I own six suits

My first ever blog..... a bit of an introduction maybe?

I have six suits because until 2 months ago I worked for a bank and suits were the order of the day... every day. I was considered something of a maverick as I mostly eschewed ties but that aside I was a 'suit'.

Now I wear anything really, my wardrobe and my day are my own. At the bank I had a role... I could explain it but we'd both be very bored before I finished - although at one point I was a 'senior leader' but they had to cut the junket numbers and I had that title revoked...

Now I'm a Web Publisher apparently (that's what I told my new bank and they didn't so much as snigger) and I'm talking to the world on a blog. As I look from side to side I see web standards, accessibility and the brave new world of the new economy....

I like it. I like the people who build inaccessibility for others to make accessible and I like wearing shorts and flip flops to work. I love the idea of affiliate marketing and decent price comparison. I'm amazed by Google with their analytics, adwords and webmaster tools.... such wonderful accessibility to every sort of data except that which tells you how (what) Google themselves think.

I think I'm going to like it here amongst the techies. I hope Mooch can do all of the things we want it to because more than anything I hope to throw away my suits....

Here's hoping. Mark.


Welcome to the world of self-employment Mark, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

I look forward to seeing what comes of Mooch.

... and give those suits to charity :-P

Welcome to the lovely world of the web Mark.

Never been a better time to ditch the suit, though conversely starting to find myself needing to wear them more and more (you try finding a half-decent fit when you're 6'6" and 11 stone).

Look forward to seeing the Mooch brand grow and grow

Thanks Cole

I suspect that in most cases the donning of a suit is accompanied by some financial reward... and the donning of shorts and a t-shirt by some spiritual reward :)

Avoiding suit wearing is a much more enjoyable lifestyle! I've only got 1 and it's for special occasions :)

One sounds optimal to me :)
