It’s been over two years since I posted a blog entry on here and for the bulk of that time the blog itself was taken down from the internet (yes I’m aware nothing really disappears).
I took it down back in 2011 as I engaged in a lengthy legal battle with my former partner over custody of and access to my son. Everything possible was being dragged up and thrown at me, in a spate of underhand and unnecessary tactics. It wasn’t a happy period of time – no two reasonable people should resort to what we both did. I won’t be dwelling too much on my little man, or my personal life, now the blog is back; but I thought I should explain why it went away.
Now I’m Back….
I should probably explain the inspiration for being back, seeing as I’ve explained the rationale for being away. It is, as described: Inspiration. I do some work with the Duracell bunny that is Warwick Tweetup, and his partner in crime Jo’s Correctional Facility – and the energy from both of them is contagious.
If you take that and combine it with the fact I feel I have something useful to add these days, and take inspiration in content form from some of the blogs I enjoy reading (particularly Maria Langer’s ‘An Eclectic Mind’ – a great mix of Aviation and real life from the USA!) – I wanted to get back on with blogging.
As you’d expect, an awful lot has changed in the intervening two years; including my life and my little bit of the world. I’m older, and hopefully a little wiser – I’m certainly a little more reflective before reacting to anything. One little snippet I learnt along the way:
“Will it matter in a year? If not, then it probably doesn’t matter now.”
With that mantra in mind, I intend to start blogging again probably on a more professional and business based basis than before; although still with a heavy hint of aviation!
For now I’ve just restored the old site, as was and upgraded WordPress – but over the next month or so I am going to tidy it up (looks and content), and ensure everything is linked properly to my social media bits and pieces, and then try and think of something interesting which you can all read!
It’s good to be back.
