Welcome to A Zillion Ideas!
I’m Mike Maynard and I’m a community blogger and photographer. I’m also the founder and editor of this site. I live in Wednesbury in the Black Country.
The blog posts on this site are published nearly every day and include posts on photography, writing, saving money and finance. On a Sunday, I put my thoughts into words and just ramble, often with some humour.
I take photographs around Wednesbury and the local area. I’ve done other things in the past few years such as helping students with the writing part of their studies.
This year I’m trying to get more involved in the local community and photograph local events, especially charity and community events. I enjoy photographing the local carnival and I hope to photograph a brass band that is coming to play in Brunswick park; our local Victorian park.
I’m also an admin of the History of Wednesbury page on Facebook, which is very popular. I have a Facebook page for a Zillion Ideas too. I am developing the ideas for that page and it’s slowly becoming more popular. You can see my photos on my Facebook page as well as experience an eclectic mix of art and music.
I also welcome enquiries from local people about my writing and photography and will often attend community events and take photographs. Some of the posts on this site are also featured in the regional newspaper that covers the Black Country. You can check out my page on the Express and Star too.
I am making the posts more about Wednesbury and the Black Country to more effectively serve my local readers, but will still write posts of general interest. If you would like to write for A Zillion Ideas then just send me an email the address is in the sidebar. You can also follow me on Twitter.
