About

About me?

You’ll be lucky matey.

MeThis is an eclectic semi personal blog space that is free from advertising and draws together some of my interests and passions. I blog elsewhere for myself and others. Anyway, the sketchy details are that I’m a mature (don’t ask) fem-Brit Nrrd Grrl living in the UK with my Australian partner. I’m a Cancerian (is that a blessing or a curse?) and am into artistic things (suitably vague eh), recycling (the earth is worth saving, not so sure about the people)musical dabblings, some technology musings and guidance and virtual assisting and freelance writing.

My interests are eclectic but are likely to include cooking, tech, musings and a growing audio tape archive.

Another advert free blog?

There’s no 3rd party advertising here other than linking to things I believe in or have contributed to or am involved in and nobody pays me for any product placement.That’s just my policy for this blog (and the restrictions of wordpress.com). Each to their own but I’d rather try to make a living out of side projects than from blogging per se. I do accept small donations to help pay for bandwidth etc. Otherwise it’s a labour of love.

Comments

I encourage comments and allow anonymous commenting but I tend to edit out spam and blatant attempts to just push your own website (can you try for once to just not be so shallow) and I reserve the right to remove comments that I see as merely an attempt to drive traffic to your commercial concern. I’m also happy to receive correspondence outside of the blog. Whilst I’m all for free speech I reserve the right to remove abusive comments and/or censor some words as I see fit.

Disclosure

  • No 3rd party advertising
  • No viral marketing or viral links/tags
  • No paid for product placement
  • No link exchanges with blogs I don’t read
  • Minimal participation in memes, memetags and the like (sorry)

Stuff? What Stuff?

This varied blog contains personal thoughts, observations, video and audio. It represents the things I’m interested in and care about. I hope it ranges somewhere between an electronic scrapbook, notebook, record , bookmark and magazine and hope to integrate the technologies I enjoy using. I’m always open to suggestions (indeed I added a rich media and podcast feed after it was suggested to me) and welcome contributions.

  1. Hi There!

    My apologies for the cheeky posting here but it is all in the name of a brilliant charity.

    This September myself and my boyfriend will be trekking around India to help raise funds for Maggie’s Centres for Cancer Care. Maggie’s (reg charity SCO24414) are an amazing group who provide free support, care and advice for anyone who has been affected by cancer in their lifetimes. They offer an extremely valuable service to anyone who needs their assistance and are extremely deserving of our support and the support of everyone out there!

    The reason I am posting here is because one of the ways we are fundraising is through the auction of signed memorabilia donated by celebs and public figures around the world and we are currently auctioning a signed artwork from Sir Jimmy Saville
    We do of course also have loads of other signed items up for grabs and with fundraising beginning in earnest towards our £7000 target your support in looking at these items would be much appreciated.

    More info can be found at our website http://fundraisingformaggies.bravemusings.com where there is a link to our auctions in the header of the website. There is also a chance there to make donations to the cause through our just giving website. If you have any questions please do email us at robinnelsonmiller@gmail.com

    Many Thanks

  2. Hi weltkind-that’s very kind of you but as you can see from my po-faced ‘About’ page here I try to refrain from memes & associated linking. I know that sounds mean hearted but we each have our own peculiar foibles and self imposed rules so hope you will respect my decision on this. Best wishes with your blogging.

  3. Thank you so much for the Scott Walker interview. What a gem! Sounds like a BBC Radio 3 jobbie (the interviewer’s voice is somewhat familiar to me). Whoever he is, he is clearly highly musically literate, and Scott appears very relaxed – chuffed, even, to be in such company.

    • Hi
      Thanks. I think the interview must have been an offshoot of Mixing it which got axed around 2007 (then briefly moved to London’s experimental Resonance FM periodically as the programme ‘WTSiT’ which ceased to be in Nov ’08 with many promises to return) so the interviewer was probably either Robert Sandall or Mark Russell (also an accomplished composer).
      Glad you got some enjoyment from the archived interview.
