“Don’t try to solve all the world’s problems. Choose your battles and fight them well. If you try to take on everything, you will succeed at nothing.” – Oliver Bancroft

I love this quote, and I’ll tell you why. As much as I enjoy showcasing my own ideas on this blog, I realise that there are some techniques I don’t know, and some projects I can’t always cater for.

This is where the idea of contributors comes in. Readers get to see a variety of ideas from a different person and perspective each month. It keeps topics on this blog diversified and fresh!
