It’s kind of my mid years resolution to start writing a blog.  I spend a lot of time surfing the internet, using different operating systems and software, researching new technology (well new to me anyway) and generally looking for useful snippets that will aid me in my various interests.  A year ago I started a small web design and graphic design studio, with the aim of providing a low cost solution for small businesses and organisations to express themselves and advertise via the internet.  I have had a steady stream of contracts ranging from web design and web hosting, graphic design, photography and PC support contracts.  Yet I have also put in a lot of hard work into getting everything up and running, and with a small budget I have had to be resourceful with the hardware and software that I have purchased and implemented, made some good choices and some not so good choices, and perhaps in hindsight would have done somethings slightly different.

I thought that it would be nice to share my experiences to others who may be going down the same path, and henceforth start blogging about my experiences (and frustrations).
