HI everyone

Today I’m blogging about yours truly – a little about me and why I blog. I started out as a medical lab technologist, then I ran my own private environmental lab and then managed a geochemical lab. Now I’ve given all that up to write for a living. Currently I am a freelance copywriter. You don’t need a blog when you are a copywriter, but it helps. My passion is to be an author and it’s an essential these days to have a blog for that. Being a writer I love quotes and that’s what I started posting. But a year after starting a blog, and telling myself I could teach myself all about blogging, I am no further ahead than posting quotes and a few short stories. I know there is so much more to blogging and that is why I’m taking a course ie Blogging 101. Teaching a computer-challenged individual such as me the finer points of blogging might be a long shot, but nothing ventured nothing gained. I want to tell people about my books, discuss them with my readers (should I ever get any) and interact with other authors. Writing and all about the craft of writing is what consumes my interests these days. I want to share my views about books and writing and I want to hear yours. A year from now that is what I want to be doing with my blog. All the best to my fellow Blogging 101ers. Let’s blog up a storm!

The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches but to reveal to him his own.
