Let’s call this outfit of the day, “agency casual”. I have been working in the digital design field for about 10 years and if I had to choose an office uniform to define how I have dressed over that time, this would be it.
The accessories get updated every now and then but the core of it – the client-facing blazer with a nice top and jeans – always remains the same.
You’d think I would be absolutely sick of this look by now but if ever there were a clothes comfort zone this would be it!

While we are on the work theme, I often get asked whether I am a full time blogger – or whether I would like to be. Although the thought is sometimes very appealing the answer to both questions is a no.
I think there is something nice about reserving blogging as a creative outlet and a hobby – an adjunct to something else that’s going on in life. It feels good/healthy to have that other dimension.
Much of my point of view probably stems from my age. I am not quite pension-collecting but the older I get the more I worry about sustaining my future. In this respect I always wonder about the full-timers. As cool as their lives seem I can’t imagine the anxiety levels associated with the reality that income is dependent on popularity. I should probably wise up in this regard though - I know that most of them are laughing all the way to the bank while I slave over a poxy PowerPoint presentation for pittance!
What do you think about blogging full-time?
