Can You Please Help A Friend Of Mine With Their PhD??? (Or - One Good Turn Deserves Another!)
You may have noticed a change in the font this blog is now being typed in.  One of my friends accidentally reminded me that the original inkyworld blog was typed in "Comic Sans MS" and this font is what I have now switched back to.  (All you need to know is that it is actually easier on my eyes as I type.)

I honestly never thought I would find myself offering to help someone with their studies (especially when they are at least three qualifications higher than my GCSEs) but - in this case I am very happy to make an exception to the rule.

I have a friend called Joshua (or Josh) Melville who is doing a PhD which I am actually very interested in because it links in very nicely with the current thinking behind this blog.

As you know I am very interested in "Visions on Inequality" - as in how people are treated differently (usually in a negative way) based on how the rest of the world sees them.

Josh attempted to explain his PhD to me (something to do with Sociology and number-crunching) - however, the bit I did understand is his wish to learn more about how "Personal Budgets" affect Disabled people.

As he was the one who had reminded me about the different font for my blog (hence the "One Good Turn Deserves Another" bit in the title to this blog post) I decided to ask him if I was allowed to mention his research on here - he jumped at the chance.

So- if you or anybody you know have experience of getting Advice, Information, and Support about Personal Budgets and you are willing to share your story with him he would appreciate the oppoturnity to interview you about it.  Your story will be treated in the strictest confidence as well as being completely anonymous.

If you think you can help him (either because you have a Personal Budget or you have had one) please contact him on 07908754085 or email him on joshmelville@gmail.com.
