“What’s your USP?”…

  In my very early days of serious blogging I was chatting to a lady about my blog and she asked to see it. I gave her my site address and she had a quick look. She asked me, “What’s your USP?” USP wasn’t a term I was familiar with so I drew a blank.

Get a proper job…

  …but I’m a blogger!   I love being a blogger. I write things down and people read it. That is my life and I love it. I am aware that not many people ‘get it’. “What is a blog?” “What do you do?” “Why not just get a proper job?” “I don’t get it?”

Happy Thoughts

I was in such a bad mood yesterday and everything was annoying me. I don’t know if it’s because I was tired, I’m missing Christopher or just ‘one of those days’.
