Moving To Hugo
15th August 2017
If I was to look at the internet archive wayback machine I could hand on heart say I’ve never had a personal website I’ve ever really been happy with. I’m not a designer, and I’m fine with that. Aside from that I’ve never really found a platform that I gel with. I had static html and I liked it, but with all developers I didn’t like the manual process of FTP’ing to a server, along with maintaining links, URL’s etc.

770.6 miles, that was what was on the car’s milometer when I pulled up on the driveway after a week away. The family had been to Devon, we left the previous Friday to visit the “English Riviera”. My only previous encounter with the South Coast had been a visit to the New Forest before a week on the Isle of Wight. We loved that trip and it’s safe to say we enjoyed this.

I can’t pinpoint exactly when, but I’ve come to the realisation that the daily routine I’ve worked so hard to build is broken. After a coffee & chinwag with my good friend Dan Furze, it seems that it’s not just me, which is always reassuring. I’m aware that everyone has natural peaks and troughs in life - hell I’ve had enough myself - but recently it’s felt like I’ve been unable to climb out of this one.
Dealing with rejection
12th July 2016
“A rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success” - Bo Bennett. I’m not going to go into the full details, but twice in the space of 4 weeks I’ve been left having to deal with some kind of rejection. Now this isn’t a post wanting pity, it’s more to serve as a permanent reminder to me, personally, on how I’ve dealt with it, and also something which may help others.
Burning the candle

The great thing about Marc’s‘30 day writing challenge’ is reading such a great cross section of varied content, as well as gaining a lot of inspiration. One of the themes I’ve enjoyed the most so far has been around people’s morning & evening routines. Some people get up early and write, others check emails, whilst some use their “spare time” to exercise — the reason for the quotes is that this is very much dependent on peoples individual set of circumstances, I know in my life at present the very concept of spare time is but a dream and it irks me when people comment or question other peoples dedication to things without knowing the set of circumstances surrounding the person(s).
