Getting over my inner swinedog

One of the things I’ve touched on in a recent post is that I am trying my hardest to become more grounded and it involves getting back into a routine with life. This isn’t just having that cup of tea in the morning or getting up at the same time each day, but mainly it’s […]

50000 tweets later.. and I’m still here!

This morning I hit 50000 tweets which is incredibly scary. In fact I reached the number with a tweet to this post which is quite strange really! I joined Twitter just under four years ago and never expected to use it much. I mean it seemed like a good idea, but I didn’t really see […]

A worrying event for a blogger

In all the years I’ve been online I’ve had some bad reactions from people that disagreed with me online or simply wanted to annoy me on Xbox Live. Luckily, with having taken so much of my online identity ‘offline’ to Reading Tweetups and the like, I’ve not experienced anything bad so far. There were a few […]

This is what Twitter does for me

‘Why do you use Twitter’ is a question I am often asked by friends that either don’t use the service or have signed up, but not seen the point themselves. And I end up explaining the same things all over; I get to meet some great people, realise connections and, most importantly, I can stay […]

So it’s been a bit quiet on here.

This is the first time in eleven days that I’m using my laptop. It’s not even been switched on once in the meantime. There are several reasons for it: I’m still quite busy both with work and socially. For example this week’s Reading Tweetup. I haven’t got the internet at home. Which doesn’t bother me. […]

Recovering after a busy week

It’s been a long and busy week which is largely to do with something I’m not yet sharing on here or the internets at large. However, in addition to that this week’s been stressful. I wasn’t able to sleep properly for over a week for reasons I don’t know. I even laid off the coffee […]


I first joined Foursquare at some point last autumn, because I remember reading about it somewhere and wanted to have a look myself. I didn’t initially see much of a point in it, but started using it for the same way I originally starting using Twitter for – helping my bad memory by remembering what […]
