A New Year Is Just Around The Corner...

A new year is just around the corner and it is that time of year to reflect on the past 12 months and look forward to new challenges and changes. The past year has been eventful and all in all I have enjoyed most of the year as I have accomplished quite a lot of projects and been involved in some interesting situations.

I have not been able to complete everything I set out to do this year but have managed to get most of my goals for the year completed, I have revamped the blogging network a few times over the past year and found it has grown really well with more readers than ever before and it is still hard to believe well over 25000 people have viewed this blog.

My new digital journey of using Instagram has been great with plenty of likes and few comments from some really creative people, from the responses of the people on Instagram I have seen a surge in viewers regarding my Rome content from 2011  and had some great response to my travel pictures, I will be posting more photos each day or so from now on so if you want to see them be sure to follow my Instagram account. kvlog101 instagram

Christmas was very enjoyable catching up with all the family and a few mates I have not seen seen in a while, I didn't snow this year and most of December has had some great weather and it has only started to turn colder over the past few days with a couple of days of ice and frost but  hopefully it will not turn as bad as last year... Snow can be nice but not when it turns the streets in to a car park its no fun...

This new year should see more content on the blogs and I am hoping to do some bigger and better projects over the year that will all be documented on the blogs each month or so. I have decided against making any new years resolutions as they will only get cast aside halfway though the year but I already have an idea of my schedule for this next year regarding my blog and my photography projects.

The games blog will make a comeback in the spring with some more indie games content and more news related content. So be sure to keep up with the blog if you liked my old  indie games articles and reviews and the main content on this blog.

There are going to be few changes over the next couple of months with different things that are happening at the moment, but it should not effect much of the blogging content so be sure to keep following my social media and this blog if you want to see what I am up to and all the latest news.

Thanks for reading and supporting the blog.

The Big Blog Update... Time, News, Games, Opera, Sales and More...

Time seems to have gone nowhere recently and in the the time that has past from posting on here last time I have been up to a few bits and just working from day to day. On several occasion i have told myself to post something on here but found no inspiration to just sit and write...

So lets start at the beginning shall we?

I have been posting loads of photos to my Instagram account and have had loads of great feedback from people and everyone seems to be liking the pictures from Rome that I took in 2011. I am going to be posting a few more Rome pictures then moving on to some of the London collection I have amassed over the years. Link to my Instgram can be found here: Instagram

Also in other news...

I have been building up a collection of better tools in the sales and designing several building projects that will be released throughout next year I am working on a project with my dad next year to build something rather special that will be documented on the Projects blog, I am also updating part of my desk with new extension that should be a big hit with the readers of my blogs ( Hint: think gaming desk and much more...)  Check out the site here for more information: KVL Projects

I am getting back to playing games... Again...

The games blog has be like a ghost town with not much activity apart form a tumble weed or two... But that is going to change soon as i have been planning to feature a mixture of games over the coming months and showcase some of my favourite games...

Night Out At the Opera...

At the end of November I was given an unexpected surprise when my parents got me tickets to a concert to go see Andrea Bocelli at the Birmingham LG Arena and the other great thing about this concert was the fact Lindsey Stirling was due to performing as a supporting artist... ( her new album is playing the background as I write this... Check it out on amazon here: http://amzn.to/1vaGthe) The show was amazing and just fantastic to see, the sound was great and he performed perfectly on all his songs and in my opinion is still one of the best classical singers and performers. Sadly Lindsey Stirling was not performing that night and though it was a little disappointing not to see her perform "Take Flight" off the new album the show was great and very entertaining and Lucy Kay who was a supporting act was amazing and here voice complimented Andrea Bocelli perfectly. All in all a great show and a great night out.


Black Friday Sales...

I got some great deals on the sales during the week and and will be writing up some reviews on these items in the near future.

Other Stuff...

I was also in Scotland since posting my last blog post and had good break away from it all, Plenty of walking and relaxing by the log burning stove on the night time, perfect break away from the everyday life, I am at the happiest I have been in a long time and looking forward to the future... Everything seems to be on the up and I have passed over 25000 page views on this blog. There is plenty of content on its way to all the blogs soon and I am loving Instagram and will be posting on there at least once a day...
