Have you ever seen the film Good morning Vietnam? There’s the bit where Robin Williams sits in front of the microphone and it looks as if he is going to freeze. Obviously he doesn’t but I am feeling a little bit like the character in the film must have felt.
I’m sitting here in front of my keyboard typing but at the same time thinking, will anybody read what I have to say? Well I suppose that only time will tell and there’s only one way to find out.
Everything I’ve read about blogging says that it’s important to write about something that is a passion in your life. For me it’s either, family, scuba diving or helping people with skin problems.
I’m sure my children and wider family wouldn’t mind the odd post now and then about them but I feel sure that it wouldn’t be interesting enough to fill a blog.
I know a fair bit about scuba diving but there are thousands of other people who know more about scuba activities than me and my diving is rather tame compared to some of the exploits I have already read about. So I guess that’s out.
Last, but definitely not least, is – helping people with skin problems. Do I know a fair bit about the subject? Sure do! Am I passionate about it? Certainly am – in fact almost obsessive. Have I got time to do it? Ah… now there’s the real issue! Again there is only one way to find out and that is to get stuck in and see what happens.
One thing I do know for sure is that I will have quite a bit to write about. Every week we get letters from customers telling us about their skin problems. It can be anything from dermatitis caused at work to plain and simple dry cracked skin. Whatever the skin problem might be I hope to offer some practical and common sense advice.
Hopefully I will also be able to ad something for those of us concerned with occupational skin safety. Sometimes it’s difficult to find answers to occupational skincare concerns like contact dermatitis and I hope to help in a small way.
Here goes. I hope I can help in some way.
