Hi and welcome to my blog.
This is my first foray to the world of blogging, which is quite ridiculous considering I have worked in the computing industry for nearly 20 years. I have some spare time on my hands, so I wanted to see if I could write successfully and if anyone was interested in what I had to write about.
Now About Me
I just turned 40. And while a lot of people say life begins at 40, I could say that I have lost some direction.
I have a young family, and have all the worries that come with that. As with all children, they are great fun, and then can wear out your patience in no time.
I have worked in the financial sector for over 10 years, but ultimately found it unfullfilling. Creating programs for other companies just lost it’s interest over the years. Being my own boss is where I want to be, but deciding where to put my efforts is the difficult choice to make.
I own some property which I rent out, which has given me some freedom to choose my direction in life, but there is constant balancing of the books required to sustain my lifestyle. Being a landlord is not the easiest of things to do.
So, what will I be writing about
Well, anything that comes to mind. I doubt there will be one particular theme running through the blog, but more whatever I have been spending a lot of time thinking about.
Things I am interested in –
Creativity – I have always been fascinated by the creative nature of people. From music, art to maths and science. How do people come up with new creative ideas?
Inspiring People – I hope to find some inspiration reading other blogs. As well as seeing their creativity, it might inspire me to move in another direction.
Travelling – I have done a lot of travelling in my past, seeing new places, people, listening to their music and especially eating their food are things I love to do.
Making Easy Money – Obviously people need it, but how much and how much effort to put into the pursuit of money? I will never be in the ranks of the billionaires, but a couple of million would do me!
So, this is the first effort. I hope you enjoy reading my blog. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
