Morning. I hadn't planned to write this post - it wasn't scheduled or anything like that but I decided that something needed to be said. Over the past few days, I've had a couple of rather unpleasant comments on here. I won't dwell on them but the first one was a little cheeky. The second was downright mean and nasty. Now, I'm all for constructive criticism and I work constantly to improve the quality of what's on the blog, with regular features etc. And even invested in (read: was gifted with) a new camera. So, you have to understand that the blog is a work in progress. Also, might I add, a hobby. I work full time. One comment asked me my 'credentials'. My job is in Marketing, within the internet development team of a top UK jeweller. I don't need credentials to write a blog. Being a blogger is about having an interest in something. It's also about being brave enough to put yourself out there and I will always expect comments from people.
