Just think about every time a funny video or meme or whatever makes it’s way to television or even Facebook, it’s usually been kicking around the proper internet (sorry Facebook) for at least a month.
my mum just asked me why I am using the precious hours between sleep and going to work again to go on the internet and what I am going to do on the internet.
My reply .
“what everyone else does on the internet … mooch around.”
…..Involves a lot more reading and a lot less writing that I had anticipated.
I have been sat here working at it all day and my word count remains at a rotund zero.
Tumblr may have a small part to play in this but I have seriously been working at it and still have no clue where to begin.
10,000 feels like a long long way away right now.
Wish me luck.
p.s This blog may very well become a dissertation progress report for the next for months, I apologise in advance for the tedious word count posts to come.
where you just meant to have a quick shuffty on the internet to see what is happening then get on with reading for uni and then suddenly its 7 hours later and you need to sleep.
she has her first laptop and is learning pretty quickly considering this time last week she couldn’t turn a computer on.
During all this SOPA stuff is as good a time as any to get her Internet savy I suppose lol before it all disappears!
anyhoo, this image …
just scared the living daylights out of her :) convinced her computer was a gonner!
I will fucking sue the inventor of Tumblr.
(not a rant, just a thought)
I was just thinking about how much Tumblr has changed since I started using it a couple of years ago, I don’t want to blame it on the fact that younger and younger people are using it but it may be a contributing factor, it seems to be getting a little “social networky”. Now I am not dissing the site and I am very glad it exists and I am aware that I don’t have to use the site. Also as I don’t follow anybody who is that way I suppose it doesn’t effect me personally too much. It only occurred to me just now as I unfollowed a couple of people who were filling up my dashboard with utter dross and pretentious idiocy, this hipster nonsense is another aspect of Tumblr which has broken out in the last year or so and has marred it a little for me.
Where was I ? …. Yes so I just unfollowed a couple of people and decided out of sheer curiosity to search the tag “unfollow” and what I saw really upset me, all these people going mad about people unfollwing them and calling them cunts etc I can’t understand that at all, if people don’t like your blog … well that’s just how it is isn’t it. Maybe if you posted something with a little substance or orginality people would carry on following your blog, also I was lead to believe that to follow someone meant you were actually interested in the stuff they had to say hence the use of the specific verb to “follow” there is definatley conotations of interest there a keenness that has nothing to do with the amount of followers you have or the amount of people you follow.
I had no idea that “follow for follow” existed! It is depressingly reminiscent of “friend for friend” on Myspace circa 2004 and the emergence of the Myspace celebrity with “5K” friends 5 of whom they knew in reality, take note potential Tumblr celebrities, the biggest Myspace celebrity from my particular neck of the internet woods in jolly old England that I knew of at the time now works at the cinema and has done for some time, the second one works in an electronics chain shop, so yeah something to consider. I don’t know how many people will read this as it contains so pictures and if it did it certainly wouldn’t be one of me with enough hairspray in to finish of the o-zone layer and my tits out so this may be a waste of time, and not that I operate on a follow for follow basis but I am aware of all of my handful of followers and I am very aware that none of this applies to any of you, maybe I will tag this as #justinbibernaked or something equally horrific and devastatingly popular on this once great apex of internet life :)
finally up on my prefered site, woop woop.
Dear planned early night,
I am going to have to postpone our meeting again, sorry dude I know I’m always doing this but I will definately make time for you soon I swear,
