Of course I like ham…by Mitch on 13/10/2004
I received an email late last night from someone who reads my weblog. They have never commented, but they tell me that they read it all the time and had a suggestion.
“every entry talks about updates to your site wyh don’t u try and talk about u sometimes and not just ur site i wanna hear about you!!!1”
Bad grammar and spelling aside, they are right. I talk about my site because it’s my biggest hobby, so that won’t change, but I haven’t written a Mitch update in a long time, so here goes.
I’ve been applying for a few jobs around Dubbo and Sydney, basically because I think the whole starving artist / struggling designer / living at home thing is getting a little old and it’s time for new things in my life. I’ve applied for one job in particular that looks really promising, so if you could spare a few thoughts for me and send some positive mojo my way, it would be really appreciated. In fact, all the mojo you can spare over the next few weeks would be good, it is time for a lot of changes in my life and it’s not going to come easily.
Cash is a little short lately and I really feel like a major drain on my family. That is another reason I’ve been looking for work, that and I’ve been having trouble getting hold of clients who will stay interested. I’ve considered starting a more formal front for my web design rather than just being a freelance designer, but unfortunately that sort of thing costs money and without a bit better setup it would be hard. I am going to speak to some business analysts on Monday to go through a few options before me, but in honesty I don’t expect much to come out of it.
