Kinship

YOUR BLOG TITLE HERE

 

When I was starting off, I felt a bit like the kid in Dr Suess’ “Oh! the places you’ll go” because I felt purposeful and enthusiastic. I wanted to make a name for myself and thought it could easily be done. Quickly I found that my absent minded enthusiasm was my downfall. For me it was an adventure, something I had never attempted. For the rest of the free thinking world it had all been done before.

“I’m sorry kid but your idea has already been done. We’ve seen everything you’ve got to offer before”

That’s what it felt like. Quickly, like an outlaw of the literary world I started to clutch at straws. I was begging for reviews, looking for a quick way out. I missed something very important in my train of thought. If its all been done before, if the world has seen something like me before then there’s a chance, it (whatever it is) is out there somewhere and will be sympathetic towards me. Logic kicked in and I was right. There were author’s like me out there.

In this abysmal reality we call life, we will come across kindred spirits. Men and Women who relate to our struggle and with no clandestine intentions, help you. My experiences with these lovely people have left me touched and reinvigorated. One of whom I would publicly like to thank is Carolyn Arnold. She is the Author of Ties That Bind and selflessly offered me an author interview. Which she, to this very day, on a regular basis tweets to her many followers. Please visit her website here to see the other wonders she’s written and writing.

You see there are real people out there, treasures, who will help you. This my friends is kinship, friendship at its best and I just want to thank all my internet buddies like Carolyn who helped me and continue to do so. I am on a quest now to find many more. Pull up a chair, let’s get involved.

Technical Difficulties

Houston we have a problem…sort of

How many times have you been so excited about something that you think you’re going to pass out. Then comes the big opportunity and …nothing. You could almost cry couldn’t you? The best example of this would be Christmas, you’ve been shopping for month(s) and then comes the big day. You’re sat next to the tree, glittery presents everywhere. The kids open their presents and their eyes light up which makes your heart glow. They turn the toy on and…batteries don’t work. What’s next, trawling through the sofa, cupboards, bins looking for any. Knocking on your next door neighbours. It’s a catastrophe and all because you got lost in the magic.

I don’t blame you, you see many a times I fell to the allure of opportunity. I finally had a website to project my thoughts and career and forgot that I need to know what I’m doing. Someone else made this website for me and I thought it was plain sailing. I forgot the fine detail that goes into it, now ladies and gentlemen I am facing minor setback. These aren’t impossible just annoying that I didn’t prepare beforehand. First setback was the layout which became a doddle. Next came the content which will become more frequent. I am not going to lie at present I am probably utilising 20% of the feature that are available but that’s because I still don’t have a full grasp on this website yet.

The new obstacles I face are the podcorner and gallery content. I am having to fuss about with a few different things and find the minutiae slightly nauseous but then its like going to the gym. You haven’t used certain muscles for a while and when you do you feel sick. I am feeling that now with this website but give me a chance, I believe I will prevail. I think in the next few months I will look back and laugh at how I was making mountains out of molehills.

Stay tuned folks, its bound to be a bumpy fun ride ahead.

Houston, we have lift off

Once more, with feeling

Well friends I am back, this time with some clout. For those who don’t know me you can explore the rest of this site to find out more about me. I used to be a blogger but as time went on I began to tire of the same trivial writing, my heart wasn’t truly into blogging. I find I am more of an entertainer, I want to mesmerise people before sending them on their way. So now, I have my very own website, I must say I am tingling with anticipation. Its my own personal playground that I can discover at leisure. I invite anyone to be my guest, my intention is to entertain your thoughts whilst you stay.

You may ask, If I got bored with blogging then what’s the guarantee of maintaining this website, well you ask a valid question. There is no guarantee, the fallibility of man does not allow for any absolute, but I can promise you something else. At the very least I can promise that during your short stay you will be entertained, if you disagree with entertainment then choose any other word of your choice, I will interest you for a while. You see being my personal website, I can do what I want on it. I say with no trepidation that I am HERE to stay.

I hope I have convinced you of my intentions, I am going to use this platform to propagate my craft, to initialise projects and really harness the crux of my potential. There is so much fun to be had in creating and interacting that I am sure that once you get a taste of the material on offer I will have peaked your interest. I am fully aware of the tasty pitfalls and snares on the world wide web level. Truth be told its the case no matter where you are, there will always be the hecklers, haters and trolls but I can live with that. I want to engage people on a level that has been out of reach, until now.

Consider this post an introduction, not that I need to give one, at some point this website will be firing on all pistons. During its infancy I ask that you have fun and I hope you take away something useful. Be well my friends, the best is yet to come.
