|A few of my favourite things – Moscots, Burt’s Bees and my new iPhone.|
It’s not often that I’ll be embarrassed into spending exorbitant amounts of money, but yesterday I had a meeting with some savvy social media types who took one look at my Blackberry and started laughing. “So… You’re not on Instagram?” they asked. I shook my head. Then they started talking about Viddy and I had to admit that I’d never heard of it. (If you haven’t either, don’t feel bad, it’s like Instagram for video.) At that point I realised what a bad blogger I’ve become. Usually bad bloggers are the types who don’t get round to posting for a few days, but I’m way worse: A bad blogger stuck in the social media world of 2008. It’s easy to justify, but the fact of the matter is that if one is to make a solid go of this job, then one must keep abreast of what’s happening. A plan of action was hatched. Phase One involved buying an iPhone, and Phase Two saw me signing up for Instagram (username isaaclikes_) and Viddy (username isaaclikes). FOLLOW ME! It’ll be worth it, I promise. Feel free to leave your social media tips, app recommendations, life coaching and/or complaints in the comments. So this is what 2012 looks like. Feels good to be home!
I LIKE YOU!
