Online Reviews & Analysis

ABC Tech & Games on 30th April 2012 I just passed 100,000 dollars in Google earnings. But unlike Nokia, I’m not resting on my laurels. This was purchased by the ABC as a syndicated article from my blog where it was originally published as Levelling Up In Life, Avoiding Complacency.

After the 2012 Lizzies iTJourno awards night I went to a piano bar with some friends which was fun. I think the carpet pattern was a Rorschach test (I see a lion, what do you see?):

I often have good ideas for articles that don’t fit the audience of my blogs or deserve a bigger audience so I’ve decided to pitch those ideas to various other publications. Please contact me by email if you have a good idea for an article I could write in 1 of those categories.
