Hello and welcome to sayzey.co.uk, if you are reading this, the chances are you’re curious as to why I have started my own website. For the benefit of those who don’t know me here’s a little bit of background information.
Who am I?
My name is Mark Say and I am a twenty something man from the North East of England. I’m an excited father-to-be with a baby due in May 2012. I am very active with a charity named Whiteknights EVS, who are an emergency motorcycle charity who deliver items out of hours on behalf of the NHS in Cleveland. Items such as blood tests, samples, equipment and anything small enough to fit in a motorcycle pannier. You can read more about the charity at their website www.bloodrun.co.uk. I will also be writing a profile on the charity in a further post on this website
I used to enjoy staying active, two years ago I was pretty fit, I ran the London Marathon, well I say ran, it took me five hours to finish. In the past year I’ve piled on a bit of weight and so I would like to get healthy again, I plan to do this by putting myself through a series of physical challenges and raise money for charity along the way. I plan on completing, along with a friend, 12 Challenges in 2012.
What’s this website for?
I want to learn more about website creation and “blogging”. I am responsible for the Bloodrun charity website and would like to experiment with different things in order to make the website more successful, however naturally I don’t want to conduct my experiments on the charity website, because if I was to mess up, there would be over two years worth of hard work down the drain. Sayzey.co.uk will enable me to practice without fear of bringing the charities online presence crashing down.
I plan to post on this website as and when I can be bothered, with the idea being at the beginning the website will look like every other half-assed, unfinished website and I will build on it over time making it look better and adding more content.
Occasionally I may write posts which I actually want people to read and give me feedback on, for example I might write a review of a book I have just read or a film I have watched. This is because I want to improve my writing, and the only way to improve is to practice! So feel free to leave me a comment correcting my typos, or slating my grammer or spelling. (See what I did there?)
I also want to chronicle my efforts in training and completing the twelve challenges this year and share any interesting articles I come across online.
