Hobby Year in Review 2017

Hobby Year Summary

This year was finally the year that I decided to push on and work on my hobbies.  A close friend of mine has significantly inspired me to focus on doing things that I WANT to do, above just doing the things that I feel I HAVE to do.

Hi folks.

This is my first ever post, and I don’t quite know what to say.  I’m going to be updating the appearance and content of the site fairly frequently over the next few weeks as I get to grips with this blogging malarkey, and get some content.  I’m going to be backdating a few entries, but hopefully it won’t be too confusing!

Brief introduction, this blog is a place for me to show models / creative stuff I do, and to act as motivation to keep me doing it.

I work on web applications as a career, but I’m going to resist the urge to do too much with the blog in that sense; this is for my hobby interests not my job.
