Just so you know, I started to write this post on the 15th June and have only just got round to publishing it, however, in that time some of the points I make have been verified in the national media. So at least now I know, it’s not just me 🙂
I’ll be the first to admit it, and I don’t mind who knows, I have an inherent distrust of Facebook. Don’t get me wrong I know and understand that some people use it for good means where keeping in contact is difficult, however, the impression I have of Facebook through the people I know who use it is that it’s something that’s just there to sap as many hours as possible achieving absolutely nothing.
I also know that the day is rapidly approaching where I’m going to have to join if only to get a greater social networking exposure.
While I was in the office today one of my colleagues asked if they could get hold of my book.
‘Sure’ I replied ‘It’s on Amazon. I write under the pen name of W.Chaser’
‘It’s £1.66. I’m not paying that, can I have a copy for free?’
Firstly an apology. I’ve been tied up with other things over the past weeks and haven’t responded to any comments, been reading any other blogs and even missed the second write campaign challenge. Stuff just gets in the way sometimes, unfortunately between major issues at one of our foreign offices and going away for a week everything has just got clogged up. So I’ll get round to all that over the next few days (and from my inbox I’ve got a lot of blog reading to do!).
If you’re interested in my writing posts then skip this one, if you want to read a rant then carry on!
I obviously have a keen interest in technology since I work with it every day and it never ceases to amaze me how different companies/groups make the same mistakes as others and never seem to learn from them. In this case I’m talking about book publishers eBooks and their insistence on going down the same route as Music and Movie studios.
