Okay, I’ve shared this blog with my Twitter account so I think it’s time for a test run to see what happens.  Alakazam! Will it or won’t it?

Simplification

You wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve really wanted to write about or comment on something, and it has tumbled around in my head only to be eventually lost.  And the thought of trying to maintain three blogs  – puddymuddle.wordpress.com, offprofile.wordpress.com and nellygolightly.wordpress.com – was a bit daunting so I’ve simplified a bit.  Copy and paste to all three.  Not exactly original but at least it might help with keeping them all updated.

Not sure whether I will add a blog to my business site http://virtualgirlfriday.net.au.  I probably should let it have its own blog but then again that may send me completely round the bend.  It might be better to point to one of the three I already have.

Decisions, decisions.

London Riots

I’ve been following the news of the London riots on various news sites – http://www.news.com.au/, http://www.abc.net.au/news/, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/ etc., and via my Twitter @puddymuddle.

This is the third day now and I’m still at a loss as to why London has erupted like this.  Yes, I know it supposedly all started out as a ‘peaceful’ protest after the police shot a man but hasn’t it all gone way too far?

From what I’ve read the rioting and looting has spread to other areas and the police have been struggling to get things under control.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all for people fighting for rights and wanting social change in countries where they are suffering under cruel despotic rulers.  But London?  This seems totally crazy to me and I’m struggling to understand why.

There was a recent tweet from @wikileaks with regard to a printed advice sheet for looters and rioters http://yfrog.com/z/h07mxcyzj.  There seems to be something rotten in the state of Denmark, or rather the city of London.  As far as I’m concerned that reeks of planning and organisation.

So who or what is behind it all and how far will it spread?  I guess time will tell.  I just hope it all settles down soon before too much damage is caused and too many lives are lost.

It’s Been A While

Yes, it certainly has been a while since my last post on this blog.  What’s been happening?  Well, quite a bit.

I decided to take a break from uni studies for a little while because I was working on TAFE business courses, working part-time and trying to find a second job because I didn’t have enough hours from my first job and studies to satisfy Centrelink.  It was crazy and getting a little bit tiring to say the least.

I’m now about halfway through TAFE Cert III in Business so there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  The appalling job situation here at Hervey Bay, and the struggle with trying to find a second job, led me to applying for the NEIS (New Enterprise Incentive Scheme) to help me to start a small business.  I now have a Cert. IV in Small Business Management but still don’t have the web site completed or the business up and running.  The business was supposed to officially start from 1 July 2011 but hasn’t really had a chance yet as I was sick with flu for most of July.  Them’s the breaks.  The business web site is http://virtualgirlfriday.net.au

Once again I feel like I’m trying to do to many things at once.
