Flies when you’re having fun.
How are you all doing?
I hope you are all keeping well, staying safe, and, at most, making sure loved ones are also well and safe?
Family and health are so important at the best of times, but more so now, aren’t they!?
You may want to know why I’m writing this, don’t you?
There are three reasons:
Firstly, I want to just check-in and see how you’re all doing.
Say a heartfelt thank you for your support and…
It’s coming up to a milestone in the brief history of SnookerZone’s existence as it will be in a couple of month’s time, 2 years since this website came into operation.
And since most of the country is in lockdown and grappling with a pandemic. It’s a great time for us all to reflect, to ponder, to figure out certain things, not just in business, but in our personal lives.
It’s time for us all to change for the better.
One thing that I’m sure you have established during this lockdown, and I’m sure that you already knew it, but it just needed something like this to remind you, is, how important our health is, both individually and as a nation.
Our health is our wealth, but it’s also not only just our physical health that is important to look after, but it’s also our mental health.
Since snooker clubs have been closed because of the pandemic, people have had to look for other ways to keep themselves occupied, either by continuing to practice at home using innovative ways to keep that cue arm going.
But the lockdown has also taught us just how important “physical” activity is for us ALL.
SnookerZone has been cycling a lot more since the shutdown and has lost a stone in weight. I’m not saying this to brag, but to make a point that anything in life can be achieved, if there is a bit of will power, fight, and perseverance.
Baby steps lead to bigger results.
In the fable of the tortoise and the hare, it’s the steady and careful steps of the Tortoise that win the day, rather than the rushed and cheating ways of the hare who thinks racing away and cheating will get him there quicker.
How wrong he was.
What’s this got to do with the price of fish, you may ask.
Well, a lot.
Working on SnookerZone has been a hard slog. It’s not easy running a website single-handedly.
There’s not only writing and producing content. There’s also:
- Making sure it’s technically running smoothly
- Making sure the content is optimized for Search engines
- Making sure there’s the promotion of content
- Making sure there’s updated content regularly.
- And a lot more besides…
We’re taking baby steps all the time, but we’re getting there, and it’s worth it!
With our slow, but careful and measured steps, we will get there.
So, what’s the point of this message?
As the founder of the site, I just want to say a major thank you to those who are regularly coming to read either the reviews, the coaching interviews, the articles on the blog.
So thank you.
As I’ve said, it takes time and effort to do this, but it’s all to help those find out a bit more what the great sport snooker has to offer…
To those who have purchased something in the reviews sections. SnookerZone appreciates it too.
Thank you again.
Our mission was always to try and help newbies, and even intermediate snooker players discover what’s out there in snooker, whether it be training aids, equipment, and books. We just want players to discover how much great stuff (and not so great stuff) is out there in the world of snooker.
SnookerZone will continue with that search and mission as much as we possibly can.
The site is here to serve you with information and advice as much as possible.
I want you to be a part of that mission…
Will you help us by continuing to support the cause?
Before leaving, here’s a quote from the great George Bernard Shaw.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.
So, again, I want to say to all those who’ve been supporting our project.
Keep well. Keep safe. Keep healthy. Keep happy.
