When is self promotion spam?

“Come and see my new products on my new website! ;)You know as soon as that pops up in front of you on your screen theprospect of having a tooth removed without pain relief is more tempting.This constant relentless blitzkrieg of drivel makes me want to surrender. Quite frankly if your modus operandiis purely to get noticed, because you think  you are interesting, you need to get a life! Put some of your energy into saving the planet (or a Panda) and not just your ego. Better still get out there and make real friends and become interesting.

This constant bombardment of self promotion from twitter, facebook etc. is driving me nuts. The Internet is a more sophisticated tool than this. It is a travesty to allow it to become a vehicle for pure unadulterated, egotistical spam.

I want paid holidays!

Below is a link to an article that explains how I feel about running my own small art business – what is the point?

Owning a small business requires a lot of faith and belief, you need to believe in your product (after all it is your baby). To simply survive you require enthusiasm, conviction and self belief. I have all this and much, much more…but it is so tiring!I’ve had enough! I want a job (maybe not a career) that provides a monthly salary, one that gives me a specific amount of cash flowing into my bank account every month. I want stability in my life and the support from a reliable, proven employer. I want them to pay my income tax and healthcare – I want paid holidays!
