Hello to friends, both new and old, and to family who may be reading this.

I have found it cathartic to rant, whine, and write complete nonsensical bullshit on my blogs for a very, very long time. I’ve been blogging since as early as 1997 (that’s about as far back as I can remember online) – longer, if you count the paper journals I kept as a teen.

I write about lots of things, such as what makes me happy, sad, what is going on in my life, the state of my health, what I think on certain subjects, etc.

Sometimes you may not like what I have to say. I totally understand that. I welcome debate, rebuttal and respectful disinclination to agree as much as I welcome (and appreciate) validation and support.

What I will not welcome (or accept) is disrespect or abuse. Such comments will be deleted. Yes, everyone has the right to voice their opinion but that goes hand-in-hand with the responsibility everyone has to not be a dick.

So don’t be a dick.

And to those of you who know me personally in real life away from the computer, if you have any issues with what I write here then please feel free to talk to me about it but also please accept that this is MY space and I am letting my audience see little pieces that make the whole of me. Doing so makes me happy.

I don’t believe in censoring myself to make other people happy.

I am an enigma wrapped in mystery wrapped in bacon.

And a wee note about product reviews…

This is a PR friendly blog. I have worked with a few brands in the past courtesy of Nuffnang, including Twinings Tea, eBay, Eventbrite and RACV and more.

I welcome any and all opportunities to review anything that I might find interesting or think works well with the theme of this blog. So long as you don’t mind the occasional sweary rant (maybe about your product), please feel free to contact me for rates and/or postal info. We can discuss it.

Paid or unpaid, ALL REVIEWS ARE ENTIRELY MY OWN OPINION. No amount of money can make me say nice things about a crappy product. ;)

That being said, unless specifically noted, all products and services reviewed in this blog have been paid for with my own dosh or done voluntarily for funsies.
