So I decided to cut off my hair for charity

Hey all,

The deed is done!

On the 10th December 2016 I had my hair cut for charity:

After years of procrastination and persuasion, I finally decided to cut my hair off for charity!

I last went to the barbers when I was fifteen (so about 10 years ago then!) and it feels a bit bizarre but I’m so pleased with the way it turned out.

Christmas tree card 2015

Hey, hope you like my sparkly Christmas tree card.

The idea for the design all started when I was struggling to find inspiration for my Christmas card design.

The first thing you notice is the amount of other people doing the same thing.

I completed the 56 mile ‘viking bike ride’ (now affectionately known as ‘The Long Slog’), in 7 hours and 50 minutes or thereabouts. To be honest I only looked at the clock three times throughout.

My name is Dan Johnson


Lets start with a question. Have you ever wanted your own website?

Most people say yes. OK, so have you ever wanted your own website called your own name?

Most people say yes. Some people actually have their own website with their own name and very nice it is too thank you very much. But what if someone else with the same name as you has already got their own website, what happens then?
