To paraphrase an old friend during a power outage:
“I’m holding a phone! I work with phones. That counts as work”
Anywhoo – if that’s the case then that’s me over there
Ok ok ok – so I’ve been neglecting my blog a little bit of late. I’ve had some good reasons mind. Most of which will hopefully become clear by the time you finish reading.
Er… that is if you finish reading at the end of this post. Not if you finish reading NOW for instance.
That’d be rubbish.
So let’s crack on shall we?!
Right – the ‘to-blog’ list from my last-but-one post read a little something like this:
- My business trip to San Francisco, (well – everything that happened after the first 24hrs anyway)
- Social Networks through SpinVox
- And all of the news and coverage that followed that… Because it’s NOW LIVE folks! Go! Get it!
- A couple of other blogging projects that I want to talk about
- Mobile Geeks of London III (I’m waiting on ONE PERSON to come back to me before we move ahead)
So let’s address each one shall we:
My business trip to San Francisco
I’m going to duck out at this point at say that it deserves a post all to itself. So I’m going to cheat a bit and defer that to another post. Not the best of starts.
Social Networks through SpinVox
Again – saving this for a separate post – it’s a bit of a SpinVox love in to be honest – and I can’t wait to share it!
(the news and coverage falls into this too)
Mobile Geeks of London III –
The plan was to get this out and done by the end of November – but what with it being two days until December you and I both know that that just is not going to happen. However, the ONE PERSON who I was waiting for DID get back to me – and we’re making plans to get it up and running early 2008. So watch this space.
The couple of other blogging projects that I’ve been working on – this is the thing that’s been taking up my time – hence the VOX neglect – but hey – I’m back now huh?
First up – Remember how I told you that you could Blog through SpinVox?
Well – NOOOOOOW – Yours truly is now officially ‘Editor-in-Chief’ over at the new SpinVox Blog.
Wheeeeee! Which is just cool.
(remind me to change my email sig – hehe)
It’s only been going for a little while now and, although I’m still finding my feet a little bit, I’ve got some great support from the team around me and hopefully it’ll go from strength to strength. Got some great ideas for the next three months or so…. so do me a favour and add the SpinVox Blog Feed to your RSS reader today!
(and if you don’t like the content – at least you know who to complain to!) 😉
Ok – so now – onto my other blogging project – and this kind of ties into my last post too – in that you’ve probably been waiting for ‘part 2’ of the review. Well – sorry to break it to you – but part 2 isn’t coming…
What happened was my mate Ewan Macleod, Editor over at SMS Text News, saw my “Future of Mobile – Part 1” post (which I did, live, from my N95 – thank you VOX – haven’t done that for a while), and dropped me a sneaky text asking if he could have a full write-up.
“Sure thing” I said. So he wrote a leading piece and then I followed it up with the full write up.
All of which seemed to go down pretty well. Ewan’s a top guy and I’ve done some things with him in the past so it was nice to actually sit down and properly contribute to his, quite frankly, fantastic site.
Anywhoo – this lead onto another conversation which in turn resulted with the following question –
“How about doing it regularly? Not reporting per se, but more of a weekly opinion piece… ”
So with SpinVox’ blessing (thanks guys!) “Whatley Wednesday” was born.
Subjects covered so far: Flashmobbing and the Nokia N81 8GB.
Again – quite a new project – but regular Whatleydude content, week in week out?! You can’t complain!
So where does that leave my personal blog?
My SpinVox-y chatter has found a home and now it seems my Mobile chatter has found a home too.
Well as I’ve already said – I’ve still got stuff I want to write up – but if you remember – I originally started this site so I could blog the Glastonbury Festival LIVE from my mobile.
And even though that had geeky overtones – it was still more of a personal thing.
So… I’m gonna try and take this blog back to its roots!
After all – the address is on my Moo Card so I best make sure the content is up to date!
Until next time….
