Hello world!

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

Well now. I quite like WordPress’ default title for new bloggers: “Hello world!” Think I will keep it.

Hello, world. I’m Marie Kreft, owner and copywriter at Good As Gold Writing Services Ltd, based in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. Feel free to rummage around my newly designed website (expertly crafted by Dan Mitchell) and see what Good As Gold does.

Thanks to an over-zealous entrepreneur I met last summer, who backstepped me into a corner in dogged pusuit of a sale (fire nozzles), I made three business resolutions: a) don’t bore people, b) don’t scare people and c) try to be interesting. So I’m not here to jabber on and on, but instead to bring you useful updates, worthwhile news … and pictures of the rather erotic Dual Gallonage Combo Nozzle 1-1/2″ NST GPM.
