I started this blog back in January as part of an assignment for my Development Politics module. Although I had my own personal blog, it had been rather sporadic and hadn’t involved me applying my brain so much so it took me weeks to get used to blogging and working my brain so hard… But I think it did me good so I would like to continue in a similar vein.

So – the other blog is going to go as writing two blogs would be quite frankly, ridiculous, and this one is going to expand in its breadth instead. Development Politics is always going to be something that interests me. But there is more to development than just politics. And there is more to life than development.

There is a blogger called Owen Barder who is a development economist and blogs about development – but he has opened it up to his other interests…running, cycling, philosophy computers and current affairs amongst others.  So I’m going to be similarly self-indulgent and continue blogging – but extend it to my own interests! I find blogging quite cathartic so I’m going to indulge myself and have a ponder, doodling, some enthusing and maybe even the occasional rant about new and live music, issues relating to God and faith (or more particularly Christianity because I’m a Christian), gardening or current affairs. Whilst of course keeping an eye on the development world. If anything it will keep my parents up to date on what is going on in my life!
