Today I discovered that somehow I created a Twitter moment back in December 2016. But I like how it’s turned out.
Three important lessons I have learnt in life:
1. Some negative opinions are from people with no self confidence. Some are from people with no imagination. If you have self confidence and can imagine, then their opinions don’t matter.
2. Most negative opinions are from people who cannot imagine you succeeding. That’s their problem, not yours. Stay focused on your success.
3. Don’t let the negative opinions of others inpact on your projects / wants / future – unless they can put up valid reasoning, and practical solutions, or sensible amendments.
Note: There was a numbering error. Odd for so little, but originally it was a longer list. But I condensed to remove duplications.

An entrepreneur worth following, reading, watching, and listening to all that he creates:
Daily, Gary puts out 20 tweets, five or six insta’s, blog posts everywhere, three videos on YouTube and a few more on Facebook, and is ubiquitous on Snapchat
Wow. Other than Snapchat, Gary is the standard to base one’s online life upon.
Not all are online, not all can be done in Australia, but very many of these 101 ways to make a few extra dollars each month can be achieved by any one of us.
I’ve now got an idea to combine a few of them into one package!
1. Some negative opinions are from people with no self confidence.
Some are from people with no imagination.
If you have self confidence and can imagine, then their opinions don’t matter.
2. Most negative opinions are from people who cannot imagine you succeeding.
That is their problem, not yours.
Stay focused on your success.
3. Don’t let the negative opinions of others inpact on your projects / wants / future.
Unless they can put up valid reasoning, and practical solutions or amendments.
If this looks familiar, I posted it just five minutes prior on my LinkedIn page.
We all know that coffee and chocolate are important food groups. Either together or seperately, they help us to feel good throughout the day.
Today I have collated twenty four ways you can wear coffee. That’s right, wear it. Okay, they are from my tshirt gallery.
Below are many designs I have created over the last few years. Each of them has coffee on them in some way. Expect more. Enjoy them all!
Liked them? Buy them easily and quickly via Redbubble and have them delivered anywhere around the world. Xmas is only a few sleeps away!
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.
