My last post here was on the 11th April 2011. Nearly three years ago I chose to put this site on hold in order to make a change in my professional life. Needless to say my life has changed quite a bit since then and I’ve spent a long time deciding what I should do here. I’ve now reached a conclusion…
Henceforth, this site will provide me with a means to express and talk about my own interests, whether they be personal or professional. Rather than separate my life into different windows, each designed for a different audience, I’ve decided that I simply want to be myself.
Am I taking a risk by mixing business with pleasure? Perhaps I am. However I think that understanding a little more about person that you’re working with goes a very long way to assuring a great working relationship.
Like everyone else I’m a complex combination of many different abilities and interests. I’m a Brit living in the South of France, a freelance software developer, a husband, a dad of two, a passionate sailor, a photographer, a go player, a climber and a cook. I enjoy technology, astronomy, puzzle solving, teaching, travel, the mountains, the sea, music, working for myself and lots of other things besides.
None of these things may interest you. Some of them might. The chances are slim that all of them will, or else you’d be me. Bearing this in mind my blog will be organised into various categories so that, should you so wish, you can read just the posts that interest you.
For old-times sake I’ll be leaving most of my photography related posts – hopefully they’ll still bring some measure of usefulness to those in need.
