My new business


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.

“Old” blogs on my reading list…


I like lists. I like making lists.

I like blogs. I like reading blogs.

And I wanted to start making a short list [purely for my own interest] of the blogs that I have regularly read over the past 12-36 months. I don’t always comment on all the blogposts that I read.

So, following, is a list of those blogsites that I regularly read, and to whom I am subscribed.

This is the first blog I subscribed to, and it is still one of my top 5 sites to read. Cobus doesn’t overflow you with posts. Whenever he post, it feels fresh and well-written. If you want Theology that (really!) meets real life, this is a must-follow blog.

I came across this blogsite about 6 months ago. Jory challanges readers to think again the way women should be treated in ministry. [I don’t know whether she will want to be seen as a feminist; I don’t really know when someone is a feminist, so I don’t want to label her one.]

I don’t know if this can be counted as a blog, but I count it as a blog. It is a great place to read analysis of, especially, South African news. It is in depth, and very well written. The amount of contributors is excellent. The views are well-balance (in my own opinion). Well worth the read.
