Screen time to bedtime.

In an attempt to get better quality sleep (I can get to sleep quite easily but I wake a few hours later) I’ve decided to increase the time between using a screen (computer/phone) and me going to bed.

One problem with this is the only time I have to do my own thing is after my boy goes to bed and I go to bed, a time that is getting shorter & shorter. It’s also a time that is also filled with eating dinner, loading the dishwasher and making lunch/ironing clothes for work.

Having said that, the work I currently do in this time has never led to anything so maybe it won’t be too much of a sacrifice.

Feel free to let me know the amount of time you leave between last using a screen and going to bed. Cheers.

Is Piers Morgan my social media saviour?

I’m used to my tweets going largely ignored, liked by the same few people I already know but the other day I replied to a Piers Morgan tweet and I got over 50 likes. I’m fully aware that this is nothing if you are a social media influencer but I’m fully aware that I’m not a social media influencer.

It’s made me wonder if for me to be a success on Twitter do I need to trawl through Piers Morgan’s tweets looking for opportunities to reply to him. The danger of this is that after a while of being exposed to his thoughts I might end up thinking like him.

Perhaps obscurity isn’t too bad after all.

Bursting the poetry bubble

Apparently we’re currently experiencing a resurgence in poetry. This by my reckoning/The Guardian is the second such resurgence in just under 10 years. Naturally I have not been involved in either resurgence but should I ever return to world of spoken word, it’s safe to say that it will be the beginning of the end for poetry. And I don’t want to worry anyone riding the gravy train that is poetry but over the last couple of years I’ve built up a mini collection of new poems…. Watch this space!!

Wasting time saving time.

I’m always trying to find ways of best utilising my time mainly because I don’t have much of it. That’s why this Monday I tried to record a prongcast (a podcast I do with my mate Prong2) during my boy’s nap time.

There was always a risk this wouldn’t work as his nap times do vary but I thought it was a risk worth taking.

Naturally things did not go to plan as the boy didn’t take his nap til about 10 mins after Prong2 had gone home. I doubt I’ll be doing anything like this any time soon although knowing me I wouldn’t fully rule it out.

Do you still use business cards?

I recently made a handful of business cards promoting my prongcast.
I left one of these business cards in one South London bar and it got me thinking, do people still use business cards now we’re all linked on social media?

Let me know when physical marketing (business cards, flyers, posters etc worked for you. Thanks.

Bollards & cones to Birmingham

I’m somewhat fascinated by YouTubers, partly because I know so little about them and yet they are so massive.

Take James Charles for example, who brought Birmingham to a standstill at a meet and greet due to 8000 people turning up.

I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t be able to bring Birmingham to a standstill even if I went to Birmingham with bollards & cones with the sole intention of bringing it to a standstill.

Feel free to let me know which YouTubers you would recommend to someone like me (clueless & old). Cheers
