The Art of Blogging

Time. We can spend it, but we can’t get more of it. Once spent, it’s gone forever.

Time. The most valuable commodity, and we never seem to have enough of it.

So… what if I were to tell you there’s a simple four step system that helps you write blog posts faster?

And no, I don’t mean 300 word posts, I mean longer articles that engage, inform, and entertain your readers.

Four simple steps.

For All Those Who Think They’re Stupid

Of Opinions

This is a manifesto/confession I wrote in my first year of college whilst studying English literature. My natural response when it comes to reading old diaries is to cringe, but I pretty much feel the same now, as I did then. I was reading The GoldenNotebook by Doris Lessing last night, where she writes,

Why is their interpretation of the word critic always to find fault?…That valuable person who understands what you are doing, what you are aiming for, and can give you advice and real criticism, is nearly always someone right outside the literary machine, even outside the university system; it may be a student just beginning, and still in love with literature, or perhaps it may be a thoughtful person who reads a great deal, following his own instinct.

For anyone who’s ever felt they’re not clever enough, whether they’re part of the system or not, everytime…

Sex Education – My Views

Opher's World

Sex Education

As someone who has taught sex education for 36 years to students age 11-18 I think I am a bit of an expert on this. I was also a member of the county PSHE Team (Personal, Social, Health Education) a big part of which was Sex Education.

I think all children should receive good sex education and that should be age appropriate.

In younger children of Primary School age this should be around life cycles of animals, relationships and changes that take place in the body.

In secondary school this progresses into the fundamentals of human reproduction and would cover topics such as menstruation, masturbation and relationships.

By fifteen such topics as contraception, STDs, sexting, respect, homosexuality, human sexuality, sexism, dealing with emotions, love, relationships, inappropriate sexuality, pornography, pregnancy and abortion would be appropriate.

17 and 18 year olds would have detailed discussions on such things as the…

Songs In The Plane.

And just behind what you can’t see now,

lies all the beauty you wished to see in your life .

( Coldplay sure livens up a dull flight. The breaktaking view helped, too. Sorry about no pictures. My phone isn’t capable of a worthy picture.)


When you move your feet you lose your seat. In reality, you don’t have to move your feet. A person can lose out by taking to long. Time and opportunities wait for no one. What you are hesitant about. Someone else is sure.

The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]

OK, I’m not ancient, but by adland standards, I’m practically a dinosaur.

I’ve talked about how stupid the industry is to look at people like that – but when someone old is ranting, it sounds much more like someone trying to keep his career going than something more objective.

Anyway, I’m going off on a tangent because what this post is actually about is an elderly lady – a truly elderly lady of about 75-80 years old – who I saw walk into Starbuck’s a few weeks ago.

Now I appreciate this may not sound interesting, but as you can tell from the picture above, she was wearing a bright pink beanie with the words ‘thug life’ on it.

I don’t know about you, but when I saw that, I knew there was only one thing I could do which was tell her she looks amazing, pay for her breakfast…

Legs are feeling heavy.

But I won’t stop.

I didn’t come all this way to stop.

And the heaviness goes away.

Its about time…

But it was a dream.

For now.
