If It’s Broke, Fix It

When I come up with an idea, it’s natural instinct for me to want to push forward with making it a reality but what you have to accept when doing that is that the idea might fall flat on its face; just because it works in my head doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll work in reality. And when that occurs, that’s when the need to fix something – or to remove it entirely – must kick in.

Moving On: Looking Back on Season Two of ‘Opening Doors’

I totally preferred this season of my podcast Opening Doors with Shaun Nolan for several different reasons: I love the new format for the show, short episodes (45 mins instead of 55) and five guests per episode (instead of three); I love the new series of questions covering topics like racism, homophobia, transphobia and more; and I loved the wide variety of guests that I managed to have.

It’s not much and it’s nothing overly inspiring, but I think it’s necessary nonetheless, if only just for me.

The New Year Blues

I may have had a fantastic year last year, but the start of this year has been a bad one for a multitude of reasons. There’s something about January that stresses me out every single year and in all honesty, I am always glad to see the back of it. I call it The New Year Blues; a period of about six weeks or so at the start of the year when everything is a big grey blur, and they were certainly at play this year.

Getting Long In The Tooth: A Reflection on Four Years of Blogging

If you pay any attention to my blog at all then you’d know that I’m a big fan of reflecting on time that has gone by and looking back, so I’m sure you’ll be equally as surprised as I am that I was blissfully unaware that today marked the four year anniversary of when I set up this blog; four years since I started trying to put my unique stamp on the World via the World Wide Web.
