    To be honest, I wasn’t really familiar with blog carnivals. It’s a great idea. A genuine thank you for including me in this and an even bigger thanks for using my picture on your homepage!

    I’m going to start reading all the stories right now :-)

      A genuine welcome to you too Bram (and Aleah and Regin)! Thanks for your photo. I didn’t even ask for your permission but I’ve credited it anyway ;D


      • Bram October 8, 2012 at 2:03 AM #

        Haha no worries. I consider it a big compliment!

        • DJ Yabis October 8, 2012 at 3:00 AM #

          I do like it a lot ;D How are you coping with being tied to a job? It’s a pretty difficult transition I guess.

          • Bram October 8, 2012 at 7:13 AM #

            It’s not a permanent job though, but money has to come from somewhere, right. And yeah, it is hard to cope with; I really don’t have time to do anything anymore… Luckily there always are new ideas in the back of my mind, so pretty soon I probably will be going somewhere again!

            • DJ Yabis October 9, 2012 at 3:09 PM #

              Yep of course. I totally understand what you mean ;D
