likes, loves and lusts


Posted by on | |
I am what some might call a “digital native” I’ve grown up around things like email, internet, mobile, blogging etc, and as part of my professional life in new media, I continue to explore all the platforms I can find.

I’ve used Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, Second Life, Yoville, Gmail, MSN, Google Talk, Mxit, QQChat, Club Penguin, WordPress, Youtube, Skype, and Boxee. Some are great, some dreadful, but each has been fun to try, and that’s how my first blog was actually started - more as an exploration of the then fairly new idea of blogger as personal publisher than with any real sense of “I want to blog”.

But in doing all of these, I’ve found the ones I really enjoy. I love my blog, but really struggle to update it when it has no direction or purpose. FB is handy for keeping in touch with people, but little else. And my new favourite social media is Twitter. I think it’s fast overtaking the blogging realm as people want to update their lives shorter, quicker and with immediate effect (insert the miriad of iPhone social media apps here). I don’t always want to log in to your blog to see what you’re doing, but I’d love to have you in my Twitter feed. I’ll hear from you more often, and I’ll see you right there everytime I log in. So please, please, come play with me on Twitter!

But I digress. The reason for starting *another* blog is this. 2009 for me is about trying to expand my horizons and trying new things - getting out there, knowing more, being adventurous and trying to achieve. Even with the small things. Especially with the small things.

So while I’ll maintain this blog as a collection of those things I enjoy - those things that excite me - I’d now like to document a little of two thousand and mine - my journey to a better me. For that, I've started @ngelonfilm. A New space for a new mission.
