I am an artist, so I have dedicated time to producing paintings and subsequently selling those; I am an (amateur) web-designer so some of my time has been immersed in manipulating source-code to get a desired visual output, oh and of course, I am a SEO copywriter. On the face of it I look prolific and busy. That is always my intention. But as I get engrossed in one task, the margin of time to fulfil other tasks magically evaporates. It’s amazing! Read More

The top two motivations are usually money and education; and these reasons are usually more than enough for them to come up with a real blog. Read More
