About me


Donna Benjamin aka kattekrab - photo by Stewart Smith on FlickrKatteKrab is my online handle, or nick. It means Catscratch in Dutch. What's a handle or nick?

My "real name" is Donna Benjamin. I run a small business called Creative Contingencies and maintain a brief bio page on the cc.com.au website.

This blog is a mish mash of things. It's not a daily diary. It contains things I'm working on, things I'm thinking about, things that bother me, things that excite me. If I'm compelled to write, it will probably go here.

I've written a few articles in various places at various times, and have copied some of those to this site, when their previous online homes vanished.

You'll also find me on twitter, identi.ca, linked.in and openclipart.
