Blogs Blogs Blogs!
Yesterday I passed a mini-milestone; it's one year since I started this blog and over 300 posts later I'd like to say thank you to everyone who drops by occasionally. OK, I know it's nothing groundbreaking, but personally I find blogging is a great way to force yourself to write things up and also have a central place to store snippets.
Quite a few people have offered me encouragement and help along the way (you know who you are!) so in the same spirit I'd like to mention that fellow Perth'ite Keith Woods has started blogging. He already has some good info on his blog, so why not click and have a look!
