The marketing team said they wanted me to blog, so I’ll blog.
I’m surprised I’ve not done this before, those who know me will also know that I never shut up with my views on the cybersecurity world’s crazier goings-on, with stories from my past about people I’ve met and things I’ve done, and my general observations on life.
But this medium is still new to me, so I did my research. What exactly is a blog?
· Noun – a regularly updated website or web page, typically one run by an individual or small group, that is written in an informal or conversational style. A discussion or informational website … consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries.
· Verb – to blog, to add new material to or regularly update a blog.
I can do that. I will. I hope you’ll follow my ramblings.
But what do others’ blogs look like? What do they talk about and what tone do they use? Why do they do it and how? There are no answers to these questions that matter a jot, blogs all so different and done for so many different reasons. How about I do it just ‘cos I want to and I’ll write as I speak? I’ll do it till I get bored or you do.
This sounds fun. Watch this space.

Thank you for reading my blogs. I’m getting quite old now, and hopefully I’m a little wiser than I once was. I have enjoyed a fascinating career full of fascinating people, and made many great friendships. I’ve made huge errors in my lifetime, and enjoyed great success too – it’s been the ultimate game of snakes and ladders - up and down, round and round. It is my privilege to share some of my stories with you, and describe some of the lessons I’ve learned in the hope that it may both save you from falling into the same holes, and help you in your careers and lives. Good luck and good fortune.
