I keep on popping up in the strangest of places. I am Don Charisma from DonCharisma.org blog.
Opinionated man has asked me to do a few guest posts over the weekend, and I’ve graciously accepted the challenge.
Who the Funk is Don Charisma ?
A little about me, I’m from UK. I lived a long time in London and that’s more my home than anywhere else, although I live overseas now. It’s warm/hot here and the people smile more. I used to be a geek, University computer science graduate, worked in the city of London for a long time, banks and money, and state of the art toys to break, I mean play with. These days I’m more laid back, and interested in more creative pursuits – playing around with Photoshop, Illustrator and a little photography. I thoroughly enjoy doing blog articles on things like promoting blogs/websites, annoyances, bit of geeky stuff, how-tos for bloggers and like to mix it up so my readers never know what’s next in their inbox. That’s enough of me I’m sure.
What I know about Opinionated Man
When I first started blogging I didn’t understand the guy at all. I read some of his posts, and he seemed to be the least opinionated person I’d come across, more time sitting on the fence than anything else. He seemed more about writing short articles that caused other people to express their opinions. Now my brain works pretty slowly sometimes (well a lot of the time actually), but over the course of quite a few weeks, I started to see what OM does. He likes the community aspect, somewhere where people can come and express their opinions, in relative safety, OM’s there to moderate, and he’s a pretty decent cool guy by all accounts. So in effect he’s created a community here, which I think is great.
He asked me to contribute on Project-O and I declined. At the time I thought something like “Why the hell should I write his content for him”. It’s a decision I’ve since regretted, as I’ve come to know him better and understand what he does on this great blog of his.
Over the weekend
I don’t have a fixed schedule of what to write about. I will try to keep it short and sweet, for the sake of my time. However I do find it difficult to say anything worth saying in under 500 words. So it’ll be a different from what you’re used to, but hopefully in a good way.
I’ve been threatening a trip up on the hill to take photos of a huge gold Buddha, but it’s rained today, so I keep putting it off. Not sure with doing these extra blog articles if I’ll get time, but if I do I’ll share the photos.
If anyone has any suggestions for things they’d like me to write about, then let me know, I will do my best.
So there you have it, Mr Don Charisma on Harsh Reality blog !
Thanks OM, I hope I can give your readers an interesting read:)
