Strewth I’ve got a blog!

What did I do that for?

Well actually because I realised that a social media profile needs a strategy – you can’t just throw a few tweets about and hope for the best. Now it might be my over excessive controlling manner and actually you can do exactly that. But I’ve realised that a combination of forum posting and tweeting also requires somewhere to post longer thoughts and develop your voice – hence this blog.

And the other thing you realise is – and maybe it’s just me but I doubt it – when I create a tweet (only 140 chars) I spend an inordinate amount of time worrying about whether it meets the needs of my followers – people I’ve not asked to take an interest but whom nonetheless have put themselves out to do so. They deserve a reasonable amount of quality. Or they’ll unfollow me or defollow me whatever the correct term is, and that would make me feel I’ve failed. But blogs are different. I’ve not asked you to come here. I’ve got no idea who the heck you are. But welcome. Thanks for coming by. I hope you’ll stay a bit. Come back even. Perhaps leave a nice message. But if you don’t, neither of us have to worry. There was no commitment. We haven’t got that awkward morning after moment. Just grab your clothes and head off before breakfast. We can pretend it didn’t happen. And that’s why I’ve decided I like blogging. I hope that makes sense. And if it doesn’t I don’t really care because I don’t feel responsible for you being here. See you soon I hope 🙂
