When I first started blogging I had no idea where the future would take my scribblings. I readily admit that blogging was purely an escape from the realities around me.
Since then the articles have evolved into articles about the work I enjoy: photography, art, the art of fatherhood, plus a myriad of random subjects. I really should narrow it down, but then I get ideas that I let flow. Like my last post, I never know where my mind takes an idea.
About two years ago I had a silly idea that I could monetise my blog. I watched many other bloggers add Google Adsense and tried to follow their example. It hasn’t worked yet. See, I have a particularly appearance that I would prefer they adhered to. But they don’t. They are ugly.
So I have finally gotten smart. With my graphic art skills honed over the last fifteen years, I only advertise my family products. All the adverts below are in the sidebar of both mine and the kid’s blog. So here’s hoping you click on the links, go check them out, and maybe buy a tshirt or framed work. A father can dream.

MY PHOTOS & TOG-SHIRTS
So now you know what I do in my spare time. And how I make a little money from my blog.
FYI: I created all the graphics for these adverts. Some need more work or complete revitalisation. That’s the fun of this game – I can do that. I enjoy it.
