My new website!


For some time now my girlfriend (a very active blogger) has been pestering me to start up my own blog site, so here it is!

I’ve never been much of a vocal person, previous websites have been plain and simple without many updates. The only thing I updated regularly was the photo gallery… I’m hoping with this site to be more active and refresh the content more often.

I’m doing this for many reasons, mainly to push through some changes in my own self being, as the problems with being too reserved is that I’ve missed many opportunities and have fallen behind in many projects. I’ve always believed that I can do anything I set my mind to and still do believe, but in the past I’ve not done things for the irrational fear of sticking my neck out too far and getting it cut off or upsetting others by my actions. Basically I’ve always tried too hard to avoid conflicts at my own expense… ( in some cases causing conflicts by avoiding others! )

So hopefully with this site and other changes I’m making to my personality and activities in life I can bring about more positive results for myself and those I around me. I’ve realised that I must act to achieve the things I want in life before they become out of reach. At 35 years old I have missed too much but can still achieve a lot if I act now.

The first 2 posts I’ve made when setting this site up are from my old website, as I work on this blog I’ll no doubt post more such thoughts, dreams or strange experiences. I also hope to integrate a working gallery of some sort, similar to what I had on the old sites, but for now I’ve put a few up for the sidebar random pics.

Other directions for this blog (which may change over time) will be about my hobbies such as the computer programs I work on, games I play both online and offline and indeed my photography.

So keep an eye on me, don’t expect daily updates but I should be able to make something fairly regular. Indeed feel free to prod me as always people trying to change their life need to be reminded of their commitments. This is why I’m linking this new blog to the changes I want to make in my life, by committing myself before others to make changes I become accountable for them, no longer can I hide inside myself from the world. So here I am, taking my big step forward, committing myself to continue this momentum and achieve something good in life.

Thankyou for visiting my blog and I hope to see more and contribute more as time goes on.

  1. well, it seems like a nice blog page but I came looking for the lazy journalists airplane crash story, what ever happened to that?

  2. Nice blog but I was really looking for the Lazy Jounalists plane story. Please bring it back.


  3. Hi,

    Umm, yes, that plane generator story was on my old website which got blasted some time ago.
    I have noticed from my logs that there’s a bit of a demand for it. Unfortunately I haven’t yet located a backup copy of that script so I can’t put it back in a hurry…
    I will keep looking for it or try to re-create it as I did before since it was quite fun.

    Keep an eye out as I’ll post about it when I can put it back up.

    Thanks for the visit!

  4. Hi Radan

    If you can’t beat ’em… eh?

    Just wanted to say thanks for all the behind the scenes effort you put in on Aussieblogger and congrats on launching your own blog 🙂

  5. Yes, can’t beat ’em so join ’em… 🙂
    Will take me some time to build myself up to a “regular” blogger tho – but will eventually make it…

  6. Blogging can be really relaxing and help people unwind after a heavy day, AND you get to read into the lives of other people and fulfil that voyeuristic urge without getting a restraining order 🙂

    Welcome to Blog land!

  7. Ah, your girlfriend pointed out we have the same great taste in WordPress themes. :-).

    Good luck with your blogging – I actually dried up soon after starting, then got going again, and somehow never stopped. But who knows what will happen in the future?
