First things first, I’m very new to blogging, so as the last segment in the title to this entire blog suggests, this will be a work in progress as I learn the ‘art’.
I guess I could start by telling anyone who has landed on this page why I decided to start a blog…..well I guess the truth is i’m quite a social animal and love to talk, so what better way to chat to a large audience than write it all down and put it out there. As we are all fundamentally flawed human beings there is also an element of catharsis to to writing this blog, so believe me when I tell you I fully intend to write about a huge range of subjects in the following pages, you will get everything from film reviews to my deep dark thoughts one day, and the next could be a one line joke entry, I’m just going to go with how I feel on the day and let nature take its course so there will be the odd rant in there too! I also reserve the right to be wrong now and again in my blog and most likely will be accidentally factually incorrect in some posts that follow this introduction.
I’m not a trained or experienced writer so don’t expect me to follow any common rules of grammer or spelling, but what I write will always be honest and truthful unless I state any posts is a work of fiction.
I guess now would be a good time to tell you a little about myself. My Name is Daniel, I live in Buckinghamshire in the UK. I’m somewhere near the halfway point between 40 and 50, I have 2 children and a wife and we all live together in a cosy cottage, and yes, I do feel blessed. When I’m not working I like running, horror books, cycling, DIY, learning (mainly about myself as a person at the moment), blogging (hmm maybe, we’ll see), cooking amongst other things. In a former life I was chef, now if you know any chefs you may well know that as a trade it never leaves you…go on, ask them, therefore in my mind I’m a chef who now works as a…. well more about that later…..I’m still trying to decide exactly how to format the blog so will be keeping some things back until the right time.
I hope this post was enough to plant a seed in your mind as to what I’m about, and also what some of the following posts will be about, if it sounds like the kind of blog you want to follow then subscribe now, if not, then a simple thanks for reading.
