+Gordon Roberts is a user / profile specifically set up to spam blogs. I have reported it perhaps 30 times or more, every time it spams my blogs. How can I put a stop to its activities? A simple check will prove my claims, yet nothing is done about it.

It's very clear he/it has violated policies but no action has been taken.

How many times do I have to report a Google plus account that is not a real person and is used only to spam blog posts before it is removed? So far I have reported it for spamming my comments around 30 times.

Hi +Mark Highton Ridley Google would never reveal those numbers, I suspect they have systems in place to prevent the reporting system from being abused.

One of the free-running ponies on Dartmoor. This must be quite an old (heavily pregnant) mare because ear-docking has been outlawed on Dartmoor for many years.

One of my much-loved black and white rose shots, presented as a gallery-style print. You can almost feel that "satin" against your skin.

Zazzlers rejoice!
I've just uploaded a new version of ZazMySite (generates complete website pages or just the product grids for blogs) that includes two new features:
1) There's now a page-specific exclusion list. This is useful when generating multiple pages at the same time and the master exclusion list is too coarse.
2) There's a new option for searching only in the product titles.
These are to defeat the tag spammers and description stuffers.
Try it here: http://www.kdl.to/zazzlemysite/zazzlemysite-trial.html

One of my occasional colour shots, taken at one of the gateways to Dartmoor. Spitchwick is a magical place with free-running Dartmoor Ponies, cattle and more.

It's not often I share my work on G+ as it's so easily swamped by so much better (judging by their popularity).
Even so, here is one of my all-time favourites, recently collected from a 3-year loan to a prominent local business.

Story
Tagline
Photographer and Business Analyst - Curiosity killed the cat....
Introduction
Black and white photography is my passion but with everyone now being a photographer, I've hung up my camera for anything but purely personal gratification. I've had work published in Photo magazines and the BBC has frequently shown my work, commissioning a photo essay from me for the relaunch of their Devon website.

My day job for 8 months of each year is as a freelance business analyst. The limited company, Crocus Information Ltd, is the vehicle behind my various revenue streams.

Like many, I've focused on an online income and I run a successful Zazzle store at zazzle.com/HightonRidley To help me with promoting I developed some automation tools. They worked so well, that I also sell them on ZapMeCash.com where I also have details of my affiliate program.

I use the automation tools on a few of my blogs, including CoordinatedWeddings, PillowsULike, WatchesULike and BagsULike and these are good examples of what can be achieved.
Bragging rights
Commissioned By BBC for relaunch of Devon site - Banksy was chosen for the Bristol one! Merged the payment processing organisations of the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise when they became one: HMRC. The integrity of the entire UK's cash flow was in my hands. All went smoothly!
