I’ve been restless all day. I finally decided to watch Bones and bake some apple cinnamon muffins from a packet mix. I know. I use packet mix. Call the CWA on me and have me beheaded. I started off by reading the instructions. Immediately, I started laughing because eating the batter and by extension,
I’ve been in quite a few tweet chats and general discussions over the past few days where people have talked about fear holding them back. For example, lots of bloggers are afraid to cold-call a brand. Or cold-email. Seeing these posts by John & Kelly today reminded me of thoughts I’ve had in the
I know, I try to stay away from “gotcha” headlines. I mock them. But this is actually a thought I’ve had in my head for a some time. Is Facebook marketing pointless? All that time and effort put into your blog or brand page – is there a point? Before I start, here’s a
As Friday was my last day at the place I’ve been working for the past two years, I’ve been a bit unsure about how to use my ‘free’ time. None of my projects/businesses/blogs are anywhere near a full time income (though I have many plans) so it is still rabbit job hunting season for me.

Education is not something I blog about often but it is something that is important to me. I’m not a great fan of traditional systems but learning in general. It doesn’t matter what you learn, it matters that you learn. Some people go on to do awesome, world-changing things it’s their studies, some become corporate
We live a particularly wild life these days. As we were playing SNAP! I realised we had no other way of keeping the cards together than by the usual rubber band & hope it all stays together. So I dug in the cupboard and dragged out a spare Sistema “KLIP IT”. A
As soon as I finished my undergraduate degree, I started thinking about postgraduate studies. That could just be because in Anthropology you’re encouraged to do honours, then a PhD.
