Updated June 2016: Sadly this promotion is now over, but MyBlogU is a great site to visit – and of course, I'd love you to read the rest of my post, or any of the related posts on the bottom.

Start A New Site And Double Your Money

Start A BlogNo, I haven't started promoting “Get Rich Quick” schemes. (If only there were such a thing… there isn't!)

This is just a reminder that 6th October 2015 is the last date to enter the MyBlogU Start a New Site contest where the winner (based on profit, traffic and subscribers) will get personal coaching to double their challenge results.

I wrote about this a little while ago and some readers started on it.

As we approach the deadline, remind yourself of this great opportunity to start that new site you've been meaning to start. Click here to learn more.

While others have been working hard, I have been on holiday 🙂

My Holiday20150909_085159

My journey started (after London) in Chicago, through Springfield IL, St Louis, Memphis and New Orleans then back home to London.

It was a wonderful holiday, packed with exciting venues – some that I knew nothing about before visiting, yet ended up totally fascinated: Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and I fulfilled a life-long ambition to visit Sun Studio and Graceland.

In Chicago I marveled at some breath-taking views from the 94th floor of the John Hancock Tower.

What a wonderful holiday.

It would have been nice to catch up with some of my great USA blogging friends – but my tour was action-packed with barely a break between meals, and that's quite a big country you've got there!

After The Holiday


I'd no sooner returned home than my two grand-daughters (aged 1 and 3) came to stay and – gorgeous as they are – they're real handfuls of fun and love. I don't see a lot of them so I really notice the change, and the new words and skills they've learned.

Here they are shopping with their Uncle Matt (my other son).

All this is just to explain why I haven't been terribly active on my blog of late – but that's the best perk of being self-employed. I work when I want to work, and I holiday / do family things when I want to.
