You may have guessed I am Niftyknits' other half, and @Nifty_IT is my Twitter name. Since we moved to Kent in late 2005 I started a small IT business, providing computer help in all shapes and sizes to local schools, the charity sector, and individual home users, not to mention Heather's online knitting business! I did some work at the Citizens Advice Bureau in Ashford and they subsequently roped me in as a voluntary generalist advisor for half a day a week. Fascinating and rewarding but hard work.
Since meerkats took over the world, it's been quite a journey, and all this online communication is fairly new to me - I resisted the Twittersphere for some time, but was attracted via the tweetup lunches that started in a pub (a beer always helps!) by an enterprising tweeting landlord (@hoodenershorse) to attract some new Friday business.
It's great to see all the exposure that Heather has generated and we were hoping to see the party leaders on ITV Meridian news doing an alternative broadcast before election day.
