Hi! Welcome to my blog.
I’m a 30-something teacher/engineer, who occasionally thinks he’s some kind of writer, musician and cartoonist. I live in Perth, Western Australia with my wife (who I refer to here as Wife because she likes anonymity) and our kids.
This blog isn’t about anything in particular. Often I’ll talk about movies, music, environmental issues or some other random topic. I also quite like to draw things instead.
Some questions you might have …
What’s the deal with the blog title? It sounds rude. Yeah I know. That wasn’t really my intention though. Anyway, it’s explained here.
What’s with all those cartoon characters in your header, and why do you have a gravatar pic of a rat? Explained here.
Your blog hasn’t been updated for ages. Is it actually still active? Probably. Or maybe not. I don’t really know.
Where should I start? I reckon the Best Of page is as good a place as any.
Do you have any other blogs? Why yes! Please head here for my ‘A Song a Day’ blog where I posted … umm … a song a day.
Do you a place for your Twitterings? Not anymore.
I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. There are no judges and no special rules, and no trophy, you were simply chosen. And we all like to be chosen every once in a while, don’t we? This award is what you want it to be. Your mission, if you chose to accept it, is to go to my blog post titled “The Liebster Award ~ Wow, it’s a little bit of work.”, read it, follow the rules and pass along the love. Go ahead, do it!
Thank you again for your help proofreading the first chapter. I will be working on your doodle tomorrow.
No worries! I’ve seen the drawing now too. Very cool 🙂
Was just pondering starting a new travel blog – like the world needs another one – and my googling led me (quite happily) here. I’m a blogger with no particular focus like you, so appreciate your sentiment. Am beginning to wonder though if a so called ‘niche’ might make it easier to build a better following. On the other hand, if there’s a million other people in that niche it kind of loses its nicheness… Anyways, I look forward to reading your future offerings. 🙂
Thanks. Yeah that’s true on both sides. Guess you just have to decide what would interest you more. To be honest, I feel like the biggest factor in gaining a following is posting regularly. I started another blog where I just post a Youtube link and write something very briefly, but I do it almost every day, and it’s already overtaken this blog in terms of number of followers. So you want to make sure you’re doing what you enjoy otherwise you will lose steam quickly and you won’t post much (if at all) and you’ll never have time to build up much momentum.
Thanks – wise words which I’ll heed. BTW, sorry for using your blog to get some free counselling! 🙂
That’ll be $485.
