Ok, I know what you are gonna say. WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN? And you’d be right. I’ve had lots of things going on this year. Not least the birth of my youngest son, who seems to be nocturnal. Work has been busy and I’ve had my head buried in books learning all sorts of new things but have just being unable to find the time to write about them here. Work late, put kids to bed, learn HTML5 gaming/ responsive layouts/ CSS3 animations, no sleep because my youngest son decides not to then back to work…. you know the cycle.
Then Christmas arrived and as is customary at my work we did secret Santa… don’t worry kids this is not the real one, this is a pretend one that adults make up so they can get presents too. Well my present from this pretend Father Christmas (I prefer to call him this) was a book but not just any old book. It was a book that rejuvenated me and as you can see the evidence is here in my blog. This book is about finding your passion and blogging about it either video, audio or written. It gives you the courage to just get out there and do it. The ultimate goal is to take your passion and make money from it but what the book said to me was that if it is your passion and you write about it people will listen and if people listen surely that is the ultimate goal. You don’t all have to agree with what I say in fact I hope you all don’t. And I’m sure a lot of you will think I get things wrong and I will learn things from you but it’s all about starting that dialog.
SO WHAT’S THE BOOK CALLED THEN? I hear you cry.
Now I’m not saying that it’s the greatest book I’ve every read or that it will make me rich. I m also not sure of the simplistic tone of the book. All I’m saying is that it’s put the fire back in my belly to start my writing again. Which is a good thing. May be it could do the same for you.
So what now? Well back to it. You gonna be hearing a lot more from me this year so I hope your ready.
Oh by the way, did I tell you? 2012 is gonna be my year….I hope it’s yours too.
Happy New Year !!!!
