Welcome to the photo gallery and blog of Jason Dale from Llanelli. Here you’ll find a selection of my favourite images and blogs about photography. I hope you enjoy the images which feature a wide range of subjects including landscapes, especially from around South Wales, and natural history.
In it’s time this blog has had several homes and far too many beginnings. Initially it was Croeso Photography but that became Tog.co.uk. After that domain was sold the blog became established at it’s current home. However, at the start of 2018 I mulled over moving to my long term personal blog at OneLittleDuck.co.uk. Eventually, I settled on sticking with my own name and merged everything into this current site.
What Was One Little Duck?
One Little Duck was the personal blog of Jason Dale, co-director of Loquax Ltd – the company behind Loquax. This blog originally started out focusing on affiliate marketing. It was nominated for Best Affiliate Blog in the A4UAwards 2008, 2009 and 2010. In 2009 the blog won the bigmouthmedia blogging excellence award and on 2010 it picked up the A4U Award for the best affiliate blog.
In 2011, the UK affiliate blogging scene was rapidly diminishing, as social media took hold, resulting in less posts. By 2012 this blog was officially on hiatus although it did make a brief return in 2015. However, I never wanted to get back to blogging about affiliate marketing so the site remained unloved for several years.
Following an emergency operation in December 2015, a diagnosis of Crohn’s Disease and a change in lifestyle, I decided to restart the blog in 2017 but as a more personal project.
I first got involved with the internet back in 1997. After studying for a PhD in Geochemistry at Newcastle University, the career pathway before me was not exactly what I’d hoped for, and so academic disillusionment led to internet interest. After entering a few competitions and being successful (prizes have included holidays to Barbados and a Vespa Scooter), Loquax was formed.
Stuff I Do!
Initially a hobby site, Loquax developed into a full time business. It encompasses it’s original subject of competitions, but we’re now more entrenched in the online gambling side of things. Among the sites that fall under the ‘Loquax’ banner are Snappy Bingo, Penny Bingo, Spins.co.uk and Slotsgold.co.uk.
Away from working, I’m a keen photographer and and my images can be found right here!!
