About the Author
Hi I'm Rick! Having a blog is something I always thought was for columnists, journalists or commentators and I certainly never imagined I'd have my own. After reading Auston Kleons "Show Your Work" I realized a blog isn't necessarily about wanting an audience, a voice, or influence, but is a chance to show people what you're passionate about. Putting your work on a site gives you a networking opportunity by allowing people with similar interests to follow, collaborate or critique your work. As a bonus, if you are producing useful content, hopefully you can help spread good ideas or resources. These are the reasons I have started The Banana Tree. I hope you enjoy this site!
