• Wondering what I should do with this blog…thoughts? Hello there, Can I ask a favour? This blog has been around a bit. It needs some freshening up. I mean, that header photo! The dinky staples!

  • This is my 1000th blog. Strewth. I wrote my first blog post June 28, 2009. I had no idea what I was doing. I still don’t.

  • how to develop your blog voice I was recently contacted by Srinivas Rao of BlogcastFM to do a podcast with him.

  • An eccentric and some e-loveliness I have days when I resent blogging. I’ve been blogging now for almost four years, 3-4 posts every week, largely unpaid for my toils, sometimes uprooted by trolls. I wonder why I do it. Some days.

  • how to start a blog. actually, how to start anything. A while back Clare Lancaster of Women in Business asked readers to share “the tips you would give yourself if you were starting up your blog today”. I get asked the same a lot. It’s funny because just yesterday I was thinking about a feature I wrote on the early blog sensations. This was back more
  • how to build a blog (a Cleo interview) I was quoted in this month’s CLEO magazine. I thought it might be of interest to anyone who’s thinking of start a blog and is not sure where to start.
