Time management and this blog

So I’m normally pretty good at time management. I even teach others how to time manage. So why do i never get time to write on this blog.

There’s lots of little excuses but there’s one really good reason – and that is I haven’t prioritised writing on here.

So that is going to change. Starting now.

I know there are lots or people reading this website – thousands in fact every day. Some of you come for the Microsoft Excel tips – ok lets face it most of you do. Some others come because you know me and are friends and family and want to see what I am up to. Others come for my photography. And others come for some random weird internet searches.

So today is a personal update. I will be looking to write and post Excel tips (and other office tips) as regularly as possible – in fact I’m prioritising it in my diary right now. Thanks be to Outlook.

And here is a picture of me working hard.

The HTC Gravy Train I Mean Tour

What a fortnight! I have spent most of the last 2 weeks overseas, largely in France, for the last week of the Tour de France, courtesy of the phone company HTC.

2011-07-22 Col de Galibier 032And what a jam packed tour it was. I was required to write a blog post everyday - and I think I succeeded. some days were just so jam packed I fell asleep at the PC at night, or got up stupidly early to edit photos and write an article. Not only was I there to see the tour but I also had the chance to ride thanks to BikeStyle Tours. I was riding a Cannondale Synapse bike and man it was fun. So many times I pinched myself to see if I was dreaming as I rode down and then back up the Col de Manse (including crossing Lance Armstrong's legendary wheat field), riding up the Alpe d'Huez on the morning of the day the race finished there and part of the time trial course in Grenoble.

Then of course there were the other opportunities, I was able to go to the HTC Highroad team bus and meet and hang out with Mark Cavendish, Danny Pate, Matt Goss. Lars Bak, Bernie Eisel and Mark Renshaw.

I also spent the last day in Paris on the Champs Elysee in a hospitality marquee with road side seating 220 metres from the finish line. Wow - that was a fast last 8 laps!

I was given the trip by HTC because I fit the following criteria, loved HTC phones (we have 5), heavily into social media, and into cycling and the tour specifically. This blog of course shows all three clearly as I have written about my numerous HTC phones, cycling and social media a lot. My Tour de France Diaries blog for HTC can be seen publicly on Facebook.
