The man I have to thank for inspiring me to create this blog is Steve Clayton - he is a Big Cheese at Microsoft, there's nothing he doesn't know about the web, and he is passionate about blogging as a way of getting your message out there. See his own blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/stevecla01/default.aspx.
I met Steve at the StartupsLive event in Bristol last week http://www.startupslive.co.uk/ - we were both speaking to an audience of about 150 entrepreneurs; it was a great event, the atmosphere was electric and I learnt a lot from my co-speakers.
First problem in creating my blog was finding someone else had taken my name on blogspot in October 2005 - clearly a disgruntled ex-Red Letter Days customer or supplier - I guess there was a lot of hate around at that time so it is only to be expected.
Next step in this process is to try to integrate this blog into my own website http://www.rachelelnaugh.com/ - watch this space !!!
