Ah yes, my work. For many years I had been trying to make a living as a freelance designer. In the past four or five years or so, it became obvious I had been mistaken in trying to maintain the pretence. While casting around for other likely careers - though I had left it rather too late to make any sort of sensible career switch, and many prospective employers knew this - I found myself turning a hobby into a business.
Rather than poo-pooh the idea, I decided to roll with it. I am now a full-time professional modelmaker. I build scale models as commissions for clients. Without really trying too hard, I have a full order book for the rest of 2014, and I am making quotes for work to begin in 2015!
What this means for my online life varies. When at my workbench, I would prefer not to have distractions like social media. Then again, it's very handy to have the world wide web close at hand for research materials. I am trying to be more disciplined about it, so you might find I appear more often here again.
The thing is, G+ doesn't really fit the new career. My world here is much more phot orientated, and while I haven't been active this past few months, I have visited regularly to see what has been happening. As the new life settles, I hope I can begin to participate in some of the many groups I belong to.
Enough rambling. I have things to get on with!
