Merry Christmas to one and all

I just wanted to say a quick Merry Christmas to all my friends and followers wherever you are in the world.

I started this portfolio in July to display some of my publishings. To be honest with you, I wasn’t even going to blog on here, but as a writer it’s extremely important to do two things; read a lot, and write a lot. In many ways, I’ve used this blog as an outlet, a whetstone, a place to sharpen my skills. Also, I hope I’ve given some good advice along the way too!

Even though a blog is very personal, the only person I’ve ever written for is you. When you sit down to write, there is only one important person in your life. That’s someone you will never meet, called a reader. The most important thing for me when writing is to make somebody read; that’s invariably you.

Everything I’ve published since July has been very varied, from the topical of uncovering the sex trade industry in Southeast Asia, to the factual of how to meet people while travelling. Also, as an avid travel photography, I’ve published a few photo essays too.

2013 has been a great year for me. However, I’m even more excited about 2014. If everything goes to plan, I should have my next major project launching in January or Febuary – so watch this space for more information on that soon – and I should be travelling a lot more too. That’s if everything goes to plan!

Until then, thank you for reading and following my writings. I hope you’ve enjoyed it so far, because there’s a lot more to come!

In the meantime, eat, drink, and be merry. I hope you have an amazing time with your friends and loved ones. Feliz Navidad…
