The last time I posted something was way back in August. Not even the middle of August. I started a project to write more: “Blog a day August“. Who remembers that?
I wrote something every day during that month. I just never posted it. I might just post it in the future. But not as part of a “blog a day” idea.
Today is Monday. An ideal day to start new ideas, new projects, new thoughts.
I want to clean up my blog a little. Any ideas what I can do? I recently changed the lay-out. Anything else?
I also have an Afrikaans blog site. If you understand Afrikaans, check that out as well. If you do not mind. And look at the Afrikaans post that are related to this post.
Blog-a-day-June… Tuesday, 5 June
I am still working on my research essay. That is the only part of my studies that needs to be finished.
I am in Pretoria today, tomorrow and Thursday.
Tomorrow I will see my research leader (or whatever he is called), to get ideas and thoughts on how to finish the essay.
Today I had to get registered. After paying R7500 into my student account, I was late to the offices of the personnel with whom I had to find out about the process. So I will be doing that tomorrow as well.
Before going to Albert, who have a bed extra while I visit Pretoria, I went to Wimpy. I sat there, accessing internet to go through my e-mails and other internet-based sites.
I’m now typing from the room in which I will sleep tonight. It is always an honour to stay at Albert. People who say that a true friend are the one you don’t need to hear from daily, but when you seem him/her you can continue conversation as though you saw him/her yesterday, might be right.
Friday, 1 June
“I want to blog every day.” These are words I recently read on one of those “advertising pages” on Facebook where people share their blog posts and blog sites.
I also know it is something similar to what I say when I start to write again after a long absence from blogging. And normally those kinds of resolutions last for about two weeks, at most, before dying down again.
I don’t know how long it will last this time.
I want to try to write a post every day for the next 30 days. I want to call it my own “Blog-a-day-June”.
I already know what will happen. I will not post every day. I live on a small holding outside Rustenburg. I do not have wifi at home. I also do not get to connect to a wifi spot every day. So I will post the posts I write, maybe 3 on one day at some stages.
I know what else will happen. I don’t know if I will be able to write some awesome and new content on every day. So some posts might be a reflection on some news or sport story that happens, or I might write a post about a song I like (maybe even the words only).
But I am going to at least write one post every day… And post most of them onto my blogsites.

So I have done it. I started a new business. A printing business. I called it FdL Printing.
And I think I started it at possibly the worst time ever. On every single talk show about money or (small) business, people talk about how financially tough the world has gotten. How extremely tough it is to start a new business. And I did it to myself.
So, here I am, with a new “baby”. I don’t have the faintest of ideas how to build it further.
I know to advertise it. I post regularly on Facebook – both my personal profile and my business’ page.At this stage, I only do printings on mugs. I am also doing business cards, even though that is not my main focus. I am also available to do photoshoots.
So, if you have any questions, visit my Facebook page. I will also start building the blog page soon. Email FdL.Printing2016@gmail.com, or phone me (that is Freddie) at 0715427026.
Please note that I operate from Rustenburg, North West province, South Africa.
I started blogging a few years ago. I started this blogging thing, “because everyone was doing it”. It also sounded like a nice and fun way to share thoughts and feelings and what I have learned with people.
Sometimes I blogged in Afrikaanse and translated the same post in English. Other times I blogged in English and translated it in Afrikaans. When I look back, I realize that it must look very congested and full. I started a new blog, in Afrikaanse. In this new blog, I will be posting what I want to post in Afrikaans. I will still translate posts, but I will post it on two different blogs from now on.
I hope that this new way of blogging will help me to “blog better” and more regularly as well.
Let’s see how it goes…
While I am writing about new blogs. I also started this new blog, where I will place some of my favourite photos/pictures every now and then. I hope you like it as I alsoe like it.
Come and have a coffee with me.
