I’ve really grown my blog in the last few years, with Reviews of books, films and technology seeming to make the big difference to increasing the number of visitors.

It that shows that readers enjoy the current content I create and would like more of everything. It shows that 80% of readers surveyed said that they would like more personal blog posts:


Readers were asked: What sort of blog posts would you like to see more of?

I think these statistics are great. In the next year and beyond I hope to continue to grow my loyal blog readership.

The blog costs money to host and takes up a considerable chunk of my time. So if you have a product or service that you’d like to advertise on the blog, please don’t hesitate to Contact me. Your advert could reach 20,000+ unique visitors a year.

Blog soon,

Recently I got paid for an article I pitched, wrote, edited and polished off. My first ever piece of paid writing!

The money has paid for this (my personal blog) to be hosted for a year. I had some money left over and thought it was time to invest in a professional website. So here it is:

This blog will continue to be used as it has been – for personal life blog posts, book reviews, etc. It’s only journalistic articles and short stories that I’ve written that will go on

So head over to if you fancy a read.

Write soon,
