Hello :)

If you want to find out more about me, read my Newsvine Bio or the About page on my personal site. The main one's; my ancient, original blog Kerblam! (sadly neglected these days) effectively went into stasis from the moment Blogger withdrew their FTP publishing support. It's amusing to leaf through.

I also worked on a tiny, unnoticed blog called the Uniblog, partially specific to my time at University... including all the pitfalls I came across through my years at uni and where I imparted pieces of guidance and useful tips for prospective or current students.

I'm a forlorn wantrepreneur...

If you want to contact me, go to this page and pick a method of delivery. I don't publicise my main address in public due to spam. My already-saturated inboxes from previous addresses are still complaining.

Thanks for reading!
