magazine. When that editor moved to another publication, he took me with him. Now he’s moved again and is working on a different kind of project, but when thinking of people that could possibly work with/for him, he thought of me, Googled me, and found this blog. Then he fired off an email, and of course hopefully, the rest will follow.
I’m dead chuffed he remembered me, moreso that he thought to ask if I’d like to be considered for work. But at least my blog didn’t put him off, and we’ve found a few other interests in common too as a result.
Okay, here are Sunday’s pictures from Old Moor RSPB Reserve:
