BABB break time

Hello all. I know we were just getting some momentum, but the Building a Better Bloke blog will be taking a break over Christmas and into January, while I recharge the batteries.

Gentleman and ladies, consider this Sam de Brito’s home away from the All Men Are Liars beach house. Yes, the decor is a little lame, but if the traffic warrants it, I will renovate and put in some personal touches. Up to you.

This is a place for discussion of many issues and it’s my intention that mine will not be the only voice heard here. If you have something to say, send me a submission to

If they’re shit, plagarised, poorly spelled, lame, regurgitated or repetitive, they won’t get run. I will not be paying for these posts, but hopefully, they will give you a chance to expose your work to an audience larger than you’d encounter otherwise.

Here we go.
