What's it all about?

I spent my last year in London writing sporadic blog posts as I prepared to move to Australia. It was cathartic, but I never seemed to have the time to dedicate myself to regular postings - life away from a laptop took priority, which is how I like it really. When I had time though, I would love to waffle, to share, express my thoughts and ideas.

In fact, my blog helped to secure my first writing job in Australia, and now seven years on I work as the editor of The Hinterland Times, a monthly paper in Queensland, plus various other proofing and sub-editing jobs.

After a messy incident with a domain and website company last year (no customer support or guidance) and finding my page stolen and placed on the 'dark web', it has taken some time to get my website name back and move to a much better provider! But now I am here, and it's great to be back!

So, what IS my blog all about this time around? I think it will be sharing my professional experiences and insights for those who may find them useful (or entertaining!), peppered with some personal thoughts and anecdotes.

Again, it will probably be sporadic, but I hope when you dip in to the pages you will find things to interest or amuse you. Thanks for reading and I will be back soon!
