So, I'm new to blogging. I'm 37 and feeling really old. I command officer cadets who I could conceivably have given birth to (if I'd started early). I have far too many grey hairs and wrinkles that are starting to sprint away from my eyes in a mad dash towards my hairline.
A few days back I was quizzing said officer cadets on the merits of the various social media platforms. Before that I had to Google what a blog was and how one makes one. It turns out you need a website for blogs and even the people who use TikTok and Snap Chat don't fully understand what their purpose is. But hey, someone's making a shed load of cash out them somewhere, well done them for making a multi-million-dollar business out of stuff folk don't really need.
So I've done loads of research on how to make it as an self-published author, and it turns out you need an online presence (plus decent books of course; I keep getting told mine are good and I hope you'll agree). Hence my website, hence this blog. I'll try to witter on about my crazy life every week or so; if you ever feel like you have too much on in your own life, read about mine, it will make you feel better. Alternatively, if you have more on, let me know, please! It might just help me.
