Mashable has a list of top twenty video memes. It is quite surprising realising how old some of these are now. Anyway, you can see the list, and watch the videos here.
This post is in reply to a tag from Camille, don’t you just love being tagged? Actually this one was a little different to normal tags and has actually had me thinking about it for a while. The subject of the tag is ‘who do I write for?’ and so with no further ado, let’s get on with it.
I blog, therefore I am would be a far too pretentious way to say that I simply write what is within, so I won’t say that, even if it is somewhat true (so does that make it unpretentious? – I need to get out more)
What I write depends on the context. So if it is at my livejournal account, what I write comes from deep within, it is my ‘journal’ (this post isn’t rocket science) and is used in that sense. I have always been interested in journaling but never got into the swing of it before the world of blogging, so my LJ is my journal.
I also write because I want to share, my imaginality site is my little way of sharing what I have learnt over the years at my current job. I work in a creative industry (yes, Andrew, I did struggle with calling SU an industry, but thought that keeping it vague would be good) and need to be as creative as possible. Therefore that site is where I share some creative insights.
How I write perhaps answers the tag question more effectively. I write in a style that I feel comfortable with, and I feel comfortable with who I am. I write as I live, a little cynically (I am working on that, a little is fine but it can be too much at times), a little cheekily, a bit aloof (ignorance with no desire to learn is a pet hate), but as friendly as I can be (I am not the most sociable chap on the planet [see myers-briggs INTP for confirmation] but online I find it much easier to say how I feel and share myself, and so I do).
So I think that those whom I write for are, myself and anyone else who wants to enjoy the journey that we are all embarked upon.
I’d like to thank Katy for tagging me – cheers, what joy 😉
Now, like everyone else who gets tagged I am also going to say that I don’t normally do this sort of thing, and then continue to do it – such is life. Well the tag has requested that I tell you Five things you didn’t know about me. As I don’t know you that may be a bit hard as I don’t know what you do know and what you don’t 🙂 But here we go…
1 I was born into an impoverished life in the East End of London; a true cockney. I spent the early formative part of my life here, eeking a living and trying to survive in the heart of gangland. I left this battlefield of Pauline Fowlers and Krays at the age of two months.
2 I used to go clubbing regularly when I lived in London – when I could stay awake beyond 10pm – however, I very rarely paid for entry as I was always on the guest list.
3 My ‘teen’ band once played in front of about 2,000 people at the London Hippodrome
4 I passed the grade 5 exam on the clarinet
5 I left school in the middle of my A-levels to seek fame and fortune in the music industry. Within ten years I was a mature student getting the degree eduction I should have got years before
Well there you go. Five things about me.
I won’t tag anyone else, as most of the people I know have already been tagged and as I hate doing this sort of thing myself, I won’t inflict it on anyone else. Unless of course you really want to 🙂
