Stevesbucket has been a bit quiet of late (more like 7 months!) but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been collecting some goodies for you all to read…..I’m always adding things to my delicious bucket:

Twitter has also become an integrated part of my life, some of my friends still say that I tweet too much! But if you want to follow me and find out what I’m doing check out my feed @stevesbucket

So what have I been up to of late? What has happened to me over the last 7 months that means I have been too busy to blog?

Well life has changed a lot for me, after spending just over four years of my life based down in the beautiful South West of England I decided it was time for a bit of a change. I took the plunged and moved back to the South East and started working in London town.

I have to say, I’m loving being back up here! It’s great being back with old friends and family and exploring the delights of city life. I’ve also got a new job too, after a year of working for Twofour I have now moved into the agency world and am working for Digitial Outlook.

With this new chapter starting I’m going to try and post more things on here, so keep watching.


Apologies that there hasn’t been any new dose for the past week or so….

Your Dose will be taking a new form next week…so stay tuned to see the changes.

I’ve still been collecting great new links – these can be found on my delicious page.
