My name is Brian, I’m 30+ years old and this is my blog. It began as a website back in 1998 when I was at college studying IT and Graphic Design. It was originally called BMH Online and it quickly developed into a hobby that became a kind of log of my other interests and a place where I could rant about random topics.
I live on Anglesey in the UK and following on from my interests during my education I’m a self-employed computer technician, occasionally tinkering with websites for clients too, and I cycle all over the island in north Wales as part of my work.
The list of Categories over to the right (down below the list of Recent Posts) outlines the topics covered in this blog so far. In a nutshell, these are my interests. If you see something interesting then delve in and take a look!
Hobbies and interests can change over time and my recent blog posts, compared to my older ones (if I haven’t deleted them already), reflect this. In fact, as I began focusing on writing for my blog I realised writing was becoming a new hobby in itself. Sometimes my writing takes on a reflective or philosophical approach, and I talk about both mental and physical health and fitness at times, and bring together my views on living greener. I also enjoy how I find others with similar interest and stories to share when I publish a new post.
I also use my blog to highlight issues with websites, software, or services I use, and I sometimes put together information that I hope will help others. I am a keen participant in SETI@home (since 1999) so I use my blog to document my progress and experiences there as I occasionally build, upgrade, and repair computers over time.
A few years ago I started taking a bit more time over the photographs I was taking and some of those pictures find their way here to compliment my articles. You can find more of my photographs at deviantART: http://bmhonline.deviantart.com
If you need any more reasons to follow my blog then here is a fitting endorsement from another blogger:
Brian’s Blog, a philosophical take on anything and everything contradictory in the world, always makes me think. The writer strives for a green and thoughtful life by cycling and recycling, and minimising present-day irrationalities. The diversity of the blog makes it difficult to pick specific pieces, but two recent ones that come to mind are on micro-beads and the idiocy of GDPR cookies. – Tasker Dunham’s Yorkshire Memories
