Current Plans

To give you a flavour of the things I might delve into here, I thought I should list some of the projects and activities in my head.

Redcar.Life - I've moved to the North East of England, to a seaside town called Redcar. Before we moved, I ran a large Facebook Community group called Feltham Community and was able to be of assistance to many in that area with local information, help, advice and updates about events and local activities. It grew to over 20k people over 7 or 8 years. It took over a considerable part of my life, mainly for the better, but it also had some negative sides. I've started the Redcar.Life website to do something similar but probably on a smaller scale, and with the plan that it doesn't have such an impact on me personally. It will cover events, discussions, local activities and events, local jobs, and anything else I can sensibly add to the site.

Games42.uk - We've always had a few board games around the house, but since moving here, we've taken a new interest in them, and we now have over 250 games of one kind or another. I created the website to explore how many games are good for two players. So many profess to be for 2 but work much better (we presume) with more players. We generally only play together (my wife and I), so we can quickly judge those we think work well. So, the site is intended to document that progress into exploration of the games. It's not really started yet; the scale of the number of games has presented a challenge, and I might even swap to BlogHunch for that site, too, to see if it makes life easier to progress the site.

MikeF.uk - I've created this site to "promote" my kills to the local community. I can provide cheap/free web hosting for local non-profits or community groups, thanks to my hosting deal with Brixly.uk, and I plan to offer to design sites, photography, graphics and anything else I am capable of to anyone locally who needs it. I'm expecting that to take off slowly. I've got some Helpdesk software set up to manage those enquiries using DoneDone.com, and I am working on some documentation using the knowledge-base software provided by Eniston.com.

I think those are the major highlights at this point, but there are always other things floating around, and I'll find ways to update about these as time moves forward. Let's hope these are the first and last posts about these things.
